Your home is your most significant asset. It’s likely where you spend the most time, and it serves as a reflection of you. When friends or family pull into the driveway, the exterior is the first thing they’ll see. It impacts your housing value and generates the ever-valuable first impression.
Below are a few time-tested ways to beautify your home, many of which you can handle immediately.
Paint the Front Door
The front door is the focal point for the exterior of your home. Painting it a bold red or blue will help it stand out and attract attention. It’ll draw eyeballs to the center.
Add Landscape Lighting
The right landscape lighting can drastically beautify your home. The symmetry of well-placed and ornate lighting adds a visual element during the day. The right lighting enhances the look of your home after the sun goes down as well.
Replace the Siding
Are you dreaming of a colonial look to your home? Fiber cement siding is a low maintenance and reliable choice for achieving this classic look. A beautiful cedar or redwood siding can give your home a rustic, natural appeal. Vinyl siding can give your home a modern, durable and versatile look at an affordable cost. It’s important to consider your vision and goals for your home, and do a thorough analysis of your options.
Re-doing your home’s driveway is a powerful way to beautify your home. Concrete and asphalt are the most common choices – and both look great. For something that might pop, and add to the curb appeal, you can also try stamped concrete or brick.
Replace the Mailbox
A mailbox seems like a minor detail, but it can have a significant impact. If yours is showing signs of wear and tear, or simply looks dated, it may be time to replace. This can have a significant impact on the look of your home.
Your gutters can have a tremendous impact on the look and feel of your home. Aesthetically, they provide an outline of the exterior. Are they set up in a way that maximizes their impact, and adds appeal to your home? Maybe they can serve as a supplemental watering system for your flower gardens as they pump excess water away from your home. Aluminum and vinyl gutters provide a classic appeal. Half round, K-style or copper gutters can make your home’s curb appeal pop.
You don’t have to try everything at once. You can cherry-pick through the process, and see what works for you. For help finding the right siding or gutters for your home, contact us today!
