Improving the external appearance of your home

5th Feb '16 • By Emily Ayers

Here are our top tips for improving the external appearance of your building.


The external appearance of any home is one of the key factors in determining its resale value and indeed, the perception of your home by others. A tired, tatty looking home is undesirable and can also reduce the overall feel of a neighbourhood. However, with a few simple improvements your home or rental properties’ appearance can drastically improve and as a consequence increase its selling value.

Work on the Garden

Your front garden is one of the first things people see of your home. Getting your front garden space tidy is the first step towards improving its external appearance and there is much that can be done on even the tightest of budgets. Subtle planting can increase colour and add texture to your front garden. Cut your grass and keep on top of trimming and preening. This will help improve the overall appearance of your home and its appeal to any potential buyers in future.


Upgrade Doors and Windows

The first thing individuals come into contact with when entering your home is the front door. Tatty doors, windows and frames can drag down the overall appearance of your home. Upgrading doors and windows can not only improve energy efficiency levels but also make your home look much fresher. If you haven’t upgraded your doors and windows in the last ten years, this may be a viable option – otherwise, a lick of paint or cleaning up your fittings can have a similar effect on the overall appearance of your home.

Repaint Your Home

There’s much to be said for a quick lick of paint if you want to spruce up the external appearance of your home. With constant exposure to the elements and the passing of time, any building can start to look a little worse for ware. Repaint your home, either yourself or with the help of professional painters for a fresher, more appealing exterior.
