There’s no denying that many people’s houses look identical to neighbouring ones on their street, and yours is probably a prime example.
However, what you may not realise is that you can make some significant improvements to your home’s exterior without it sticking out like a sore thumb!
You’re probably reading this today because you want to make the outside of your home more unique. What’s more, you likely want to seek some ways that increase the value of your abode.
With that in mind, check out the following tips and tricks to achieve both those objectives and make your house look impressive – even if neighbouring homes do not:
Get Your uPVC Doors And Windows Resprayed
It’s no secret that most people’s homes have white uPVC doors and windows, and the reason for that is simple: they are the cheapest ones to buy.
However, what you don’t want to do is make your home look cheap; you want to make it look like a million pounds! One idea is to have your existing white uPVC door and window frames resprayed in grey to achieve a modern, contemporary look.
Have A Well-Manicured Lawn
Next, pay some attention to your front lawn. Even if it looks reasonably okay, you should upgrade your front garden to a well-manicured one. For many people, that means removing the old grass, levelling the topsoil, and spreading some premium grass seeds on top.
You’ll have to take action at specific times of the year as directed by the pack’s instructions. But, the results will be worth it when you have a lovely lawn free of weeds. Of course, you should ensure you mow the lawn regularly when it grows for optimal results!
Install A Timber-Framed Garage
Are you fed up with never having somewhere undercover to protect your car when you drive home each day? If so, and provided you’ve got the space and any necessary planning permission, you should invest in an oak framed garage.
You can buy oak garage kits that either you could assemble – or get an expert to help with, and they’ll look fantastic compared with ordinary external garages made of concrete and steel.
Buy Some Exotic Plants And Trees
You’ve undoubtedly taken some inspiration for your front lawn by reading the previous section on investing in some premium grass seeds. One way to enhance your lawn is by getting some exotic plants and trees for your front garden area.
For example, you could plant some palm trees to give the outside of your house a Caribbean feel – and yes, palm trees are suitable for the UK’s climate!
Replace Wood Fencing With Brick Walls
One final inspirational idea for you to consider is replacing your wood fencing and concrete posts with brick walls. It’s an excellent way to make your home’s exterior appear more affluent, especially when you opt for creative brick wall designs such as curved sections.
If you’re a keen DIYer and work in the construction industry, you could even do the work yourself.
Hopefully, the above ideas will have given you some food for thought. There are plenty of ways to make your house look posh, and the ones illustrated on this page are some of the most popular options.
