Springtime is just around the corner. It’s time to finish those indoor projects and head outside. If your home’s curb appeal has lost its shine, it may be time to consider a few exterior renovations to bring back its luster. Freshening up your home’s exterior adds value and can make it feel like a brand-new house. The following projects will have your home looking like new.
Update the Exterior Siding
Looking for a renovation project that will have a big impact? Consider updating your home’s exterior. Removing your home’s old exterior and replacing it with fiber cement siding or new vinyl siding will give you a low-maintenance makeover with high impact.
Replace Old Windows
If your windows are outdated, hard to clean, or not energy efficient, consider updating them. This is another exterior renovation that has a big impact. Installing energy-efficient windows will also save money on your heating and cooling costs. Adding specialty windows, such as a picture window or a bay window, can bring more natural light into your home and allow you to enjoy the view of the outdoors.
Highlight Unique Features
If your home has a specialty window or interesting architectural feature, make sure you are highlighting it. Add some trim around the windows, or replace the worn-out gutters along your roofline.
Remodel Your Porch
Does your front porch say ‘Welcome,” or does it have visitors wondering if they are at the right house? Remodeling your front porch can have a dramatic impact on your home’s curb appeal. Even upgrading your current porch with a new portico, entry door, railings, or just some fresh paint and plants will go a long way to updating your look.
Freshen Up the Front Door
Changing your front door is an easy way to update the look of your home. Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint in this year’s color of the year, or a complete door replacement, changing this exterior feature can add new life to your home.
Replace the Lighting
Replacing your outdoor light fixtures with something on-trend can update your style with little effort and low cost. You may want to add additional lighting to walkways and your landscaping to highlight your home’s exterior architecture.
Upgrade Your Walkways
Are your walkways starting to crumble? Upgrading your walkways can improve your home’s curb appeal and prevent slip/fall accidents caused by uneven surfaces. Consider pouring new concrete with a stamped design or replacing a concrete walkway with brick to give it more charm.
Spruce Up Your Landscaping
If your bushes are blocking the view, it may be time to dig out those overgrown hedges and replace them. Trimming hedges and trees, planting flowers, and adding some fresh mulch can improve your curb appeal dramatically.
