Three Simple Steps to Spruce your Curb Appeal
Posted on: October 28, 2015 by Javier iSure
Whether you are in the market for a new home or simply want to invest in a more aesthetically pleasing home, there are countless ideas. From full renovations to small details, there is no shortage of concepts to improve your living quarters. However, an aspect that can greatly improve your home’s worth and also please the neighbors is updating your home’s curb appeal. While a Miami Homeowners Insurance policy can protect your property during the process, the following easy tips can create a sharp looking home for you to enjoy.
Update Exterior- First and foremost, pressure wash your home to get rid of grit and grime that has built up over time. While a professional job can cost between $1,000 and $2,000, your home will look resurfaced and radiant. An alternative option is also to rent a pressure washer from a home improvement store for about $80 per day. This can prime for a new paint job or just simply refresh the entire exterior.
Landscaping- The easiest way to boost your home’s curb appeal is to add or tend to existing landscaping. Install fresh green grass, clean out any old flower beds, and pull weeds that might line your home. In addition, fresh mulch will make the plant beds looks clean and new. Next, trim shrubs and reseed or resod bare spots in the lawn. If you are not keen on upholding the landscaping, consider hiring professionals for regular maintenance.
Add Pops of Color- Experts recommend painting the trim of your home an accent color that complements it. Kiplinger states that you can try out colors using online tools, such as Benjamin Moore’s Personal Color Viewer, that let you upload and “paint” a photo of your home. For a quick fix, consider planting flowers in your front yard or in window boxes. What’s more, you can add decorative features such as a wreath or flag, window coverings, doormats, and outdoor furniture to add color to your home’s exterior.
