Did you know that great curb appeal can increase your home’s perceived value by as much as 11 percent? Curb appeal is the key to getting qualified buyers in the front door and getting the most for your house. Even if you don’t have immediate plans to sell, curb appeal makes your home a more enjoyable place to live. Of course, we don’t all have a green thumb or the money to invest in a professional landscaping overhaul. Luckily, there’s a lot you can do to beautify your home’s exterior without spending a ton or risking major DIY mishaps.
These seven curb appeal projects are so simple, anyone can do them!
The most important thing any homeowner can do for curb appeal is keeping up with lawn and garden maintenance. It’s easier to keep your lawn, trees, shrubs, and flower beds healthy than it is to solve weed and disease issues once they happen; what’s more, all of these landscape elements will definitely boost your curb appeal. And if you’re selling your home in the off-season, consider adding some hardy shrubs like witch hazel and Japanese Pieris.
If lawn and garden maintenance is constantly falling to the bottom of your priority list, it may be easier to hire a landscape gardening service to provide maintenance. In addition to helping you plan out your ideal garden and get the ball rolling, a professional service will also water your plants and help you keep weeds under control.
A fresh coat of paint instantly makes any surface look better. If your front door is looking more drab than welcoming, repaint it! Even if you’re not an experienced painter, you can easily complete this project in a day. The hardest part is picking out the right paint color!
A cluttered front porch is never a good look, but a totally bare entryway can make your home look cold and neglected. Thankfully, it’s easy and affordable to spruce up this area. If you have a small front porch, add a new welcome mat, seasonal wreath, and potted plants flanking the front door. If you have more space to work with, like a wraparound porch, create an inviting sitting area with rocking chairs, benches, and hanging plants.
You probably don’t pay much attention to your house numbers, but this minor feature can seriously date your home. Add modern appeal with updated house numbers. Metal, wood, and black finishes are popular choices for contemporary homes.
