Improving Your Home’s Curb Appeal

6 Ways to Improve Chattanooga Home’s Curb Appeal

Does your home need a newer, fresher look to improve its curb appeal? Whether you are wanting to sell your Chattanooga house or update it, here are 6 ways you can impress your neighbors and prospective buyers.

#1. Greenery is Scenery

Add flowers and plants to your front yard, especially beside the porch and near the front door. If you do not want to spend too much money, then hang a beautiful plant or two on the porch. This will go a long way to making your home pop with some greenery.

#2. Green Lawn is Good Lawn

A healthy lawn is noticed quickly and can say a lot about your home. Routinely water and mow your lawn to keep the green, neat appearance. Additionally, pull the weeds and rake the leaves as necessary. If this is too much work, consider implanting artificial grass.

#3. Bold Door, Front Door

Do something really special with your front door. Paint it a unique color that makes it stand out from the rest of the house. I recommend using lighter colors so try not to go too dark.

Consider installing the app Front Door Paint. This app will allow you to picture your new front door before actually making the transformation.

#4. Mailbox, Fun Box

If your mailbox has seen better days, it is time to replace it with a more stylish one. Search online or go to several stores in person to get some ideas. If buying a new mailbox is not in the budget, then I recommend painting it and making sure the numbers are in decent condition.

#5. Overlooked House Numbers

Many of us can’t recall what our house numbers look like because we see it so often our brain does not fully process it. If you need to upgrade your house numbers, then don’t wait. In case of an emergency, you want the police or firefighters to find your home quickly. Taking off the old numbers and replacing them with the new ones shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, ask someone for help.

#6. Power of A Good Wash

That is right, power wash! What is more satisfying than that? You can instantly remove dirt from your driveway, porch, and sidings of the house. Now that’s a great feeling. If you don’t own a power washer, which many don’t, then consider borrowing a neighbor’s or renting it from a store.


After completing these 6 tasks, your home’s curb appeal will drastically improve in the Greater Chattanooga market. So, what are you waiting for?
