Increasing Your Home’s Curb Appeal Whether you’re remodeling, getting ready to sell or building a new home, curb appeal is important. It’s how appealing your home looks from the curb not only to interested buyers, but also to your neighbors, friends and of course you!
Other ideas for boosting your curb appeal.
Keep in mind that updating your door opens up other possibilities for boosting your curb appeal as well. If your remodeled entryway added sidelites or a double door, meaning that your overall configuration changed in the process, you might want to rearrange flower pots or furniture on your porch. You might also consider updating your outdoor lighting fixtures or mailbox to reflect the style of your decorative glass.
Whether you replace just the door, or update other elements of your home at the same time, your home will be beautifully refreshed. And if you do decide to sell your home later, the National Association of Realtors has listed improving curb appeal as one of the top five most valuable upgrades you can make. So however you look at it, you’re going to love your new curb appeal!
