What are some tips for improving the curb appeal of my home?

1. Update the Front Entrance: Consider painting your front door a bold color, installing new door handles and locks, adding a unique knocker, and/or updating the lighting fixtures.

2. Landscape: Keep your lawn and garden well-manicured, pull weeds, and adding colorful flowers and plants in pots along your walkway or entryway.

3. Clean and Paint: If your home’s exterior is looking a bit shabby, a good cleaning and fresh coat of paint can work wonders.

4. Upgrade the Exterior: Consider installing new shutters or blinds, adding window boxes and awnings, replacing gutters and downspouts, and/or adding a new railing or balustrade.

5. Boost Lighting: Landscape lighting, solar lighting, or hanging pendant porch lights will add character and boost your home’s curb appeal.

6. Add Outdoor Living: Consider adding a porch swing, some rockers, or a few Adirondack chairs to the front porch, or even a small table and chairs for intimate outdoor dining.

7. Add Outdoor decor: Use decorative outdoor accents such as statues, decorative posts, birdhouses, planters, and other outdoor decor to spruce up your home’s curb appeal.

8. Repair Driveway and Walkways: Cracks, potholes, and uneven slabs are unattractive, and pose a safety hazard. Repair or re-do your driveway and walkways for safety and curb appeal.
