25 ways to get more Curb Appeal…

It is just beautiful here today… The sun is shining and I am painting!

Our outdoor projects are well underway and I can’t wait to share them with you.

I gave a tease a few weeks back, here is the link if you missed it.

I spent some time recently standing in front of the house assessing our curb appeal.  


Having an attractive view from the road is so important not only for resale but for maximizing your homes potential for your own enjoyment!

Here are some simple ideas…

Play to your homes strengths… If you have a lovely curved lane then add other curves to echo that feature like a curved pathway leading to the front door or round planters at the entrance.

Color block… accent and play up the wonderful colour in your trim work or door paint.

Add annuals that are in the same color family… pillows on the front porch furniture also in those same tones… in other words, repeat the theme.


Add a decorative house number for interest and whimsy.

Shutters, window boxes, tended lawns and well kept gardens all go a long way to adding curb appeal.

I put together a clipboard  over on Hometalk with some fantastic projects for adding curb appeal.
