Whether you are trying to sell your home or just want to make it look nicer for your own comfort, curb appeal is so important. The outside of your home is the first thing that people see, so you want to make a good first impression. The outside of your home should be welcoming, visually appealing, and reflect your personal style as well. Here are five tips for sprucing up your curb appeal!
Don’t Forget the Roof
One of the most important and also most overlooked elements of good curb appeal is the roof. Often times, homeowners don’t even look twice at their roof when entering and leaving the home, but ensuring that your roof is in good shape will make your yard look so much nicer.
You want to check for any broken or damaged shingles as well as make sure it doesn’t need to be cleaned.
When trying to sell your home, you want to make the house numbers easy to see. This ensures that prospective buyers are able to easily find the home. However, you don’t just want them to be easily visible. Instead, they should stand out and be unique as well.
Consider the style of your home when choosing a design for your house numbers and have the numbers compliment said style.
It doesn’t matter how you decorate your yard if the space and home itself looks dirty and dingy. A pressure washer is a good investment for cleaning your home’s exterior, but they can also easily be rented.
You should take the time to pressure wash any decks, siding, walkways, and driveways. You may not realize just how dirty these areas are until you clean them.
There are specific plants in bloom every season, so there is no reason not to incorporate some beautiful plants onto your lawn! Though it will require a little more work, it is always better to plant real flowers versus using artificial ones.
Real flowers give your lawn a more natural, authentic look. This is a great way to instantly spruce up your curb appeal and there are so many vibrant colors and types of flowers to choose from to match your home’s aesthetic.
If you want to make your lawn stand out from the rest, consider some unique lighting fixtures. You can strategically place your lighting so that it highlights the best features of your home’s exterior and landscaping.
Lighting up your walkway also adds an element of practicality, making it easier for your guests to navigate to your front door at night time. Natural lighting is also a great appeal when selling a home. Open up your windows and curtains to brighten up your home’s interior and enhance curb appeal.
