When it comes to making the outside of our homes look their best most of us tend to focus on the back garden with little thought for the front. The front however is the most ‘seen’ part of the home not just by you but by visitors and people walking past. If the front of your house could benefit from a bit of a makeover here are some ideas that will add instant kerb appeal…
Add some flowers – Flowers are a great way to brighten the place up, and whether you have a large front or a small one, there are plenty of creative ways to add some flowers to the front. If you have room, add some planters to create floral displays, or add some flowerbeds as an edge around the driveway. If you don’t have as much space, then why not put window boxes full of flowers and hanging baskets on the front walls.
Another great way to give your front an upgrade is to add new fencing or gates. This is also good from a security point of view as it will make your home less appealing to intruders. Why not go for it and get some electric gates for the ultimate security, get someone like these electric gate installers Gloucester to fit them for you.
If you have paths or driveways leading to the front door then make sure that they are clean and weed free. Get a pressure washer to remove the dirt and put weed killer in the cracks where the weeds grow through.
