In addition to making sure your plumbing and HVAC runs well, maintaining the exterior of your home provides significant value. Try some of these curb appeal projects that make a big difference in your home’s appearance.
Make Curb Appeal Projects a Priority
If you’re looking to repaint the exterior of your home, try a pop of color to stand out from the neighbors. Use a color palette generator or paint chips from your local hardware store to find the right shades for your house. If you’re looking for a bold statement, use neutral colors for the siding and trim, with pops of red, turquoise, navy, or purple for shutters and doors.
How Does Your Garden Grow
A simple fix is to clean up your flower beds. Landscaping is one of the the first things people notice about your house. A well-manicure lawn goes a long way towards making your home noticeable. For an added punch, create colorful flower and greenery to give your beds a more organized look.
If your windows are looking a bit worse for wear, it might be time to give them a good scrub. West Texas hard water and dirt are tough on glass panes. Scrub windows with sudsy water by combining warm water with dish soap. Follow up with a 50/50 water to white vinegar solution in a spray bottle. Wipe down with a microfiber cloth for sparkling window panes.
Swap out old light fixtures for updated models. Choose warm CFL or LED bulbs to create a welcoming glow. If you want to step it up even further, consider adding solar powered lamps along the walkway of your home.
Using a pressure washer, spray off your sidewalks, entryway, siding, and decks. Be cautious not to loosen any mortar or grout. The pressurized water helps to remove icky grit that won’t come off with sweeping. Think of it as an instant facelift for your home’s exterior.
