Make Your House Standout

Make Your House Standout!

You don’t have to curb your enthusiasm when it comes to boosting curb appeal! Make your home stand out and increase its value with these simple and cost-effective tips.

Deep Cleaning
If you don’t already own one, rent a pressure washer to brighten up your home’s exterior. You may also use a deck
brush and cleaning solution to scrub away dirt. Get rid of any yard debris and cobwebs by sweeping your porch or patio, and wipe down any outdoor furniture.

Front Door Makeover
Paint the front door a new shade, or just touch it up with a fresh coat. While you’re at it, think about upgrading your doorknob to a keyless entry, or looking into a Ring video doorbell for added security.

Update Porch Décor
Dress up the front porch with outdoor furniture, potted plants and other décor for the season. Consider adding a rocking chair, flag, doormat or porch swing — but avoid making it too cluttered. If you have the space, perhaps add a fire pit or a few lounge chairs.

Garage Door Refresh
In addition to refreshing the paint job, you may consider purchasing DIY add-ons like magnetic handles from your local home improvement store. You can also easily craft faux garage door windows by following tutorials on YouTube. These affordable options will make your garage door look like new, with minimal handy work.

Light It Up
The right lighting can transform a space. Consider small porch lamps or outdoor string lights that match your home’s style. Swap out bulbs in existing fixtures for brighter, longer-lasting LED ones. You may also consider motion-sensor lights for added security as well as lights to illuminate your driveway or walkway.

How to Create A Home Oasis

Well-thought landscape design can do wonders for your curb appeal. Here’s how to start creating your oasis in just a few easy steps.

Step 1 ~ What Plants Work in Your Region?
Stroll around the neighborhood to get an idea for what plants work in your region.

Step 2 ~ Pick the Plants That Work for You
Factor in how much work you’re willing to do, since some plants require more maintenance than others. Roses, jasmine, honeysuckle or fresh herbs can provide a fresh, floral scent in your yard. Fruit trees can be fun to harvest and stay with the property, increasing its value. Try lemon and orange trees in warmer climates and plum, pear or

apple trees further north.

Step 3 ~ Choose Your Planters
Make them pop, but keep them within the style of your home.

Step 4 ~ Hang Up a Hummingbird Feeder
To create a colorful, more vibrant garden, hang a hummingbird feeder. These birds spread pollen to help your flowers grow more easily.

Step 5 ~ Maintenance Is Key!
Take some time each weekend to water the plants, remove any weeds and keep the yard space beautiful!
