4 Steps to Beautifying the Exterior of Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    If you have driven down your street and found that your home is way behind in the beauty department, you need to do something about it.


Curb appeal is simply how your home looks when you first pull up to it, and curb appeal can often make the difference between a house that gets noticed or doesn’t. Here are four tips to increase your home’s curb appeal:

Replace Your Old Garage Doors

In an effort to improve their home’s curb appeal, often people will get their home and garage painted, but leave the same garage door. This is a big mistake. Garage doors have the ability to add character to a home and cement its style. And with today’s vast array of garage doors styles, you can find the perfect one to uplift and beautify any home.

Put in Plants and Flowers

Flowers lift everyone’s mood with a zing of color, and the right plants add a richness and depth to anyone’s yard. Together, they are an inexpensive way to increase your home’s curb appeal. Perhaps their biggest asset is that they are easy to put in and most are very easy to maintain.  Look for popular flowers in your area to make sure that what you plant will grow well.  And make sure that the ones you pick will bloom during the times you want. To highlight particular flowers you may need to elevate them or even add lighting.

Repave Your Driveway and Walkways

Driveways are the paths to your home and they need to look great as they invite and deliver guests to your home. Driveways last a long time, but even a concrete driveway will eventually begin to show signs of disrepair after years of use and exposure to the elements. When this happens, it’s time to repave your driveway.

If the walkway up to your home is in need of repair, it will lower the curb appeal of your home. So, take the time to ensure your walkways are properly laid and patched, or if appropriate, replace them entirely. You will also improve the safety for those walking up to your home. Another great idea is to install walkway lighting. This is simple these days with solar powered light sticks that can be installed in minutes.
