WAYS TO IMPROVE
YOUR CURB APPEAL
Did you know that your home can make a serious first impression? That’s right – your curb appeal catches the eyes of anyone who drives or walks by. It’s time to boost your curb appeal and make all your neighbors jealous with these easy, quick, and affordable improvements. Our team HOPEs that this list of recommendations will help you feel confident in showing off your beautiful home!
Simply giving your home a fresh coat of paint will immediately liven up your exterior and shed off a few years! Using a wood stain or applying a new coat of paint to your front door is also an easy way to enhance your entry. Consider using a fun color on the door like red, yellow, or navy to add contrast from the rest of the home!
Ensure that your lawn is mowed regularly – the crisper the lawn, the better! Next, replace the mulch if it’s old, and take out any weeds growing out of control. It’s also important to add shrubbery, bright flowers for natural color, and possibly even window boxes for those new flowers. You can check out your local plant nursery for the best prices and high-quality plants. Lastly, highly consider planting trees. Not only are trees used to create shade and frame homes, but they also help the environment flourish!
LIGHT UP YOUR EXTERIOR
Add solar lights to the pathway leading up to your front door for a more inviting look! You can also add a light fixture on the porch to illuminate your entryway for yourself and guests. Choose light fixtures that are modern, easy to install, functional, and compliment the rest of your home.
Rusty, old hardware is not a good look. Make sure to replace metal finish door hardware and consider updating your house numbers. Guests typically look at those numbers to identify your home which is why it’s so important they look fresh and modern! Swapping out junky street numbers can be transformative and only takes about $15 and 15 minutes!
INVITING FRONT ENTRY
Nothing says curb appeal like a beautiful front entryway. Your door, front stairs, railing, and porch, are all important factors for your entry’s appearance. They should all be inspected, fixed, or painted if necessary. Simple additions like a welcome mat, potted flowers, hanging plants, and a wreath on the front door create a delightful environment. Buying outdoor furniture like a small couch, porch swing, or bench is appealing to guests and creates a comfortable space! Lastly, pressure wash your porch and driveway to remove any dirt, debris, and stains.
Our team at Roofing for HOPE can also help improve your curb appeal by renovating your yard fencing. Fences are important for security, keeping unwanted visitors out and children/pets in. Beautifully crafted fences also add character to the home as well as help frame it. Whether your fence is extremely old and needs replacing, or there are simply cracks and missing pieces, we have you covered.
The exterior of your home conveys an important message – what your home entails before you even step foot inside. There are unlimited possibilities to jazz up your curb appeal, so HOPEfully by implementing these ideas, you can wow your neighbors, guests, friends, and family! Don’t forget to give us a call if you need any exterior renovations. We always want to help in any way we can!
