We know, we know. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” “It’s what’s on the inside that counts.” While those sentiments are certainly true for people, they may not always be true for your home, no matter how much you love it. If you adore your house but admit that it’s looking a little drab, don’t feel guilty, everything needs a little facelift now and then. A few simple exterior renovations can make a huge difference in your home’s appearance and help the outside world see the beauty that you see inside.. Here are some good places to start:
While a fresh coat of exterior paint (unless you have vinyl siding) is probably the cheapest way to give your home a boost, depending on your situation it may not be enough. Replacing or upgrading your siding is a great way to make you feel like you’re living in an entirely new space without actually having to move anywhere. New siding has other non-aesthetic benefits as well, including better insulation, better protection against weather damage and wear and tear, and increased durability in general.
Windows and Doors
Though often overlooked, new windows and doors make a bold statement. Whether you want to add a pop of color or a flash of extra class, the possibilities are endless. Replacing your windows and doors can improve the inside of your home as well by allowing more light in, and, as an added bonus, they can help you preserve heat and save energy too.
Clichés are clichés for a reason, right? So the saying “It’s the little things that count” has to have at least some merit. Well, when it comes to exterior renovation, we think the little things pull their weight big time. Sometimes simply updating the color, style, or layout of the trim on your house can make a huge difference in its overall look. True, if you decide to change the color you’ll most likely have to take the plunge and paint or replace the main siding as well (we all know faded siding with fresh trim can look a little off), but if that’s the catalyst you need then we’re all for it.
