Improve Your Home's Curb Appeal

Looking for ways to enhance your home's curb appeal? Well, you've come to the right place! Today we're going to reveal some quick and easy DIY projects that can make a world of difference in a home's curb appeal.

Paint the Front Door

The front door is often the very first thing someone sees when approaching a home. Therefore, it plays an important role in the home's curb appeal and overall aesthetics. But it's not uncommon for front doors to fade over time, due in part to the prolonged exposure to sunlight. A simple solution, however, is to repaint the front door. Adding a fresh coat of paint to your front door will revitalize its appearance while giving it new life and vigor.

Remove Weeds and Overgrown Plants

You can also enhance your home's curb appeal by spending a little time and attention on lawn care. This includes removing weeds, trimming back overgrown branches, and removing overgrowth or otherwise unwanted plants. Best of all, you don't need any special "weed-killing" products to perform this maintenance. Just fill a spray bottle with vinegar and a spoonful of dish soap, and spray it over the weeds. This is a safe and effective weed killing solution that anyone can make.

Pressure Wash Your House

Over time, the outside of your home may accumulate mold, mildew and dirt. This is particularly true for homes built with wooden siding, as wood absorbs moisture while providing ideal breeding grounds for mold. Thankfully, you can clean it using a pressure washer. Start by setting the pressure washer to the lowest pressure, and gradually work your way from the top to the bottom. This can take years off your home, making it look brand new when you are finished. If you don't own a pressure washer, call around to the some of the home improvement stores in your area. Many of these stores rent pressure washers, which can save you big bucks if you only need to use it once or twice.

Add Furniture

Even if you rarely use your front porch, you should consider adding furniture to it. Aside from the functional benefits it offers, furniture enhances the curb appeal of homes. You can add color, style and vibrancy to your home's curb appeal by using the right furniture.

These are just a few quick and easy ways to enhance your home's curb appeal.
