Happy New Year, everyone! One of the ways you can hit your home improvement goals as 2021 unfolds is to think about every aspect of your home. Maybe the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, mudroom, and dining room are all looking great. But what about the exterior of your home? Even if you aren’t looking to sell your home and move on, you owe it to yourself to have a beautiful home, inside and out. So now let’s sit down together and discuss ways to improve your home’s curb appeal!
Rejuvenate Your Greenery
So one good way to start is by assessing the condition of your home’s landscape. In other words, take steps to rejuvenate your greenery. Even if the flowers won’t bloom until warm spring weather returns, now is a smart time to get started. Planters and window boxes can replace a full-on garden, if only for a little while. Plants can also be used to make windows and doors look nicer, and you can substitute hanging planters for standing ones.
Pay Attention to Your Lawn
The next piece of advice we can give is this: pay more attention to your home’s lawn. That is one of the easiest ways to boost your overall curb appeal. You probably did this a lot last year – mowing the lawn, raking up fallen leaves, and pulling up any weeds that you found. Well, even though winter is still ongoing, you’re going to need to put together a plan of attack before spring returns. Giving your lawn enough water – but not too much – is also the secret to a successful lawn.
Repaint Your Front Door
Is it time to refresh the front entryway into your home? Let’s suppose your front door needs some TLC. Beginners don’t need to worry, either; this task is surprisingly easy. Experiment with different swatches of color before making a hasty decision that you might end up regretting later.
Light Up the Doorway
In that same vein, do what you can to light up the doorway. This illumination is invaluable for your front stoop – whether it is a covered portico or a short flight of stairs leading up to a concrete landing. Porch string lights and solar-powered lanterns can also make it easier to see the walkway under your feet.
Rethink the Value of Symmetry
Symmetry is pleasing to the eye. So, with that in mind, rethink how symmetrical your home’s exterior is right now. It might clue you in to how to improve your curb appeal! Wall lanterns or plants hung around your front door is a fantastic way to pull this off, but you can also play around with the garage doors as well.
