Even though the front door mat says “Welcome,” nothing is more inviting than a well kept front yard, neatly trimmed bushes, and dashes of color from hanging baskets or flower pots. This is often referred to as curb appeal, but we call it being “Street Smart.”
Street Smart encompasses the whole front of the house. A pop of color on the front door, a well-edged front walkway, and clean siding free of chipping paint, being Street Smart will make your home the envy of the neighborhood.
All Renew Creations Street Smart renovations are designed with your house – and neighborhood – in mind. Placing a large bush in front of a gorgeous bay window not only limits natural light coming into the house, it hides a point of architectural interest. We take everything into account when giving the front of your home a facelift.
Street Smart Renovation can include:
- Exterior home design
- Front Porch
- Exterior Window Treatments
- Front Door
Landscaping is much more than having a green lawn and trimming the hedge. Planting trees or shrubs that won’t compete with each other, installing an automated sprinkler system to keep things green (or red or yellow) throughout the growing season, and well-placed mulch that keeps weeds at bay, a well planned yard will help keep maintenance to a minimum.
Exterior home design
Exterior home design takes almost everything else into account. Certainly, remodeling the architecture of your home can bring a dramatic change, but there are other ways to update the front of the home. Painting the home or changing out the siding is a quick way to update the home, but you could also add a stone veneer along the base of the house to add interest.
Window treatments bring contrast to the exterior and a new front door that compliments the other changes completes the picture.
Even with these changes, a cracked, uneven driveway or weed-infested front walkway will catch the attention of those passing by. Instead of endless patching, repaving a driveway or walkway can change the look of your home immediately.
Being Street Smart not only helps you feel better about your home, but can help when the time comes to sell. Well-appointed landscaping, thoughtful home exterior updates, and an overall coherent design will make your home the most welcoming home on the block.
