Most of us want to make changes to our home, and there’s always something on the list that needs doing. The frontage of your property is the first thing people see, including yourself. Do you still love the look of your home when you pull up on the drive? Are you worried about what people think when they come over to your property? Or are you looking to make your home look the best on the street?
Since we moved into our house five years ago, we have made changes room by room, so inside we now have it nearly exactly how we want it. However coming home one day, we realised that it doesn’t have the same homely feel on the exterior as it does to inside. We soon realised, our house stands out as the one that needs some work.
After looking into the best way to improve the kerb appeal of our property, it was soon apparent that we needed the render repainted, as it had weathered so much and was no longer any shade of white. Looking into having these works done, we then also decided that we would hugely benefit from new windows, after spending last winter being pretty cold and heading into another very cold winter, having this work done we realised this would make us love our home once again.
With that, having work carried out on a property is never cheap. Finding the right contractors, to carry out the best quality of work is time-consuming and stressful. It is always good to use sites which give recommendations and reviews of tradesmen to help with picking the right contractor. However, sometimes improving the exterior of your home does not always need to be expensive or time-consuming. Below I have listed the main points that I feel can improve the exterior of your home and the kerb appeal without bursting the bank.
Go To Work On The Kitchen And Bathrooms
The kitchen and bathrooms are two of the most valuable aspects of any home. They come under such scrutiny because they’re expected to be clean, shiny, pretty, and hygienic. If right now, your bathroom isn’t currently in the best state, then it’s worth putting in the effort. Getting a renovation with water treatment services, too, would make a lot of sense if necessary. Sometimes, the poor state of the kitchen and bathrooms can bring down an entire look and feel of a home.
Giving it a coat of paint
This isn’t the easiest task, however repainting the frontage of your property will hugely improve the kerb appeal of your home. Whether you are just repainting in the same colour, or changing it up with something new, this will give your property a new lease of life.
Clean and maintain frontage
Jet washing the drive, cutting the lawn or just sweeping up some leaves. keeping your frontage clean and tidy will make a huge difference to the look of your home. It is amazing how such a small, quick job can improve the appearance of your property and make you fall in love with your home again.
Add some foliage
Maybe just a hanging basket, or some flowers in pots, adding some flowers which will add colour to your property gives your home a much-needed dash of colour.
Whatever you decide to do, always remember your home is normally your largest asset. Why not make it a beautiful?
