Tips for Improving Your Home’s Kerb Appeal
The front of your home and your driveway is the first thing most visitors to your home will see. You want to ensure that they leave with a positive first impression. There are a number of ways to improve your home’s kerb appeal, and it’s up to you whether you try them all or just pick your favourite.
Spruce up your front door
Black is always a safe bet, but if you fancy something a little more vibrant, bright colours in full gloss attract the eye. You should also spend money on high-quality door furniture, but ensure that it’s in keeping with the style of your home. For contemporary homes, brushed chrome or aluminium door knobs look great; save the heavy Victorian door knockers for period properties and country cottages.
Keep it tidy
Nothing makes a poor first impression more than an untidy façade. Ensure that your driveway, steps and/or path leading to your home are free of rubbish and regularly swept to remove leaves, particularly in the autumn. You should paint railings and gates regularly too.
Maintain your windows
Peeling paint, rotten window frames or even dirty windows can all detract from your home’s kerb appeal. If you don’t have time to clean your windows, hire in professionals and ensure the frames are regularly painted or varnished. If you’re installing new windows, make sure that they complement the design of the rest of your home.
Install a new driveway
A new driveway can do wonders for your home’s kerb appeal! If the idea of a low-maintenance, stylish driveway appeals then resin bound paving is an excellent choice. Small stones are bound together with high-tech resin and you can choose from a variety of colours and designs to create a unique look.
Resin driveways are also a great option for those with children or wheelchair users, as the surface is smoother and more stable than gravel; not to mention water permeable, reducing flooding risk.
