Welcome Back Boo,
I hope you are all well this Tuesday!
If you’ve been considering revamping the look of your home recently, the outside of your property might have been last on your list of possible renovation projects. Even though the paint is peeling from your rendering, a hinge has broken off the door frame, and the tiles on the roof look more like a patchwork quilt, you are still more enamoured with tackling your kitchen, bathroom or living space.
However, you shouldn’t neglect the exterior of your home; this is what generates the curb appeal of your pad, turns heads and is the first thing people see as they walk up your drive. Take a look at these reasons why you should forget about the interior design and focus your efforts on the exterior.
Although it might be a tad boring, the safety and security of the occupants of your dwelling are of utmost importance. It’s essential that your humble abode is as thief-proof as possible and doesn’t encourage would-be burglars to have a go at casing the joint. The uPVC framing around your windows may need to be repaired or replaced, and you might need to look into fitting an alarm system to deter criminals. If your front door is single glazed only or lacking the robustness of more modern doors, take a look at a company like George Hill Timber to source external paint grade fire doors. These can then be fitted and adapted to your own personal style ensuring a safe entrance to your home.
While you might not like to think of yourself as a Stepford wife, it’s still admirable to take pride in your property. You want the exterior of your home to look presentable and stylish to create a good impression of your neighbourhood. If those living around you have pristine lawns, beautiful hanging baskets and well-coiffed foliage, you don’t want to be the house that everyone mutters about disparagingly as they walk past because it looks shabby and grubby. Whip out the lawnmower, get your shears out and maintain your garden area. It’s vital that you play your part in making your road a pleasant and appealing place to live.
Although it may not affect the curb appeal of your home, you still need your dwelling to be well maintained. A dodgy roof, poor pointing and neglected flashing can result in leaks, draughts and inefficiencies within the home. At best your utility bills might be a little steep, and at worst, you may find the dreaded black mould appearing around your window fascias. This is bad for your health and can lead to a damp, musty atmosphere permeating your home. With a well-maintained home that has been cared for and looked after, you won’t need to worry about the occupants living within your four walls.
Your family home should be a safe, pleasant and happy place. While the interior of your pad goes a long way to ensuring this, never neglect the integral role that the exterior of your home can play.
Remember to keep on slaying,
See you next time xoxo
