The way your home looks from the street is going to generate first impressions. Whether you are looking to stay put in your current location for time to come, or you are looking to sell and up the value of your home, enhancing the exterior of your home can have a drastic impact.
Below are some suggestions for upping your curb appeal.
Make the Front Door Pop
A bold color for the front door adds a light touch and a noticeable beauty to the exterior of your home. The eyes will unconsciously be drawn to the focal point of your property.
Update Your Siding
If it’s been a long time since the exterior of your home has been updated, quality siding might make all the difference in the world. The right style and color can make you fall in love with the exterior of your home.
Replacing your address numbers can add a surprising freshness to your home’s exterior. The same goes for other details such as changing a wall-hanging mailbox or light fixtures.
Nothing dresses up a front porch as quickly as a container garden. The right combination of seasonal plants can turn the exterior of your home into a warm, inviting place. With containers, a staggered and asymmetrical look can create a dynamic setting. The advantage to containers is you can easily experiment with location until you get it right.
Adding or enhancing a flower garden in the front yard can beautify your home’s exterior. Consider planting a variety of flowers that bloom three seasons out of the year to maintain a beautiful look that extends the duration of the outdoor season. Stone or brick borders, as well as fresh mulch, can also enhance the appeal.
A new roof makes more of an impact on the curb appeal of your home than you might think. A professionally installed Owens Corning roofing system can help solidify the details for a great-looking home exterior.
Take a walk around the exterior of your home. Many times the key to enhancing the exterior of your home rests in the details. If you take the time to address the right areas to improve your home’s apperance, you’ll end up with an exterior you can be proud of for a long time to come!
