Are you ready to spice up the front of your house and add some curb appeal? Well I certainly am! Little changes can make a huge difference when it comes to the front of your home. The entry of your house is the first thing you, your family, and guests see so it’s important that it sets the tone for the rest of your home. Here are so great ideas for increasing the curb appeal of your home!
When choosing colors for your entryway, try to pick tones that coordinate or match the inside of your house. That way, the transition from indoors to outdoors will be smooth. Thanks for the photo, Better Homes & Gardens!
If you have a smallish front yard, tear out the sod and plant a beautiful garden! Visually, gardens are much more interesting than grass. Thanks for the idea, Homedit!
If you have a porch, try decorating it with furniture and flowers. An empty porch is worse than no porch at all! Thanks for the lovely photo, Better Homes & Gardens!
Better Homes & Gardens recommends keeping the colors of your porch light and airy. If you paint your porch dark colors, it will feel gloomy and small. Bright whites and light colors help keep things fresh and welcoming.
Fences can add a lot of curb appeal. Especially if you have a large front yard, fences can help the area feel sophisticated and maintained. Thanks for the photo, Better Homes & Gardens!
