Want your home to look good from the outside? Working on your home’s ‘curb appeal’ could help to boost the value of your home and make your home more welcoming to guests. Whilst you can take on large remodelling projects such as replacing your roof or relaying your driveway, there are simpler ways to make an impact.
How to add curb appeal to your home
Grow some flowers
Flowers can be an easy way to make the front of your home prettier and more welcoming. If you’ve got a front lawn, you could consider planting some flower beds. If not, you could always places some potted plants either side of your front door or using hanging flower baskets. It’s also possible to use window boxes to display flowers.
Clean your windows
Grubby windows will bring down the appearance of your home. Hiring some window cleaners could be worthwhile when trying to boost your curb appeal. You may be able to clean your windows yourself, however, you should take care when cleaning upper storey windows as this can be a dangerous job.
Clean your roof
Whilst getting a new roof fitted can certainly improve curb appeal, there are cheaper ways to improve the aesthetics of your roof. Simply cleaning your roof could make a big difference, helping to get rid of the dirt and moss that may have built up there. You’re best off hiring a professional roof cleaning company as this can be a hazardous job to take on yourself.
Add some exterior lighting
Exterior lighting can help to illuminate your home at night. This can make it easier to locate your home after dark and it can also improve your home’s security by making it harder for burglars to target your home without being detected. To save money on electricity, you can use solar lights or you can motion sensing lights.
Replace your front door
The front door is usually the first thing that people are drawn to when they look at a property. Having a colourful front door can help your home to stand out. You can shop for new front doors online.
