 VIDEO: Spring Spruce Up To Increase Curb Appeal

Tip 1:  Refresh the Door.

Give your front door a fresh coat of paint or consider replacing the door if needed.  Use a door color that contrasts with the color of the house.  
Here’s one example from one of my clients who selected a bright red door color to contrast nicely with the brick on the house, giving the entry a real pop.
According to HGTV, updating your front door can have up to a 95.5% return on your investment.

Tip 2, Spruce Up Your Entry.  

-Give your home’s exterior surfaces a good wash down.
-Splurge for a new doormat. For a customized look, you can order a doormat that has your house number, family name, or initials.  
-Strategically place some decorative pots with fresh plants.

Tip 3: Clean Up the Lawn.  

-Pick up yard debris that has fallen over winter.

-Get your flower beds in order, refreshing the mulch.  Make sure to add some flowers for a pop of color.

-Don’t forget to trim back overgrown hedges

Remember, Front Door Magazine estimates that the return on your investment for landscaping projects is 100%!

If you follow these suggestions, you’ll have a more attractive and inviting house.  And, if you are selling, these projects will make your home more welcoming for potential buyers.
