If you are looking to vamp up your home or even hoping to sell it in the near future, curb appeal is an important thing to think about. The front of the house is something that will get a lot of attention when people come to see your house and it gives the first impression of you and your home. If your front entryway is looking drab and dull it is time to make a change and here are some of our top ways to make the front of your house look well kept this year.
One of the best ways to change the appearance of the front of your house is to install new house siding. Siding can definitely bring new life to your home and give it a modern and fresh feel. There are plenty of options to choose from, so why not change the whole dynamic of your home by installing new siding this year?
Paint the door
If you are looking to make a big impression on the front of your home, you need to consider changing or upgrading your front door. A lot of houses these days have white PVC doors and these can look boring and dull, as well as becoming dirty very quickly. To solve this issue you can either change out the door or paint the door a stunning color, just make sure it complies with HOA regulations if you have an HOA. Depending on your taste, you could choose a bold and bright color like red, or a pastel shade such as mint. Any new color you add to the front of the house will make it look new, and everyone who visits you will likely use your door as a talking point.
Hanging baskets are a sure-fire way to make the front of your home look great without much fuss. To install hanging baskets to the house you will need a drill that goes through brick and a strong hook, and once you have this set up you can create a beautiful basket. You can either choose one larger plant like a fuchsia, or you could create an ensemble with plants such as pansies, marigolds, and sweet Williams. Brighten up the area around your front door and it will make a huge difference to you.
Clean the driveway
Cleaning the driveway is an easy way to bring a dull-looking home back to life. Over time your driveway will pick up all sorts of dirt and mold and it is something you won’t necessarily notice until it is too late. To make a change and freshen it up once more it is a good idea to use a pressure washer to clean the driveway.
Add bedding plants
If you have a lawn in the front garden, why not vamp it up and add some bedding plants? Bulbs such as tulips could be a beautiful option as a border plant, or even small daisies and cosmos can be an amazing idea to vamp it all up.
