How To Improve Your Home's Curb Appeal

 Whether you are moving home or simply creating a nicer living space, there are many benefits associated with enhancing your property’s curb appeal. 

For example, improved curb appeal can:

With that in mind, here are some simple ways in which you can begin to improve your home’s curb appeal - whether this is for your own enjoyment or to win over buyers! 

Out with the old.

Working with companies such as Refined Exteriors to replace old siding, roofing, and windows is a great first step when it comes to improving your home’s curb appeal. After all, while these exterior features are designed to be long-lasting, replacing them can make your property look brand-new. It will also help you to drive up the asking price for your property, as it means new buyers will not have to carry out extensive maintenance when moving in. 

Repaint doors and window frames. 

Chipped paint on exterior features, such as doors and window frames, may not seem like a major issue - but tiny details such as this will be picked up on by potential buyers, and it could sway their opinion of your property. Thankfully, this issue can quickly be reminded through a spot of DIY (and a paintbrush). When choosing a color for your door, try to choose one that is bright and welcoming and also matches the aesthetic of your street or neighborhood. 

Maintain your yard.

Working to maintain a healthy garden can also help improve your home’s curb appeal. In fact, “research has shown that a well-kept garden can add as much as 20% to the value of your property.” As such, you should work hard to keep both your front and back yard in excellent condition - which means it's time to put your gardening skills to the test. 

Fortunately, this does not necessarily need to be a time-consuming task. You simply have to keep your grass neat and plant a few colorful flowers here and there. If you don’t have the time to keep your garden in check, consider hiring a gardener to do this for you.

Install outdoor lighting.

Installing outdoor lighting at the front of your property is another excellent way to enhance your curb appeal. Firstly, this can be a great security measure as it can deter theft and other crimes - which could give new buyers peace of mind. However, it can also add some much-needed ambiance to your property while also making the space more accessible, especially if your street is not well-lit.

Power wash. 

Power or jet washing your decking, porch, or driveaway is a simple yet effective way to enhance your curb appeal. This is because these tools can remove worn-in dirt and grime that accumulates naturally in outdoor spaces. Jet washing can also restore your property to its former glory, especially if the paint has begun to look faded and dull.
