Your homes first impression is how it looks from the outside. If they like what they see outside, they are going to be interested in what's inside. These are some quick and cost efficient ways to give your home the curb appeal to draw in family, friends, and buyers.
Tip 1: Upgrade the Hardware
Elements that can add interest and instant style to your home exterior are a wall-mounted mailbox, a new entry door lockset, an over head light fixture, and more visible and modern house numbers. These items can get dated over time and need some freshening up. Make sure to collectively develop a theme (ie. Oiled bronze finish) to bring every thing together aesthetically.
Tip 2: Adorn the front Door
The front door of your home is the central point and center of where curb appeal should lie. Maybe give your door and fresh coat of paint in an eye-popping color. Installing a custom wooden door is another option if it's time to put your old door to rest. In addition, a wreath reflecting your style is an added touch to make your home inviting.
Tip 3: Outdoor Lighting
The curb appeal of your home needs to be visible at night as well as during the day. Adding landscape lighting (solar is a less expensive option) makes an impact on the curb appeal, while providing safety and security around your home. Illuminating walkways, trees, and interesting angles of your are just a few ways to capture the appeal of your home.
