Do you own a home that you love and adore but whose exterior doesn’t exactly exude the beauty and interest you’ve achieved indoors? People often put a lot of work and thought into designing the home of their dreams when it comes to the inside, but what about kerb appeal? Perhaps you’re ready to make some changes and improvements but don’t know where to begin and how to get the most impact.
With that said here are five ways you can spruce up the exterior of your home.
Cut Back and Prune All Greenery
Here’s a tip that won’t cost you a thing, yet provides huge impact. Cutting back and pruning all overgrown greenery that has lost its shape and is encroaching on areas it shouldn’t makes the exterior look neat and cared for. That alone gives a massive boost to kerb appeal.
Use Planters for Pops of Colour and Interest
If it’s interest that your garden is lacking, planters can fill the void. You can choose brightly coloured flowers, even mixing and matching different species and colours in each pop. Just be sure to place the planters in an area where they aren’t just noticeable but also get ample sunlight. To ensure they stay looking beautiful, follow a regular watering and fertilising/feeding schedule.
Paint Your Front Door an Unexpected Colour
Looking for a DIY job you can do yourself with just a little bit of effort? If you have a timber door, painting your front door is an easy weekend project for those even somewhat handy. When choosing a colour don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and choose a bold unexpected colour. Rather than copying what the neighbours have, choose a stylish front door colour such as red, pink, green, blue, lilac, or orange.
To transform the door completely, finish it off with new hardware. It will look like a brand-new door when you’re done.
Embrace an Outdoor Lighting Project
Adding exterior lighting to your home, patio, walkways and gardens is another effective tip. This will spruce up the outdoors and can even make your back and front gardens more functional. With additional lighting, you may have the option of now sitting outdoors in the evening hours.
Landscaping Beautifies the Outdoors
One of the most impactful transformations you can make to the exterior of the home is to have professional landscaping done. Block paved driveways, rockery for the garden, natural stone pathways, decking, and patios are some of the many options you’ll get through professional landscaping in Solihull or whatever city/town is nearest you. Hiring a professional landscaper means you’ll get fabulous results that match the vision you have. Landscapers are also great in that they can give you tips and advice on the best design and materials to use.
Enjoy a Fresh New Looking Exterior
Using all of these tips means you’ll be able to enjoy a new-looking exterior of your home. Be prepared for the transformation that is about to occur and don’t be surprised if you start finding yourself spending more time outdoors in your garden.
