5 Easy Ways To Increase Your Curb Appeal

Whether you want to improve the look of the front or backyard of your home to improve your chances of selling for a good price to a owner you’ll like, or improve the aesthetic for your neighborhood, deter crime, and decrease the likelihood of burglary, the task doesn’t have to be overwhelming or costly. Here are 5 easy ways to increase the curb appeal of your home.

Paint your trim

Painting your trim can make your home look polished. Be sure to choose a quality paint and use primer to insure it’s a lasting job. White is a popular color, but you can work with the color scheme of your home to choose the right color to provide the pop you want. If you live in a homeowner’s association or want to comply with city ordinances, acquire the approval from them to paint your home.

Install a bright colored door

Another way to give your home more personality is to buy a new door. Red is often a door color that makes magazine covers, but you can choose another and still get the results you’re looking for. Not only are colors a choice to make, windows, door knockers, and handles are all other points of interest you can add to. You can also add peep holes and mail slots, decorative wreaths or door bells to add charm and security.

Upgrade your mailbox

Mailboxes run in the range of about 20.00 and can be the first thing a passerby sees. Before upgrading your mailbox, be sure to know the codes you need to follow to be in line with your city or state ordinance such as how it must be secured in the ground and how far from the street it must be.

Install visible house numbers

Having visible house numbers makes it easier for guests to find your home, and can also add more charm and personality. Choose a placement that is highly visible such as down a support beam of the porch, the side or middle of the garage, on the mailbox, or inlaid in the brick of the garage.

Install new exterior lights

You can install ground lights through out your yard, either horizontally through out the garden beds surrounding the home or on both sides of the walk up to the house. Other options include replacing porch lights with bright, charming fixtures of your choice or a censor activity light on your garage/backyard. Lighting will deter crime more than any other feature.
