As newlyweds, it’s time to make some needed changes to improve curb appeal. Here are five unique ways to fix up the yard and raise home value.
It’s the time of year for newlywed couples to make some changes. Even if you aren’t planning to sell your home right away, it’s never too early to add new lawn decorations or a porch to your yard to boost property value. Here are a few simple ways to improve your home’s curb appeal.
It can be pretty spooky at night without the right amount of light. So start your improvements by installing fun lighting fixtures to bring out the beauty of your home.
Many focal points need enough light to attract attention, so use a bright light you can place in the ground that will shine off the base of your home. Then, hang fairy lights from the awning on your porch. Don’t forget to light your walkways with solar lights.
The more outdated your fixtures look, from your mailbox to your windowpanes, the less you’ll get back in return on your sale. So to help make the porch look less scary, try to make the fixtures look new again by giving each one a facelift.
Slab a fresh coat of paint onto the windowpanes and put your family’s name on the refurbished mailbox. Whatever small project you complete will speak a lot to future homebuyers.
However, if the work of updating your fixtures becomes too much, go ahead and replace the items.
Planting a Garden
Rip out every dead plant now. You want to look your best in the morning, and so should your garden.
As you create a new layout for your landscaping, try placing potted plants in areas visible to neighbors and others who walk or drive past your house.
Don’t forget to water the plants to help keep your yard looking alive and much prettier.
Everyone loves installing new features in the yard. Whether it’s along the side of your home or located on your wraparound porch, the new items are sure to help boost the curb appeal you’re vying to achieve.
Consider adding in a porch swing you can sit on during warm days with a fresh cup of coffee. A porch swing is perfect if your home has a rustic design.
Here are other fun features you could add:
- Freshly painted shutters
- New door handles
- A water feature
Update Your Door
Another fun way to add a little more personality to your porch is with a brand-new entry door. Not only does your curb appeal improve, but it also makes the home look more contemporary and is even customizable.
So, as you continue to find new simple ways to improve your home’s curb appeal, have fun making the designs and adding items you feel represent your personality the most. Don’t forget about adding features to make the home look good and improve your property value.
