Boost Your Wichita Home’s Curb Appeal

Boost Your Wichita Home's Curb Appeal

When your friends and family drop by, the first thing they see is the front of your house. And just as important, if your home is on the market, curb appeal can be the difference between selling or sitting on it for who knows how long. Curb appeal is a big deal. It’s always important to put your best foot forward – it’s no different with your house. So we’re here to help you make your first impression count.

Draw them in

Make sure your house number is easy to read and your walkway is inviting and unique – widen your path, landscape, add a personal touch.

Make it pop

Your front door and the area around it should allow for a tasteful pop of color. It’s important to match these colors accordingly, but feel free to make it enough of a contrast to cause people stop and admire your choice. If you’re not sure about color, there are plenty of great examples and resources out there – all it takes is a little research.

Keep it simple

Make sure your walkway isn’t overgrown, and choose potted plants and flowers that can be easily arranged. Don’t overdo it – quality is always better than quantity.

Make it more than an entryway

A comfortable spot to sit and relax is a great way to draw guests in. This shows that you like to relax and exhibits your style before they stroll through the door.

Light is good

There’s nothing less inviting than a dark entryway. Make sure everything is properly lit from the street to your front door. Not only does this look great, but it’s also much safer for you and your guests.

Give them shelter

An awning is a great addition that will keep your visitors out of the elements while they wait for you to come to the door. Awnings also provide another opportunity to throw in some color and style.

So there you have it. A few simple tips that can make a world of difference and increase the value, saleability and allure of your home. If you have any questions regarding curb appeal or home renovation, contact the experts at Southwestern Remodeling. They are here to help.
