When it comes to having natural curb appeal, some homes simply have it – while others simply don’t. If your home is currently in the “don’t have it” category, there’s no need to despair – there are some focused things you can do to significantly boost your home’s external appearance!
Ready to make your home into one of the real visual attractions of your neighborhood? With the right vision and dedication, any home can benefit from these improvements:
Your home is more than just the building itself. It’s also defined by the land which surrounds it. Start with the ground, and work your way up. A lush, green lawn creates a wonderful canvas for the rest of your landscape. Tear out any old bushes or shrubs that detract from the look of your home. Add some blooming trees or other desired greenery.
Look beyond the plants to consider your driveway, walkways, and borders. Clean up these areas, and also considering adding some natural rock features.
In many ways, your front door is one of the central focal points of your home. Sometimes a simple coat of paint is all it takes to make your door stand out and create a better first impression. Alternatively, you could just replace the door entirely. With all the great designs, colors, and finishes on the market today, you’re sure to be able to find a replacement door you’ll love.
Your front door probably isn’t the only thing that could stand some paint. A fresh coat can really make your shutters and other trim really pop! Start by taking some time to envision which color or color combinations would be best for truly accenting your home and its features. You can choose some bold colors to really make these features stand out, or you can more subtle by going with different shades of the same color to create some visual interestand depth.
Siding does more than just cover your exterior walls; it’s really one of the central aspects of your home’s overall appearance. Perhaps your siding has gotten to the state where a simple coat of paint won’t do it justice. In that case, you might consider replacing it with some low-maintenance vinyl siding, or create some more visual interest through the textural depth of long-lasting fiber cement siding.
While there are some things you can do to dress up your windows, if your existing windows aren’t in good condition either, you’d be best served by going ahead and replacing them as well. Even if you work to improve everything else about your home and property, it’s hard to overcome the look of a cracked window or windows that are in a general state of disrepair. There are many great window replacement options to consider, including wood, vinyl, or various combination clad frames.
