The condition of your home’s exterior has a great impact on its curb appeal and value. Peeling paint, missing shingles and cracked windows create an unsightly appearance that reflects badly on you as a homeowner. At other times, while there are no problems with your home’s structure, it may simply be lacking pizazz. Handyman Connection® of Boise recommends these upgrades for a boost in appeal:
Add a Pediment
Create an attractive entry for your traditional home by investing in elegant exterior crown molding and a pediment addition over your front door. This classic design enhances the grandness of formal-style homes for an enviable exterior. Choose a trim color that matches your home’s architectural look and style for an even more striking effect.
Construct a Walkway
Make a lasting first impression on your guests by adding a stone walkway leading up to your front door. This approach works best with a traditional home, such as a Cape Cod, a Colonial or a Tudor, as it complements that rustic appeal. By using real stone, you add a dash of sophistication that can greatly improve your property’s appeal. It also makes it easier to create a seamless connection between your landscape and your architecture.
Create a Well-Lit Entrance
Enhance your home’s nighttime appeal by installing different kinds of lighting fixtures on your front porch. This does not only help guests distinguish your home from others, but it also creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. Consider surface-mounted lanterns or an overhead light for your entryway. You can also add lights leading up to your front door for a gentler transition. Additionally, it can help your guests safely reach your front door.
