How to turn your home into the envy of your neighborhood

Do you dream of having the home that everyone looks at with envy? If so, you will want to take a closer look at these simple tips that will help you learn how to turn your home into the envy of your neighborhood.

Tip #1: Consider Curb Appeal

More than likely, many of your neighbors will never even step foot in your home. Therefore, in order to turn your home into the envy of your neighborhood, you should first focus on making it look great on the outside. This means making certain the house has a fresh coat of paint or that the siding is kept clean. Power washing the siding each year will keep it looking fresh and clean.

Landscaping is also an essential part of curb appeal. Be certain to add flowers and bushes to your yard and keep it well-maintained. Similarly, you should keep your yard clutter free. If you don’t want to do it yourself, hire landscaping contractors to do it for you.

Tip #2: Add Outdoor Living Space

For those neighbors that do stop by, they may not actually come into your house. At the same time, they may make it into your backyard. So, take time to create an attractive outdoor living space in your yard that will draw their envy. A simple brick patio and sitting area can be enough to make them envy your home, but adding a perennial garden or even a rock garden will really help spruce up the area. Good deck contractors or patio contractors can help you to transform your backyard.

Tip #3: Create a Grand Entryway

In order to make a great impression on your neighbors and anyone that visits your home, you should also create a grand entryway. This way, your neighbors will get the impression that your house has much more to offer when they come knocking at your door. Your entryway should be bright and welcoming. Try to find ways to allow natural light into your entryway. If you can’t, make certain there is plenty of lighting in the entryway and that it is clutter free.
