 or other areas can really make a house pop.

                                                                 Hide unsightly features.

Even the most attractive homes have features that are better hidden. Lattice is a great way to keep trasFlowers landscaping h cans and air conditioning units out of sight. Or, if you prefer not adding another structure, you could plant a row of shrubs or trees instead.

For electrical boxes, water meters, and other fixtures attached to the house, adjusting the color to match your walls can act as camouflage. It won’t be completely out of sight, but it won’t draw unnecessary attention, either. And you won’t obstruct access.

                                                          Plant some flowers and plants.

This one is an obvious suggestion, but it’s still one of the most effective ways to add curb appeal.  Plants and flowers can add color, create a focal point in the yard, direct the eyes to the front of the house and even make use of spaces that may otherwise be wasted.

                                    Pressure wash decks, patios, and walkways.

If you don’t own a pressure washer, you can usually rent one from your local home improvement store. In just a few minutes you can spray away years of muck and grime buildup from wood, stone, and brick surfaces. You may be surprised by just how much of a difference you’ll see.
