There are a variety of reasons why people want to improve the property exterior. Some do it simply because they want to enhance their home for their own sake. Others, because they want to impress (or keep up with!) the neighbours or add value because they’re planning to sell it. Whatever the reason, here are our top five suggestions of what you can do to your home in order to make it look great:
Replace your doors and windows
sometimes a fresh lick of paint won’t be enough, and you can improve the look of your property considerably by replacing the doors and windows, including your garage door. New doors and windows will also help with the security of your property and garage, as well as improve the insulation.
Have a colourful, well-tended garden
it won’t matter how beautiful your property is – if the garden is a neglected and overgrown tangle of weeds, it will make the rest of your home appear unloved too. At the very least, keep the grass mown and the beds weeded. And if you plant different types of flowers that bloom at different times of the year, it will look lovely across all the seasons.
Clean the path and driveway
hire a pressure washer and get rid of all the dirt that’s accumulated over the years. It’s amazing how much of a difference it will make.
Maintain the fencing
keep your wooden fencing panels protected by applying wood stain every couple of years. At the same time, check the fence to see if any parts of it need mending. Loose panels are more likely to be damaged in the winter gales, so you could also be saving yourself a hefty repair bill later on!
Invest in a new patio awning
awnings are as beautiful as they are practical. On the blisteringly hot days we sometimes experience in the UK, they will help keep your house much cooler and provide more shade than a garden parasol can, which means you can spend more time outside enjoying the fresh air.
