You give your wardrobe a seasonal sprucing up, so why not show your yard some love too. Consider adding a paved walkway or large planters to accent your homes entrance. Find a few places in your yard to add flowering plants or a beautiful tree. Don’t forget to use quality mulch in all your landscaping beds!

2. Upgrade Your Entryway

Create a welcoming entry to your home by adding a covered porch or portico. Or if your home already has a porch, consider replacing the columns and rails to make a beautiful architectural statement. Your front door should be given special consideration in a remodel as it’s likely the first part of your home someone will spend time studying. Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint or a completely new door, this one change can make or break your exterior remodel. And if you have a fun streak, consider adding some colorful chairs to your porch.

3. Transform the Exterior Surfaces

If your home has traditional vinyl siding, consider replacing it with fiber cement siding. Or for a more significant transformation, replace siding with manufactured stone or brick. Explore the possibility of incorporating special materials as accents like fish-scale shingles or board-and-batten shutters.

If any of these ideas sound great but you need help designing the perfect exterior for your home, we’d love to help.
