Improve curb appeal: How simple tricks can enhance your home’s appearance

Sure, there are many ways to decorate a home’s interior to ensure with a high degree of predictability that you enjoy a coveted compliment from your guests. However; the first impression your home makes on your guest is when they view it from their car while pulling into your driveway. As the old saying goes, you only get one chance to make a good first impression. Here are some simple tips for making it a good one.

  1. It’s in the data:  Select house numbers for your address that stand out.  This will be the first thing people see when searching for your home.  Big is not the only way for your address numbers to “pop”.  Think about location, color, style.  Be creative in a way that complements your home’s over all presentation.


2.) Flower Power:  Do not underestimate the affect flowers have on your guests; not just women, but men too.  Landscaping has the same affect on your home’s over all appearance as a Gucci hand bag has on a cocktail dress.  If you understand the value of accessorizing, you’ll appreciate the impact flowers and landscaping have on your home’s appearance.


3.) Mood lighting:  Lighting creates an atmosphere.  Drive up to a home for dinner with a front porch light on and compare that experience to driving up to a home with the 2 trees in the front yard illuminating with the soft glow of indirect lighting.  A string of tiny lights escorts you from the sidewalk to the front door.  Feel the difference?


Your home is likely the single largest purchase you will make in your lifetime.  Don’t skip out on these inexpensive opportunities to enhance your home’s overall presentation.  When you hear the compliments from your guests, you’ll be glad you did!
