How to boost your curb appeal

Curb appeal is how desirable the exterior of your home is, including everything from doors and windows, to even the guttering. In simple terms, curb appeal is how attractive a property looks to a potential buyer from the outside.

The outside of your home grants the first impression, therefore curb appeal can make the difference between a greater property value and a higher selling price or an offer below the asking price. With more online property sales than ever before, an image of the house’s exterior is the first thing potential buyers are going to see.

Here’s our top 5 ways to give your own home’s curb appeal a boost…

1. Make your door stand out

The front door is the entryway to the home, and so one of the easiest ways to boost your curb appeal is to have a stylish door that grabs attention. A bold colour that stands out against your home’s exterior will make a statement and draw focus to the area. As one of the first things people see, a new front door is a great investment to increase your curb appeal as it gives an impression of the quality and design of the property.

Other exterior doors of the property can also make a huge difference by tying into the theme and design of your home. Target Windows offer a range of door styles such as patio, composite, French, bi-fold, and glass panel designs, along with quality door installation services. With such a wide variety of glass panels and designs, and any colour you could dream of, we can provide a door to meet any street style.

2. Refresh your windows

Windows are the eyes to the home, letting in light and providing views. From an outside perspective, having clean and fresh windows is a huge factor in raising curb appeal. You can choose a colour window frame that either matches or has the same theme as the front door to tie the property’s aesthetics together.

Target Windows specialise in double glazing and offer modern designs as well as PVCu window frames. These stylish windows come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colours, to give you the look you want for your home.

3. Extend your home with a conservatory or orangery

An extension of your home produces huge curb appeal as it creates more space and adds an extra functional room to the property that can be designed to meet your needs.

A conservatory can be transformed into a desirable space such as an extended kitchen or a home office. Orangeries add a contemporary take on the traditional conservatory, as the brick pillars provide privacy, whereas the high roof allows light to flood into the home.

Target Windows offer glass roof and insulated double-glazed windows, which keep the conservatory cool in summer and warm in winter, to enjoy all year round. Our expert team can design and install your dream conservatory or orangery, including flooring, double-glazing, lighting, and plumbing.

4. Revitalise your property with refurbishments

Keeping your home looking fresh, rather than tired and worn, is the best way to maintain the overall appearance of a property and automatically give it higher curb appeal. If you have a conservatory that you are no longer using or is not meeting its function, transform it into a usable space to see property value soar.

Target Windows provide conservatory refurbishments with a wide range of roof colours and finishes to enhance the style of your home, which also aid with thermal, structural, and condensation issues to keep the property in good condition.

5. Keep on top with improved fascias and guttering

Any damage to the roof or guttering will be noticed by a potential buyer and is an issue that should be addressed as soon as possible to give the exterior of your home a solid, quality, and fresh appearance.

Target’s trained experts can replace fascias, guttering, soffits, and cladding, offering a range of colours as well as standard or decorative styles to match the theme of your home. These areas are hard to reach to repair and so we offer a virtually maintenance free Rain Water Goods Service. The high-quality products do not experience paint peeling or timber rot, keeping their appearance for years to come.
