Increasing Curb Appeal - Four Practical Tips that Work

July 07, 2014

Appearances don't just matter in people. They're the same for homes too! If the façade looks weathered and the lawn unkempt, nobody will bother looking at the inside.

Are you hoping to sell your property in five years? It's never too early to make a great impression. Check out our tips for enhancing curb appeal:

Paint away

Even top quality paints will look worn out over time. Thus, it's necessary to put a fresh coat every now and then. Repainting the external walls in a new hue is a quick way to update the look of your home.

Of course, painting a three storey structure is not an easy feat. Those DIY skills would be useless without the right access equipment. For instance, scissor lifts ensure that you can safely reach the top while standing on solid surface. If you live in Parkville, consider getting a scissor lift hire in Melbourne.

Get more information on companies offering scissor lift hire in Melbourne by surfing the web.

1. Dress up your front door

The front entry is the focal point of a house's curb appeal. Add a blast of colour to the door and clean off dirty spots around the knob. This trick helps this area make a statement to visitors and passers-by.

2. Install outdoor lighting

Low-voltage landscape lighting doesn't just illuminate pathways. It emphasises certain features that ought to be highlighted. Outdoor lamps or rope lights can be added to trees or specific parts of the house.

3. Replace that fence

Worn out fences should be replaced to avoid further damage. A wooden fence looks charming and rustic. But the one made of concrete or steel can better withstand the elements. Get in touch with a home fencing specialist for advice on the suitable material to use.

4. Create an instant garden

Add a welcoming feel by filling containers with your favourite plants. Choose a variety of colours to create a more inviting atmosphere.
