5 Do-it-Yourself Ways to Increase Curb Appeal this Summer

As summer heats up, spend some time outdoors checking these easy, do-it-yourself, Curb Appeal improvements off your list. Aside from the more obvious tasks of landscaping, painting and general cleanup, follow these guidelines you’ll be five steps closer to increasing your home’s curb appeal, thus achieving maximum resale value of your home.

  1. Shine on! – Solar lights add excitement to your yard’s most intriguing landscape features. A simple solar powered beam makes your yard stand out, and your electric bill stay low- because of the spot light’s solar powered nature.
  2. Camouflage an Eyesore – Unsightly electrical boxes, piping or even large garbage bins can be a real eyesore to your home. Remedy this by painting anything that stands out against your house, and store garbage bins in a tasteful storage shed.
  3. Door Allure – Your home’s door is often the focal point of the home. Clean lines are often a key component in the style of modern doors. Improve your door by painting it a neutral color – black, white, or gray — common to a variety of door styles.
  4. Go Floral – Flowers make people happy. Make your home happy too by adding window boxes to your home. Not only will window boxes make your home’s windows seem larger, they bring nature inside the home by providing a pleasant view as you look outdoors.
  5. Entries Are Everything – A pleasing entryway goes a long way for a home. Create a more inviting entryway by building a pathway using slate or stone and people will feel welcome as they approach your home.
