Let’s face it – first impressions count. And making a grand entrance into your home can really change the perception of your property. Street appeal can change the way buyers or potential tenants see your home. Here are 5 things that you can do today to improve your home’s exterior.
A fresh coat of paint can go a long way
Never underestimate the look of a fresh coat of paint on the outside of your home. It’s the perfect way to instantly refresh the feeling of your home.
Make a grand entrance with your front door
A plain and unloved front door can say volumes about your home, while a colourful and well maintained front door can conjure confidence in what’s inside. From a brightly coloured door to interesting hardware, you can change the feeling of the entrance into your home.
Spruce up your front garden
Investing in the landscape by adding some attractive shrubs, or simply weeding and pruning your current garden can make a real impact.
Gather up those curtains
Blend the view of the inside with the outside by perfecting your windows. Properly hung curtains or matching blinds at the front of the house is a great way to create a good impression.
Keep an eye out for eyesores
There are always items that are practical to any home – such as garbage bags or air conditioning units. Make sure to find a way to keep these eyesores well hidden or concealed – there are some clever solutions that you can find!
