4 Summer Curb Appeal Ideas
Upgrading your home's curb appeal is a quick way to increase its value and make visitors feel welcome. There are dozens of ways you can improve your home's exterior, but it can get expensive. Here are four easy ways to elevate your home's curb appeal this summer without breaking the bank or hiring outside help.
Clear A Path
Make the entrance to your home obvious. An unclear pathway littered with overgrown greenery is both unattractive and confusing for visitors. Create a clear walkway by mowing the grass and neatly trimming any bushes. You can also line it with flowers and lights that add interest and serve as a clear indicator of where to go. If you don't have a walkway, put down steppingstones or other garden tiles to lead the way to your door.
See And Be Seen
Accentuate your windows. Add shutters to either side and paint them a color that complements the rest of the house. You can also add flower boxes to each window for fun flair. Add a few plants for a pop of color. Make sure to get both large and small plants, as well as ones that spill over the edges of the boxes. If you know people who are avid gardeners, invite them over for a small get-together and ask them to bring their favorite type of flower in a gift bag so you can add it to the window box.
Mark Your Territory
Make it easy for guests to find your house by coming up with an innovative way to display your address. Paint your house number on tin buckets and place at the end of your driveway or on the porch to make them readily visible. If you want to keep it simple, you can also paint them on your door or mailbox.
Add personal flair to your entrance. Show off your interests by creating fun displays to place near your front door. If your children are involved in sports, place their old baseball, soccer, or football gear outside in a fun arrangement. You can also find personalized yard decor that adds unique interest to your home's exterior.
