Curb appeal is a huge part of selling your home and also it can have an effect on the way people view your house when they come to visit you. The first thing that anyone will see when they approach your home is the outside, and today we are going to talk about how to create an amazing front of the house.
Clean up the drive away
First things first, get yourself a pressure washer or borrow one from your family or friends and take time to clean the whole driveway Stone by stone. After years of it being natural, you will likely be surprised at the bright color which lingers underneath and this can make the front of your house immediately look so much better than it did before.
Kill the weeds
Weeds are just a pest for any homeowner and gardener, and a lot of the time these pesky plants manage to find their way into our front gardens and even in between the paving stones. To clear these out for good there are several things you can do. You can either use the traditional method of pulling out the roots by hand, you can pour boiling water over the plants to kill them before pulling them out, or you can use weed killer. There are different ways to get rid of weeds depending on their strength and roots, so don’t be afraid to try out a few different ideas until you find one which works.
Update your siding
It’s not just the front garden and the door area which you can change to make the home look brand new, you can also change and update the siding to make it feel fresh and modern. The siding of the house will take up a lot of room and the materials and colors you pick for the building can have a massive impact on the overall look and feel of your home.
Get a new front door
If you want to do something super simple to change the way the front of your house appears to the world, something you can definitely think about trying is buying a new front door. It can be awesome to get a bright colored front door installed on the house because it takes a drab and boring home and makes it look unique and full of character. Swap out the white or wood for a color such as red, blue or yellow.
Get green fingered
Most of us have some sort of front garden to contend with all year long, and you can certainly make a good impact on the home by getting a bit green-fingered and tidying it up. Front gardens always work amazingly with large shrubs and hardy plants such as lilac and hydrangea and these plants won’t require too much maintenance either. You can also think about complimenting your new door with a hanging basket full of seasonal flowers. All of this will make the home feel special and it will give a wonderful first impression for everyone.
