Kerb Appeal: What is it? How to get it with Elglaze

‘Kerb appeal’. That’s the term estate agents use to describe a property that has instant appeal to buyers. But it also includes your home standing out from its neighbours. If you looking for ways to create a stand-out property whether you’re staying for the long term or thinking of selling – Elglaze have some tips for turning your home into a real traffic-stopper. 

Of course, if you are thinking of undertaking any kind of home improvement project, selling your property may be the furthest thing from your mind. However, you want to ensure that any work you do embark on, proves to be a worthy investment in the long term – whether you stay put or sell.

Most estate agents will tell you that often buyers decide whether to buy your home or not the moment they pull up outside of it. ‘Kerb appeal’ however goes further than just creating a great first impression. Most of us want our homes to stand out from those of our neighbours. It’s got nothing to do with ‘Keeping up with the Joneses’ but more about giving our home individuality and style. This can be especially important when the homes that surround ours are of a similar era and design. It’s natural we want our home to be special – after all, it’s our home and the biggest investment we will ever make.

Creating every day ‘kerb appeal’ and enhancing our home so that it stands out from those around it, needn’t be difficult or expensive however. Adding a beautiful and eye catching front door can be a simple and cost-effective way to make your home stand out from those of your neighbours. New front doors offer an instant ‘face lift’ for your home and the right front door acts as an introduction to visitors and perhaps even buyers someday, hinting at what lies within. You can totally change the personality of your home by adding the right front door. From period charm to sleek, contemporary looks, Elglaze doors won’t fade or discolour. Virtually maintenance and draught free, our doors offer soundproofing and a high level of security. They come in a wide range of styles, designs and colours for instant ‘kerb appeal’ that enhances your home’s individual look. You can view our range of doors here:

Windows are the other important consideration and again, it’s really worth taking some time to consider all the options available when it comes to aesthetic appeal and enhancing the character of your home. Did you know that installing the wrong kind of windows can actually turn out to be a negative investment as it can cause the value of your property to fall rather than adding value? From modern flush casement to traditional sash windows, Elglaze have the perfect window to compliment your home. The Elglaze team are also available to help you make the right choice when it comes to colour, finish and style of window to ensure they coordinate perfectly with your home’s appearance. You can view just a small range of available colours and finishes here and our full range can be viewed on request.

There’s nothing like make your home stand out for all the right reasons – even if selling it is the last thing on your mind. Talk to us.
