Whether you’re considering selling your home or spiffing up a home that has been yours for years, we’re here with some ideas on creating the ultimate curb appeal.
Curb appeal can add a real spark for prospective home buyers or make the home you love to live in even more exciting. Use curb appeal to:
Helping your house sparkle on the outside doesn’t have to take a lot of time, effort or money. Consider a few of these areas to pack a punch in dressing up your home.
The front door. Replace it if it is in disrepair. Consider painting it a bold color to add some pop from the outside. Red or orange may be too much for you on the walls, but it’s a dramatic splash you can get away with in small doses. Adding a new doorknob is another simple and inexpensive update that can help add to the polished look of a newly painted door.
Lighting features. Add lighting features that allow your house to sparkle at night as well as in the day. Guide guests to the door with special lighting, or light up trees as an interesting night-time feature.
Hardscaping–Keeping up on walkways, driveways and even fences is important in order to give your home a polished look. Consider adding a new stone path to your front door, power washing your driveway, painting or even replacing your fence.
Flower Beds. Planting flowers, bushes and trees is a great way to add pizzazz to any yard, but keeping them healthy and well maintained will also keep your home looking well-cared-for. Trim shrubs, prune bushes and know when it’s time to uproot your current landscape and start over.
The Front Porch. It costs virtually nothing, but removing dirt and cobwebs from siding, windows, doors and porch furniture can make a big difference in sprucing up a front porch. A little elbow grease will go a long way in helping your house look fresh and new after the long winter we recently experienced in Tuscarawas County.
Quick Fixes. If you are in a hurry and don’t have a lot of time to give to curb appeal, consider a simple change such as a unique potted plant that can be easily removed later. Add a seasonal wreath, a new door mat or new house numbers to make create interest with little effort.
Whatever way you choose to create curb appeal, remember to stay true to your own style and add a flare that is uniquely yours.
