There’s a difference between being the biggest house on the block and being the one that appeals to homeowners. Whether you’re looking to sell your house tomorrow or years from now, boosting your curb appeal has many obvious benefits. But where do you start?


We’ve got you covered with these five tips:

boost curb appeal


Paint the door - Start where the eye gets drawn the most: your front door. A fresh coat of paint that compliments your home’s siding can make a strong impact on your house from first sight! Whether it be a bold blue or a neutral grey.


Powerwash - This simple step can wash away the dirt that masks the natural beauty of your home. Sometimes it’s the easy and cost-effective methods that can boost your curb appeal in a matter of minutes!


Light it up - Lighting means everything when it comes to home decor. When you have the right kind of lighting in all the right places, you accentuate what you want to stand out and conceal what you don’t. For instance, if your house is a luxurious three story design, then choosing lighting angled upwards to the top of your home can say, “Look at all this height!” If you have a luscious garden, then adding landscape lighting can help as well.


Replace gutters - When function meets aesthetics, one thing that comes to mind is your  gutter system. Having cracked gutters and crooked downspouts is bad for many reasons. So replace the old with the new and choose one that conveys high quality and pretty curb appeal.


Awnings - Another functional and beautiful addition to the home is a customized awning. Installing a custom awning in your backyard shows you know the benefits of protecting your home from heating up too quickly or keeping your deck safe from UV rays. Not to mention, it shows you’re ready for an outdoor gathering rain or shine!
