Curb Appeal: “The attractiveness of the exterior of a residential or commercial property, as viewed from the street.”
First impressions are everything. The best way to welcome guests and make a great first impression is with an inviting entryway. Making a positive first impression on your guests by improving your home’s curb appeal can easily be done in one weekend.
Although we’re entering the last few weeks of summer, it’s not too late to give your home’s exterior a mini makeover.
You know I love color. Our front door with its bold yellow hue, lets our arriving guests know that right away. Would you believe I found this gorgeous array of vibrant flowers at our local garden center?
I love how the fuchsia, white and purple flowers I selected really provide a nice contrast to the color of the front door. I added a pair of window boxes and a large planter to complete the new look.
The entire project was finished in just one day!
Our home’s updated exterior looks great with the easy addition of a traditional style planter, window boxes and vibrant flowers. I love the way it turned out!
You can make the most of your home’s appearance with these 3 quick and simple upgrades:
1. PAINT YOUR DOOR AN EYE-CATCHING COLOR
2. ADD FRESH FLOWERS
Whether via window boxes, a container garden or planting them in your front lawn, fresh flowers have a way of improving your mood, adding color and dimension to a space.
Fill 2-3 planters of varying heights with flowers and place them by your front door for a cheerful and welcoming display.
Window boxes brimming with colorful flowers and foliage add charm to the home’s facade.
If you’re like me and are often short on the time and energy required to maintain larger beds of flowers or gardens, then installing window boxes is a wonderful alternative.
3. UPDATE HARDWARE
From bronze to brass, there are many stunning door knocker and door handle finish and style options on the market to choose from.
