5 Steps to Dramatically Improve Curb Appeal

The entrance of your home speaks volumes. Here are 5 steps you can take to guarantee that the entrance to your home makes a positive, lasting impression.

A Gorgeous Front Door

Your front door is the focal point of your home. If your present door isn’t cutting it there are many beautiful styles and designs available to choose from that will add charm and flair. Additionally, modern designs are far superior when it comes to energy efficiency which can help to reduce those heating bills.

Eye-catching Landscaping

When people pull into your driveway, their eyes are usually drawn to the landscape, various doors, walkway and other areas fronting the street. A well-manicured lawn, garden and nice doors can work wonders for boosting curb appeal.

Light It Up

Take your landscaping to the next level with some lighting features. Lighting can enhance your homes exterior by highlighting certain areas, like pillars or even trees. It can also add an extra notch of safety to darkened pathways and stairways which can be far more welcoming for guests.

A More Picturesque Driveway

You can easily improve the curb appeal of your home by improving your driveway. Your driveway is the path that leads people to your home, as such it’s also an important feature. Make a favourable impression by ensuring there are no obvious cracks, oil stains, or weeds growing along the sides. You can take it to the next level you can and add some wow by adding seasonal planters, interlocking stones or other decorative items / accents.

Stunning New Windows

A great way to add curb appeal is to simply clean your windows, both the glass and the frames, inside and out. If your windows haven’t had a good cleaning in a while, mix a solution of Sunlight dish soap with warm water, wet the exterior frames and use a NON ABRASIVE sponge to gently scrub the exterior of each window and rinse when done. When complete clean the glass both inside & out using a squeegee. If this sounds like too much work hire a window cleaning company to do the work. Not only will this improve the look of your home it will help to maintain your windows to ensure maximum life. An attractive exterior can make or break a home. And it’s not difficult nor does it need to cost you a lot of money to make a lasting impression.
