When it comes to curb appeal, sometimes that’s all it takes is a slap of paint and a little creativity. Some of us just have an eye for it, while others may need a little inspiration to get the ideas flowing. You’d be surprised at what a difference even inexpensive changes can make to the curb appeal of your home. Aside from the obvious — landscaping, pulling weeds, paint, and general clean up — here is a roundup of curb appeal ideas that just about anyone can do!
1. Faux Stone Panels
I’ve always wondered why the exposed slab foundation on homes are left as such an eyesore!? I suppose it could get pretty pricey to cover the entire foundation of your home, but these faux panels will leave you with some change left in your pockets. They come in faux rock, stone, brick and wood, with several different styles and colors to choose from. These would be great for the inside of the home, too! Perhaps a fireplace surround or accent wall?
2. Camouflage An Eyesore
Leave it to that huge electrical box, piping, and wires to ruin the aesthetics of your home. Paint anything that stands out the same color as your house and they are a lot less noticeable and painful on the eyes. You could also paint other things in the yard the same color as your landscape and surroundings to help them blend in.
3. Give Your Front Door A Facelift
Replacing an old door makes a huge difference, but to save a considerable amount of money, consider a little paint and molding instead. See what a difference it can make?! The added molding to the top of the entrance makes it appear more like a grand entrance. In fact, you probably wouldn’t believe that molding is made out of foam! This project just got so much more affordable.
