In spring, the phrase ‘out with the old, and in with the new’ is regularly tossed around. With a new year around the corner, and the hotter weather on the way, it may be time to update your home. Your houses façade not only may be turning people away, but impacting the total value of your home when looking at market values.
Take this spring to update your homes façade with our 5 makeover tips!
- Clean it up
It may be obvious, but it is a good place to start. It is time to mow the lawn, cut away the weeds, clear up the spider’s webs and clean the windows. Lawn ornaments or furniture may be looking a little dreary, so spruce it up a little with either a thorough clean or a little bit of upcycling.
Clear up any pathways, trim those overgrown hedges and clean out the gutters. It may all seem like simple fixes, but it does make a huge difference to your home. Not only that, but it will increase the fire safety of your home in the soaring heat.
- Paving the way
How are your pathways looking? If they are cracked, broken or worse for wear it may be time to fix or replace it. Giving your home a clear pathway helps to make the exterior look clean and tidy, and adds dimension to your front yard.
- Let there be light
Lighting can make all the difference. Everything looks spookier at night, but it can also make your home look dim and dingy when there isn’t the right lighting to enhance the exterior of your home. Not only does the right lighting help you to make a statement, but it can add an element of safety by deterring possible home invaders.
- Green Additions
You do not need heaps of space to add some greenery to your front yard. Potted plants do go a long way, as do wall mounted plants. Garden beds and plants can really help to frame your home, and compliment the style and design elements that are incorporated in your home.
- Hire a Helping Hand
Landscapers can really help in the renewal of your home’s exterior. Not only will they have the right tools and equipment, but they will add the professional touch to ensure that it is all done quickly and proficiently.
