Is your home looking a little… dull? Often, we focus on spring cleaning our rooms, but the outside needs some TLC, too. Improving your home’s exterior adds more than curb appeal - it can instantly add resale value to your home. Whether you’re preparing to sell or you simply want an updated look, here are five simple things you can do to boost your home’s curb appeal.

Freshen up your Front Door

A new coat of paint is an inexpensive way to improve your home’s look. Ditch the traditional white or cream and choose a complementary shade that makes your home’s facade really pop. Red doors are a popular choice, but soothing blues and sunny yellow shades are growing in popularity.

Upgrade Your Driveway

If your driveway is cracked and dull, consider an upgrade. Replace tired concrete or asphalt with paving stones. Today’s stones are affordable, durable, and come in a variety of materials and sizes. And they add more than curb appeal - pavers can last longer than concrete and are easier to repair. Not sure which paving stone is best for your home? Start here.

Clean out the Flower Beds

Freshly manicured flower beds add instant curb appeal! Start by cleaning out weeds and dead plants. Next, add as much mulch as needed, and then plant hearty perennials that can serve as year-round anchor plants. Finally, add pops of color with easy-to-plant annuals. Plan to do a color change at least twice a year - once in the spring and again in early fall.

Change Out the Curb

This upgrade takes curb appeal literally. Many homeowners are swapping concrete for customized curbing that complements their home’s exterior. Decorative curbing is an upgrade from standard edging. It can be used to frame flower beds, enhance driveways, or draw attention to a special area in your front yard. These unique designs are built on site, are fully customizable, and require minimal maintenance.

Let the Light Shine

Finish your exterior upgrade with new lighting. For a quick fix, clean up your current lights and replace any burned out or dull bulbs. Or, take things up a notch by installing new lights. Don’t forget to add solar panels or special lighting to make those new flower beds stand out!

When you’re ready to freshen up your home’s curb appeal, we can help. Our experienced professionals can help you design customized curbing, select new pavers, or pick out the perfect gazebo for your yard.
