First impressions matter, and if someone tells you otherwise, they are probably lying. This counts for your home too.
Your home’s exterior is like the cover of a movie’s DVD, giving a preview of what’s inside. That said, whether you want to sell your home or make some improvements, improving the curb appeal is a great way to boost the home’s value.
Enlisted below are a few tips and tricks that can add an instant wow factor to your home’s exterior.
Add Beauty To Your Front Door
Your front door is probably one of the first things visitors, guests notice about your home. So, make your door pop and dress it up.
Paint your front door bold so that it enhances other colours of your home’s exterior. If your front door is in bad shape, consider replacing it.
Change the door’s existing hardware. Use all-year-round wreaths to add a dose of beauty to your door.
Your front door speaks volumes about your home’s interior so decorate it in a way that reflects your personal style.
Add Some Fresh Greenery
Go green. It is one of the easiest ways to add greenery and curb appeal to your home. Add fresh greenery and renew old planter beds by adding new mulch.
If you don’t have enough money to create a garden, simply plant shrubs or fill pots with colourful flowers for year-round-greenery.
Use planters to highlight key visual points.
Outdoor Louvres can be integrated into different parts of your home. They add style and value to your property.
Sliding louvred doors are efficient insulators, keeping your home warm in the winters and cool in the summers. They also allow for appropriate ventilation.
External louvres or louvred roofs not only improve the aesthetic appeal of the property but also make your outdoor space more inviting and enticing. They are also a great shading solution and provide complete rain protection.
Let There Be Light
Outdoor lighting not only makes your entryway more attractive, but it also adds security. Replace your old outdoor lighting fixtures with new ones for porch, landscape, patio, and walkways.
If you want your front door to look more bright at night, consider adding weatherproof wall sconces. If you already have them, clean all the debris around the fixture and it will automatically make the outdoor space more bright.
Wash The House
There is nothing more satisfying than washing the patio, porch, siding, deck, walkaway, and driveway. Use a pressure washer for your walls. If you don’t have a pressure washer, rent one or else scrub the walls with a log brush and soapy solution and then rinse.
Be careful of the light fixtures, electrical wires, etc. Don’t play around with water. Clean the cobwebs and debris with a cobweb duster. If the house wash isn’t enough, consider getting the house painted.
Style The Outdoor Space
Create a beautiful garden and add outdoor seating to your garden space. Select all the furniture items that you can utilize for this space and arrange them wisely. If you are not working under a budget, you can also buy beautiful outdoor furniture.
If you have a small space, add a small table and a few chairs with furry cushions. For a larger area, consider adding some extra charm by setting up an outdoor dining set.
Clear The Gutters
Call professionals to clear the leaves and debris from your gutters and downspouts, both from inside and outside. In case your gutter system is really old, replace it with a newer gutter system. Clogged gutters can damage your roof.
If you plan ahead, you can improve the curb appeal of your home in no time. Even if your home already has a lot of beautiful elements, with these tips, you can make the final improvements so that your home looks its best. You will definitely be amazed by the results.
