Your home is your sanctuary, so you want it to be inviting when you arrive from work after a hard day. While the home’s interior is what makes you comfortable, the exterior of your home is where you can show off your property. For most homeowners, boosting curb appeal is always on your mind. How do you make the exterior of your home more appealing? Below are three ideas to easily boost the curb appeal of your home, adding value as well as style.
Changing out the front door and windows of your home can affect the exterior appearance of your home. With both options, you have a cost-effective way to upgrade without breaking the bank. Look for energy-efficient products to maximize your savings. Changing the front door can have a huge impact on the home. A new door can be added with a touch of glass or other intricate details to help your home stand out. Choose a bright color to see the exterior of your home shine. As far as windows are concerned, they have a huge impact when older windows are replaced with new options. Be sure to upgrade the casings at the same time. The home will appear fresh and new, plus add value!
The physical exterior of your home should also be considered when upgrading curb appeal. If you have old siding, consider updating to a newer style with better quality siding. Today’s siding comes in a variety of colors and textures, at a cost-efficient price point. Siding can be added to your home, not only to update the curb appeal but also provide an added boost energy efficiency for the home.
Paint is also something to consider. If you have a natural brick or stucco exterior, paint can be used to update the look. Go for a wow factor with this surface type by trying a unique painting technique. A whitewash or smear technique with paint on brick can completely transform the look of your home.
The front entrance of your home is a place where guests are greeted and are the welcoming space of your home. This area can be updated in a variety of ways. Look at your front entrance. Are the steps crumbling or the front porch in need of paint? Are your doors old and worn and light fixtures rusty? With little touches, you can update this portion of your home and create a lovely look that will appeal to visitors visually, showing off the architecture and character of your home! Completely change the look of your front entrance by adding a new door with windows on the side, letting light inside the home and creating a grandiose front entry space.
These are just three options that can be used to update the curb appeal of your home. If you are stuck as to what you can do to make such changes, consider consulting with ACR LTD. Working with experts in home design, you can create curb appeal that truly makes your house shine.
Hi Curtis – Thank you for checking in on me prior to the warranty expiring. I’m sorry it took me so long to reply, but I was trying to find anything that needed attention. No matter how hard, or how critical I looked, I just couldn’t find anything. Greg just did too good of a job (and I sincerely appreciate it). Please pass my many thanks to him for a job well done. Thanks to ACR for a great job. I am really enjoying my great kitchen (and bathroom renovation from a few years earlier!)
