How to Upgrade Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Posted by: Storganization Staff Tags: DIY, How TO, Entryway

Whether you’re looking to sell your house or just want to make some updates before the holiday season, there are many ways to enhance your home’s curb appeal without a complete renovation. We’ve put together our favorite ideas to help your home look its best this year.

 

Landscaping  

Sprucing up your landscaping is guaranteed to give your home a new style. Consider plants that can survive all year long, or establish a rotation system for seasonal favorites, like colorful mums and hydrangeas in the fall, and tulips and hyacinths in the spring.

Roof upgrades

Although most roofs last about 20 years, this part of the house may need your attention. According to Owens Corning, if you have shingles that are curled at the edges, cracked, or missing granules, you should consider some preventive maintenance to keep your roof functional and beautiful.

Quick cosmetic changes

A fresh coat of paint on the exterior is always a great idea, but you can also freshen up your home’s appearance by installing window boxes, upgrading shutters, replacing rotting wood paneling, and polishing or power-washing the driveway and other pathways.

Front door fixes

Your front door and porch are the first impression of your space. Set a welcoming tone for the rest of your home by:

  • Re-painting the front door
  • Installing a new, stylish doorknob
  • Upgrading your house numbers
  • Arranging complementary outdoor furniture
  • Hanging wreaths and other seasonal decorations

Organized entryways

Since the main entryway is the first room you enter, homecoming clutter can easily accumulate. Instead, keep it contained by investing in beautiful and functional organization either inside a coat closet or along a mudroom wall.
