Features to Maximize Your Custom Home’s Curb Appeal
Curb appeal is nice to have. It increases property value, makes homes sell faster, and stirs the hearts of everyone who walks by. Great curb appeal isn’t hard to achieve either. In this article we’re going to give you a few tips to improve your home’s curb appeal.
Make sure your windows are clean, inside and out. Grimy windows look terrible. If you can see into the windows from the outside, pretty window coverings look great, too.
Your front door should be clean and attractive. A contrasting colour is nice. Historically, doors are often red to signify a fire in the hearth.
Shrubbery or potted plants should frame the front door and help the eye to find the front door. Outdoor shrubs in the front yard should be trimmed and flowers beds should be weed free.
A path from the driveway or sidewalk or street should lead to the front door. This makes a home look welcoming to guests. The path should be clean and free of debris or snow and ice.
If you have a front yard, or grass, it should be well maintained and the grass cut. Whatever you have out front should appear neat.
When you are planning a new home or renovating the front of an older one with us, these are all things that we would take into consideration and help you to think about. However, anyone can implement these ideas to give a home better curb appeal. A clean and tidy yard, a path to the front door, and a framed entrance will make a big difference in how your home is viewed from the street.
