When you have your own home, it is understandable that your thoughts are less about going out and more about paint colours and interior design. As your life changes, so does your priorities it seems. But while the interior of your home is very important and is a chance to be an extension of who you are as an individual or a family, it is also important for you to take time out to consider the exterior and the kerb appeal. So here are some of the things to think about.
The exterior of your property
One of the first things to think about would be the exterior of your property and how it can help to increase the overall look of your home when it comes to first impressions. It could be the simplest of things to think about, but it can make a big difference. Think about things like your windows and doors, and whether or not they are in good condition, look clean and presentable. Also things like your garage door, when was it last replaced or repaired? It might be time to start thinking about award winning garage roller doors as an alternative. These things can make a big difference to how your property looks.
Painting the door a different colour
It is always a good idea to think about ways you can make your property stand out on the street and a great way to do it is through the choice of colour of your door. Painting it a different colour, or a brighter shade, can help it to really stand out. There are some great colour suggestions online, but also a trend of yellow and blue doors seems to be making more of an appearance. What colour would you choose?
Tidying up the garden and frontage
A simple but yet effective thing to do would be to take some time to tidy up the garden and the frontage of your home. It might be getting rid of fallen leaves and debris from your garden or driveway. It could be about getting rid of weeds on the path or in the flowerbeds, and makybe taking some time to cut the grass and trim the edges. A lot of people focus on the gardens but tend to stick with the back, but the front might also be a great way to attract people to your home.
Planting plants and thinking about any fencing
If you do have the luxury of flowerbeds in the front garden, then why not use this to your advantage? Planting some new plants or flowers can be an excellent way to attract people to your home, especially if you add a bit of colour. Many homes at the front also have fencing, so it could be time to check there are no repairs that need to be made. Giving them a fresh coat of paint could also transform the way your home looks from the kerb.
Let’s hope this has given you some inspiration to help you improve your homes kerb appeal.
