Making Your Home the Talk of the Town

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ImproveTips

Whether or not we want to admit it, we all want our home to look its best and be the envy of the neighborhood. But do you think that keeping up with the Joneses comes with a big price tag? Think again. With a little elbow grease and creativity, your property can be the talk of the town.

Making a good first impression

Updating outdoor lighting is a great first step to achieving the best-looking house on the block. Chances are your exterior porch lights may be rusty or faded. Bring new life to your lighting with a single can of spray paint. New Krylon Dual Paint and Primer is a one-step solution to easily transform any light fixture.

Still looking for more illumination? Adding decorative lanterns to walk-ways or porches is an easy and inexpensive way to add charm and light.

Quick color

The front door is a focal point of your home, so be sure that your doors and shutters are a vivid shade. If yours have been dulled by years of sun and weather, it’s time to update with paint. For metal doors and shutters, you can use a variety of spray or bucket paints in your favorite hue. However, for plastic shutters, Krylon Fusion for Plastic is the ideal choice since it bonds to plastic without the need for priming or sanding.

A tidy and neat yard

A well-manicured lawn is important to boosting your curb appeal. Simple one-weekend tasks like edging, trimming bushes and removing unsightly weeds can make a huge difference without a lot of work or cost.
