Renovation Pro Tip #2: Curb Appeal

CURB APPEAL

Look for the least attractive house in a beautiful neighbourhood because there is often potential simply being hidden by an ugly exterior!

Take a look at the exterior renovations we made to 2 North Nanaimo homes. By cleaning up the landscaping and swapping out key design elements you can significantly increase the value of a property.


1. 419 Sealion Place · The original home was hiding behind overgrown trees and plants, and what you could see of the exterior looked neglected. We worked with a landscape architect to make major modifications to this yard, and look what it did for the curb appeal!


We gave this house a fresh coat of paint, upgraded to energy-efficient windows, incorporated wood shingles at the peaks of the exterior to create dimension, replaced the deck railing with glass panels to bring more light into the home, added slate tile to frame in the garage and entranceway replaced the front door, repaved the driveway,

and we also added a patio in the front yard.


 


2. 5338 Fillinger Crescent · This is the featured home in our PRO TIP last week! The exterior of the Fillinger house was drab and uninspiring. We changed the colour of the exterior to bring it up to date; upgraded to energy-efficient windows; replaced the lackluster front entrance with a glass panel door and a sidelight to bring more natural light into the home; and we added some nice shrubs and flowering plants to add a pop of colour in the front yard.
