The exterior of your home is the first impression it makes — don’t you want it to be a good one?
Luckily, improving the exterior of your home is easily achieved with some small tweaks and routine upkeep. Before you know it, your house and yard will be making all the passersby jealous.
Try these five quick tips to elevate your home’s curb appeal:
Both maintaining your yard and adding some greenery — whether bushes, trees or flowers — are great ways to make your home look more settled and put together. If you aren’t someone with a natural green thumb, go for low maintenance plants and flowers that will bloom annually.
Create an inviting walkway
Make your home look accessible and open by creating a walkway that welcomes visitors. Put in new paving stones or power wash your current pathway and trim back any overgrowth.
Paint your door
Adding a fresh coat of paint — and a bright color! — to your door will make the entrance to your home pop. Don’t be afraid to go bold.
Replace your shutters
Shutters add instant visual intrigue and variety to your home’s exterior. If your current shutters aren’t adding much, replace them with a new color and style that speaks to your home’s personality.
Upgrade your mailbox
If your mailbox is dingy and dented, it’s time for an upgrade. While a good cleaning and a fresh coat of paint can go a long way, sometimes you just need to go out with the old and in with the new.
By investing in a few new upgrades (and adding in some elbow grease), the front of your home is bound to start turning heads.
Start with the shutters — we can help.
