Home Improvement Tips To Improve The Curb Appeal Of Your Home

If you're trying to improve the curb-side appeal of your home, whether you're trying to sell it or if you just want to be the envy of your neighbors, there are a number of useful home improvement tips you can use in order to quickly spruce up the exterior of your home. Being able to come home to a well-manicured house every day after work is a great experience, and if you belong to a homeowner's association it may be mandatory in order to keep neighborhood real estate prices high, so read on.

An awesome home improvement method to add instant curb-side appeal to your home is to give it a fresh coat of paint. Exterior housing colors tend to come into and out of style regularly; it may be time to give the outside of your home an update. Paint naturally becomes dull and chipped over time, so repainting your home will help liven it up and give it a sense of being well-maintained. You should look at what exterior paint colors the other houses in your neighborhood are using as you want to stand out, but not clash with the rest of the street. You should generally select subdued, light colors that are all within the same color family so that the colors on your house complement each other. Lighter colors make your home seem larger and more inviting, whereas darker colors are used to attract a viewer's attention to certain architectural details such as arches and lattices that you want to show off. If you paint your entire house in too dark of a color, it will look small and depressing.

One of the most important ways to increase the curb-side appeal of your home is to trim the trees in your front yard. Overgrown trees can make a house look ominous rather than inviting. Overgrown trees can obscure someone's view of your home from the street, which will ruin all the hard home improvement work you have put into increasing your home's curb-side appeal. It's important to keep trees trimmed so that your home looks more open and appealing to viewers. They often block light coming from in the inside of your home when the sun goes down. There are many landscaping companies that can help your prune your trees so that more of your house is visible from the street and their services are quite inexpensive.

Better exterior landscaping in the form of hedges and flowers is a great way to increase the curb-side appeal of your home. You can buy flowers at many home improvement retail stores, just make sure to select ones that will be able to survive in your soil and climate and more importantly that will be able to flower. You can research guides to flowers that grow in your region on the internet. Flowering plants add a great amount of color to the exterior of your house which is visually interesting and adds appeal. If you're too busy to maintain a garden by yourself, you can hire a landscaping company to periodically trim and water your plants. Hedges are attractive when used to mark property boundaries in place of a fence or to line a path to your home, but make sure to keep them properly maintained so that they don't overgrow.

If you're trying to sell your home on the market and are taking pictures to show potential buyers, make sure the weather is on your side. While not really a typical ?home improvement? tip, you should always take pictures in the best lighting possible -- around noon on a sunny day. Pictures of houses taken during overcast or rainy days will make your colors seem washed-out and make your home seem older than it really is. You also want to minimize the effect of shadows cast by trees onto your home, as it can obscure the details of all the hard work you've done trying to increase your curb-side appeal.
