You don’t have to empty your wallet to improve your home. You can make a real impact on the way your house feels and looks at an affordable price. Not all changes have to be extreme in order to be noticed. You can make small, yet impressive improvements to your home. To learn more about how you can give your home’s exterior a face-lift in affordable ways, read the following helpful ideas. They will help to either renew your home or add new interest for potential buyers.
- Replace the front door.
Let’s start with the entrance of your home. As insignificant as exterior doors can feel to the aesthetic appeal of a home, it is one of the first things your visitors will notice. When choosing a new exterior door, consider the style of your home. Depending on the style you’re going for, having your exterior door stand out or blend into the rest of the home can add a subtle yet noticeable change to your home. For instance, a white Victorian-style home may be complemented by the presence of a wooden-style dark brown or black door.
- Replace the windows.
Not only do you want to make sure that the windows are in good shape, but you also want to make sure that they’re complementary to the entire house’s presentation. Windows not only allow for sunshine to come through your home (and to protect you from the elements), but they can also accentuate your home. Focusing on details, like windows, can make a big difference in your home’s overall aesthetics.
- Spruce up your flower beds.
Hiring a professional landscaper can be expensive. Put on some gardening gloves and create your own curb appeal. Not only does it feel better because it’s something you’ve created, but it’s also less costly. Plant some fresh flowers inside some window boxes. Pick a variety of different colored plants to really make them pop. It’s therapeutic as well. If you’re shopping for a bargain, ask the plant specialist which plants are on sale. Tending to live plants can be intimidating for beginning gardeners. No worries! Ask the specialist for tips or do some research online about how to tend to the plants that you’re interested in.
Other ways that you can increase your home’s curb appeal is by painting your front door a different color. We recommend picking a color that’s warm and inviting. Adding new patio furniture can also help. Check out local thrift stores or look for sales if you’re on a budget. Install a new porch light fixture to add a small but welcome change. How welcoming is your front porch? Maybe adding a bench will help make it more inviting. The possibilities are endless. For discount exterior doors and windows, make McCarren Supply your first stop.
