Techniques for increasing curb appeal

Posted: December 6, 2012 in Uncategorized

It is strange to worry about curb appeal in the middle of winter.  I was hoping we wouldn’t have to worry about any of this until spring.  Our house would be covered in snow and blend in a little better with the neighbors, but with such a mild winter it is hard not to see there is some room for improvement. I love Censational Girl’s recommendations for increasing the curb appeal of your home.

  • Paint or replace your front door
  • Create a container garden
  • Add window boxes
  • Create seating on your porch
  • Add architectural accents
  • Update garage door
  • Landscape
  • Light the patch to your door

While these may seem obvious, sometimes it is difficult to figure out where to start.  I think we will start with just a few next spring and summer.  Our home has roughly 20 windows and minimal landscaping around the house.  The addition of a few window boxes and strategic landscaping will really help our home stand out.
