Are you thinking about selling your home? Or maybe you just want it to look more attractive to your visitors. No matter what the reason, curb appeal is a great quality to invest in, and at Mr. Pavement, we can help you make your home irresistible to passers-by. Here are some ways you can spruce up your exterior:
If you don’t have any flowers planted, they can be a great way to add a pop of color. Pick out flower colors that complement the exterior of your home and place them strategically – for example: along your driveway or walkway or on your front stoop. You can also add flower boxes to your windows to add depth and design to an otherwise flat facade.
Does your home look worn and tired? Or maybe it just doesn’t stand out from the rest of the homes on your street. In order to spruce it up, try giving it a fresh coat of paint. Choose a color that will not only make your house pop, but will be inviting to your visitors.
If you’re looking for curb appeal, what better way to achieve it than to highlight the best aspects of your home? With outdoor lighting, you can focus on the beautiful colors, landscaping, and/or design of your home and your front yard. You can also use outdoor lighting to guide your guests down a walkway and up to your front door.
Whether it’s made of brick, concrete, or even simple stepping stones, a walkway can be a charming way to invite your guests into your home. Try creating a walkway from your driveway to your front door, or from the front of your home around to the back. You can even have a walkway to a garden or a fountain to add an element of design.

Shutters tend to make a home look complete. If you don’t already have shutters, look for a size, shape, and design that complements your windows and the overall style of your home. Then, paint them the perfect color to complete the look.
Next to your home itself, landscaping is the most important part of curb appeal and is what people will notice when they arrive at your home. Choose trees, bushes, and shrubs that work well with the size of your yard and the style of your home. Also, choose trees that will balance out the design of your property once they grow taller. After your landscaping is complete, be sure to trim your plants so that they look neat and clean.
