Your home’s curb appeal makes a great first impression, especially to potential buyers. With Spring-time quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to make some improvements. Here are some simple tricks that are low-cost and low-maintenance, to help you get started.
Refresh The Front Door
Your home’s front entry is the focal point of its curb appeal. Make a statement by painting your front door or upgrading those rusty door knobs for something more eye-catching.
Light It Up
Outdoor lighting makes a huge impact on your home’s curb appeal while also adding safety and security. You can install lighting fixtures to add as accent lighting, or perhaps illuminate a walking path in your front yard. Solar lights can be a great environmentally-friendly option!
Create A Garden
When creating a new garden, choose features that will frame your home rather than obscure it. Although opt for adding some bushy shrubs if you are looking to maintain some privacy. Include a mix of plant size, color, and texture and think about the time of year that they will blossom! You can also add some flower pots to create a more vibrant and inviting setting. Use bold, bright colours to create a big impact even if you don’t have a lot of space.
Give Some TLC To Your Driveway
If your driveway is cracked or stained or has weeds sprouting from it, you can upgrade the curb appeal without doing a complete redo. First repair the cracks and stains (and kill the weeds), then dress it up by adding stones or power-washing the concrete. Establishing a crisp, clear shift between paved and unpaved surfaces can help to offset a driveway and enhance a landscape.
