How To Improve Your Home’s Appearance

Whether you are looking to enhance the exterior of your forever home, or invest in updates that increase the value and sell, here are a few ideas to improve your home’s appearance that you may not have thought of!

Six Ways To Improve Your Home’s Appearance

Make the Front Door Pop

Every visitor to your home will see the front door- make it a remarkable experience! A bold color that is complementary to the roofing and siding colors can become a focal point and add noticeable beauty and character to the exterior of your home.

Update Your Siding

If it’s been a long time since the exterior of your home has been updated, new siding might make all the difference in the world. There are many new styles, colors, and materials that can dramatically alter curb appeal, like James Hardie fiber cement siding, and Mastic.

House Numbers

Replacing your address numbers can add a surprising freshness to your home’s curb appeal. Find something in your style, get creative,  The same goes for other details such as changing a wall-hanging mailbox, or updating the style of light fixtures.

Container Gardens

Nothing dresses up a front porch as quickly as a container garden. The right combination of seasonal plants can turn the exterior of your home into a warm, inviting place. With containers, a staggered and asymmetrical look can create a dynamic setting. The advantage to containers is you can easily experiment with location until you get it right.

Flower Gardens

Like container gardens, adding a flower garden in the front yard can beautify your home’s exterior. Consider planting a variety of flowers that bloom three seasons out of the year to maintain a beautiful look that extends the duration of the outdoor season. Stone or brick borders, as well as fresh mulch, can also enhance the appeal.

Roof Updates

A new roof makes more of an impact on the curb appeal of your home than you might think. With so many new styles and colors to choose from nowadays, homeowners are able to add a little flair with dynamic and aesthetically-pleasing shingles that match their personal style.  For example,  Owens Corning shingles are the icing on the cake of many freshly baked exterior renovations.

Take a walk around the exterior of your home. Many times the key to enhancing the exterior of your home rests in the details. If you take the time to address the right areas to improve your home’s appearance, you’ll end up with an exterior you can be proud of for a long time to come!
