Are You Letting Your Street Down? Top Tips To Boost Your Homes Kerb Appeal

The way your property looks on your street or road can be a hot topic of conversation amongst your neighbours. If everyone else does their part and your house is letting the side down, you are sure to hear about it. It’s important for people. Whether you plan to sell your home or even your neighbours plan to sell theirs, the street look has just as much sway as the property itself. Often just making some simple changes to the exterior of your home can make a big difference. Here are some of the ways you can improve your homes kerb appeal.


Think about your lawn

Does your lawn look like it has seen better days? You are not alone. Especially if you haven’t been looking after it when the hot days have hit us. So now, more than ever, is a great time to give it a little TLC, just before autumn and winter really sets in. This could mean adding a treatment to help it grow. You could also feed it and treat it making it a more prominent green colour.

Does your home need some work

Take a step back onto the footpath and take a look at your house. What do you see? Does any paintwork need brightening up? Perhaps some pointing needs to be done. Do your windows need a clean? It’s not just the windows itself, but sometimes the PVC can get discoloured over time. Perhaps you need to replace them completely. This is when discussing quotes with companies like Salisbury Glass could be advisable. Taking the time to look at your home and highlighting the jobs that need to be done could save you some financial heartache in the future. Especially when it comes to the building like the brickwork.

Flowers could brighten the exterior up

Even if you don’t have the greenest of fingers, you have to admit that a bright and colourful flowerbed always makes a house look better. It doesn’t take a gardener to create a nice look either. Just pick out some flowers that are low maintenance and plant them in your flower beds. It can be a very simple thing to do but can give off a huge effect overall.

Garage doors are one of the first things people see

There is no hiding from it. If you have a garage, then the garage doors are one of the biggest things someone's eye is drawn to. If they appear tattered, broken or discoloured then it won’t do for your overall kerb appeal. I appreciate they could be a cost you hadn’t wanted to take into consideration. So use it as an opportunity to install something modern and longer lasting. That way it is more of an investment than anything else. Or if it is simple repairs like painting and fixing them up then make sure you take the time to get it done. Doing this alone could drastically increase your kerb appeal.

I hope that these tips help you to ensure that your home looks fabulous on the exterior.
