Everything is starting to look so nice this time a year. There is plenty of rain to keep our grass green and our gardens growing. All signs of winter have passed, beauty is returning and Mother Nature is doing her thing. But there are just some things that just can't renew themselves, and need attention after a long hard winter wrath. Front doors, Mail boxes, exterior light fixtures, Door handles and house numbers. All these items are equally important as the natural beauty that surrounds them, but many times get neglected.
One of the easiest ways to create instant curb appeal this time a year is to add BLACK. Some of you may be thinking "black is so boring and harsh", but on the contrary, BLACK is the perfect colour to make all the other colours on your exterior... POP!
Add black mulch to your gardens to make the greenery pop and the flowers brilliant.

Painting your front door is always a must when preparing to sell your home. But all too many forget to change out or refresh the Door hardware and that rusty old mailbox. Look for sales at big box stores or buy a can of Black metal spray paint, preferably mat finish. Refresh or replace House numbers to make your property visible from the road, match the mail box and even try painting your exterior lights before replacing them. Black urns and window boxes filled with colourful flowers or stately greenery always add that WOW factor that people gravitate to. When in doubt, paint your front door Black- You really cant go wrong!
