Oftentimes, homeowners get caught up in freshening up the interior of their homes and forget about its exterior. But a home’s exterior is akin to a book cover. While you should not judge a book by its cover, it does make the first impression and set the tone for what is inside.
Many homes can benefit from a little sprucing up, and there are several simple ways you can freshen up your home’s exterior.
Whether you are making a few home renovations before you sell, to make it more aligned with your aesthetic preferences, or are building your home from the ground up, you should not neglect the value of freshening up your home’s exterior.
3 Ways to Improve Your Home’s Exterior
The following are three easy ideas to help you improve your home’s exterior and set the appropriate tone for the aesthetics inside.
#1: Create a Coastal Facade
A home’s exterior facade has the unique ability to enhance the architectural design. Coastal designs are full of naturally rich textures. Creating a custom coastal facade for your Vero Beach home can often mean embracing the natural look of untreated wood siding. Depending on the wood siding, such as a radiata pine that’s treated with acetic anhydride, you can design a coastal facade that sustainably blends your home and landscape.
#2: Enhance Your Front Yard Appeal
Similar to how many individuals focus on their home’s interior, people often focus on improving their backyard and neglect their front yard. But the front matters, too—especially when it comes to improving your home’s curb appeal.
You can freshen up your home’s exterior with a few front yard updates that make it a fun and functional area of your property. For example, like your backyard, you can install a water feature, outdoor fireplace, or even create a garden that accentuates your home’s design.
#3: Add Symmetry Where Applicable
Homes are often designed with several symmetrical elements. The more symmetrical focal points it has, the more aesthetically pleasing it becomes. One way you can easily add symmetry to your home is by installing matching light fixtures or plants on the sides of your front door or garage.
