Is the exterior of your home in need of some TLC? The outside of your home is like the cover of a book, and you want it to feel representative of the beautiful home inside.
You could quickly boost your home's curb appeal in just one weekend through a few at-home projects. Below we’ve put together some ideas to help with your home’s curb appeal.
Paint Your Door
Painting your front door is a cost-effective way to make your home pop. It typically costs less than $75 to paint your front door, and bold, fun color makes your home stand out.
Before committing to a color, pick up some paint swatches and some sample colors. Paint small samples or tape the swatch to your door to help you determine which color will be right for your home.
Add Some Greenery
Adding potted plants to your front porch is a quick way to brighten your home. Consider something simple, like mums or lavender. Both are easy to care for and are good for the bees.
For something a little more elevated, install planter boxes under your windows. The added boxes add visual interest and are a classic look on any home.
You don’t need to go all out with landscaping, but there are at-home projects that are relatively cost-effective. Add metal edging throughout your yard to create landscape barriers for drought-resistance plants. Use mulch to help save on water, and it helps add dimension to your front yard.
Do your best to take good care of your lawn. A green lawn goes a long way in improving curb appeal and making your home look beautiful.
Clean and Pressure Wash
Rent a pressure washer to give the outside of your home a vigorous cleaning. You can use the pressure washer on many surfaces – including outdoor furniture!
Wash your walkways, fences, gutters, driveway, and anywhere that looks like it needs an intense cleaning. You may need to use a degreaser on your driveway to remove set-in stains.
When using a pressure washer, be sure to use the weakest setting first and work your way to the strongest one. This helps avoid any damage to surfaces.
Replace Door Hardware
Replace existing door hardware for a quick curb appeal upgrade. If you’ve painted your door, choose a finish that contrasts with the door for added visual interest. Our luxury hardware comes in many different finishes, and we are sure to have a finish that perfectly matches any door color.
Our stunning one-piece handlesets make a bold impression on homes. They come in many different styles, from contemporary to traditional. Add luxury to your front door with our Carre One-piece Handleset or Arc One-piece Handleset.
If a one-piece handleset isn’t your preference, our entry sets are just as grand and available in any of our ten style collections and a variety of back plate size options. As an example, the Fifth Avenue Entry Set has four different back plate size options, Tall Plate, Long Plate, Short Plate, and Square Rosette, and makes a stunning addition to any front door.
