It’s spring, which means temperatures are rising and we are able to enjoy a few more hours of sunshine here in Carteret County! While there are plenty of warm-weather activities to partake in during the springtime, we want to encourage you to take a moment to look at the exterior of your home. Spring cleaning shouldn’t just be limited to the inside of your house – you should carry that same mentality outdoors, as well! Today, we want to provide you with a few tips and tricks to up your spring curb appeal and make your home the best on the block.
1. Fix up your front door. Often, the first thing your eye is drawn to when you look at a home is the front door. Grab a gallon of bright paint and give the door an update. Take it a step further by framing your door with some planters and colorful flowers, and hang a festive wreath or decoration in the center. Complete the look by placing a fun welcome mat at the foot of the door. You’ll be surprised at the difference your front door can make for the overall curb appeal of your home!
2. Make necessary cosmetic updates. Have a crooked gutter or broken siding? Take a few hours to replace the unattractive features of your home’s exterior to up the attraction.
3. Revamp your front porch. A nice pressure wash or a fresh coat of stain can really increase the curb appeal of your front porch. As a feature that takes up a good portion of your home’s exterior, be sure to take the time and effort to make it as attractive as possible!
4. Last but not least, landscaping. Although landscaping should be maintained year-round, use spring as a way to brighten and clean up your yard. Trim bushes and hedges and plant some bright spring florals. Greenery and plants bring a great deal of life and character to your yard.
While we live by the ocean and spend a lot of our time out on the water during the springtime, we encourage you to care about the exterior your home. Take the day or the weekend to revamp your yard to make the best first impression! Have questions about what we do here at Chalk & Gibbs?
