5 Secrets to Amazing Curb Appeal
What your home looks like on the outside tells people a lot about what they’ll find inside. Whether you’re selling your home or just want to create the right first impression in your neighborhood, you’ll need to step outside your front door when you want to create great curb appeal.
Exterior home improvements can make a significant difference in getting potential buyers interested in your home and can oftentimes increase its value, too. Dale’s Remodeling recommends these five home improvement projects to help you get started creating amazing curb appeal everyone is sure to love.
- Pops of Color
Dazzle your guests with a *pop* of color! A brightly painted door and a few adornments—such as window boxes and hanging baskets with matching flowers—will spark the interest of everyone traveling down your street.
2. Unique Architectural Features
It’s the interesting parts of a home that give it unforgettable character. Emphasize your home’s best features with dramatic paint combinations and outdoor lighting that will highlight the areas that will draw the most interest. And, if you’re planning to add space to your structure considering making it a focal point by adding a bay window or peaked roof.
3. Welcoming Porches
Let your front porch extend a warm welcome to your guests with beautiful railing and decking materials that will provide safe entry for everyone. There are many durable, fade-resistant materials available today to keep your porch looking clean and bright long after it’s installed.
4. Statement Doors and Windows
Make a bold statement about your home with an attention grabbing front door. Compliment your home’s existing architecture with a style, color, and texture that adds interest and you will be making a declaration of the beautifully unique home that is found just beyond the threshold.
5. Landscaped Walkways
Make your guests feel like royalty by offering them a walkway fit for a king and queen. Easy to care for plants and graceful paths and stairways creates a beautiful entry into your “castle.”
