5 Simple Fixes For Improving Your Home’s Exterior (And Our Recommendations)

Our homes go through many different redesigns over the years, from moving some furniture around to completely redecorating a room. Whenever we get complacent with how it looks, we like to change things.

The same can’t be said for the outside of the house however, with many people forgetting about the exterior of their property. We thought we would give the outside some love and give you a few tips on how you can rejuvenate your home’s surroundings.


A Fresh Coat Of Paint

One of the easiest fixes to a fresh looking home is to change things up and add a fresh coat of paint. This can be the front door, the window frames or even the entire house.

Painting the exterior of your home can be a great way of breathing new life into the property and can change your entire outlook on the house. Don’t worry about sticking to conventional colours either; let your front door be a reflection of both you and the inside of your home.

You can even get creative with it and paint some fantastic designs, offering a quirky take on the front door. There are no rules, so have some fun with it.

Now that summer is approaching, this is the perfect time for you to break out your painting clothes and grab a brush. There are definitely worse ways to spend a sunny day than improving the look of your front door with an ice-cold glass of lemonade on the side.

If you’re looking for a professional to ensure that your doors and windows look perfect, then we recommend using Cold Shield. Cold Shield is a decorating company that specialises in uPVC Spray Painting. They go the extra mile when it comes to meeting your vision and you’re guaranteed to love the finished product.

Don’t Forget About The Garden

When thinking about improving your home, you can’t forget about the garden.

Keeping a well-maintained garden can be a full time job, we know. But this is not an excuse to keep it simple and boring. Potted plants, furniture and even stones can be nice additions to your garden that require little to no up keeping.

You shouldn’t ignore your front garden as well, because first impressions count for a lot. When someone comes to your home, the front garden is often the first thing they see and because of this, you need to impress.

Paving slabs and stones are a fantastic option for creating a walkway to your door whilst adding style to the front of your home. No one should have to trample over potentially muddy grass to get into your home, and we don’t think you’d appreciate the footprints either.

You can do a lot of this yourself, but we recommend Actual Landscapes for all of your gardening needs. Actual Landscapes specialises in designing and building beautiful gardens, as well as creating fantastic looking driveways, decking and even fishponds.

Light The Place Up

You should be proud of your home, and throwing in some outdoor lighting can highlight your hard work perfectly.

Outdoor lighting can give your home and garden a completely different feel once the sun goes down, and can be a perfect excuse for keeping the BBQ going a little longer.

Framing your front door and pathway with a set of beautiful lights can also provide a lovely atmosphere for people arriving at your home. Who doesn’t want that?

For the perfect outdoor lighting set up, we recommend Garden Lighting By Design. Garden Lighting By Design is a company that specialises in the design and installation of beautiful, tailor made lighting systems for gardens and outdoors spaces.

Surround In Style

Having a beautiful, well maintained outdoors space is useless if you have old, worn out fences or a creaky gate. It’s time for an upgrade.

Fencing can be a fantastic way to frame your property and can provide a warm, homely look. You don’t have to settle for the standard look either, with many different designs and patterns out there for you to choose from.

While the classic wooden look may be the staple for a lot of fencing, this isn’t the only colour you can get your hands on. If you have a strong black or white theme going on throughout your garden, then why not extend it to the fencing? Better yet, why not get your paintbrush out and match your fence to your garden furniture?

As we’ve previously talked about, your front garden is the first point of contact for people visiting your home and they shouldn’t have to barge through an old, stiff gate to get to it. It might be time to ditch the classic metal gate in favour for a wooden gate, to keep the theme going with your brand new fencing.

For the ultimate fencing installation experience, we recommend Dee Fencing. Dee Fencing specialises in the design and installation of fencing and gates, and offers their help in turning your outdoors space into something you can be proud of.

Invest In Premier Garage Doors

We might be a little biased, but one of the best ways of completely transforming the outside of your home is by installing roller shutter doors on your garage (specifically Premier Garage Doors).

Installing a new garage door will enhance the look and feel of your home, as well as provide extra security and insulation for those cold, winter nights. Having a garage door powered by a remote controlled system means that the door operates in a quiet and automatic manner, so you don’t have to worry about the noise.

As well as improving the overall appearance of your home, installing a set of Premier Garage Doors can also increase the value of your home.

There is no need to worry about the colour either, as you can choose the colour of your door from our extensive range of colours. We can even match it up to your front door, making it easier to achieve a uniform look across the whole house.
