May 3, 2016

 

 

With summer quickly approaching, creating a new look for your front or backyard can give you incentive to spend time outside. Designing a new look and adding curb appeal to your home doesn’t have to cost a lot of time or money. If you’re looking for an easier way to do an exterior home remodel, check out our five favorite projects to remodel your home.

  1. Paint Your Door

Painting your door can add a pop of color to your home’s exterior as well as provide harmonizing colors to the rest of your yard. Though painting your door is a relatively easy project, you will need more than a paint and brush to get the job done. First, you’ll need to remove the door. If your door is older and wooden, you’ll need to sand down and use a primer to get an even coat. Before painting the exterior door a new color, make sure to wipe away all of the dust!

  1. Make Your Address More Apparent

If you love hosting parties, having a noticeable plaque for your address will help guests find your home. There are many DIY options for this, but if you’re looking for an easier option, most home improvement stores sell number plaques that can be personalized to your address.

  1. Spruce Up Your Garden

There are countless tips for gardening on Pinterest and so many DIY projects to create a new garden for your home. Whether it’s creating your own cement planters, or repurposing an old wheelbarrow, a new garden doesn’t have to be planted in your yard.

  1. Finish off Your Spring Cleaning

Winter is a great time for putting off outdoor projects, but it’s spring now. That means it’s time to get out the list. Whether it’s refinishing your deck, fixing a board in your fence, or simply pulling up weeds, checking items off will make your home look better.

  1. Fix Up The Path to Your Front Door

There are many ways to accomplish this task. Adding curb appeal to your pathway could be as simple as adding exterior lights to the side or planting foliage to make your pathway more distinct. If you’re looking for a slightly more complicated option, consider adding pavers or stone to create a pathway with character.
