We often meet with clients that want to change or ‘dress up’ the front of there homes after its been lived in a for a few years. Homeowners like to change things up and make their home look different. It doesn’t always have to be a complete remodel to add more curb appeal to the front of your home.
We’ve found that simple ideas can help improve curb appeal. Here are some tips we suggest:
Adding Stone or Columns
You can drive around Central Florida and you’ll see stone facades on new homes that look amazing. It transforms the house from standard to modern and stylish. Stone facades come in a variety of colors, size and textures. Homeowners can pick the perfect look that compliments the current color pallet of the home itself and the existing roof. Adding columns to the front entry or on a porch adds character to a home. Columns can also have stone facades that make the front entry the focal point of the home.
Paint The Door
It may sound like a simple idea but changing the standard color of a door to something livelier, can change the entire look of a home. From a classic trendy red door to the new palette of bright Florida colors, it’s an easy way to add a pop of color and style to your home.
If it’s not on your annual list of things to do as a homeowner, add pressure/soft washing to it. Over time, things like mold or moss can accumulate on outside surfaces of your home. Roofs can become discolors, driveways can have stains and mold, windows surfaces can become dull and much more. Pressure washing surfaces can have instantaneous benefits to improving the look of a home. Soft washing your roof can not only help the appearance, but also prolong the life of your roof as well.
Installing colorful plants, pavers or mulch can provide instant curb appeal. It doesn’t have to be anything major and even those with a small budget can make a big difference. Keeping existing plants or hedges trimmed and at an appropriate height can also help.
