Tips for Creating Curb Appeal at Your New Home

Fri, 27 Jan 2012 by Polycorp

The outside of your home is the first impression others will make about your home. When your home has great curb appeal it shows that you take pride in the appearance of your home and community. Polycorp suggests these tips for creating great curb appeal for your new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The front door and your porch are the focal point of your home and are a prelude to what’s inside. Paint your front door a bright color, repaint your columns if they need touching up and polish your doorknobs. Consider adding a wreath, a chair or two and plants to your porch for décor.

Perform routine maintenance on your home. Remove dirt and debris from your gutters, sweep your porch, wash your windows inside and outside and shovel your driveway after it snows to keep your new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia looking its best.

In summertime, keeping weeds out of your lawn and edging sidewalks and planting beds will keep your home looking well kept.  Fertilizing the lawn is a great way to keep your lawn super green and weed-free.  Consider choosing plantings with flowers that complement the door colour.  Try to choose plants that mature at different times so that you’ll have a splash of colour throughout the growing season.  Plant flowers in pots, planters or window boxes  - it’s an easy way to grow beautiful healthy flowers without too much work.  Pots can dry out quickly so make sure they have plenty of water and don’t forget the fertilizer.    

Your backyard is also essential to your curb appeal and should be welcoming for you and your guests. Maintain a manicured lawn, add sculptures, birdfeeders, fountains, plants and other décor to spruce up the look of your backyard.

Hopefully by following these tips to create curb appeal you’ll be able to enhance your new home in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
