Home Walkway with Solar LightsDo you want to update the exterior of your home and make it the most appealing house on the block? Whether you’re looking to sell or for more enjoyment in your home, making exterior improvements will help improve its curb appeal.

Here are 5 ways, including exterior shades, to make your home the beauty on the block.

1. Lighting

Your home should have fantastic curb appeal both night and day. Start with lighting near your front door by choosing a new wall sconce to light your house numbers. Add lights along the edge of your pathway to give your visitors a safe passage to your front door. Highlight your home and your tall landscaping with up-lights.

2. Exterior finishes

Give your home a brand-new look by upgrading external finishes. Cover tired brick with a stone veneer. Cover wood with stucco in a beautiful color. Replace a utilitarian steel door with a wooden masterpiece. Even replacing your vinyl siding with one made from cement will spruce up your home.

3. Pathways

Your family and guests approach your front door and walk through your yard via pathways. Adding a unique pathway will give your home and landscape a definite boost in curb appeal. It’s a great place to start if you are considering upgrading your landscape.

4. Landscaping

Does your home's landscape have a cohesive plan that includes your pathways, plants and flowers? If not, consider hiring someone to make such a plan. It will help you create a coordinated landscape that will improve your home's curb appeal. Add plants that thrive in a desert climate to reduce watering and give your home a Southwest feel.
