How your home looks on the outside may be one of the reasons you purchased the property. Even if that’s the case, you may get tired of your home’s exterior design over time, or unexpected events like storms may force you to make some changes. Whether you’re just plain tired of your home’s look or you have no choice but to make changes, take advantage of the opportunity to improve your property’s curb appeal.

When your house looks wonderful and welcoming, it can put a spring in your step whenever you walk down the path leading to your door. The appearance of your residence can also help you get top dollar if you choose to sell your home down the line.

If you’re rolling your eyes at the work and expenses involved with improving your home’s curb appeal, stop. There are many affordable things you can do to transform the look of your home that require minimum effort and little investment.

Use Contrasting Colors

Have you ever driven by a home that’s painted white but that has an eye-catching, colorful front door? If so, you’ve witnessed the use of contrasting colors in action. When you use contrasting colors on your home’s exterior, it makes it simple to highlight architectural features that might otherwise be overlooked. Windows, roof-lines, doorways and period hardware are examples of elements you can highlight easily by using contrasting colors.

Employ Symmetry

When you look at the other homes on your street, what do you see? Do you notice matching lights on each side of the entryway or the same type and number of bushes under each front window? Infusing some symmetry into your exterior design is a smart way to change the appearance of your home and give it a balanced, pleasing look.

Go Green

Even if you don’t have a yard, you can still improve the look of your home by adding some plants to your property. Rather than putting in a garden, pick up some potted plants and place them along your walkway. If there isn’t room for that, consider adding a topiary to your porch or putting plant-filled window boxes outside your windows. Believe it or not, the addition of just one plant can go a long way toward improving your home’s curb appeal.
