Often we spend our time and money improving the inside of our homes. After
all, that is where our lives typically happen.

 

However, it is equally important to give the outside of your home the
attention and care it deserves. This is the part of your house that sets
the stage for what’s inside. Neighbors see it daily, but most importantly:

 

You come home to it each day, so it should welcome you and make you feel
good.

 

Here are five ways to make your beloved home more curb-appealing:

 

1. Spruce Up the Front Door

 

Your front door is your home’s welcome to the world. From changing out the
hardware to applying a fresh coat of paint, there are plenty of ways to
make this space more inviting. If your door has simply seen better days, it
might be time for a new door altogether.

 

2. Replace Rotted Wood

 

Your home’s exterior might require more extensive changes to look appealing
again. Sometimes damage to the exterior includes rot that detracts from
your home’s beauty and devalues its market price. Replacing rotted areas
can go a long way toward getting your home back in shape.

 

3. Repair the Roof

 

This tip is simple enough: Replace shingles and get the gutters in shape so
they will look better and protect your home as they should.

 

4. Apply a Coat of Paint

 

Nothing changes the look of your home’s exterior like a fresh coat of
paint. Whether classic or bright, be sure you love the color – remember,
you’ll be coming home to it every day!

 

5. Fix Porches and Decks
Finally, fixing decks, patios, or porches can lend your home a welcoming
feel. Doing so will also make them safer to enjoy with your family.
