7 Ways To Boost Your Curb Appeal in St. Helens, OR

7 Ways To Boost Your Curb Appeal in St. Helens, OR

There is a notion in the world of selling homes that is known as curb appeal, in which you can tell a lot about the value of a home-based on how people think of it just by looking at it from the distance of the curb -- or maybe even driving in front of it!

Though one might think that improving the exterior of your home and thus boosting curb appeal is going to be a tremendous project that is overwhelming and untenable, the truth is that such projects can be done with some time and work done by you.

With that being the case, let's now look at seven ways to boost your curb appeal in St. Helens, OR

1.An Enhanced Walkway

When someone comes to your home, they will generally make their way to your front or side door -- and the way to get there ideally will be in the form of a walkway.

If you don't yet have a walkway of course you're best off making one, and if you do have one there's a good chance that you can find a way to upgrade it as it were.

Adding lighting, for example, is.a fairly simple way to make a good walkway better -- and if you make use of solar-powered walkway lights you don't even have to be concerned about finding a way to power the lights!

2. Power Washed Exterior

An exterior that is dirty is not going to reflect well on your curb appeal, and one of the best ways that you can get your home clean is by power washing it.

There are some key things that you will have to bear in mind when you are power washing your home exterior, such as the settings on the washer and how close you are to it but these are things we will cover in a future blog.

3. A New Doormat

Though there are plenty of curb appeal upgrades that are going to set you back by a bit financially, not all of them do -- and a new doormat is one such example.

Though you might think that an old worn doormat is not going to be that big of a deal, from a curb appeal perspective it is pretty bad -- it looks like the person whose house it is doesn't take good care of their home.

The best thing you can do is to replace your doormat before it gets to that state but if it has, you certainly should replace it.

4. Cleaning The Roof

Another thing you should think about when looking to boost your curb appeal is the way that your roof looks -- and if it is sufficiently dirty, it bears a thorough cleaning.

The other issue with having a dirty roof (such as having a collection of leaves from nearby trees) is that over time the things on your roof can actually cause long-term damage.

5. Better Front Garden

From the perspective of aesthetics, you are going to do a lot of good for your home if you add a front garden to your home.

Naturally, if you already have a garden out there it is just a matter of looking for ways that you can possibly improve it --and there are likely ways to do such a thing.

It might even be the case that adding a few vegetables to your front garden could be the thing to make your garden that much better.

6. Painted Window Shutter

Some people will suggest that you will have to paint the entirety of your home exterior in order to improve it but would you believe that this is not necessarily the case? Indeed, just by taking the time to paint your window shutters, you can vastly improve the appearance of your home and before you think that the color has to match the house, consider a contrasting color instead.

7. Trimmed Trees

Lastly, consider trimming the trees in front of your home -- for there can be a vast difference between how a home looks when the trees are trimmed and how it looks when the trees are all over the place.

Though in the theory, of course, you can do this kind of thing yourself, for best results you might want to get a professional company to help you.
