It’s all too easy to become focused on the interiors of our homes. However, when we are planning to sell or if we want to show off our largest asset, the outside of our pads is the first thing that people will see.
A messy driveway, cracked roof tiles and a grubby facade simply won’t do. Take a look at these three simple ways to revolutionize your home’s curb appeal.
1. Look Up
It’s vital that you keep checking the exterior of your home for any maintenance issues that may arise. When the exterior of your home falls into disrepair, it tends to look messy. A cracked or missing roof tile can look sloppy and untidy.
Dodgy looking guttering can appear unkempt and gives the impression that the occupant doesn’t care about their dwelling. Create a better impression to passersby by ensuring that you get a roofer to check over your slate tiles. If you have any leaks within the home it might be a good idea to replace the roof.
Guttering needs clearing regularly to ensure it remains hole free and doesn’t get clogged with moss or leaves inhibiting drainage. Get these issues fixed and your home will look better from the curb.
2. Think About Your Driveway.
The driveway that you have for your home might be a postage stamp or it can be vast. If you’re lucky enough to have a lot of space, consider installing a carport. Metal varieties are popular as carport prices have become more reasonable in recent years.
Your car will be protected from the elements as well as having a more attractive aesthetic to your spacious driveway. Easy to install and relatively cheap, a carport can be a real asset when selling your home.
If your driveway is brick, ensure that you clean it regularly. If you don’t it can look grubby, and weeds may even crack your bricks. If you have trees over your driveway, sweep the buds and leaves away regularly and ensure that your driveway is well maintained.
Windows really are the major aspect to your home that most people will focus on when approaching your pad. Dress the window with some window boxes and plant some colorful flora and fauna to attract the eye. Make sure that you have suitable window dressings on the interior that look attractive on the exterior.
Shutters and blinds look neat and are modern for the millennial house buyer. If you prefer something more traditional, ensure your drapes look tidy when drawn. Keep the window fascias dirt free, and get a window cleaner around once a month to keep your beautiful glazing clean and bright.
Having an attractive home needn’t be too difficult. Concentrate on your exterior for a while and enhance the curb appeal of your pad.
