When it comes to decorating and renovating around the house, the exterior often takes a back seat. This makes sense considering how much time you spend indoors, but there are plenty of reasons to invest time in improving your home’s curb appeal.
From increasing the value of the property to giving it a fresh new appearance, improving your home’s curb appeal is always worthwhile, and it can be done surprisingly quickly too! Not convinced? Then check out the four ways you can quickly improve your home’s curb appeal:
Remove all eyesores
It’s easy for junk to accumulate outside of your home, whether it’s garden furniture, an unused vehicle, dead plants, or the kid’s toys. One of the quickest and simplest ways to give your home a quick face lift is to just remove all the clutter and useless junk littering your front yard.
Should there be a lot of stuff, consider hosting a yard sale, recycling some old things, and/or storing it somewhere out of view, such as a garage or self-storage unit.
Give your lawn some love
If you have a lawn in your front yard then make sure to give it some proper love and attention – a luscious lawn makes a world of a difference for your home’s curb appeal!
This can be a case of simply mowing it with more regularity, adding some fertilizer, tidying around the edges, and removing weeds, all of which should help to improve your lawn. More maintenance may be required for drought-prone regions, but there are certainly ways to keep a healthy lawn in most climates!
Another option is to get some new turf and laying it down. It may take a little longer to settle, but the improvement over an old drab lawn makes it well worth it.
Revamp the front door
The front door is typically the focal point of any curb appeal, so you may want to give it a revamp or even a complete replacement, depending on what your budget and preferences are. Even just washing the door and giving it a fresh coat of paint is a great way to improve it’s aesthetic.
You could also consider adding some new hardware to your door. For instance, a kick plate at the base is good for hiding wear and tear at the bottom, while a new doorknob can completely revamp a door with minimal effort.
Update your driveway
A driveway is another key focal point of a home’s curb appeal so why not try updating it? For instance, an automatic driveway gate will not only significantly improve the curb appeal but also offer a host of other advantages.
From improving home security to adding an impressive amount of value to your property, updating your driveway to include an automatic gate system is a great idea – and it doesn’t take long to install either!
