August is National Curb Appeal Month and the LCT Team has some great tips on how to make your home catch the eyes of your neighbors and potential home buyers.
Curb Appeal DIY Projects
There are so many things you can do to up the curb appeal of your home. Some of those things can be done yourself! Here are a few easy do-it-yourself projects to make your home the envy of the block.
Painting your trim, shutters and front door can make a big difference. Using a bold color on the front door that match the other colors on your house can make your house stand out from the rest on your block.
Another way to up your curb appeal is as simple as upgrading your mailbox. Replacing your old mailbox with one that matches the rest of the space can bring the whole look of your home together. Adding some flowers next to your mailbox can give your home a little extra curb appeal, too.
Installing new house numbers is a great way to spruce up your house. Make sure the numbers match with the finish of the other fixtures on the exterior of the house.
Solar outdoor lighting along your sidewalk, driveway or next to your front door can provide accent lighting as well as safety and security to your home.
Landscaping – Curb Appeal
Adding some landscaping to the front of your home is one of the most common and classic ways to add curb appeal.
Planting a tree or two, depending on your space, can frame your house and give it a more welcoming feeling.
Installing flower boxes on your windows or front porch railings can make your home feel fresh and fun. Flowers can add color and make your home feel inviting. If your don’t have space for flower boxes, container gardens from your local garden center can quickly bring some curb appeal to your home.
