Curb Appeal

Curb Appeal

The outside of your house is the first thing people see, you want it to have a nice curb appeal whether you’re getting ready to sell or you just want to spruce it up. Here’s a list of DIY projects you can do to the outside of your home, the side everybody driving by sees. I like having people over, I’m sure a lot of you do too, so why not make it nice?

  • Upgrade your mailbox -whether it’s mounted by the door or at the road
  • Picket fence with roses or vines
  • Stone or brick paths
  • New house numbers
  • Clean up the front porch and add some rocking chairs
  • Light the pathway
  • Potted plants on the steps
  • Plant trees to frame your house
  • Replace exterior lighting
  • Replace gutters and downspouts
  • Replace old rails, doorknobs and knockers, etc
  • Paint the front door, shutters, and trim

When you’re thinking about curb appeal, consider what makes you think “wow, that house is gorgeous” or “that’s such a cute house.” A lot of times making your house looks stellar just means a weekend with a a trip or two to Home Depot for paint, plants, or some new lighting. So you don’t have a green thumb? Sometimes Lynchburg Parks & Rec has gardening classes to help get you started.
