Easy Ways to Add Cozy Curb Appeal

Looking for a few ideas to improve your home’s curb appeal in a few easy steps? Here are some ideas to get the creative juices flowing.

  • Create an Instant Garden: Container gardens add a welcoming feel and colorful appeal to any home exterior. Buy ready-made containers from your local garden center and fill with your favorite plants. To create a dynamic setting, plan a staggered, asymmetrical arrangement.

  • Update Your Mailbox: Dress up your mailbox by painting the wooden post to match your home’s exterior color, or by surrounding it with a beautiful flowering garden.

  • Install Window Boxes: Your boxes can be made from copper or iron for a traditional look, or painted wood for a cottage feel. Mix and match flowers and plants to suit your lighting conditions and color scheme.

  • Add Shutters or Accent Trim: Exterior shutters are available in a variety of materials such as wood, aluminum, vinyl, composite, or fiberglass. New composite materials, such as PVC resins or polyurethane, make trim details durable and low maintenance. Have a street view of a boring garage? Consider building a garage arbor and planting flowing vines nearby. Another option with solid curb appeal is a garage portico that features a steel or asphalt roofs.

  • Replace Gutters and Downspouts: An older gutter system can not only make your home look tired, it may no longer be able to do the job. Replace yours with newer, snap-fit vinyl gutter systems that go together easily and require no painting. If you want to make a dramatic impact, a copper system, while pricier, will really stand out among the neighborhood homes.

  • Front Porches and Porticos Add Value to Neighborhoods: Need mega-curb appeal? It’s time to seriously consider updating your residence while adding useable living space.
