Spring is a time of joy and renewal, spring is in the air! It’s a feeling that conjures up memories of Tom Jones’ 1979 hit “Love is in the Air.” It just makes you want to get up and dance – and while you’re getting your groove on – it’s also time to get outside and boost the curb appeal of your home.
Freshening up the curb appeal of a home is one of the best ways to impress prospective buyers, but it also provides a richness and personalized value to you, the homeowner, in maximizing your yard all summer long.
There are the major investments in home improvements for increasing home value – like a new roof, siding or eavestroughing – that you can get from the professionals at Century Roofing Limited, and as your neighbours we’ll be here when you are ready to make those changes. Till then, here are a few friendly tips to ‘spring makeover’ for your Calgary home.
Cleaning up your yard – mowing the lawn, trimming bushes, sweeping the steps – hugely increases curb appeal without costing a thing. You can increase the benefits by making it a family activity – share the excitement by letting young children choose an annual for planting. Not only will you enjoy quality time with your children but you’ll provide them the opportunity to learn about plants and the rewards of a job well done as they enjoy the flower they planted all summer long.
Clean windows will give you a bright view of your handiwork. You can also add style to your windows with window boxes filled with bright flowers.
If you have a patio or backyard space, transform it into a beautiful and relaxing outdoor haven. Finding tasteful furniture and adding a couple of outdoor décor items, can easily make this happen. Add a new gravel path to make it easier to get around, or if you already have a nice walkway to your home, line it with some solar path lamps.
The front door is a huge focal point for homes and a good way to add some pizzazz. Painting doors, shutters, trim, or the porch in a fun and coordinating colour makes your home distinctively yours. Another simple but effective idea is to invest in good quality address lettering.
