Ways to Spruce Up Your Home for Spring
Spring is finally here! It’s the perfect time of year to spend your weekends relaxing in the coastal breeze and soaking up the warm sun. This ideal weather also makes it an excellent time to start on outdoor home projects. If you’re looking to spruce up your home this season but don’t know where to begin, we can help! We’ve put together a list of some easy and great ways to enhance the outside of your home without embarking on an entire house remodel. Check out our suggestions below!
Upgraded Front Door
Your front door is the gateway into your home and should represent the welcoming and desired atmosphere of your home. Chipped paint, ripped screens, and noticeable scratches can diminish the beauty and charm of your front door. One easy way to improve your door’s appearance is with a paint job. A fresh coat of paint can cover up blemishes on a door and give a new look to your entire front porch or entrance. If you want to change up your entryway style, a new front door is a great option. Whether your front door is wooden, glass, steel, iron, or any other door type, it should greet your guest and give them a positive impression of your home.
Speaking of your home’s entryway, your front porch should also present a well-kept and cordial ambiance to those who visit your house. A great way to make this space more inviting is by adding furniture. After all, why have a porch if you can’t enjoy spending time on it? A swing, outdoor couches, or just simple patio furniture such as chairs and benches can add a welcoming appeal to the front of your house and provide a great space for socializing. Throw in a few accent pillows and plants as well, and your front or back porch turns into its own entertaining space!
If you have a deck or steps leading towards your home's front or back doors, we encourage you to add a railing. Railings look great in outdoor spaces like these and can keep them secure. For those who have kids, railing is ideal for keeping your little ones from tripping up and down the steps or accidentally stepping off the porch or deck. The choices of styles and materials of the railing are pretty broad, so you can find just the right display to make your deck or porch stand out.
One way to completely change the look of your home is with new siding. Replacing your siding or giving it a paint job can completely freshen up the outside of your home and give it an entirely new look! Siding keeps our homes safe and protects them from the elements, but their appearance and durability can subside due to harsh weather over time. It’s in you and your home’s best interest to have your siding refinished every five to ten years. Adding a fresh coat of paint to your siding can really transform your home and give it a clean and refined look.
