Updating your Home for Added Street Appeal

In the real estate world, first impressions are crucial. The exterior of your home can set the tone for how someone views the rest of the property. The first thing people see when looking at a property from the street, is the exterior and the front yard. So, why does street appeal matter? Keep reading to find out!

Our team at Urban Scene Construction are experienced street appeal specialists. We understand how important it is to make your statement from the moment visitors first lay their eyes on your property. 

Whether you’re interested in selling or just want to improve your house for your enjoyment, our highly professional team can answer any of your questions and assist you to make sure your home is first impression ready.

So, let’s have a look at some ideas on how you can update your home for added street appeal and first impressions:

Add a Fresh Coat of Paint

The first thing you should bear in mind is the overall exterior of your house. Is it looking tired with chipped paint, or perhaps a little outdated? If yes, never underestimate the power of a fresh coat of paint – it can easily spruce things up and add an instant but effective refresh. Just choose a modern neutral color that is going to work to your advantage.

Invest in Landscaping

There’s absolutely no point ensuring the front of your house is spick and span if you are choosing to neglect the landscaping. You don’t want a job half done. By selecting the right plants and flowers for your garden (low maintenance options if gardening isn’t your cup of tea) you can improve the exterior tenfold. Plus, you can also highlight the entrance by using lighting (garden lamps) or by adding a footpath. And, of course, if you have a lawn, don’t forget to keep it nice and clean cut.

Refresh the Front Fence

Even before onlookers get a glance of your house, or your front yard, it’s the fence that they see. So, to improve the street appeal of your home, you must also consider the fencing. Try to make your fencing tie in architecturally with the rest of your home and ensure it provides the right level of security and transparency for your needs and lifestyle. 

Pop of Colour/ Entryway Design

The truth is, nothing is more inviting than a bold pop of colour at your entryway. Now, this doesn’t mean your all white house needs a fluorescent green front door. Depending on you and your style, you may like to add some plants by the entrance or if colour isn’t your thing, an elegant lamp might be. 

Don’t Forget the Windows

Finally, don’t forget the windows as they can provide a sneak peek of what’s inside. For that reason, make sure that your windows are always sparkly clean and shiny with dressings that make a statement and capture attention from the outside. 

The bottom line is if you’re considering your very own house renovation project or a simple home design improvement, don’t hesitate - call Urban Scene Construction today. We can answer questions you may have, and we can discuss your goals and our project process.
