5 Ways to Reclaim Your Curb Appeal
We all know that house in the neighborhood that sits flawlessly with its well-manicured lawn and perfect color scheme, making all the other houses seem just a little bit… dull. You drive past it on your way home, too tired to think about getting out there to sweep the porch or touch up those places where the paint has chipped. We get it – it can feel like a lost cause when all the work piles up.
[But, what if summer 2017 is the perfect opportunity for recapturing the charm of your home?]
Before you toss a FOR SALE sign in the yard, thinking that the aesthetic of your exterior is a lost cause, we’ve compiled a list of 5 ways to reclaim the curb appeal of your home.
1. Splash of New Color
The right color can make all the difference when it comes to your curb appeal. Maybe your home is due for an update or you just aren’t pleased with the statement it’s making, we know that a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home can make all the curb appeal difference you’re looking for.
2.Front Door Color Pop
From soft hues of blue to statement reds, adding a color pop to your front door can make your home feel like new.
Adding natural wood tones to your facade, such as wooden porch beams or staining shutters or porch floors, can add a luxurious and rustic element that makes for a more dimensional look to your home.
Gone are the days when your trim has to be stark white! Whether you go for the bold darker trim or just want to treat the scratches and peeling paint, fresh trim makes the exterior of the home stand out.
5.Freshen Up With a Wash Down
Last, and often times totally underrated, is the easiest and best way to give your home a yearly touch of TLC. If we really think about it, the exterior of a home gets the brunt of all kinds of weather conditions. Dust, pollen, mildew and dirt is quick to land, well, EVERYWHERE on your home. By cleaning off the grime you’re not only getting back that fresh look, but you’re also removing the dirt build up that can speed up the deterioration of your house’s exterior coatings.
Bonus: [Mailbox Color]
In the grand scheme of things, your mailbox may seem minor, but a fresh pop of color to match your front door or trim can make a more flattering first impression.
