Curb appeal is one of the most important aspects of your home. It is the first impression people receive of your home. So why not make the most of your curb appeal with some updates? Let’s take a look at some easy ways you can update your curb appeal this summer.
Freshen Up with Plants and Flowers
Plants and bright flowers will work to create a welcoming atmosphere for your home. Using your favorite annual or perennial plants will bring a touch of color to your home. Planting flowers in decorative pots or boxes around your entryway will make your home much more inviting than having a bare doorstep. Planting flowers or bushes in front of your home will help to cover any unsightly areas like crawl spaces under your porch and highlighting your home’s exterior.
A few simple accessories can be used to brighten up your porch. A set of chairs and a low table will allow guests to linger outside of your home as well as invite them in. Updating your doormat and other accessories will not only show off your home’s personality but will allow guests to feel at home. Do guests have trouble finding your home? Update your house numbers with a fresh, shiny new set. A new set of numbers can help get your home’s hardware off to a good start.
The Front Door
The front door should be the exterior focal point to your home. This portal allows guests to feel welcome to your home while also keeping unwanted visitors out. If your door appears worn, it could indicate to visitors what they will find inside. Increase your curb appeal by sanding away scratches and giving your front door a fresh coat of paint will help bright up your home and draw your visitor’s eye to your home. Updating the door hardware like the door knob and knockers will also help your entry door stand out from the rest of your home.
Most mailboxes have been around for years in all kinds of conditions. After enduring heavy rain and gusty winds, your mailbox has probably seen better days. So why not retire your old mailbox with something new? A new mailbox from WalterWorks Hardware will not only protect your mail but also update your curb appeal.
