Extra Special Curb Appeal Ideas

Small gardenHomes with curb appeal draw in buyers and make them want to see what is inside. Here are some tips to make your curb appeal irresistible to them:

Lots of Mulch
During warmer months, mulch makes garden beds look pleasing. Heavy mulching looks even better.

Add Trim
Add more trim to windows and doors. Trim elevates something very basic and makes it special. Consider adding trim around your front door to make a grand entrance. Depending upon your home style, you may also want to add shutters to windows as a decorative element.

Add Color
During warmer months, be sure to have a splash of color in your year. Seasonal flowers will look wonderful. Think about adding a colorful bench or chair on the front porch.

Mailbox
Upscale your mailbox, house numbers or address plaque.

Camouflage an Eyesore
If you have a large electrical box, piping or wires, paint them the same color as your home and they will be less noticeable. Add a small fence around your air conditioner or garbage area.

Window Boxes
A window box filled with flowers can transform a so-so window into a showstopper.

Create a Walkway
A simple stone pathway adds character to your yard.

Update the Garage
It you have a plain garage door, consider purchasing a hardware kit to make your doors look like carriage-style garage doors.

Lighting
Landscape lighting sets an ambiance for your yard in the evening.
