Increase Curb Appeal with these Easy Tips
Whether you are selling your home, updating your look, or just want to give it some curb appeal- we’ve got some great tips to help you! What does the front of your home present to the world? Is it warm and inviting, or standoffish? Does it express who you are and convey what you’d like it to? If so, wonderful! You’ve managed to create a home with curb appeal. If not, don’t fret. There’s no need to buy a new house or take on an extensive remodel to get the curb appeal you want. There are many ways to approach your exterior using paint to give its curb appeal a serious update.
Even if you’re not in the market for changing your exterior color scheme, a new coat of paint on your front door could be just the makeover your home needs. Whether it’s a new bold color you’ve always loved or a fresh crisp neutral, a new door color can have a powerful impact on your home’s facade. Such a move can make your home “new to you”. Here’s a look at some colors to consider. Picture them on your own home. Which one would you choose?
Whether simple or elaborate, trim is a finishing touch that often doesn’t get much thought and gets left the color it’s always been without consideration of beautiful alternatives. Whether you’re thinking fresh white, a bold hue or somewhere in between, there are so many ways just changing the color of your trim can increase your home’s curb appeal.
Freshen Up The Color
While changing the color of your home seems like the obvious answer for what you can do to give your home more curb appeal, the less obvious answer is to just refresh your home’s current color! A pristine exterior paint job not only increases your home’s curb appeal; it also helps protect its trim, flashing and siding from damage from the elements. That’s why maintaining your paint is so important. Letting it bubble and flake between paint jobs can end up harming your house. So, while picking an entirely new color is certainly an option, a refresh of its existing color can truly make your home look much more appealing! We recommend and only use the best paint for our clients, which is why we choose Sherwin Williams.
A new coat of paint isn’t the only way to spruce up the look of your home. If you want to give your home more curb appeal, one great way to start is by giving the exterior a thorough cleaning. An exterior that sparkles in the sun can make a world of difference. Homeowners spend tons of time working on updating their landscaping and decorations, and your home’s exterior being clean should be no exception to the update. Having your paint or stain look new and clean adds to the overall look and feel of your home.
Word On The Street
Even if you are not planning to sell your home anytime soon, a fresh and welcoming exterior is a wonderful thing to come home to each day. Go across the street and check your home out from a distance, maybe even snap a photo. Keep the picture handy, and see if any of these curb appeal investments will help your home look more welcoming.
