Making your home more appealing

Are you getting ready to put your property on the market? Have you just moved into your very own place and want to put your stamp on your new home? Do you just want to one up the neighbours by having the best looking house on the street? Making your home more appealing doesn’t need to cost a fortune, or take up every weekend. Follow our top tips and you’ll have a more appealing home in no time at all.

Paint – Do some research and find the best paint colours and shade that suit the style and era of your home. Add a coat of paint to walls, trims, window frames, doors – whatever needs a refresh. But first, take a walk around the neighbourhood and make sure that you choose colours that will blend in, or just steal a little inspiration. If you are adding street appeal with a view to sell – don’t choose colours that are too controversial, pick a colour palette with a large fan base.

Outdoor Furniture – Place some outdoor furniture so you can showcase the potential uses for the space, or to provide you with an additional outdoor entertainment area to enjoy.

Lighting – To add to the safety of the front of your home and create ambience, lighting is an effective and relatively cheap idea. Solar lights or lamps can easily add warmth and vibrancy.

Entrance – Nothing says ‘Welcome home’ better than a well-maintained and style appropriate front fence, gate and entrance door. And, don’t forget the welcome mat.

Plant – Add street appeal with a well-maintained, lush, green lawn and some well-suited plants. A well-maintained lawn not only adds value to your property but can allow you to be the envy of your neighbours. A lawn also provides a fire break, a natural air conditioner and filter. Planting out the front gardens with some colour and scent will really add to the street appeal of your property.
