4 Easy Big Impact Curb Appeal Ideas for Your WDC Home

If you’re planning to list your WDC home this spring, one important factor to remember is your property’s curb appeal. First impressions make lasting impressions. While your listing photos will bring initial interest to your home, potential buyers will be drawn in ready and excited to see more if you have impactful curb appeal. Go beyond a spring cleaning of your exterior and landscaping and make a positive impression to remember with the following big-impact curb appeal ideas.

While there are numerous ways to give your home added curb appeal, one easy way is with window boxes. Most buyers enjoy seeing added details beyond a well-manicured lawn. A group of lovely, vibrant plants and flowers makes quite a welcoming impact to potential homebuyers. Flower boxes are easy to add to your home, whether on a window frame or along a porch. If you don’t have much space, don’t worry, hanging baskets and potted plants can readily be incorporated for a grand statement along the front of your home.

Paint the front door. Once you have wowed a potential buyer with your plants and flowers, keep the momentum going with a freshly painted front door! It’s important to take into account the overall color scheme of your home, but don’t be afraid to kick it up a notch with a bold or even brighter shade to really bring your entrance together. If in doubt, stick with black for a bold choice which goes with everything. Add in a new door handle, an ornamental door knocker and unique house numbers next to your door to finish the look. A successful home sale can often be found in the details.

In today’s retail market, it is easy to find a porch swing that will compliment your home. Installing a Porch Swing will establish a welcoming atmosphere. This will help potential homebuyers feel invited to come and take a closer look. Putting viewers at ease will help them fall in love with your charming home. Having a swing is a timeless and relatively effortless way to say “relax here” to all who see your home. Is your porch too small or do you have a stoop instead? Place a decorative garden table and chairs nearby for the same results.

Create a “Walkway of Welcome”. A textured walkway of varied stones or bricks can add an additional element of architectural drama to draw potential buyers to your front door. A slightly curved pathway with some well-placed flowerbeds, garden art and lighting, is not only welcoming but gives a sense of seclusion and welcoming privacy to a potential buyer. Take a good look at your lawn and see which style makes the most sense without becoming overwhelming. Other walkway options include gravel paths lined with a flagstone boarder, stepping stones, and terra cotta tiles. If you are not sure, don’t hesitate to reach out to a professional for guidance and inspiration.
