If you’re looking to sell your home (or even if you plan to stay and just want to upgrade its overall look), curb appeal—how your home appears from the outside—can mean the difference between a quick sale and a drawn-out one. Creating curb appeal for your home doesn’t have to be a huge task—you don’t necessarily need to overhaul your home’s entire exterior. At Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, we have a few ideas for how to bump up your home’s curb appeal. Check them out below!
As the point of entry, the front door is a big focal point for your exterior. Swapping out your old door or simply adding a different, eye-catching new color can be a striking way to reshape the overall look. And don’t forget the details. A fun new welcome mat can give your entryway some charm while helping to keep dirt and grime outside. Or think about a wreath—which you could switch out seasonally—as an inexpensive yet classy way to decorate your front door.
New or improved lighting can profoundly impact the overall look of your exterior. New porch or garage light fixtures can quickly make the exterior more sophisticated. And landscape lighting can set a scene after dark. Adding it can be as easy as solar-powered walkway lights or up-lit soft spotlights to highlight your trees. Updating these features can add a level of safety while literally brightening the nighttime look of the house.
Consistency From the Window
Different treatments might make sense from the inside, but seeing them from the outside can present a jumbled, inconsistent look. Purchasing all the same treatments for each room can resolve the problem from the outside, but then you might not have the aesthetics you want inside. If that’s the case, look to some solutions from Hunter Douglas, the leader in window treatment innovation. They offer numerous window fashions that have a common backing—either white or neutral—so that the treatments all present the same look from the outside no matter what they look like inside. Window treatments from Hunter Douglas that offer this feature include, among others, Duette® Cellular Shades, Silhouette® Sheer Shades, Pirouette® Sheer Shades, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades.
