RISMEDIA, March 24, 2010—Simple and inexpensive updates can add maximum appeal to your home and help catch the eye of prospective buyers.
Use welcoming colors. Paint columns, eaves and shutters a warm brown and brighten the front door with a deep blue paint.
Pair of Benches
Two black aluminum benches placed on each side of the door provide a comfortable spot to sit and visit.
Updated numbers placed above the door add to an entry’s traditional appeal and complement the color scheme.
A Lighted Path
Energy-efficient solar lights lead visitors to the front door and illuminate the path after dark. Shrubs and potted plants make the home more inviting.
A pair of traditional bronze outdoor lanterns flank the door and provide extra light when the busy family arrives home at night.
Treated pine was used to box the existing columns and create a more substantial look, fitting the scale and style of the home.
