Curb appeal: it's one of the most important attributes of your home. If you're planning to sell in the near future, you want to give potential buyers a great opinion of your home from the moment they pull up at the curb. If you aren't, you still want to raise that important curb appeal and make your visitors feel welcome as they fall in love with your home. These strategies will make raising your curb appeal easy.
1. Add a Pop of Color
Spring is an amazing time of year to add curb appeal to your home because it's simpler than ever. Visit a local nursery and choose flowers that you fall in love with. Annuals will be there for years to come! Tidy your flowerbeds or put in pretty beds around walkways or near the house. If you don't have space for beds, consider putting pots on your porch or near your front door.
2. Check Your Green
Take a look at your grass. If it's brown and sparse even in the spring, it's time to update it! Contact a lawn company or go the DIY route and spread some grass seed. You'll be amazed by the difference when your lawn is lush and green through the spring and summer months.
3. Tidy Up the Front Door
Take a look at your front door. Has it become weather-beaten and old? Repaint your front door. Get creative and paint it a bright color that adds a hint of personality. Simply painting the door is a cost-effective upgrade that will have your home looking great--and you falling in love with it all over again.
4. Paint Your Mailbox
Take a look at your mailbox. Has it seen better days? You can replace it or, if you're feeling creative, break out your paint and make it unique! A gorgeous mailbox can add personality to your home and help your guests find you.
Adding curb appeal to your home doesn't have to be an expensive proposition. With these simple tips, you can tidy up and have your home looking its best in no time. It's the perfect way to get outside, enjoy the spring, and see exactly how lovely your home can be.
