When planning your house’s exterior, you should keep in mind that it is the first thing that people especially your neighbors will see. First impression says a lot and is very important except for people who are close to you and able to see the interior as well. It may be the only thing they will be able to see thus it is important to create quite an impression. The curb appeal of your property can either help improve or degrade the value of your neighborhood. Here are some of the things you can do in order to add some wow factor in the exterior of your home.
- Do not be afraid to play with colors. The entrance to your home is your front door thus it should be able to make a huge statement. If you decided to give your house a face life, painting the door using a contrasting color from the exterior of your house can give it an instant wow factor. You can also brighten your property with the use of flowers which is not only effective but also affordable. You can install window boxes where colorful flowers can spill out or you can plan them all over the foundation of your house. If you are not excited with the idea of flowering plants, you can add mulch that is darker in color to the flowerbeds so the shrubbery will be more noticeable.
- You may not be paying attention to your house number but other people do. You can try placing it in a way that is different and try buying one that is not made of plastic so as not to be generic.
- Beautify your lawn. A well-loved house is one wherein the grass is regularly cut, the edging seen on the sidewalk is clean and the shrubbery and flowers are not overcome by weeds. It conveys a message that the house is not only clean but it is well taken care of. If you are listing your house on the market, buyers will assume that a clean exterior also means that the interior is given the same attention.
