Eye Catching Curb Appeal

Eye Catching Curb Appeal

April 23, 2012 | Barbara's Blog



 Curb Appeal makes an ordinary home a “Home Sweet Home.”


This design brings the inside out by mounting a large framed print on the left side of the porch and placing decorative lamps on the tables.

The flowers, which are planted as well as potted at the base of the steps, seem to highlight the columns which frame the entryway.

One of my favorite things to do is take a ride through some of the more classic neighborhoods in my community.  Each home is different from the rest, not like those that seem to mirror one another. As I make my way, I always find myself slowing down in front of the homes that have an eye-catching appeal. Every property goes through stages, particularly if it has been sold and resold. New owners may want a new look, achieved with a fresh coat of paint and an investment in landscape design.  Shrubs and trees continue to grow each year. Unless they are pruned regularly, they will take away from the architectural elements of a homes exterior. A well landscaped property attracts the attention of everyone who drives by.  Layers of stone features, manicured greenery, ground level shrubbery, and colorful blooms add to a homes curb appeal and offer a visual frame for the home. One must not forget, however, the path to the entryway, the porch, shutters, hardware, and the front door.  Pressure washing the walkway and steps will make them look like new. Freshly painted shutters, railings, columns, trim and door will also add to the home’s appearance. If the outside appearance is eye-catching, might the interior be just as intriguing? The features from the curb to the door make all the difference. Setting the stage outside is an important step to bringing visitors to your front door and right across the threshold.  

Curb appeal is an important element to consider in today’s market. It is what determines whether or not a visitor will drive on by, or drive on in for a closer look.  Once inside, your home will have an added advantage with professional staging touches by our expert Barbara Heil-Sonneck.
