6 Tips to Boost Curb Appeal at Your New Home

Making your newly remodeled home stand out from the rest won’t be difficult, since it will be a brand new, customized house. However, that could all go to waste if you let your home’s curb appeal fall by the wayside.

Curb appeal, or lack thereof, can impact the way your home is perceived by guests and onlookers, and sets the stage for what’s inside. If your home’s exterior is lackluster, or appears to be neglected, it will lose its appeal – even if the interior is immaculate. Especially if you’re considering selling your home at some point, investing in a little curb appeal will go a long way.


Your landscaping doesn’t have to be lavish, but it does have to look neat and pulled together. Mowing the lawn, weeding, and doing all the landscaping maintenance needed for the yard to look presentable are all part of enhancing your home’s curb appeal.

Front Door

The front door, along with its hardware, says a lot about your home. Having an updated and well-maintained front door will contribute to the overall curb appeal of your home. Our design experts at the Distinctive Designs showroom can help you choose a front door for your newly remodeled home that will accentuate the rest of the home’s exterior.

Exterior Lighting

Exterior lighting provides safety and ambiance at night when the sun goes down. Whether it’s entryway lighting that illuminates your front door, landscape lighting that highlights your shrubs and trees, or pathway lighting that guides guests to your entryway, exterior lighting has a huge impact on curb appeal.

Power Washing

Power washing is an important maintenance task to keep the appearance of your home in tip top shape. Having a clean exterior will make your home shine from the outside, including the driveway, porch, siding, and windows.

Seasonal Décor

Sprucing up your home’s exterior with some seasonal décor is an inexpensive way to gain some more curb appeal. Adding a seasonal wreath, some seasonal plants to the front porch, pumpkins in the fall and holiday décor in the winter are all great ideas.

Potted Plants

Potted plants create a warm and welcoming home exterior. Place them on your front porch, at the foot of your pathways and walkways and on either side of your garage doors for a boost in curb appeal.
