6 Ways To Get Instant Curb Appeal

When it comes to being a homeowner, the interior of your home isn’t the only important part. The exterior of your home is just as important. Whether you are buying, selling, or neither, curb appeal plays a big role when it comes to the appearance of your home. It’s easy to let the maintenance outside of your home slip. You may not realize what an important role curb appeal plays when it comes to selling your home. First impressions after all, are important. Think of the outside of your home as making a first impression on potential buyers or guests. Use these tips to spice up the outside of your home to make it more inviting, courtesy of Menas Real Estate.

 

  1. Paint Door, Trim, and Shutters

 

Adding a little paint to the outside of your home can make a big difference. Painting your front door a fun, yet appealing color can really make your home not only stand out, but also more inviting. A fresh coat of paint to your trim and shutters will also help add life to your home. Make sure to do your research on prepping the surface and the type of paint that works best for outdoor surfaces so your paint will hold up for years to come.

 

  1. Upgrade Mailbox

 

Something so simple can really make a difference. Whether your mailbox is mounted to your home or near the street, a new coat of paint or a new mailbox completely will be sure to bring life to the outside of your home. It will be sure to catch the eye of your guests or potential homebuyers and might just earn you a compliment from your mail carrier.

 

  1. Add Plants or Flower Beds

 

Whether your flower beds just need some TLC         or you need new plants all together, this is a great way to spruce up your home’s curb appeal. If you already have flower beds outside of your home some new mulch and new plants can give them that refreshed look. If you are in need of plants or flowers outside of your home, flower beds aren’t the only way to add color to your home especially if you don’t have the space. Plant boxes on your windows or porch rails is also a simple way to add flowers and color to the outside of your home without taking up too much space.

 

  1. Outdoor Decor

 

No matter the size of your outdoor space, there are many ways to create a functional seating area outside of your home. Having a chair or two on your porch can really catch the eye of your neighbors and guests. Also an outdoor stool can double as a seat or ottoman. Don’t let the small space scare you away from outdoor decor. Make sure your outdoor art and furniture are weather resistant so you get the most use possible out of them and don’t have to worry about replacing them as often. Outdoor decor is sure to add the most life to the outside of your home and make it more inviting.

 

  1. Exterior Lighting

 

Having exterior lighting is not only important for the appearance outside of your home, but for safety reasons as well. If you already have exterior lighting, some new fixtures can make this project simple. Lights with wiring aren’t the only option, there are also solar-powered lights that will help illuminate the outside of your home. Adding lights to the side of your home, your porch, and walking paths will not only make your home look beautiful, but also add a sense of safety and security. There are all different types to choose from. String lights might be better for patio areas while motion sensor lights might be better for pathways. Do some research and make sure to choose the best outdoor lighting for you and your family.

 

  1. Well-Manicured Yard

 

A fresh coat of paint, a new mailbox, and new outdoor furniture might make your home stand out, but it’s all for nothing if you have an unkept and unruly lawn. This tip might seem obvious, but nonetheless is the most important. No matter how many beautiful flowers you add, or how awesome that new color on your front door looks, your neighbors and guests won’t see past that wild and unkept yard. Make sure all of your hard work isn’t for nothing and is the main focus of your home. Don’t let an overgrown yard steal the show.

 

 

While there are several ways to add curb appeal to your home, these tips will hopefully get your creative juices flowing. Remember to have fun with it and choose the right style for you and the outside of your home.
