7 More Ways To Boost Your Curb Appeal in Palos Verdes Estates, CA
When you’re looking to improve the look of your home, you may be well aware that curb appeal improvement is a good thing even if you’re not looking to sell any time soon.
There are so many things that you can do to improve your curb appeal that it could not possibly fit in any one given blog, to say the least — and so we have come back with some more tips for you… and if you like these we can always make another?
Let’s look at and consider seven more ways to boost your curb appeal in Palos Verdes Estates, CA
1. Paint The Door
One thing that you should be able to do fairly easily if you take the time to learn about it is to paint your front door.
(Alternatively, you can always paint one of the other doors to your house and it will still make the house look nicer but for curb appeal purposes the front door is typically the best to paint.)
The purpose of doing this is that you can very likely make your front door look better than it already does and also maybe get it to have a color that will go better with your home than the existing color.
2. Replace The Doormat
Though it may be difficult to conceive of the thought of a doormat being replaced as being an improvement to curb appeal, it actually makes sense when you think about the condition that some doormats get over time.
Even if you don’t get a particularly decorative doormat, a new doormat will look significantly better for your home than if you have an old worn one that is frayed.
3. Flag To Hang
Years ago you would typically see only one or two kinds of flags — either a person would hang the stars and stripes, or they would hang the flag of a country they particularly like.
Now, however, there are so many kinds of flags that people hang related to their pets, their favorite holidays, and more — you can hang flags for just about anything and represent what you like.
4. Illuminate The Walkway
While you may have a perfectly good and functional walkway, if you don’t have any kind of system set up to illuminate it you may be doing a disservice to people who visit your home — and people who are near your home at night won’t even realize that you have a walkway if it’s not illuminated.
To add some light to your walkway can take something as simple as lights that are solar-powered — they have batteries that are charged during the day and then light up at night and so there’s no complicated wiring that needs to be set up.
5. Upgrade Your Porch Lights
Speaking of lighting, if you haven’t touched your porch lights in a good number of years there’s always the possibility that you could have better lights.
Upgrading your porch lights will not only make your porch look better but in theory, you could save money in the long term by having lights that illuminate just as well but with less electricity!
6. Expand The Porch
Also along the lines of porches are the size of the porch and though it’s a bit of a bigger project, expanding the size of your porch could be one of the best things you can do for your curb appeal.
A lot of older houses have fairly small porches and if you want to give your home a more modern look you can start by expanding the size of your porch.
This can additionally make spending time on your porch more fun as you will be able to host more people.
7. Trim Your Trees
Lastly, one thing that will do a lot for curb appeal that may not cost you anything (if you have the right equipment) is to trim your trees.
If you can just imagine how it would look to drive by a house and see trees that are out of control, branch-wise, versus one which has been trimmed you can think that the latter will look better!
