When you think about the exterior of your home, do you get excited or overwhelmed? Use these simple ideas to make a big impact on your curb appeal! We promise you will be excited in the end!

Adding mulch to flower beds adds a fresh detail and new dimension to your landscaping. We recommend black mulch for the biggest eye appeal as it will make any color of flowers or greenery stand out! Even if you don’t have a ton of time or funds to plant an award winning flower bed, add a few simple and low maintenance perennials like shasta daisies, hostas and ferns to start!

Greenery has been proven to produce a feeling of warmth and a sense of comfort. If you have a front porch or steps, add dimension by placing varying height containers with greenery or my favorite, a hibiscus flowering plant. This will draw the eye up to that beautiful newly painted front door!

Paint your front door! This by far is one of the easiest and cost effective ways to bring a little attention to your abode. We love a classic Heritage Red, a bright Sunshine Yellow or a romantic Sage Green. You’ll be amazed at such a big difference with such small dollar diy project!

Lighting for the win! There are a million options when it comes to lighting up your home from the outside. Simple and affordable options include the solar stick lights, or our new favorites, solar discs along your walkway. You can also opt for professionally installed uplights to showcase your homes best exterior features at night. Either way, adding this little touch will go a long way to curb appeal.

Have you cleaned your shutters and windows lately? You’d be surprised at how dingy they can get in such a short amount of time. Check out your local hardware store for window cleaning products that attach right to your hose, and of course always be safe when using a ladder. If window cleaning isn’t your thing, we've got contractors that do just that!

These projects can be done in a weekend, or one project at a time! But either way, start with one and work your way to a beautiful home with curb appeal to be envied!
