Whether you’re looking to put your home on the market or not, beautifying your home’s exterior is always a good idea – especially if it’s been years since your last renovation. Boost your home’s curb appeal by starting off with these simple steps:

boost your curb appeal

Step 1: Fresh exterior paint
The first step to boosting your home’s curb appeal is to add a fresh coat of paint. First appearances matter, so choose a color that appeals to your own personal home interior style, but also resonates with a general crowd. For example, painting the entire front of your home red might stand out in a negative way. That being said, it also helps to take a look at the homes in your neighborhood and choose accordingly.

Step 2: Install outdoor lighting
After a fresh coat of paint, you’ll need new outdoor lighting. There are plenty of lighting solutions on the market that can illuminate your home and create shadows to accentuate the features you like best. Bonus tip: install a spotlight in the left corner of your front yard and shine it upwards towards the roof to create more height.

Step 3: Replace broken roof shingles
If you look from the opposite side of the street and discover dark gaps on your roof, chances are you need to replace broken shingles. You might even find pieces of shingles on the front lawn! Either way, replacing them is important, as it not only boosts your curb appeal but also keeps a fundamental element of your home intact.

Step 4: Power wash your home
The final step to a beautiful home is to make it spotless. After a while, your home can get extremely dirty, so it helps to power washing your windows and siding. Trust us – the color of your home’s exterior will come back to life and you’ll realize that it was in fact dirty all along!
