Home Exterior Makeover 101
Refresh Your Home’s Siding
There is nothing more noticeable than updating your siding to something more spectacular.
A new exterior from the experts in home siding might be just the thing to breathe new life into your home. There are a variety of styles, colors, and options available. The James Hardie line provides an elegant look at an affordable price. It may be time to change the style or color of your home’s exterior.
Transform the Front Porch
The front porch is both a living and gathering space. It should be both inviting and accommodating. It may be time to add some new furniture. A bigger couch and table with comfortable cushions can provide the needed incentive to crack a book outdoors when the weather warms.
Add Some Landscaping
A well thought out design and color palette will dramatically improve curb appeal.
Some flowers out front during the spring, summer and fall months can go a long way in beautifying your home. One tip would be to plant in accordance with each season. If you want your home looking beautiful through this nine-month window, consider planting a few flowers that grow in each season. That way it’s active for longer.
Add Some Lighting to That Landscaping
The right lighting highlights areas of your home exterior that deserve the most attention. From solar powered light-lit brick walkways to entryways worthy of a spotlight, there are hundreds of affordable options to consider.
Redo Your Driveway
Is your driveway looking a little dated? It may be time to fix the cracks or repave it. An old and worn driveway can detract from the appeal of your home.
Start Small and Build
A home exterior makeover doesn’t have to be filled with high-ticket expenses. Paying attention to the smaller details and chunking out major projects over time can help you continue to create the type of yard you’ll love to spend time in.
