How to Freshen Up Your Home's Curb Appeal for Spring

Spring is right around the corner! With the promise of warmer weather and sunnier days, many homeowners have begun to plan their renovations and weekend projects that will help to elevate their homes.

While some may enjoy a huge renovation project, transforming your home to look refreshed and revitalized can actually be quite simple. Especially if you’re only focusing on updating your home’s curb appeal! So, whether you’re in the mood to spring-clean, or are preparing to sell your home, here are our tips and tricks to help you freshen up your curb appeal this Spring.

Revitalize Your Lawn

After all the snow we’ve had this year in the Greater Toronto Area, it’s time to give your lawn a little TLC. Start by plucking any dead flowers, trimming the bushes, and getting rid of any leaves, twigs, or debris that may have fallen. Once you have a clean slate, the rest is easy!

Give your lawn a mow, water the grass, and lay down some sod if necessary to give your front lawn that fresh look. But you may not want to stop there! To take it even further, try planting some flowers and adding an edge to your flower bed with stones, bricks, or rocks. You’ll be surprised by what an afternoon and a trip to your local Home Depot or Rona can do!

Give Everything a Quick Wash

We all know the damage that salt and ice melt can do to our driveways and home exterior. Clean up the outside with a quick powerwash of the driveway, garage door, and sidings to help make your home glisten and gleam, looking pristine. You may also want to give your doors and windows a good wash during this time as well.

A Little Paint Goes a Long Way!

With all the snow and ice the exterior of our homes have encountered, it's normal to notice a few chips in the paint from the Winter season. Be sure to give the exterior of your home a quick and efficient overview to see if the garage door or siding of your home needs a new coat of paint. Not only will this elevate the look of your home, but it will prevent more of the paint from chipping off during the upcoming seasons, saving you time in the long run.

Tend to Any Items that Need Fixing

Since you’re already in the cleaning vibe, now’s the perfect time to fix or update any items that need tending to. This can range from installing new garage doors to replacing your old mailbox, to adding in new address numbers to make your home more chic and put together.

But don’t think you need to go above and beyond here! Small fixes and updates will easily do the trick, and help improve the look of your home.

Add a Personalized Touch

Better weather allows for fun and unique touches to be added to the exterior of your home. This can be elevated exterior lighting, a new doormat, a bright coloured door, some potted plants, or a rocking chair to help make your home more “you.” Plus, if you’re able to find items that match the colour scheme of your home, it will make everything more appealing to the eye. Perfect if you’re looking to sell!

After the harsh winter we’ve had, our homes definitely deserve some love! With a little elbow grease, some help from the family, and a weekend set aside, you’ll have your home looking fresh, new, and welcoming in no time. If you’re working on your home because you’re getting ready to sell, be sure to check out our home seller guide for some more tips and tricks that will help get you top dollar! Happy Spring cleaning.
