Too many homeowners ignore their home’s curb appeal until they decide it’s time to move. No matter if you are looking to sell your coastside home in the near future, or have no plans of ever moving, take the time to spruce up your home’s curb appeal now with these affordable makeovers that won’t break the bank.
New House Numbers
One of the first things that tend to catch your eye on the outside of a home is the house numbers. For someone who has never been to your home, they are looking for your house number to confirm they are at the right address. It’s time to spruce up your home’s house numbers. Choose numbers that complement the interior of your home and let visitors know what they can expect on the inside. New numbers can be found at any large home improvement store.
The entry door into your home is another one of those things that first catches the eye of a visitor. For as little as $25 a gallon, you can buy some exterior paint and give your front entry door a whole new look. Go bold when it comes to painting your entry door and choose a bright color that accents your home.
If the exterior light on your home is outdated or showing wear, replace it. A quick but easy change can easily add curb appeal to your coastside home. When purchasing a new light fixture consider the style of your home and choose one that not only puts out enough light to adequately light up your entryway, but also complements your home as well.
It may sound simple but getting a new doormat for the exterior of your home goes a long way. Think of it as getting new carpet on the inside of your home, but for a lot less the cost. If your current outdoor door mat is stained, faded, worn down, or all scuffed up it’s time for a new one.
Upgrade your mailbox to add instant curb appeal to your home. It does not matter if your mailbox is mounted to your home or along the road, a new upgraded mailbox can make your coastal home feel updated. You can find mailboxes in a wide range of prices from $20 and up at many major home improvement stores.
