Five Ways to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal
No matter how style and design conscious you are, we all take pride in our home. The home is a place to unwind and relax after a day of work or school, to spend time with our loved ones and is, arguably, where we feel most safe and attached to. So, when we walk up to our front door, we should look at our home with a mixture of love and respect, and this can certainly be achieved if the front of our house looks tidy, uniform and characterful.
With this in mind, and if you find that the front of your home needs some TLC, we have put together five ways you can boost your home’s curb appeal making all of your neighbours envious.
A vibrantly painted door
It is underestimated how much a bright and beautifully coloured door can simply transform your home’s exterior. From classic red and cornflower blue to cheery yellows and blush pinks, certain colour shades can truly bring a smile to your face, along with your family, your guests and the postman! Plus, there is nothing wrong with adding a pop of colour to the street!
If you are looking for a quintessential fairytale appearance for your home, growing stunning climbing flowers will do the trick. Canopies of wisteria, twisting roses and walls of jasmine will certainly make the exterior of your home simply breathtaking and enchanting in the spring and summer months. Complementing a freshly painted exterior, they will add plenty of fragrance when you walk up to the front of your home.
Landscaped front garden
Don’t just add flowers to the walls of the front of your home, take pride in the green areas. From potted olive trees to cream gravelled driveways, there are plenty of ways you can make the front of your home look immaculate. Why not create a theme? You could create a garden that is inspired by Japanese Zen Gardens or create a tropical Mediterranean oasis.
A fresh lick of paint
The exterior of your home can accumulate plenty of grime and pollution over the years, leading to a mixture of murky hues tainting the outside wall’s paint. Give your home a revamp by freshly painting it so it can have a new lease of life. You could go for classic cream or magnolia hues, or perhaps you could venture into a bolder colour like turquoise blue, soft grey or delicate pastel pink for a look that echoes Balamory.
Though garage doors do stand the test of time, they can look worn down after a few years. Upgrade the safety of your home, and the curb appeal, by investing in a new garage door. There is a range of styles to choose from, including wooden colonial styles and metal up and over doors. Or, why not get an electric one? So if its a rainy day, you won’t need to clamber out of your car to open your garage.
