Increase the Kerb Appeal of Your House


Increase the Kerb Appeal of Your House Image

One of the key factors of selling your home is making it attractive to potential buyers. There are countless ways you can do this, and the first ones that spring to mind will be to spruce up the interior of your home – re-decorating living rooms, kitchens and bedrooms to bring your house up to speed with contemporary trends. In fact, one of the most effective ways of increasing the appeal of your home is to change how it looks from the outside, helping your property catch the eye of potential buyers and passers-by alike.

Front Garden

Having a garden that is perfectly curated and designed can go a long way to making your home seem like a desirable purchase for those looking to buy a house. Try not to overload the garden with flowers or outdoor furniture as it can look crowded – use them sparingly but in the right places to ensure they catch the eye of those viewing your house. Dead spots can be quite common in gardens that have trees in – the trees themselves take up a lot of nutrients from the soil, which can cause bare patches in the lawn where the grass has been killed by lack of nutrients. Cover up these spots with plant pots or decorative pebbles/rocks to keep a consistent look throughout your lawn.

Front Door

For such a small part of your home, your front door can have a considerable effect on the appearance of your property. Whether you decide to use a striking colour contrast when painting your front door or you continue the same scheme as the rest of your exterior design, it is important that you do not neglect your front door’s appearance. Adding features such as a wreath or well-designed knocker can provide a subtle yet helpful enhancement to an otherwise plain door.

Outdoor Lighting

For highlighting the best sections of your garden, or just bringing some extra life to it, outdoor lighting is the perfect solution. Using careful placement and low-energy, high-efficiency bulbs, you can create an ambience in your garden without spending too much on your energy bills. From fairy lights to lanterns, there is a huge range of lighting options that are perfect for gardens of all sizes, and the atmospheric effect they create around your home can provide plenty of kerb appeal for those taking a look at the property after dark.
