Curb appeal starts at the front door with Victorian and Craftsman style door knockers, doorbell buttons with copper accented chimes, and kickplates. Coordinating mailsolts, mailboxes and decorative scroll and Arts & Crafts house numbers extend a warm welcome.
Creating Curb Appeal
The smart selection of decorative hardware for a home's front door and porch areas offers an economical way to significantly add curb appeal while serving a variety of necessary functions. Adding curb appeal hardware items like unique house numbers, stylish doorbell buttons, or wall mount mailboxes are relatively simple and inexpensive home renovation projects. Most of these exterior hardware products can be installed by the homeowner using simple tools that they likely already own. Selecting curb appeal hardware is a matter of home owner preferences. However, ensuring that the exterior hardware elements complement one another as well as the style of the home is a generally recommended selection criterion. Avoid a mismatch of finishes by coordinating these combination pieces in the same finish. Choice of style and finish should be harmonious to the home's architectural style. For example, copper and bronze hardware works well in Arts & Crafts or rustic-themed homes while brass has a traditional appeal that is especially popular in Victorian settings. For a contemporary setting, consider the sophistication of brushed nickel or chrome hardware. Coordinating these visual elements will provide a clean look and make a significant difference in the appearance of your property.
