Whether you live in a little cottage in the country or a tall town house, you should try and keep up with exterior of your property and ensure it looks its best. Whether it takes some small repairs here and there or a huge refurb project, you should always aim to improve the kerb appeal of your property, and in turn, the value. Here are some great ideas for how you can update your property’s exterior.
A fresh lick of paint can really go a long way in brightening up your home. You don’t necessarily have to paint the whole building either; the doors and window frames will make all the difference and protect them from the elements. Wear and tear is natural so be prepared to have to paint your home every few years. It will give you a great chance to switch up the colour palette, if that’s something you’re interested in doing.
Although traditionally associated with churches and other religious buildings, stained glass windows can also make a beautiful addition to any home. You could replace the panel in your front door with stained glass, designed to suit your personal requirements and add an element of personality to your property. For instance, you could have your door number incorporated into the design. Making your front door a focal point of your property will really improve its kerb appeal and a panel of stained glass is probably the most exciting way to achieve this.
Outdoor lighting is great because it not only looks nice, but also adds an element of safety and security to your property. Research has actually proven that exterior lighting deters criminals, as they can’t sneak around as easily. What’s more, they make a stylish statement and add character to the front of your home, without being too expensive.
