When it's time to improve the curb appeal of your house, you might not know where to start. When in doubt, go with what's trendy, as identified by lawn care start-up company LawnStarter.
Update the Front Door
Giving your front door a fresh coat of paint, especially in a bold color, is and inexpensive and effective way to draw the eye and make you entrance pop. Adding a shiny new door handle also helps make a good first impression.
Replace the Garage Door
A garage door on the front of the house can make a big impact on curb appeal. Go beyond choosing color or windows to make a statement and opt for a designer garage door, such as the increasingly popular carriage house door.
Furnish the porch
Make the front of the house look inviting by including furniture on the porch. Adding an outdoor sitting area, such as a bistro table and chairs or a porch swing with a side table, is a great way to enhance curb appeal.
Add outdoor Lighting
Exterior lighting adds an elegant touch to your home's appearance at night, especially with stylish fixtures on the porch, along walkways and in the landscaping. Lighting also adds to the security of your house, an important factor for potential buyers.
