Whether you’re selling your home or not, a great way to objectively assess your home is to think like a potential homebuyer. What would a pair of fresh eyes look for in your home, just at first glace? What are the newest trends that seem to be grabbing other homes that have recently sold in your neighborhood? Asking yourself these questions will give you a better understanding of what exterior design and landscaping features are on-trend and in-demand.
Add Some Color
Adding some color to your landscaping is easy by choosing some warm-colored flowers is easy to do. There are many flowers that immediately amp up the appeal of your general landscaping and don’t require very much maintenance. If you don’t already have flower beds around your home, a local landscaping company can help you design the most beautiful landscape in your neighborhood.
Illuminate Your Landscape
Evening lighting is critical to your home’s curb appeal, especially in the warmer months when people are enjoying the outdoors more often. Even if it’s something small, like installing solar lights along a pathway, you’ll see an immediate boost in your home’s elegance. Maybe you’re interested in something a little more dramatic, like uplighting on the front of your home and some specific trees in your front yard. Either way, outdoor lighting is one of the simplest, yet most elegant ways to enhance your home’s curb appeal.
Don’t Forget the Details
Adding flower beds to the front of your home is a great way to add some fresh color, but what about your porch? Consider buying some planters and window boxes as well. You don’t have to go crazy with colors if that’s not your style. Sticking to green plants will give your home a more natural appeal altogether. Other details that seem negligible can actually make a large difference. Adding a fresh coat of paint to your front door or windows will also immediately brighten up your home’s curb appeal this spring.
