Summer is the perfect time to spruce up the exterior of your home and help it look its best year-round. Besides making your home look more welcoming, boosting your home’s curb appeal is also a fantastic way to attract potential homebuyers. If you are thinking about revamping your home’s curb appeal, these inexpensive projects are the perfect place to start!
Get Rid of the Grime with a Power Wash
Years of accumulated dirt and dust can really put a damper on your home’s appearance. A power wash is a simple way of freshening up a home’s exterior that can make it look brighter and more attractive. Concrete driveways and walkways can also really benefit from a good power wash!
Touch up Your Home’s Paint Job
Through regular wear and tear, it is natural to have the paint on your home bubble and crack in a few spots. Thankfully, fixing these spots isn’t too much of an issue! If a part of your home’s paint is peeling, take a few chips to your local paint store to find a color that matches. Be sure to do a couple of test patches to see how a color looks once it has dried. Once you have your matching color, you will want to scrape the paint off of any rough-looking patches and apply a primer before you start painting.
Bring Some Color to Your Garden
Bright, colorful flowers are a great way to raise your home’s curb appeal! Perennial flowers such as certain types of sunflowers and lilies are low-maintenance additions that are sure to bring a welcoming splash of color to your front yard.
