Sometimes it only takes a few simple changes to dress up the exterior of a house add some curb appeal. Below are a few tips to perk up your home.
Paint the front door: Painting the front door a bold colour, like red, black, purple, or green, can add a boost to your home and make it stand out.
New lighting and hardware: Adding a new outside light, some solar lights, new railings, hardware for the doors, or replacing an old storm door can easily update the look of your home.
Repaint: Painting the trim, the stucco, or the siding can give a home the boost that it needs, and do so inexpensively.
Landscaping: By adding new shrubs, bushes, rocks, plants, or trees, the exterior can take on a fresh new look. Adding a new walk way by using different materials, like stones, or wood chips can also boost a tired look.
Focal point: Adding a focal point or accentuating those things that are unique to the home will draw attention to the parts you want to stand out.
Flowers, flower boxes, and topiaries: Spring and summer is a great time to inexpensively add lots of colour to the home. Topiaries add a classic look to the home without going overboard.
Climbing flowers and flowering vines: Climbing flowers and flowering vines add creativity and more colour to the areas where flower boxes and topiaries can’t go.
