How to Give the outside of Your House a Makeover

by Kevin Smith Author

If the outside of your house is looking a little drab it may be time for a makeover. Here are some small, and big changes you can make to give your home a fresh look and instant curb appeal.

Small Changes

Painting the front door can give your house an instant energy boost. Choose a bold color that makes a statement, but goes well with the rest of the colors of the house. You will need to be sure you prep the door first and remove any old paint. For expert help, you could hire a company that provides exterior painting in Canton, GA.

Other small changes to the entryway give the home charm and make it seem more inviting. Add a welcoming doormat, a fun shaped doorknob, or some potted plants around the front door. A unique door knocker can be a fun way to add some personality to the entrance as well.

Everyday Changes

Items you use every day can get worn down in a hurry. It is a good idea to replace these when they get worn to keep the house looking good. One example is the mailbox. Adding a new mailbox instantly helps the curb appeal of your home. New house numbers are another great idea to spruce up the look of the home, and they will make your house easier to find for visitors and delivery people. Evaluate your outdoor lighting. You can upgrade your fixtures to provide more light or switch to energy saving bulbs.

Walk past your home and pretend you are a visitor. Are there objects in the yard or pathway that need to be removed? Cleaning up clutter is a free way to instantly uplift the look of the exterior of your home. Keep lawn instruments, machines, and kids toys tucked away in a garage or shed. Larger toys like jungle gyms and swing sets are best for the backyard.

Design Changes

Adding furniture to your front porch makes it feel more inviting. A porch swing or a set of chairs with small stands are great for evening chats with family and friends. You can find furniture at second-hand stores and revamp them with a new coat of paint and some new throw pillows or cushions.

The exterior of your house could also use a little love when it comes to paint and shutters. Adding shutters to windows can give it a design boost, and a new shade of paint can do wonders. If you are unsure where to start painting your house, you can work with a professional painting company that offers exterior painting in Canton, GA.
