The exterior of the home is overlooked when it comes to design and renovation compared to the interior, where the rooms inside are most often referred to as the heart of the home. While renovating the inside of a home includes the excitement of purchasing new furniture and decor, pursuing custom renovations on the house exterior is equally important to match the upkeep of your home’s entire architectural design.
If you are unsure what you can do to improve your home’s exterior, here are seven ways and ideas to customize the outside of your house.
Painting for custom renovations
Adding a fresh coat of paint may seem like it will hardly make a difference on the outside of your home, but it can give your house a refreshed and revamped look. If your home hasn’t been repainted in a while, it can look dull and washed out as the paint begins to wear. Repainting your home to match its architectural style can revitalize the exterior of your home.
As with the paint on your home, your roof can begin to wear after some time. Redoing your roof with updated shingles, if applicable to your home, can make your home look more contemporary. Other materials can be looked into as well that might flatter the exterior, like metal or tile.
Accents and trimming
Another way to customize your home and jump on the trends that modern homes are adopting is to add accents and trimming to the home. Trimming can be added in many places on the outside of your home, from your front door to your window shutters. Installing accent sections using different types of siding on areas like the upper part of a house, the garage, or other attached sections can bring added attention to your home.
Replacing your windows with new, custom ones can brighten up your home. Purchasing new windows that best flatter your home, whether that means a change in size or style, can be a fun way to modernize your home’s current look.
Enhancing your home’s exterior doesn’t have to be regulated to just the home itself; you can also build and add new landscaping within the outdoor area of your home. New shrubs, plants and a garden can make your home even more colourful and appealing to the eye.
New fencing around your home can help define the property. Not only will fencing keep your pets and children safe in the confines of your property, but it can add a stylish look to your exterior. There are varied techniques and materials to choose from, making fencing a must-have when customizing your exterior.
Adding a porch, or focusing on the upkeep of the porch you may already have, will significantly add to the value of your home and can be extremely functional for your family. Porches can be any size that is most convenient for your home and are versatile in the ways you can utilize them, like for seating, firepits, and storage.
Customizing and revamping the exterior of your home is just as crucial as redoing your interior. The care that goes into the upkeep of your home should apply to every area, and with simple ways to completely modernize your exterior, renovating the outside of your home can be exciting and fun!
