First impressions are important, so whether you’re trying to sell your home or you just want to make your home look its very best, don’t neglect the curb appeal. Here are some cheap, but effective ways to spruce up your home’s curb appeal:
Fresh paint, new colors
Are your exterior colors looking a bit drab, or does the paint simply need a fresh coat? A little bit of paint can go a long way, and whether you’re refreshing the coat of a current color or adjusting the palette completely, a paint job can be one of the most effective ways to improve curb appeal.
A thorough cleaning
Roll up your sleeves and make sure your home’s exterior is as spotless as can be. Use a pressure washer and/or a bucket of soapy water plus a scrub brush to give your home’s exterior a spic-and-span look.
The front door
Is your front door looking a bit dated? Aside from painting, as listed above, there are other ways to give your door a mini makeover without replacing it completely. Take a look at the light fixtures, doorbell, and even the doorknob—all inexpensive fixes that can give your home a more upgraded look.
Your front lawn
Extensive gardening might not be a viable option, but even just adding a fresh layer of mulch can give your yard a major improvement and for little cost. Planting even just one tree or a couple of smaller plants can also really help to improve your landscaping. And be sure to trim any overgrown shrubbery; a neat and groomed appearance can make your home appear much more inviting.
