Whether a person is planning on selling one’s home or one simply wants to make their home look a bit better from the street’s view, there are plenty of ways to add some curb appeal to a home without doing anything drastic with its appearance.
- Adding Plants Around the House
One simple way to add curb appeal to a house is to add some decorative plants wherever it may seem fit. This could be around the mailbox and the home number or it could be decorating the porch. A splash of color can make any home more appealing from the curb.
- Adding Lights to the House
Installing some small and decorative garden lights along the driveway and surrounding the porch may not add much during daylight hours, but when the sun begins to set, the curb appeal of the house will really shine. Warm lights and designs on the lighting are subtle enough not to draw too much attention, but impactful enough to improve curb appeal.
- Purchasing a Doormat
While quite subtle and inexpensive, a doormat can be welcoming to those entering and leaving the home, but it can also add a touch of completion to those who can see it from the curb. There are plenty of doormat styles to choose from, with some being basic and unobtrusive and others having bright colors or quirky phrases on them.
- Changing Out the Doorknob
This method of adding curb appeal to a house may be a bit more of a project than some would expect, but the effects it can have are long-lasting. Doorknobs for the front door are arguably one of the first things people see as they approach a house, so a doorknob that particularly complements the colors or style of a house can add a wonderful touch.
- Painting the Doors and Trim
In the same way as how doorknobs can bring together the appearance of one’s front door, choosing to paint the trim and the door a bold or expressive color can also increase the curb appeal of the house. This is particularly the case when the door is painted a bright color that can easily be seen from the curb view.
- Decorating the Mailbox
Another one of the most noticeable aspects of a house from the curbside is the mailbox. Decorating a mailbox can be as straightforward as buying some small decorations, or one could choose to purchase a whole new design for the box or repaint it all.
