Curb Appeal is defined as the attractiveness of the exterior of your home as viewed from the street. Also for potential buyers this is the first impression they will receive.
Here's a test: go to Google Earth and a Google your address. Now view it from the "street view" setting and see what you think.
Does your home look appealing if you were a potential buyer, or a visitor, or guest?
Creating curb appeal doesn't have to be a huge undertaking. Often it is simply re-arranging outdoor furniture, outdoor planters and at most perhaps re-painting a front door and/or garage door.
Here are the top 5 ways to add Curb Appeal to your home.
1. Dress up your front door - with paint, polish up or replace hardware etc. Tidy up. Get a new welcome mat.
2. Create symmetry
3. Add outdoor lighting such as solar lanterns etc.
4. Set out flower boxes and outdoor planters
5. Add outdoor décor such as exterior wall art, bird baths, etc.
I love outdoor decorating and I hope you will too!
