Even if you’re not intending to sell your home, it’s nice to have property that looks as good from the outside as it does on the inside. That’s why many homeowners take steps to increase their curb appeal by putting lots of effort into the exterior of their home. But changing how your home looks from the outside doesn’t have to cost a ton. At Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving Naples, Florida, we’ve got a couple of tips for giving your home a facelift without breaking the bank. Read on to learn more!
Your Front Door
Often the very first thing people notice about a house, the front door can make or break a home’s curb appeal. If your door is lacking some pizazz, consider updating its look. You can get a brand-new door as a striking statement, or even go a little more simply by adding a fresh coat of paint. Or even just get a new handle, which can be just as eye-catching. A fun welcome mat can give your front porch some charm while helping to keep dirt and grime outside. Finally, consider adding a wreath—an inexpensive yet classy way to decorate your entryway.
Your porch and garage light fixtures can also be eye-catching. Outdated fixtures can make a home look sad, so updating those might be the best crowning touch you can make. Also think about some landscape lighting—it can be as easy as adding solar-powered walkway lights or up-lit soft spotlights to highlight your trees. Doing this can also add a level of safety while literally brightening the nighttime look of the house.
Small things can pack a big punch. If you update your house numbers, you can suddenly go from bland to exciting. Same with your mailbox. Add or replace flower boxes or planters. Think about adding some outdoor furniture as an inviting way to let people know they can enjoy your home. And be sure that any current garden areas (as well as bushes and trees) are appropriately trimmed, weeded, and cared for.
Consistency at the Window
Although it makes sense to use different treatments in different rooms, from the outside, it might look like a jumbled presentation. Instead of getting all the same treatments in the front rooms, Hunter Douglas offers numerous window treatments with a common backing—either white or neutral—so that they look the same from the outside no matter what they look like inside each room. These options include Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Silhouette® Window Shadings, Pirouette® Window Shadings, and more.
