Instant Curb Appeal

If you’re thinking of selling your house, or just want to update your space, making improvements to your home’s curb appeal is a great place to start! Unlike a pricier bathroom renovation or kitchen redesign, there are lots of easy ways you can boost your home’s curb appeal on a budget. Here are some helpful tips to get you started:


- One of the most impactful ways to boost curb appeal is to add some fresh greenery and flowers. Use plants to accentuate and frame key visual points, like windows and entryways, and if you don’t have room for a standing planter, hook up a hanging one.


- Your front door is the most visible, eye-catching feature on the exterior of your home. Fixing it up and repainting it is a project that can easily be done in an afternoon.


- If you already have a sconce or hanging pendant by your front door, replace it with something a bit more fun and fresh. Clean off all cobwebs and debris around outdoor light fixtures, which will instantly make the space appear more bright and clean.


- Make a point of clearing out your gutters regularly. While you’re up there, scrub or pressure-wash the exterior of your gutters so they look bright, clean, and refreshed.
