Make your home stand out with a curb appeal boost.

Increasing the curb appeal of your home is one of the hottest trends of summer. Curb appeal refers to making upgrades or improvements to the front, or “curb” facing area of a home, in order to increase its perceived value. Curb appeal improvements can include everything from adding lawn ornaments to completely overhauling your front windows. Here are some quick, on-budget curb-appeal boosters that you can do while considering larger upgrades.

Paint the Front Door

Red, yellow, neon-green, what’s your favourite bright colour? People are painting their front doors every colour of the rainbow in order to make their home stand out. This is an easy, cost-efficient upgrade that can have big results.

Clean up that Yard

Are out of control shrubs and hedges making your front lawn look like a labyrinth? A little bit of trimming and yard clean-up can drastically improve the appearance of your home. You may also consider hiring professional landscapers to really make your home’s façade shine.

Just Hang it 

It could be a festive wreath, a strand of flowers or a vintage birdcage brimming with greenery. Decorative ornaments may seem tripe, but they can be the icing on your curb appeal cake. Follow these three tips, and you will be well on your way to boosting your home’s curb appeal.
