Green with Envy: Curb Appeal Hacks

There is truth to the saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression”—and the same philosophy applies to your home. Whether you are in the market to sell your house or are just looking for a spring refresh, curb appeal can go a long way toward increasing your home’s overall appeal.

Front door

Refresh the front door
If you haven’t paid much attention to your door lately, consider a fresh coat of paint. And don’t be afraid of a bright pop of color.

Go green
Adding plants and flowers can be an easy way to add pops of color to the exterior of your home. Consider a variety of flowers in coordinating colors, or pick up ready-made arrangements for a quick fix.

Garage attached to home

Update hardware 
Modern hardware—whether on your front door, garage, or mailbox—can help bring your home into the twenty-first century.

House number

Upgrade house numbers 
Choose numbers in a modern font with a finish that matches your other exterior hardware (light fixtures, door knocker, etc.), keeping size in mind.

Mailbox with flowers at base

Out with the old
Replacing or painting your old, worn-out mailbox can make a tremendous difference in your home’s curb appeal. Also, pay close attention to the base, and consider adding some flowers.
