25 Mar 3 Ways to Enhance your Curb Appeal
We love a good first impression and when it comes to your homes, that first glance coming up the curb is your moment to shine! Whether its to impress the in-laws or entice potential buyers, working on improving your curb appeal can reap many benefits in the long run. Here’s a quick rundown of ways we think you can instantly give the exterior of your house a quick makeover.
Add a pop of color:
A front porch must be welcoming and warm, and the easiest way to do this by adding planters to the front of your house. Whether you want to grow plants in it year-round or use it as a container to create different seasonal arrangements, planters are a great way to elevate your porch’s design appeal.
If you’re working with a smaller space and displaying multiple planters is out of the question, then consider investing in window boxes. A window box in a contrasting color is a smart way of adding a splash of color to your outdoors, and it doesn’t take up much space.
Install a Mail Post:
A well-designed mail post is a classic, timeless addition to your front lawn. While we’re not writing each other a lot of letters anymore, residents across North America still receive a sizeable amount of mail every single year. A mail post is not just an aesthetic addition, but it is also uber functional as it keeps your letters and small packages safe and dry. At Mayne, we believe that there is a mail post out there for every single person – whether you want one with a simple newspaper holder or have a green thumb and want the option of growing a plant on top of your mail post, there is something for everyone!
Brighten up your driveway:
The beauty of a lamp post lies in its simplicity.
Whether you live in the city or out in the country, having a durable, beautiful lamp post to literally guide the way, is a must-have. Landscape lighting has also been known to be one of the top features that potential buyers look at when closing on a new home. The combination of feeling welcome, while having a driveway that is safe and well-lit, makes outdoor lighting essential to increasing your property value.
It really is that easy. Gone are the days where adding curb appeal to your home meant having to completely re-structure your front yard. These simple but effective updates mentioned in this article go a long way in refreshing your exterior. Now, all that’s left is to sit back and watch everyone walk by and admire your beautiful home.
