You never get a second chance to make a great first impression! Boosting your home’s curb appeal is a great way to improve the look of your home while also making it more inviting to friends, family and potential home buyers. Here are some of the best ways to effectively enhance your home’s curb appeal.
Spruce Up Your Landscaping
Keeping a well-kept front yard can work wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Adding some tasteful pops of color with flowers and colorful bushes help give your home some character and show that you take pride in the exterior aesthetics of your home. Sprucing up your landscaping doesn’t have to break the bank, either! Purchasing low-maintenance plants at your local nursery and planting them yourself is a great way to customize your yard at a reasonable price.
Invest in a New Roof
Believe it or not, 50-60% of the visible exterior of your home is your roof! This means that your roof plays a huge impact on the overall aesthetics of your home. Color, design and condition all contribute to the curb appeal and value of your home. If your roof is outdated, in poor condition or maybe in need of a re-vamp, we recommend a roof inspection to determine whether your roof could benefit for maintenance, repairs or replacement. This is an investment that is sure to enhance your curb appeal!
Replace Gutters and Downspouts
Older gutter systems can often have drainage issues and lead to rust, peeling paint and other problems. Replacing your gutters provides a nice aesthetic appeal and can improve the overall look around your home. Plus, it’s always a good idea to ensure that your guttering system is working properly! Clogged drains and other issues can cause damage to your home if not addressed.
Tastefully decorating for the holidays can make your home look warmer and more inviting. Even if there isn’t a holiday to decorate for, simply adding a doormat and a couple of nicely arranged potted plants near the entrance of your home can work wonders. This makes the entrance to your home an inviting focal point that will capture people’s attention.
Pick Up the Paintbrush
House looking a little worn-down? A fresh coat of paint can quickly breathe new life into the exterior of your home! Not sure about painting your whole house? Consider painting your shutters or front door. Adding a little color to these accent items can help add character to your home while also giving it a new look.
