The front of the house is where the first impression starts. If you want to sell your home, make the front look perfect.
A good first appearance can add as much as 5-10% to the value of a home.
Here are 7 Easy Steps to improving your home’s Curb Appeal:
1. Tidy Up
This is often one of the least expensive, yet most significant things you can do to improve the look of your home. Simply putting away unused items and cleaning up the driveway can make a world of difference.
2. Prune And Plant
Cleaning up your landscaping is another relatively easy step. Start by pruning trees and shrubs to enhance their beauty. Then do some planting. Brightly coloured flowers are a sure way to make your home look lively.
3. Cleaning And Washing
Cleaning the outer walls and washing the windows and frames are jobs that can be done easily yourself and make a big difference in the overall appearance of your home.
4. Create Visual Interest
Front gardens, fences, water features: These are just a few of the elements that can add style, character, and visual interest to your home.
5. Punch Up The Path
The walkway and/or steps that lead to your front door can do more than provide safe passage–they can set the tone for your home’s style, from casual to informal, simple to stately. Brick, concrete, stone, tile–you will not lack for choices of materials or styles.
6. Focus On Details
Small things can make a big difference. Your house numbers, front light, and potted plants on the porch all present a relatively inexpensive but highly influential opportunity to project style and excellence.
Above all, be sure your front door is in great shape. If it isn’t, either repaint or replace it.
7. Light The Way
Outdoor lighting is very effective at highlighting your home and rear garden after daylight hours. Your front garden should have functional path and front porch lighting as well as accent lighting to help create dramatic effects. DIY Superstores carry a variety of low-voltage lighting kits that are made for DIY installs.
