Whether you intend to sell the home or you want to improve its aesthetic and value, there are a few simple fixes to increase curb appeal for any property. While major renovations are appealing, sometimes it only takes a coat of paint or a new landscaping idea to make an impression. From decks to power washing, here are five ways to boost your home’s curb appeal.
How to Update Your Home’s Appearance
A front door that is clean, well-maintained, and painted an exciting, bright color has shown to increase people’s opinions of the property overall. If you have a front porch, make sure it is also refreshed with a coat of paint or finish. Add new porch furniture or other décor like welcome mats and door hangings.
While a well-manicured lawn and lush flowers and trees always spruce up a property, take landscaping to a new level with hardscaping. Add concrete planters, decorative stonewalls, or rustic paths to the design. Stone benches, patios, decks, and steps create depth and organize the yard.
If you already have a deck in place, refresh it to improve the yard’s look. Refinishing a deck not only gives its style a boost, but it also ensures that it is secure and safe. Replace any steps and gates with new hardware to finish the renovation.
4. Driveways & Walkways
A cracked driveway or sidewalk brings down the value of your property. Besides being an eyesore, broken, uneven walkways and driveways are also dangerous and can lead to trips and falls for anyone walking on them.
5. Power Wash
Dirt, dust, debris, and mildew build up on your vinyl siding or brick over time. One of the easiest ways to freshen up your exterior without repainting is to power wash it. Your home will look brand-new again after that top layer of grime is removed. Don’t forget to wash your decks, vinyl windows, doors, and other features as well.
