Tips to Improve the Kerb Appeal of Your Home

We all know that your home is important, it’s even more so inside, once you pull up that drawbridge and close that door, it’s a haven of solitude for both you and your family. The outside of your home is every bit as important though. This is especially true if you’re thinking of selling your home in the near future, first impressions do count, and you want to always give the very best impression. Even if you’re not thinking of selling, think of your guests arriving for dinner or a house party, wouldn’t you want to make sure your home makes the very best impression when they see it for the first time?

Let your home have good kerb appeal

This is what today’s post is all about – making sure your home has kerb appeal. So let’s get started. It doesn’t matter the shape or look of your house, no matter how unusual or ugly some people may find it. It’s still capable of looking its very best for guests. You want it to lift the mood as soon as someone walks down the pathway, and for the front part of your home to be presented well with everything in good condition. A freshly painted door that’s not chipped or cracked and any railings, gates or fencing in good condition will always give a great impression. 

Spend the money now and don’t expect your future buyers to front the cost

If you are thinking of selling soon, potential buyers will want to see a house that’s well maintained, they want a front garden and pathway that’s in good conditions and won’t require loads of work to bring it up to standard. Any peeling wood and paint will not look good because that spells hard work and money spent in order to repair it.

Invest in the exterior of your home and reap the rewards later

As you can imagine then it pays to invest in the front part of your home and bring the kerb appeal up a notch. Even something as simple as painting your door in a bright glossy colour will help. Choose something that matches the design of your house, the street (so you’re in sync with the neighbours properties) and let it work its magic.

Finding the right front door furniture is worthwhile

Front door furniture doesn’t have to be expensive but it can make a difference, we’re talking knockers, handles and letter boxes, again choose something that’s in line with the architecture of your property and the style of your street. Here at Sealco we have a wide variety of front door furniture and you’re sure to find something that fits. 

Lighting is crucial of course

A beautifully placed front light will give the porch an elegance and certain ambience that will not only give functional light where needed, but also add something special to the front of your house. It’ll also give a feeling of safety, as pitch black doorways/entrances can be a little intimidating. It also gives you that little bit more security and less opportunity for people to hide in bushes and trees, so burglars are put off from trying their luck. 

Some effort at improving the front of your home doesn’t have to be expensive

Keep in mind that the exterior of your home doesn’t have to be expensively furnished, but it can look cared for and well-maintained for very little. The more effort you put into this, the better your house will look on the outside, that’s whether you’re thinking of selling in the future, or whether you simply make an effort to give a good impression to guests.
