Have you ever thought about what your guests feel when they pull over at your place? Does the beautiful curb appeal of your home give them an inviting feeling? Or do the overgrown shrubs leave them disgusted. Talking about curb appeal, some houses have it while others can develop it by using the following five steps.
Let’s break it down.
1. Be Generous
Never shy away from investing in bigger projects. The projects that appear expensive tend to have a higher return on investment. Such are the projects which transform the overall appearance of your home into something amazing. A porch, a patio or a new asphalt driveway can not only make your home appear beautiful but also add to your home’s resale value.
2. Revamping the Landscape
Of all the renovation techniques to improve your home’s curb appeal, landscaping simply doesn’t go out of trend. The flowers around your house are as important as a fresh coat of paint. Landscaping can not only add to the curb appeal of your house but also hide the flaws if any.
While landscaping, keep the following points in mind.
Instead of using a single color throughout the place, use a combination of colors for a more vibrant feel.
Remove Those Bushes
The overgrown bushes affect the look of your home. Whatever you do, first get rid of those filthy looking overgrown bushes.
It is important to add flowers and plants but it is equally important to add rocks, borders and sidewalks.
3. Upgrade the Front Door
The front door is the most crucial component of your home. It is the first thing that the passerby see from the street making it the focal point of your home. If you want to improve the curb appeal of your house, start by working around the front door. Make a walkway that leads all the way up to your doorstep. You can even add plants and lights throughout the walkway. If you have the money, try replacing the door with a new one. There is a variety of materials, colors and finishes in the marketplace. If you plan on repainting the existing door, try to go for a rich vibrant color like a bright red. This will make the door appear visible the people walking by.
4. Follow the Following Details
- Have the mailbox painted, or install a new one.
- Write your house numbers in bold black digits and alphabets.
- Add some light to the entrance.
- Either replace the front door or replace the old and bland hardware on it.
- Invest in edging of your sidewalks with stones or pavers.
- To spot the flower beds, ad some solar lights.
- Surround the entryway with small potted plants
