3 projects to boost your home’s curb appeal

by | Sep 5, 2023 | Home and Living

No matter what your home looks like indoors, the exterior provides an important first impression.

To leave your neighbours green with envy and pique the interest of potential buyers, here are three eye-catching exterior upgrades you can do.

  • Incorporate lighting into your outdoor design. From candles and string lights to a firepit table and solar light pathways, a little illumination can completely change the look and feel of an outdoor space without breaking the bank.
  • Update the railings around your home. They’re an important safety feature and a highly visible part of your property. Try mixing materials and choosing natural colours for a fresh modern look or restore their original, historical style to create an instant home facelift.
  • Upgrade your porch or deck to a covetable outdoor room. Consider building with high-performance composite materials. Unlike wood, composite decking such as Trex Transcend Lineage resists fading, staining, scratching and mould, and only needs an occasional soap-and-water cleaning to stay looking like new for decades.
