Where to Focus When Updating Your Home's Curb Appeal

Where to Focus When Updating Your Home’s Curb Appeal

 

Now that all the snow has melted, you are likely looking at your home’s outdoor appeal in new light. Updating the look of your home from the outside can be the single most important improvement you make, especially if you’re thinking of selling your home.

 

There are a number of improvements you can make to make your home look inviting. Here are a few ideas that are sure to make a big impact!

 

Decking

 

Adding a deck to your home can create the perfect environment for summer gathering. There are many options for the type of product to use for decking, from natural wood to composite decking. Composite decking generally lowers your maintenance cost and can look just as natural!

 

Already have a deck? Remember to keep it maintained by sanding and staining it every two to three years. A well-maintained deck can become the focal point of your yard and an extension of your living space.

 

Front Porch

 

Few things stir a feeling of nostalgia more than the thought of enjoying a glass of lemonade on your front porch while greeting neighbors as they pass. A porch is the first thing people see when they approach your home.

 

Be sure your porch fits in with your home’s architecture to increase its value and impact.

 

New Front Door

 

Nothing has a bigger impact on welcoming visitors than replacing your front door. Update the moldings around the door to really make a statement.

 

Not only does a new door add curb appeal, but it can also increase your home’s energy efficiency and save you 10 percent on energy bills.

 

Remember that making changes to your home’s outdoor appeal won’t just make living in your home more enjoyable but also will likely increase your home’s value to potential buyers.
