Another great way to decide what improvements should be done, is to stand outside and really take some time to examine it. Pretend that you were about to purchase the house, and had never seen it. What things would you want changed? You can also have a friend you trust stand out with you and give some honest feedback. If you don’t know where to start, here are some great ways to increase your homes curb appeal.
Street Numbers: Changing out your homes street numbers is sure to make a huge difference. Consider choosing a good font, color, and sheen. Make sure you choose a font that fits the style of your home.
Front Door: A freshly painted door is a must. Perhaps you should change it to a hardwood door, or change the finish to glossy instead of matte. Again, you want to make sure that the front door choice matches the style of your home.
Porch Furniture: Porch furniture is a great way to add instant curb appeal to your home. This is because you want the outside of the home to look inviting, and this is a great simple way to achieve that.
Porch Lighting: Lighting is very important when it comes to a homes curb appeal. Consider updating lighting fixtures. Perhaps you should use sconces, a pendant light, or recessed lighting. There are endless choices when it comes to porch lighting, but the important goal is to make sure that the lighting is updated, and matches the homes theme.
Accents: Consider adding a bold accent that immediately attracts the viewers eye. Perhaps interesting fabric on the porch chairs, or a bright front do
Hardscaping: Perhaps your home needs a new driveway or some concrete built-in planters, or a new pathway. While these changes are much more of an investment than the other ideas on this list, they should be seriously considered if your current driveway or any pathways are uneven, or missing altogether.
Side Yard: It is essential to have a kept side yard; perhaps you need to add attractive fencing, clear out any weeds, or add a new pathway to the back yard. Whatever the need be, it is imperative that the side yard is neat and clean.
Front Lawn: The importance of a nice front lawn is obvious. Instead of having a bare front lawn, consider planting fresh flowers. This will, again, make the home look more inviting.
The Garage: The appearance of the garage door is just as important as the front door. If you need a new garage door altogether, or if it just needs fresh paint, it is important to do so. You don’t want a freshly painted door, and a garage with chipping paint. For further reading, see: 10 Ways to Add Curb Appeal, and, Seize the Season: 12 Upkeep Ideas to Add Curb Appeal.
