It doesn’t matter whether you live in a modest two bed condo or whether you are the proud owner of a Victorian villa, the chances are that you want it to turn heads for all the right reasons. The overgrown lawn, overflowing bins and weed laden driveway simply won’t cut it. You need to head outdoors and pay as much attention to the exterior facade of your home as you do to the glorious interior of your pad. While you may spend most of your time indoors so you enjoy concentrating on your interior decor, you can’t neglect your exterior. Take a look at how you can enhance the curb appeal of your home.
The front door and windows of your pad say a lot about your personality and the style of your home. You could opt for the traditional black wooden front door or opt for a more modern composite. These doors are well made and super secure meaning that your family can feel safe indoors. They come in all sorts of sizes, and colors from duck egg blue to parrot red. If you fancy a spy hole or a piece of super reinforced stained glass to add a touch of flair, you can have it customized to your taste.
Your windows also need care. If the facias are cracked and the seals are broken, you may need to hire a team of window installers to whip in some new glazing. This can uplift the facade of your dwelling no end. Dress the windows with some shutters or drapery and you can create a warm and welcoming exterior.
If you are lucky enough to have a little patch of greenery at the front of your home, you can exploit this to make your home look outstanding. Mow the lawn regularly and plant some colorful flowers like rose bushes and hydrangeas in your borders. Make a feature of a couple of Japanese acres and enjoy introducing scented foliage to your garden. Even if you don’t have much garden space, you can plant some pots with pansies and marigolds, put up some hanging baskets or place a couple of bay trees outside your front door. A splash of well coiffed greenery can make people take a look at your home and see it in a more positive light.
Sometimes, our driveways look a little tired. Perhaps you have moss in the joins of your paving, you have some loose bricks in a wall, or the brick driveway is dirty. Whip out your power washer and lift the layers of dirt from your driveway. Do some weeding and consider hiding your bins from view. By building or buying a small shelter, you can keep them out of the sightline of passersby.
You want your home to exude warmth and neatness. It is the untidiness of an exterior that can make a home look drab, tired and unwelcoming. Follow this guide and ensure that the curb appeal of your home is enhanced.
