Make Your Home More Appealing From the Outside

Even in our hot housing market, if you’re looking to sell, it’s always smart to invest a little cash into something that could reap a higher sales price. Improving your home’s curb appeal might be one way to do that. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, we’ve got a few ideas for how you can improve the look of your home from the outside without breaking the bank. Read on to learn more!

The Front Entryway

Often, the front door is the exterior’s main focal point, so making sure your front door shines could help give your home a boost. Consider a brand-new door, or add a fresh coat of paint to your current door. Or even just change out the handle for an exciting new twist. A pretty welcome mat and a lovely wreath can add charm and class to the look.

Think About Your Functional Features

Your mailbox and box numbers can date or update your home. Consider changing them out. Add or replace flower boxes or planters, and be sure that any garden areas (including bushes, trees, and other plants) are trimmed, weeded, and cared for. Finally, think about adding some outdoor furniture as an inviting way to let people know they can enjoy your home.

Change or Add Lighting

New or improved lighting and light fixtures can do wonders for the overall look of your home. Update or upgrade your porch light or garage light fixtures and see the difference it makes. Also consider landscape lighting such as solar-powered walkway lights or up-lit soft spotlights to highlight your trees. Updating these features can add a level of safety while literally brightening the nighttime look of the house.

Consistency at the Window

Although different rooms might call for different window treatments due to different needs in each space, that can sometimes give a jumbled look from the outside. Hunter Douglas has solved this issue by offering several different window treatments that have a common backing (either white or neutral) so that they look the same from the outside no matter what they look like inside. Among the options with that backing are:

  • Duette® Honeycomb Shades
  • Silhouette® Window Shadings
  • Pirouette® Window Shadings
  • Vignette® Modern Roman Shades
  • Provenance® Woven Wood Shades With Liner
