If you are thinking about improving your home before the end of the year you might want to start by looking at the exterior.
Improving the exterior of your home is beneficial to you in a number of ways. Firstly, if you improve the exterior you can increase the quality of your house and that in turn will make it more valuable.
As well as this, you can change the look of the home and this again, could increase perceived value. Or, you might just find that your home looks stunning when you come home from a long day in the office.
That’s sure to put a smile on your face. So what can you do to improve the outside of your property?
Replace The Doors
It may shock you to know, but there isn’t a whole lot that you can do with the outside of a privately owned home. The reason for this is that councils often arrange contracts so that houses can not be made to stand out from the rest of the street.
It limits the amount of alterations that a homeowner can complete on the outside of their property. But a definite exception is the doors of your home. You can change your doors without having to get permission from the council. This includes your garage door and your front entrance.
You may want to start by changing your front door. You don’t have to get rid of it completely. Instead you could upgrade the windows, with new decorative glass and glazing. This is sure to impress any visitors you have to your house.
Or you might want to focus on the garage door. A lovely pinewood replacement will look stunning and is certain to catch the attention of passers by.
Improve The Windows
You don’t have to stop at the doors of course. You could also add some decorative glass to your front windows. You should however make sure that it fits with the rest of the aesthetic of the home.
Perhaps you could use the same type of style that you fitted into the front door. That way it will match perfectly and look beautiful. Or, you might just want to change your windows to triple glazing.
That way, you will improve the insulation of your house, instantly increasing the value. You’ll certainly appreciate it if we get a cold winter this year.
Add A Unique Feature
You could also add something to your home that makes it stand out from the rest of the street. This is a particularly good idea if you are thinking about selling soon.
It will catch the eye of buyers and draw them away from other prospects. It will also make your home look picturesque and a dream property.
The unique feature could be anything. For instance, you could buy a beautiful animal stone carving or perhaps add a fountain?
