Summer is a time for fun outside, family trips, and home improvement projects. With so many projects to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down the list. From a coat of paint to replacement windows in Cypress, CA—these are the best home improvements if you specifically want to boost curb appeal.
Dress Up the Entry
Your front entryway is the focal point of your home’s curb appeal. You want it to make a statement. First, clean it up by sweeping the stoop and cleaning any dirty spots around the door. Maybe choose a fresh coat of paint if your door looks faded of dingy. Then dress up your entry with potted plants and an elegant doormat.
Replace Old Hardware
Do you still have the same light fixtures, lock set, mailbox and house numbers that came with your home? These are all elements you can update to make the outside of your home more unique. These elements will have the most impact when they work collectively. So instead of mixing and matching materials and finishes, choose hardware that conveys the same aesthetic. Oiled-bronze and nickel suit more traditional styles while black and copper work well for more contemporary styles.
Clean Up Landscaping
When it comes to planning your yard the sky is the limit. You can do everything from flower beds to garden boxes, yard art to an elegant arbor. Just make sure you get rid of weeds, trim overgrown trees and bushes, and clean and reset any stonework you might have. And when you are planning your yard make sure the landscaping compliments the exterior of your home.
Introduce Outdoor Lighting
Really want to take your front landscape to the next level? Low-voltage lighting can have a huge impact. Line your walking path or intersperse your flower beds with solar lights for a quick, energy-efficient update.
Try Window Boxes, Shutters and Accent Trim
Windows often get neglected when it comes to home improvements. But if you are looking for a quick, easy way to bring some country charm to your curb appeal try traditional garden boxes and wood shutters. Choose the plants and flowers that fit the lighting conditions and you will soon have a boost of eye-grabbing beauty and color. And during the cooler months, you can use your window boxes to create festive holiday displays.
Install Replacement Windows
Dilapidated windows can have a negative impact on your home’s curb appeal. Damaged screens, faded or warped frames, rust, and outdated design are all common problems. You can’t just cover them up. And while you can probably make some repairs, you should consider replacements for windows that are 15 to 20 years. This will improve aesthetics and boost your energy savings.
