5 Affordable Tips To Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal
When you buy a new home, it’s easy to take the fresh, clean feel for granted. Over time, even the most conscientious homeowners can lose ground on their home’s curb appeal. Make your home shine with these five tips.
Rent a pressure washer – Dirt, mildew, and grime will inevitably accumulate on your house, porch, driveway, walkways, and fences over time. Rent a pressure washer from your local hardware store and spray down these surfaces. You’ll be amazed at the difference.
Wash the windows – It’s easy to overlook the fingerprints and smudges on your windows. However, pulling out the window cleaner can make a huge difference both inside and outside the house, especially if it’s been a while since you last cleaned the windows.
Edge the lawn – If you’re looking for a cheap, easy way to make a big impact, this is it. Edging helps separate your lawn from your other plants, landscaping, and walkways, giving your yard a crisp, clean feel.
Add mulch – Adding mulch to your plant beds and around your trees doesn’t just make them look great. It also helps block weeds and protects your plants from drought and frost.
Spruce up the doorway – Make your entryway more inviting by adding a bold, new door-knob, an elegant knocker, or a fresh coat of paint. Get a great doormat and a couple inviting statement pieces and your home is sure to wow visitors and make you feel at home!
