The exterior of your home plays a large part in curb appeal and the value of your property. There are many options when it comes to updating the exterior of your home. Whether you are looking to update the visual appeal of your home or protect it from the elements, there are many investments you can make on your home’s exterior.
Entry Door Replacement
Your front door can make a statement. When looking at entry door replacement, choose a style and color will enhance the exterior look of your home. When upgrading your front door, look at adding features such as side lights or windows. If your home is a neutral shade, entry door replacement can be a fun way to add a pop of color to make your home stand out in the best way.
Installing Replacement Windows
Window replacement is a significant financial investment, but one that can make a big difference in both the look and energy efficiency of your home. Homeowners can expect to see and feel an immediate improvement in their energy consumption. Replacing windows can also improve the look of your home. You may even consider adding larger bay windows, which will give your home more natural light and add dimension to your exterior.
Roof replacement is another investment that will improve both the look of your home’s exterior, as well as adding energy efficiency and protection from the elements. When roof replacement is needed, it’s smart to get that taken care of before more expensive issues develop. There are several new styles of roofing shingles that not only look great, but also reflect UV light to help with energy efficiency.
Landscaping is a great way to enhance your home’s exterior. Defining beds with colorful plants can bring color and life to your home’s exterior. Well-placed shrubs against your home increase the curb appeal and can make your home stand out. When landscaping, it’s important that your shrubs and beds are neat and defined. This will help your home look polished.
Trim and Shutters
Many homes have shutters that are old-fashioned and non-functional. There are currently several stylish shutters available that can upgrade your home’s appearance. Shutters are another way to add a pop of color to your home. If the color of your siding and front door are neutral, your shutters can be a focal point. If your front door is a pop of color, a neutral shutter will make the door pop more. Touching up the trim gives your home a polished look that will help enhance the curb appeal.
Adding exterior lighting will help your home stand out any time of day. Adding accent lights, door lights, and sconces will help light your home at night for guests visiting after dark, but will also let your home stay visible. Some home styles lend themselves well to landscaping and roof lighting, which help define your home and provide increased security.
