1 day Curb Appeal Projects
Replace old hardware with new complimentary hardware – For instance replace your house numbers, door locks, mailbox and lighting with new designs. Create symmetry by placing even lights or plants on either side of the door or walkway. The eye will always be drawn to misplaced or uneven objects, give your home the symmetry it needs. Install outdoor lights along the walkway or driveway – you can even purchase solar powered lights to be eco-friendly. Renew planter beds – cutting away the dead plants will help give more life to the plants you have left. Nothing screams uncared for than dead plants and yards lacking maintenance. Replace gutters and downpours – At least check to make sure your existing ones are still attached to the house.
There are many more projects that will take less than a day to complete and will really add that extra oomph your home needs.
3 day Curb Appeal Projects
These few projects will take more than a day to complete and may require some professional help, though they will be more than enjoyable in the end.
Renew paint, siding, and trim – Give your house a facelift with a new paint job. Dated and fading exterior paint may be holding your house back from rocking the appealing side. Look into paint colors that will accentuate your home. Choosing a color that is really loud may not be such a great idea either. Add shutters or accent trim – it’s the little details that really show you care. Dress up the driveway – a new drive way is worth a thousand words. Make the drive way the grand entrance with new concrete or stone. Even adding lighted columns at the bottom of the driveway can make your house a big deal on the block. Add a porch or portico – Creating more for the eye to look out is very beneficial. Not only will this added feature be something nice to look at, you and your family can benefit from it as well. Try adding a pergola to an existing porch or adding a portico to your front entry way. Hardscape and water features – The newest craze if showing off your water features in your front yard versus your back yard now.
Contact a remodeling and design company to give your front yard a hardscape and possibly a water feature that is top of town.
Last but not least – adding stone veneers or slate tiles to the exterior walls can really add the look of luxury and elegance for a low price.
