Ways to improve your home’s curb appeal!

Trying to think of ways to revamp your home’s front yard? Wonder Walls have a few ideas!

Are you preparing to sell your home and want to enhance its value? Why not increase the chances of your house getting  snapped up right away? Or maybe you’re already in your dream home and think its exterior needs a bit  of  love and attention? 

Either way, your home’s curb appeal sets the tone for the rest of the home. It’s a classic example of people assuming that what they see is what they’ll get. So if the outside of your house is rundown, they may expect the same for the inside. Whereas if the exterior is pristine, visitors and buyers will be enticed inside. This will garner more prospective buyers or a positive response from any visitors you invite over. 

Wonder Walls have come up with a few suggestions varying in difficulty and cost depending on your handyman skills and budget. These include: 

Add some more greenery 

This is an obvious option for those with a green thumb and a mind packed full of DIY landscaping ideas! The addition of planters, window boxes, and using greenery to finish off spaces like verandahs or to frame the front door of your home is ideal. Doing something as simple as giving your lawn a quick mow can instantly better the look of your front and back yard.   

A good power wash

Picking up the power washer and giving your driveway, any pathways and walls a thorough spray works wonders when it comes to improving the appearance of your home’s exterior. You can hire or purchase a power washer easily and for a reasonable price to ensure that your front yard is looking pristine all year round. 

Replace outdoor furniture

Having a bunch of weathered outdoor furniture on display in the front yard can be a bit of a turn-off. If it’s been a few years since you have replaced your outdoor furniture, consider investing in some new pieces or improving the ones you already have with some oil and paint if possible. 

New house numbers and mailbox

These can often be one of the first things people see when stepping onto your property. It is a great idea to update your house numbers and mailbox. House numbers that are faded indicate to prospective buyers and visitors that your home is slightly worn out or tired. This kind of small upgrade illustrates that you care about the details and sets the tone for the rest of the house.

Build a retaining wall 

This is ideal for homes that require hillside landscaping, as you don’t have to defy gravity because the retaining walls can hold the land together by trapping the dirt on the slope. You can also use retaining walls to add stairs to your front yard, install a fence, keep a water feature in place, highlight a particular tree, to use as landscaping blocks and plant various plants within them, increase the height of flower beds, plant a vegetable garden or even construct a waterfall.
