Have you ever driven by a home that just takes your breath away? From the brick the house is made of, to the color of the front door, to the landscaping in front of the porch. It all just seemed to mesh so flawlessly right? Such is the power of curb appeal.

Curb appeal is that outward appearance that is often the first impression people have of your home. It’s is especially important if your trying to sell your home, but don’t underestimate its value even if your not. Spring is the best time to give your home a little update both inside and out so below we will look at three easy ways to give your home a little extra flair!


  • Dress Up The Front Door



Make your front door pop!


Your home’s main entry way is the focal point of its curb appeal. Make a statement by giving your front door a blast of color with a fresh coat of paint. The color you choose should really pop, but should also reflect the inside of your home as well. Don’t be a afraid to add a little extra to your front door too. Adding a wreath is a great way to call out your front door even more! Plus it’s a good way to showcase your personality and creativity for all your neighbors!



  • Utilize Outdoor Lighting



Outdoor lighting can make all the difference!


Much like photography, lighting can make all difference. Landscape lighting can make a big impact with your home’s curb appeal but can also provide safety and security. Light fixtures as accent lighting for your home or trees can really make them stand out during the night. They’re also perfect for illuminating walkways around your home. If you can’t install a wired set up, solar lighting is a great alternative!



  • Flower Power



Notice how the flowers draw your attention to the porch.


The easiest way to give your home some fresh curb appeal is to change the landscaping. Nothing catches the eye like well done landscaping with eye popping, colorful flowers. But you don’t have to have a professional landscaping job to have the same effect. Picking flowers that are bright and contrast your home’s color and placing them in the right place can get the same effect for much less!
