Is your home the only one on the block without any pizzazz?
If you’re tired of a ho-hum exterior, you can make a change without smashing your budget. Here are 5 simple tips to take your home from “where?” to “wow!”
1. Replace the siding
Dingy, old siding can age your home, making it appear weathered, worn and unappealing. Replacing damaged or old siding with brand new can enhance the beauty of your home immensely. White Oak Construction has been replacing siding for more than 40 years and can help you transform your home. All siding from White Oak has a lifetime warranty, ensuring your investment is protected for years and years to come.
2. Paint the trim
Paint is one of the most affordable and easiest ways to enhance the outer beauty of your home. A quick trip to the hardware store and a few cans of paint can make a world of difference in the eye-catching ability of your residence. Touch of the trim with the same color it’s already painted, or really go for it and makeover the exterior with a whole new trim color. Either way, your home will suddenly have a whole new look!
3. Make over your door
Doors aren’t always something homeowners consider when enhancing curb appeal, but the front door can truly make or break their home’s overall look. A fresh coat of paint and a good cleaning can make a difference, but a brand-new door can really level up the front of the house. Consider replacing an old, worn out door with a brand new one from the experts in doors and more, White Oak Construction.
4. Add lighting
Lighting is a fun option for those who want their home to pop, even at night. Outdoor lights are not only great for safety, but they also can highlight certain outdoor features of the home. Lighting underneath trees and landscaping can illuminate the stunning greenery and flowers long after the sun has gone down. Lighting along the exterior trim of the house and on the porch can also add a sophisticated touch that’s surprisingly affordable.
5. Fresh paint
We mentioned how painting the trim can deepen the natural beauty of your home, but don’t forget about painting the entire house. This will usually require a professional, but going from one hue to another can alter the look and feel of any home, and is usually worth the investment.
