5 Ways to Improve the Exterior Appearance of Your Home


5 Ways to Improve the Exterior Appearance of Your Home

Transforming your home during renovations can be a fun project with very impressive outcomes. But, most people focus more on the interior design and layout rather than what can be improved in the exterior appearance. The curb appeal of your home can have a very huge impact on people’s impressions of your home as well as your real estate value. Improving your home’s exterior requires relatively less time, stress, and money than an interior renovation project. Here are five amazing ways to improve the exterior appearance of your home.

 

1. Window and Door Replacement

Replacing your windows and doors has a drastic effect on your home’s appearance, especially if updating the style and colour. With newer windows, the exterior of your home looks fresh and you get a great return on your investment, as most new windows and doors are significantly more energy-efficient than their predecessors. Windows and doors with new styles and updated colours have the biggest impact on your home’s aesthetics.

 

2. Paint Your Garage Door

As mentioned earlier, replacing windows and doors are your go-to step for improving the exterior appearance of your home. Painting or replacing your garage doors to match the overall style of the home will add an additional pop to your home’s exterior.

 

3. Replace your roof

Your roof covers a large space of your home’s exterior, and it literally stands above the rest of your home. Replacing your roof goes a long way in improving your home’s exterior appearance and curb appeal. If the material of your roof can be repainted, then you should consider updating the paint.

 

4. Give your driveway a makeover

If you have a long or wide driveway, you don’t have to look any further to find a way to improve your home’s external appearance. You can seal your driveway to give it a new look and even add some landscape lighting down the side. If you have the budget for a larger makeover, you can replace and or extend your driveway with pavers or stamped concrete. Any of these updates will help your home’s exterior come alive.

 

5. Lighting

Your home’s exterior lighting can really make a difference on your exterior aesthetics. New light fixtures will not only change the look of your home, it can also add more light brightening up your home at night.

There are many ways to help the exterior of your home go from basic to magazine cover. Updating your landscaping is another excellent way to increase curb appeal. Never underestimate the power of a few shrubs and flower bushes.
