Never underestimate the power of good curb appeal in a home. A majority of people will only ever see the exterior of your home, so it’s absolutely worth investing time and money into making it look extraordinary. However, you don’t need lots of time or even lots of money to make an impressive curb appeal statement. Here are some of the best, fastest, least expensive ways to maximize your home’s curb appeal.
Little changes can go a long way in enhancing curb appeal. For instance, a standard home entryway doesn’t need a front porch or a new patio to make it stand out.
- Sometimes all it needs is a few oversized elements. Try adding oversized address numbers, oversized trim, or even some oversized planters on both sides of the front door. This will make the entry feel more distinctive.
- You might also find that eliminating ugly elements is just as essential as adding something new. Try camouflaging your power box, A/C units, or other eye sores by painting them the same color as your home or by covering them with an elegant wooden structure. You can also hide an ugly wall behind a beautiful trellis of ivy. You’ll add greenery and subtract an eye sore.
Curb appeal can also be upgraded through the use of color. Painting your front door a bright, vibrant color is one of the best, easiest ways to improve curb appeal. You can take this idea even further by multiplying that color throughout the rest of your yard decor. If you paint your front door blue then use that same color for your planters or other small decorative elements like cushions and pillows on front porch furniture. This will create a cohesive look that has a strong stylistic impact. Another way to add color is through flowers. A timeless and gorgeous look is a home with flower-filled window boxes. Try this look at your own home to provide a boost of color and eye-catching appeal.
