Curb Appeal Ideas That Make Your Home Stand Out

Whether you are putting your home on the market or just want to liven it up, here are a few curb appeal ideas to enhance your home’s exterior and make it stand out from the pack. Some of these you can do yourself, and others we can handle for you.

 

6 Curb Appeal Ideas to Refresh Your Home:

  1. Paint the Front Door

Simply painting the front door of your home can drastically change the exterior look and feel. This is a fantastic guide on how to choose the right color.  A brightly colored door will draw attention to your house and make it feel inviting. Our current favorites are apple green, cherry red, and canary yellow. There is also an app that helps you discover which color would look best on your door. Awesome, right? Download it here. If you need help with the painting, call us and book an appointment. Our expert painters have years of experience and will make your door look brand new.

  1. Update Your Hardware

If your door’s knocker, bell, and knobs are out of date or dingy, a little renewal may be in order. Clean and paint your knobs and hardware, or just replace them with something your style.

  1. Redo Your House Numbers

Replacing your house numbers with a new font can really up your curb appeal game. We love these sans-serif numbers you can find here. You can also find great decals or stencils at most hardware stores.

  1. Add Proper Porch Lighting

Good porch lighting is necessary not only for looks but safety and security as well. Path lights leading to your front door add a welcoming warmth to your home while providing a safe walkway. For a complete guide to porch light safety, click here.

  1. Add plants

Greenery will breathe new life into any space. Mix and match landscaping with pots and hanging plants. See how to mix and match at House and Home, and make these hanging plants from A Beautiful Mess.

 6. Paint the Exterior

Have professional painters renew your siding and trim for a brand new look. A new coat of paint can also double as a protective finish. Contact us for your free exterior painting estimate. Our expert painters can update your porch, siding, trim, deck, garage, and more!

Our Favorite Painting Tips for Sellers

Boost Your Curb Appeal

You know first impressions are everything. If you want to sell your home in a short amount of time and with minimum hassle, it’s critical that the first impression is the best impression.

  • Get your exterior pressured washed to refresh siding, patios, decks, and porches.  A clean wash will remove dirt, mold, and any stains.
  • Paint a fresh coat of exterior paint in a modern color. A nicely painted home on the outside is a huge selling point and may even draw people in that were not planning on buying. When choosing a color for the outside, keep in mind the rest of the neighborhood. If all the houses on the street are beige and tan, don’t paint your house bright green.
  • Make your door pop. Choose a bold and stylish color to make your home’s entrance inviting and stand out.  For a few examples and inspiration, take a look at these doors on Houzz.com. Who doesn’t love a fun door?
  • Repair issues on the outside including broken front steps, cracked sidewalks, wood rot, etc.

Refresh the Interior

Interior paint is so necessary to make the sale. Every realtor will advise you to paint, at least in the front and main rooms.

  • Pick a Neutral color. Think bright, light, and stylish. Beige is very popular, renters white is a good clean tone, but gray is also a fantastic and trendy choice. Check out our blog on how to pick the right gray. A neutral tone lends to a clean slate for those walking through your home. Buyers are turned off by bad paint jobs, bright colors, or anything too creative that may clash with their style.
  • Don’t ignore the kitchen and bathroom. You will never regret painting those cabinets and walls. A dark color will make those rooms feel small and crowded, which is also a turn off for buyers. Freshen up the area in something bright and inviting such as a light blue for the bathroom or a bright white or light yellow for the kitchen.
