The front of your home is the first thing that potential buyers will see whether they are driving by, pulling up to walk through the home, or even just looking online. The exterior of your property can make a potential buyer want to see what’s inside, or they could skip right past it! You can increase the curb appeal of your home without spending a lot of time or money with these 5 easy tips!
Of course, not every home has the opportunity to create perfect symmetry around the front door, but if your home does, it’s one of the easiest ways to boost the curb appeal instantly! Having matching planters, flowers, light fixtures, chairs, or other front porch decor perfectly arranged to mirror each side of your front door is incredibly pleasing to the eye and will make your home extra welcoming for buyers when they enter the home.
Give Your Home Life
One obvious way to increase the curb appeal of your home is to plant flowers, trees, and shrubbery in the front yard. But, many homeowners are taking this to the next level! Window boxes are one way to bring color and plant life to a yard that might not be big enough for flowerbeds. Consider adding a container garden to the front porch! Planting things like strawberries, peppers, or herbs in planter boxes is a dynamic way to showcase the versatility of the outdoor space. And, don’t forget to spruce up the flowerbeds that you already have! Weeding your flowerbeds and laying new mulch will instantly elevate the curb appeal of your property!
Update Your House Numbers
Most homes have fairly basic and generic addresses somewhere on the front of the house. Consider replacing these with something bold or even a little eccentric! The larger the house numbers, the easier they are to see from the street, and they can add a lot of personality to the home. House numbers are no longer simply a necessary function to the front of your house, but can be an impressive part of your exterior decor!
Upgrade Your Mailbox
Much like house numbers, mailboxes are a functional part of the front of a home that homeowners are turning into complimentary exterior accents. Look for a new mailbox that compliments the fixtures of the front of the home. Consider planting flowers around your mailbox to bring color and life to that space in the yard many people often overlook. And adding house numbers to the front or side of your mailbox that match the font type of the new numbers on your home will be aesthetically pleasing!
Front Door Face Lift
One way to make your home stand out in a neighborhood is to paint the front door! Not only is it a budget friendly way to increase the curb appeal of your home, it can make your home look and feel warm and welcoming, bright and fun, or elegant and charming depending on the color you choose. While a red front door is a classic and bold choice, and will definitely make your home stand out, many homeowners are opting for more unique front door colors such as teal, orange, or bright yellow!
