Curb Appeal

Whether you are in the market to sell your home, or you just want to give your home a lasting impression, be sure to create curb appeal!

The front entrance is the calling card of the home.  It’s a reflection of the family who lives there and is the very first thing your guests see when they arrive.

With a few simple tips, your entrance can be more attractive and visually appealing. Start by making the front stoop the star of the show.

Here are a few front entrance ideas to help create that WOW factor!



Make Your Front Door Pop with Color – Highlight your home by painting your front door with a contrasting color that stands out and welcomes your guests into your home.



Big Bold Numbers – Nothing makes a greater impact than adding new house numbers that are big and bold and easy to locate.

Update Lighting – Make sure your front door is adequately illuminated and can be seen from the road at night.

Say it with Flowers – From patio boxes to porch planters adding plants and flowers that complement your exterior is a beautiful way to add that welcoming feel to your front door.  Change your plants out to match the season.  Tulips and daffodils in the spring, colorful annuals in the summer, chrysanthemum and pumpkins in the fall and evergreens and poinsettias in the winter.
