Tips for Adding Curb Appeal to Your Home

July 19, 2022

Whether you’re in the process of selling your home or just looking to beautify your home’s exterior, there are many ways to add some curb appeal to your home. From adding colorful flowers to neatening up the yard, curb appeal can come in many different forms. 

At Jerry Enos Painting we are proud of the number one transformative method of adding some curb appeal to even the most worn looking homes…paint! 

The transformation is instantaneous and lasts for years. We may be a little biased but that is our suggestion of where to start. Get rid of the dated look, peeling paint, or faded areas by investing in an exterior phone painting project with our professional crew. 

Beyond a professional paint project, there are many other ways to make your home more inviting to passersby. Here is a quick list to get you started in beautifying your home’s exterior and boosting your curb appeal this summer. 


Add Color & Greenery 

One of the quickest ways to give your home a facelift is to add some greenery and pops of color. This can be done in the spring, summer, and fall by adding flowers in the front, along the walkways, or leading up to the entryway. A few potted plants and a green lawn can make a world of difference to the aesthetics of any home. 

Mailbox Makeover 

The details matter when boosting curb appeal. Replace your old mailbox and add a custom one that fits the style and color palette of your home. Make sure it has the house number on it for easy identification. 

Gutter Clean Out 

Nothing says unclean like a gutter that has weeds or moss growing out of it. Hire someone to clean your gutters and downspouts or do it yourself, but make sure they are fully functioning and not an eyesore.

Power Wash 

Second only to paint in transformative power. A power wash of your home’s exterior can make a home look clean and new especially if a year’s worth of debris, grime, mold, and mildew has been allowed to flourish on it. 

Add New Hardware 

The lightning, door handles, and house numbers are a perfect place to upgrade to create more curb appeal. Swapping out older light fixtures or putting on a new door knob and knocker are great ways to make an impact on the overall appearance of your home. 

Porch Decor or Seating 

If your entryway has a small porch, consider updating the decor for the season and placing some unique seating options that are visible from the street. Rockers are always a good option, but if you have the room and the know-how a porch swing is quintessential New England!
