They say that you can tell a lot about a person by just looking at their home so what does your home say about you? 

It is important to have an attractive interior but the exterior of your home is the first thing people see, so you should try to make the right first impression. If you want to increase your home’s kerb appeal, it can be difficult to know where to start. 

No need to worry, in this article we will take you through a few ways you can wow your guests with the appearance of your home. 

Make a statement with your front door

Your front door is central to the appearance of your home so it should be treated as such. The front door you choose has the potential to completely transform the look of your property. So, if your front door isn’t doing your home justice, it may be time to replace it. 

But before you do, let’s talk about colour. The colour of your front door should reflect your personality and achieve the aesthetic you desire. The colour you choose should ideally match the character of your home. If it is more traditional, then a Chartwell green front door will give a country feel perfect for this style of property. However, if you want to be bold with colour then a bright yellow front door will make your home stand out against the rest whilst creating a warm and inviting entryway. 

Upgrade your windows

When it comes to increasing the kerb appeal of your home, your windows play an important role but are often forgotten about. If your current windows are old and a bit worse for wear, replacing them will revamp the look of the whole exterior. Not sure which window style to choose? With so many different ones available, it has never been easier to find the window to match your home’s character. Take sliding sash windows, for example, this style of window is the perfect choice for period and traditionally-styled properties. Whichever style you choose, new windows will undoubtedly refresh the look of your home. 

Revamp your front garden

You may have spent time and money on the exterior of your property but if your front garden is neglected and overgrown, all this work will be for nothing. We’re not saying that you need to invest in a gardener but just keeping on top of your front garden will go a long way. Regularly cutting your lawn and a few planted flowers here and there don’t sound like much but will definitely make a real difference. There is a lot of fun to be had with gardening, by giving your front garden some needed attention, you may find your newest hobby. 

As you can see, there are a number of ways to increase the kerb appeal of your home. For the biggest change to the appearance of your home, however, we recommend new windows or a new front door. But not just any windows or doors will do, it is important to choose them from a trusted window or door supplier.
