How to increase your curb appeal

At Select Garage Doors, we know the difference a new garage door can make to a home, we’ve seen it countless times, and we all know that when it comes to your home, first impressions count.

So whether you’re a homeowner wanting to improve the exterior of your home, or you’re looking to sell and need to increase your curb appeal, a garage door is something that certainly shouldn’t be overlooked.

After all, however beautiful your home, if your garage has an old, shabby looking rusting door that will be what sticks in people’s minds when they drive away.

We’d like to think it’s clear that we’re pretty well equipped to advise you on a new garage door for your home – after all, we do make bespoke garage doors every day in our UK factory – so we thought we’d go that extra mile and ask around our team so we could bring you:


Our top tips to increase your home’s outer beauty

  1. Garden maintenance – If your front lawn is overgrown, wild or full of weeds, no-one is going to notice the house. You don’t have to turn your garden into something from Chelsea flower show, just remove weeds, trim back overgrown hedges or trees and mow the lawn.
  2. Paintwork – Touch up peeling, uneven or faded paintwork around doors, windows and fences. A lick of paint can make a world of difference and makes everything look cleaner, newer and well looked after.
  3. De-clutter – Moving the bins to the back of the house, putting away the kid’s garden games and removing clutter from your windowsills help to remove distractions and means the first impression is one of a clean, tidy and well-looked after home.

There’s, of course, lots more you can do to increase your home’s attractiveness – many coming at a cost – but a decluttered exterior, with a neat garden and fresh paintwork, coupled with a modern and stylish garage door, should be all you need to freshen up the exterior of your home and make a real improvement in your curb appeal!
