Curb appeal can be the difference between selling your home for asking price or fielding better offers. Curb appeal can make you proud to walk through your neighborhood, and happy to pull in at the end of a long day. Curb appeal is well worth the time, money, and effort. Making a few updates to your driveway can beautify your home and increase home value. All it takes is a little concrete.
Decorative Concrete Ideas
Concrete is a versatile and affordable material for changing your home. Several of the following projects can be DIY, or you can call Hard Rock Concrete Coatings for a professional treatment in half the time.
Concrete planters make the perfect weekend DIY project. You can build them whatever size and shape you like. Pour mixed concrete into molds and allow to set. Then fill with dirt and any flowers or plants that you’d like to display. Line them along your driveway for a custom finish.
Adding pavers from your driveway to your front door, side doors, backyard, mailbox, or other points of your property can turn your yard into a destination or magazine spread. You can buy pre-made pavers, cast your own, or hire professionals to make custom pavers for your home.
A popular option is to coat your driveway in fresh concrete and then stamp it with a pattern, texture, or design. Brick, stone, patterns, and more can be used to give your driveway a custom and high-end look for a fraction of the cost.
The fastest way to make your driveway stand out in your neighborhood is to change the color and finish of your driveway. Hard Rock Concrete Coatings can use specialized concrete stains to give your driveway the look of wood, brick, metal, or just a deep tone of any color you choose.
If you simply want to edge your existing driveway, you can add stripes of fresh concrete to each side. Emphasize them with stamps, inlay, or staining. Just a simple edge of concrete can make your home look more custom and expensive, while adding a nice modern touch.
Guardian Statues & Columns
Adding a masonry column, statue, or small tower at the edges of your driveway maximizes curb appeal. Flank the sides of your driveway with a brick column or statue, add your house numbers, or even your mailbox. The effect is major, but it might only take a day or two.
When you are ready to add curb appeal and home value to your property, take a look at the forgotten area of your driveway. A few small updates can make a big difference. Call Hard Rock Concrete Coatings today for the professional touch.
