Give Your Home Exterior the Drastic Upgrade It Needs

20 January 2021


Looking for a drastic way to spruce up your home? Your exterior is probably a great place to get started. While most of us focus on changing the interior of our homes with new furniture and decor, it’s also important to remember just how much can be achieved by sprucing up the outside of your house. It is, however, easy to get overwhelmed when it comes to upgrading the outer spaces of your home because there are just so many different choices.

So in this post, we’ve compiled some of the most drastic improvements that you can make to the outside of your property. Some of these might seem incredibly expensive or difficult to pull off, but they’re great options if you’re looking for a unique way to set your property apart from others or if you really need an upgrade.




Change the proportions of your house by building extensions

The idea of extending a home can seem really expensive and difficult, but it’s can become very achievable given the right budget and ability to find the right contractors to work with. It’s also one of the few options that give you a lot of flexibility because you’re essentially adding new rooms and functionality to your home. It can also drastically change the overall feel of your home due to the proportions changing.

There are a lot of things to keep in consideration if you want to extend your home, so we suggest speaking to a contractor or planner that has plenty of experience in the field.

Cover the entrance to your front door and transform the entrance

A rather simple way to upgrade your home exterior is to improve your front door. This sounds a lot more insignificant than it actually is. You see, your front door is the main entrance to your home, meaning that almost everyone has to pass through it if they want to enter your property. As the gateway to your home, it has to make a good first impression. Whenever people see your home or enter it, they’re going to establish some kind of expectations from the front door alone.

So what does it take to improve your front door? There are lots of small ways to renovate your entrance to make it stand out. This can include renovating the steps leading up to it, adding decorations such as potted plants, changing the door, cleaning the glass, painting it, or even adding a little roof above it to shield from rain.

Add unique paths around the exterior of your home

Another fantastic way to drastically upgrade the exterior of your home is to look for a concreter to help you make unique paths around your home. You can also add stone paths or even tarmac if you prefer for something like a driveway. Paths can be a fantastic addition to your home if you have quite a lot of space around your property. You can have paths leading up to your front door to make it more welcoming, and you can also have a path leading to the back of your home or the garden.

Paths can seem relatively simple at first, but there are a lot of little things you can do to make them stand out and seem more luxurious or fit the overall feel and design of your home. For instance, some people like to use gravel paths because it creates a pleasant feeling when you’re walking over them, but others like to use large stone slabs because it creates a more rustic feel. Others just like to use solid concrete because it looks a lot more uniform and its modern homes.





Paint your roof a different colour

Your roof is a surprisingly large portion of your home that most people don’t think of renovating or changing. In fact, our roof is one of the most underappreciated areas of our home and it usually ends up needing expensive repairs because we tend to neglect it. However, it’s one of the best places to renovate if you want to completely change the look and feel of your home.

It can be difficult to decide on a colour combination for your roof. Ideally, it should be something that fits with the exterior of your home. If your siding is white or black, then you can generally use any colour that you like to make your roof stand out. However, if your siding is already painted in a bold colour, then you may want to try out different combinations to see what works best for your preferences.

Change the style of your windows to something a little more unique

There are lots of unique window ideas that you can use to make your home stand out a little more. Windows tend to be neglected because they’re not something we consider changing on a regular basis. However, upgrading a window can have more benefits than just improving the overall appearance of your home.

For example, changing your windows out could improve the overall energy efficiency of your home if it stops cold air from coming in. It can also improve the overall security of your home if you decide to change the locks on it. You can even switch out your windows so that it can fit something like an air conditioner.

Consider landscaping ideas around your home

Lastly, we suggest you look at different landscaping ideas to get an idea of how to use the space around your home. This is about more than just planting trees and plants! You can use different plant combinations to create something unique, or you can consider changing the physical land around your home such as raising or lowering parts to create a distinct or eccentric look.

There are lots of ways to use landscaping to your advantage, so we suggest working with a professional landscaper to unlock the potential of your home exterior. It can get quite expensive, but it’s worth it if you want to have your property stand out or look more luxurious.
