Enhance the beauty of your most prized possession, your home, by increasing your Curb Appeal.  What is Curb Appeal?  It is the view upon arrival or drive by of your home.

Sometimes it is hard for us as the homeowner to see the faults.  A good exercise is to walk across the street to your neighbour’s house and get a good view of your house and its surroundings.  Ask yourself these three questions.

1)      What is the first Impression of your House and Yard?

2)      What are the Best exterior features and how can you enhance them?

3)      What are the Worst exterior features and how can you improve them?

Instant curb appeal may be as simple as cleaning up.  Put away unnecessary clutter,  make sure the grass is mowed and the flower beds are tidy.  Clean your exterior including windows and eaves you will be surprised what a pressure washer can accomplish!

Make sure that you have adequate porch lighting and that the bulb is not burnt out.  Your house numbers and mailbox should be visible and in good condition, it is also important that they are consistent with your exterior colour scheme and style of home.    

Another way to instantly transform your home is to add a splash of colour.  Paint your front door,  shutters, planters and even your outdoor furniture.  To finish it all off add a decorative doormat and decorative sign or wreath depending on the season.

I invite you to come into Freddie’s to see our on staff designers and colour experts. We all would be happy to help you with your outdoor projects and put together an Exterior Colour scheme that will enhance your home’s curb appeal.
