You may not realize it, but the exterior of your home is just as important as the interior. A home that that is perfectly landscaped, and cleanly painted and maintained, can draw the attention of any passerby, but no one can see how beautifully you have decorated your house unless you extend an invitation.
For this reason, many homeowners invest in specific plants, accessories, and even furniture to enhance their yard’s curb appeal.
Here are a few things you can do give your house a visual pop.
- Gazebos. When you juxtapose an expertly crafted gazebo with green grass, and brightly-colored flowers, your yard’s appearance will be enhanced tenfold. Gazebos comes in several different sizes, stains, and finishes, and you can pick the hue that best suits your house, as well. Wooden garden gazebos pair well with nature, and give your lawn a touch of elegance at the same time. Some of these structures even come with pueblo-style roofing, if you want to spice up the design.
- Decorative Fences. When you think of 1950’s homes, the image of white picket fences may come to mind. While this style is not necessarily the look you want, erecting a fence around your yard could give it a more regal look. Older churches, such as the Westminster Abbey, have decorative fence designs that enclose the property without compromising their aesthetics. You could have custom metal fencing done for your home, using materials that compliment your house’s colors.
- Outdoor Patios and Decks. You may feel like building a deck or patio will be too expensive, but it can add significant resale value to your home. In addition, Remodeling Magazine reports that homeowners can recover about 85% of the money spent on building a deck during resale. Buyers are always looking for homes with extra features and perks, and having a deck not only gives your entire home an updated, desirable look, but it will likely make your house stand out in your neighborhood.
As the summer approaches, you will want to get a start on your lawn as soon as possible. By adding these elements to your yard, you will be upping your home’s curb appeal significantly, and you may even make your neighbors a little jealous.
