Here’s what you can do to boost your home’s curb appeal!
Three Simple Cleaning Projects That Boost Curb Appeal
There are a few simple projects you can do to improve curb appeal right away. These include:
Spruce Up Window Exteriors: You might clean the inside of your windows regularly, but how often do you get around to the outside? A simple mixture of dish detergent and white vinegar will have the glass sparkling. Additionally, consider adding window boxes, which add instant curb appeal. Find a window box that matches the exterior decor of your home and fill it with bright flowers!
Get Rid of Driveway Stains: There are plenty of opportunities for cars, lawnmowers, and snow blowers to leak various fluids onto the driveway. This includes oil, transmission fluid, and gasoline. Whether the stain is new or old, a quick Google search can provide tips and tricks for removing marks left by leaked fluids from a paved driveway or an uncoated concrete garage floor.
Tidy Up Your Yard: It’s easier to boost your curb appeal if you get rid of whatever mold, mildew, or general grime is on your furniture. Also, make sure to update your landscaping! A quick pruning and weed pulling is a great, affordable way to boost the value of your home.
Doing these simple projects maximize your outdoor space, create a more serene environment, and increase your property value all at once!
Declutter Your Yard Furniture
When it comes to increasing your curb appeal, many realtors recommend decluttering your outdoors in addition to indoors. This means cleaning up all children’s toys, removing all dog waste, and making sure that your outdoor furniture is nice. If your outdoor furniture looks worn, it might be time to think about decluttering.
One way to begin decluttering is to look at all your pieces of outdoor furniture and ask yourself:
When was the last time I used this?
Does this item bring me joy?
Does this contribute to my ideal outdoor environment?
Does it work?
How likely am I to make use of this?
If these answer to these questions is “no,” then it’s time to get rid of it.
