Do it in a Day: 6 Front Entrance Upgrades
The Spring market is upon us! If you are thinking about selling, here are 6 simple things you can do to make your entrance enticing.
Replace Old Hardware
House numbers, the entry door lockset, a wall-mounted mailbox, and an overhead light fixture are all elements that can add style and interest to your home's exterior curb appeal.
Window boxes offer a fast, easy way to bring color and charm to your home's curb appeal. Choose boxes made from copper or iron for a traditional look.
Dress Up the Front Door
Your home's front entry is the focal point of its curb appeal. Make a statement by painting your front door with a pop of color. Use metal polish on the door fixtures. Choose a swag, flag, or wreath that reflects your personal style.
Symmetry is not only pleasing to the eye, it's also the simplest to arrange. Symmetrical compositions of light fixtures and front-door accents create welcoming entryways.
Using matching potted plants at the end of the walkway or on the porch is a simply way to draw the eye in and highlight your entrance.
Enhance Your Porch With Seating
Welcome guests in with comfortable furniture on the porch that beckons visitors to pull up a chair and stay awhile. Rocking chairs or a swing that sways in the wind are often a calling card for visitors. Even a small chair or a minuscule table on your porch can serve as a resting station between outside and inside and boost your curb appeal. And because your front porch is the public face of your home, seating can encourage guests to stay outside and engage with neighbors and streetside activity, too.
Cool off with an overhead light fixture that is also a fan.
Low-voltage landscape lighting makes a huge impact on your home's curb appeal while also providing safety and security. Fixtures can add accent lighting to trees or the house or can illuminate a walking path.
