Curb Appeal…..

May 14, 2021

Spring is here in Minnesota – the grass is growing, the birds are singing, and beautiful flowers are starting to bloom.  First impressions matter and whether you’re getting ready to sell, or you’re just looking to add a little extra pizazz to your home’s exterior, boosting your curb appeal can be quicker and easier than you might expect. Here are just a few projects to consider.


At the top of the list is to Paint your front door – Buy a gallon of paint and add some brightness. Bold trends are in but make sure it doesn’t clash with other colors of your home. Then update your door hardware, swap out exterior lights and landscape lights to help the visual appeal in the evening, it is also a great safety precaution. Also, add flower boxes and fun doormats that are interchangeable. Maybe install new house numbers or a mailbox. Adding patio furniture such as a porch swing is inviting and adding texture with pillows and rugs. Lastly, lay some fresh mulch, spruce up your shrubs and add pops of color with potted flowers.

Now take pride in the updates you just made to your home. Better yet, share some pictures with us of your latest curb appeal projects.
