We all know that its inner beauty that really counts – and we’ve got hundreds of ideas for remodeling your kitchen, bathroom, basement or any room of your home – but sometimes the outside of your home needs a little love too. This blog post is here to help you increase your curb appeal, whether for simple neighborhood pride or to catch the eye of a potential buyer.

 

A Fresh Coat of Paint

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your home. If your home is a dull or drab color, now’s the time to brighten it with a favorite color you love, or even just update it from a tired gray or brown to a fresh, pure white.
If you are changing the color of your home, ensure you stay in keeping with the overall look and feel of your neighborhood.
Love the color your home is already? Repainting in the same color might not make quite such a striking impact but refreshing weathered paint can certainly add a new air of perfection to your home.

Fix Your Roof

If your roof is looking worse for wear it might be time to invest in a new one, or make any essential improvements that will prevent future problems. A new roof might not sound exciting, but it can neaten up your home and is a very practical update that can also increase the salability of your home.

Add a Deck or Patio

It’s a bigger investment, but it’s a game-changer. Adding a patio or deck to your home can change your lifestyle – enabling you to spend more time outdoors so you can make the most of the spring, summer and autumn weather.

Expand Up or Out

When it comes to our homes, sometimes bigger is better. Expand your home and create a more impressive presence with a home addition. If you have the extra space, expanding out is probably the easier option of the two. However, building up is a great solution for anyone without the space to spare who needs more room in their home and would prefer not to move

Landscaping

Even a little light landscaping can make a big difference to how tidy and well-kept your home looks. If there’s no clear access route to your home, consider adding a path. If you have an old, unattractive or unnecessary fence, consider upgrading or removing it. Add plants you love that are easy to care for, and that bloom in colors that complement the color of your home. Think about the location of your home and the theme – a cabin in the woods will benefit from quite different plant and tree selections to a beach house.

Garage or Driveway

It might not be the first thing you think of, but your garage space and driveway are part of your home too.
Consider updating old or cracked driveway tiling. If you have a garage, how does the door look? A simple garage door update can tidy up this area of your home with minimal effort.
