You found a perfect home for yourself and your family. If you were lucky, you compromised by buying something at a lower price that still needs investing. On the other hand, perhaps your new home is no longer what it used to be, or you want to add some curb appeal in order to boost its price. Let’s bring it to perfection and make you happy just by looking at it.
Start at the front
Pay special attention to the front as that is the first thing you see when you approach. Choose the gate and the pave stone that matches the style of your house. You can have hedge, bushes or trees, as long as they are nicely trimmed and give an outline to the pathway that leads to your front door. It all needs to look inviting and as if it was leading you in. You can choose to have a stylish garage door that will fit the rest of the house. Keep your driveway clean at all times.
Create a magical garden
Make your backyard perfectly match your front yard. Again try to keep everything nicely trimmed and mow the lawn regularly. You will add a special touch to your backyard by the use of garden art and adding water. If you can add as little as a bird bath you will bring a breath of fresh air into your garden. Add solar spotlights as they are both energy efficient and practical. They are quite easy to install and they are durable. You can scatter Christmas lights and add magic to it.
Choose the right color
The color pattern you choose for your house is very individual and there is no right answer to it. Some experts claim that it is safe and easy to cover any faults by using two shades of the same color. If you want something more striking, there is no one to say that you cannot have a colorful house. In this case, you perhaps want to aim for the contrasts and try not to overdo it as you do not want your house to stand out for all the wrong reasons.
Replace the roof
The roof of your house needs to be replaced every so often, depending on the durability of the materials used initially. It may be a bit costly but it is an important part of your house and a long term investment. If you are selling the house, it will definitely increase your property price. Roof replacement will bring a whole new air to the house as it will look freshly built. Make sure the color of the roof matches your new exterior and does not add another wild color to the mix.
It seems that for some reason people always wanted to feel like they are outdoors when they are indoors. We all crave a beautiful view and a lot of natural light. Change your windows with the new energy-efficient ones. If the house allows you make additional windows. Glass looks classy, it will add light to your house and make your house glow at night when looked from the outside. Choose your curtains carefully as you want them to be decorative on both sides and protect you from the curious looks of passersby. Think about adding a glass extension to your house with a skylight. Use home window tinting to keep the space private as curtains aren’t really an option here.
These couple of basic tips should help you be proud of your new home or make your old home look like a new one and attract people’s views.
