05 Jun Upping The Curb Appeal Of Your Home
Maintaining a home requires more than regular cleaning and taking out the trash. Just as integral to keeping your home in tip top shape is how your home looks like from the outside. So we’ll take a look into how you can build up your curb appeal and keep your home looking fresh.
First, let sunshine in. By cleaning your windows, shutters, and glass panels, not only do you get a clearer view, your home looks sparkling clean and polished. And just as the windows are cleaned up, your door and entryway are a logical next step to clean and maintain. Adding a fresh splash of paint can easily update your home and add a pop of color. Shine up metallic finishes like the doorknob and key lock.
Cutting the grass and landscaping shapes your home and can create a more polished look. Trimming branches and shrubs can greatly clean up your home’s outside appearance. And find new ways to update your homes outdoor look with new plants and flowers. Adding potted shrubs brings both floral and earth tones to accent your entryway, and fun floral arrangements add a fresh pop of color.
And then, put some pressure on your walkway. By using a water pressure washer, you can spray away the dingy and old look from your walkway and driveway, creating a cleaner look for your home. You can also pressure wash your home as needed to remove any build up, debris, and dirt collected throughout the year and the Atlanta summer pollen. You can also pressure wash your deck or patio, fencing, and mailbox.
This isn’t something you’ll see directly but updating your sprinkler system can have a great impact on your home’s exterior presence. Set up your sprinkler system and ensure it’s set up properly to maintain a lush lawn and landscape throughout the year.
Another behind the scenes task to consider is installing or updating insulation. This is one way to keep the outside heat from seeping into your home, and keeping your electricity bills low!
With the earth, plants, and physical home polished, what better way to showcase your hard work than with excellent lighting. Ample lighting creates a warm and inviting home. Freshen up your lighting and lighting features – dust off those cobwebs and replace burnt out bulbs.
A home reflects its dwellers, and every homeowner has an exciting opportunity to showcase who they are with their home. We hope this entices you to make your home your own, from the outside in.
