A walkway can be defined as a passageway or path that leads to different sections making it easier to maneuver and access a designated area or space. Adding a walkway to your home is a great investment. Along with being affordable, durable, versatile, and low maintenance, there are many other benefits linked to residential walkways, including increased curb appeal, safety, and property value of your home. Listed below are three benefits linked to having a residential walkway.
Curb Appeal and Landscape Design
Adding a walkway to your home helps enhance its curb appeal and landscape design, making your home appear more attractive. A walkway allows you to distinguish the various areas of your home’s exterior, making it more functional, organized, accessible, and safer. When choosing a walkway for your home, it’s recommended that you select a style or color that complements your home’s aesthetic, especially considering that the walkway is typically one of the first things seen outside of your home by guests before they reach the front door.
Along with curb appeal, one of the most valuable benefits of having a residential walkway is safety. Walkways create a safer environment for your home’s exterior allowing homeowners and their occupants to easily access your home’s interior from the outside without having to maneuver through unsafe or unstable surfaces. Walking on a designated walkway is much easier, more convenient, and safe than walking on surfaces such as grass, rock, gravel, and dirt, to name a few. Walkways are especially beneficial if you have children, pets, the elderly, or injured individuals who frequently visit or live in your home.
Like most external features such as fences, decks, porches, patios, and driveways, adding a walkway to your home can increase its property value significantly by $5,000 to $10,000. This is ideal for homeowners who plan to sell their property in the future, making their home a more appealing choice to potential buyers ensuring that they get the best possible price on the market.
