It may not look like it quite yet, but spring is well on its way! That means it’s just about time to get ready for spring-cleaning.
We all tend to focus on our indoor spaces when we do a thorough spring cleaning, but don’t forget the outside of your home this spring. Your house’s exterior probably some sprucing up after a winter of heavy snow, rain, and sand.
Whether you’re selling your home and want to add some value, or you just know you’ll feel so much better each time you come home to a clean exterior, adding some curb appeal to your house can help. Here are 5 easy ways for you to improve your home’s curb appeal this spring:
Dress Up Your Front Door
Something everyone notices as they walk up to your home is your front door. It’s the focal point of your home. Why not dress it up and have it stand out? You could simply repaint it a bright red or cool blue for an added pop of colour, or add some new hardware. Or, you could have a completely new door installed. Customize it by size, colour, material, windows, and features so it gives your home a modern update. This is always a quick and easy way to add a ton of extra curb appeal.
Add Some Flowers
Flowers aren’t for everyone, but they’re a beautiful way to help freshen up your home’s appearance and create a welcoming feel. Don’t worry; you don’t need to plant an entire flowerbed in your front yard. If you want a easy DIY project, simply go out and grab a couple of planters and fill them with your favourite bright flowers. Or you can buy some ready-made planters from your local garden centre. Just don’t forget to water them!
Get a Window Facelift
The difference that fresh windows and panes can make for a home usually catches homeowners off guard. It’s hard to imagine, but the results are always there. Fresh windows can revitalize your home and make it look and feel ten years younger again. And, as a bonus, you can enjoy them from inside and out, adding value to both aspects of your home!
Give Your Home a Bath
One of the easiest ways to instantly improve your curb appeal is by washing your house from top to bottom. Dirt and grime can really build up over the winter months, making your house look tired. Pull out the power washer to clean your home’s siding and sidewalks to remove months of dirt. Nobody can see through a window with dust and cobwebs on it, so take special care to wash your windows until they shine. This adds an instant sparkle to the outside of your home and the inside as well.
Trim Your Grass and Hedges
When you’re focused on curb appeal, it isn’t just your house’s appearance that matters. You need to consider your yard as well. An easy way to get your yard looking its best is to trim the plants in your yard. Most people know to keep their grass consistently cut in the spring and throughout the summer, but don’t forget about the other plants in your front yard. Take the time to go out and trim your hedges and trees. Overgrown bushes and trees can block your house; let the light shine in and on your home by keeping them trimmed.
