Here are eight small changes that can make a big impact on your home’s curb appeal.
Put Fresh Paint On It
It might sound like common sense, but an updated coat of paint can transform your house from basic to stunning. Homeowners sometimes underestimate the difference fresh paint can make. If your home exterior is made of old brick, consider whitewashing it or installing a stone facade to make it more interesting.
Use Accent Siding
Horizontal siding gets the job done, but it can look monotonous when it covers a whole house. Fortunately, there are many other options. Shingles, decorative trim, and even corrugated metal are showing up on home exteriors, and when they’re done right, they look great! Consider using them to call attention to your second floor, your garage, or towers.
Install or Replace Shutters
Shutters can be a relatively low-cost way to add style to your windows. If you don’t have shutters, you might be surprised by all the styles available. If you do have shutters, but they’re old, it could be time for an update. Find a style that suits your home’s appearance and paint them in a color that harmonizes with the colors of your exterior, roof, and front door.
Enlarge the Windows
Natural light is a real selling point for homebuyers, and large windows are welcoming to guests. They offer residents a beautiful view of their surroundings. Consider enlarging your home’s windows, at least in the front where visitors will notice. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can always call in a professional like Springtree Restoration.
Install Exterior Lighting
Porch lights, landscaping lights and dramatic uplighting can transform the look of your front yard after dark. Start renovating your lights by choosing new fixtures and installing low-energy light bulbs on your front porch. As you add features to your home’s exterior, like accent walls and landscaping, consider using uplighting to draw attention to them.
Replace Your Garage Doors
Garage doors take up a lot of prime real estate on the front of many houses. If your garage doors are featured prominently, you’ll want to make sure they are in good condition. If they’re scratched or dented, it can detract from your home’s overall beauty. Likewise if they have an outdated style. Replacing them with new ones can make a huge difference.
Spruce Up Your Landscaping
You don’t have to spend a fortune to give your landscaping an overhaul. Mow the grass, trim the hedges, and remove any low-hanging tree limbs. Sweep off your driveway and sidewalk and plant some inexpensive border flowers. Add some mulch, and voila! Your front yard will have a new lease on life.
