Nothing says “Come on in!” quite like a clean, updated home exterior. With these three easy details and personal touches, guests will be begging for you to let them in! Maybe you’ll even welcome the thought of holding the annual neighborhood barbecue.
There’s no bigger distraction from a beautiful home than an unkempt yard. Basic yard maintenance (i.e. regularly mowing the lawn, mulching natural areas, etc.) can do wonders for your curb appeal. But why stop there? Potted plants and hanging planters filled with topiaries and bright, seasonal flowers will immediately give your home a fresh vibe.
A unique front door is by far the easiest way to incorporate some of your personal style into the exterior of your home. A simple paint job can make all the difference. Colors such as bright yellows, deep reds, and chartreuse greens have been very popular this season, and are sure to add cheerfulness to any home. Want to make a statement, but aren’t into color? For the neutral lovers out there, a set of French doors or a Dutch-style door can be just as bold.
Eye-Catching Accessories and Details
Go the extra mile to personalize your entry by incorporating a few small but significant details. An easy way to do this is by placing a wreath on your front door. This shows how much you care about your home and the guests that enter it. Wreaths are also cost-effective ways to decorate for every holiday, as the decorations can be easily transformed for any season. Finding an innovative way to display your house number will also set yours apart from the other homes on the street. You can paint the numbers on planters, hang them vertically, or have them hand painted in a brush script onto your mailbox.
At the end of the day, there is no home’s curb appeal that can’t be fixed with a few coats of paint and a plant or two. However, the biggest impact is always made by the smallest details. These few updates are sure to make your home stand out!
