Curb appeal isn't only reserved for those selling their home. By sprucing up the exterior of your home, you'll be creating a welcoming feeling each time you come home.
- Dress up the front door. Scrub down the door, the knobs and any light fixtures. Create a focal point of your home by giving your door a fresh coat of paint. Add a wreath or decorative hanging that suits your style.
- Create some symmetry. Symmetry is pleasing to the eye and is the easiest to arrange. Flank your front door with matching lanterns, urns, or other front door accents. This will create a welcoming entryway for you and your guests.
- Install night lights. Landscape lights can provide an instant boost to your curb appeal, while also providing safety and security. Think about adding accent lighting to your walkways or trees. Solar lanterns are also a popular choice to provide lighting without wiring, but be aware their light levels are not as bright as wired fixtures.
- Add a splash of color. Container gardens filled with colorful blooms and interesting plants add to the welcoming feel for your home quickly and affordably. You can purchase ready made containers from your garden center or even some grocery stores. Or, you can DIY on your own with your favorite plants.
