Who’s ready for some good weather and yard work? I am! You too? Good stuff. Because your home’s exterior is the focal point of your house. It’s the first thing visitors see when they arrive. Whether you’re selling and want to up the curb appeal to make your house more appealing for buyers or you just want a nice view when you pull in the driveway, we’ve got some great ideas to up the wow factor for your home.
Paint The Front Door
Your front door is what greets your visitors and welcomes them into your home. Make a statement with paint. Go bold, go neutral, but go something.
Add Some Planters
Planters add visual appeal to your porch, doorway, and front steps. If you pot the plants yourselves and upcycle old planters, you can save a bit of change and have something completely unique. No time? Nurseries have tons of ready made planters to go.
Update the Driveway
Updating the driveway isn’t always budget friendly but it makes a huge change in terms of curb appeal.
These travertine brick pavers make this driveway a feature of the home.
Just resealing the driveway makes a huge difference in terms of making your house look more appealing.
Add some lighting
It’s nice to be greeted by pretty lighting, especially at night.
A larger lantern adds instant lighting and charm to this pretty house.
Let’s be honest, landscaping and plants aren’t cheap but if you do it yourself and add plantings over time, it takes the edge off the whole sticker shock thing.
Ditch the Front Lawn Completely
Really want to up the wow factor? Get rid of the front lawn and add landscaping. A double win for curb appeal and no more grass to cut.
