Boost Your Curb Appeal

May 14, 2020 | Comments Off on Boost Your Curb Appeal

When it comes to home improvement projects, the sky is the limit. It’s easy to get lost in the abundance of incredible projects you see online that can increase your home’s curb appeal. However, it’s important to remember that not every home has to be featured on the cover of a magazine to be comfortable and desirable. If you want to start boosting your home’s curb appeal, work from the outside in. Here are some great ways to make your house stand out from all the others on your block.

Raise the Bar in Your Backyard

The backyard of your home is where your friends and family come to gather, so creating an incredible space worthy of everyone’s awe is a valuable endeavor. No matter the size of your yard, it’s important to use the space wisely and use landscaping to maximize the ambiance. If you have limited space, you can add elevated decks to make the most of every square inch. Multi-level decks are an impressive and functional solution for uneven ground or cramped yards. Decorate your deck or patio with string lights, solar-powered lanterns, or efficient LEDs to add an element of safety and coziness. Use colorful plants and hedges to create a sense of lushness and to attract beautiful butterflies and birds to your outdoor oasis.

Make Your Front Yard Stand Out

You can make your home pop by completing improvement projects in your front yard. Start with a well-manicured lawn. Even if you can’t replace your grass with fresh sod, you can make a big impact simply by edging and keeping your lawn trimmed. If you have the available space, add in blooming flower gardens. If you don’t have space for full front yard gardens, create an abundant container garden. Blooms bursting with color and attractive scents create an inviting aura. If you have the time and budget, add a front fence or hedges and use flowering plants or vines to make a statement. For major impact, add stone or brick pathways and illuminate them with landscape lighting.

Making your house into an inviting and attractive home can be a fun and engaging project. Use these tips to make your project stand out and impress your neighbors, friends, and family. If you are in the market to sell your home, these projects are sure to attract buyers and make them fall in love with their future home.
