Revamping Your House Exterior

We all like to imprint our individual style onto the interior of our home, but it’s all too easy to forget that it’s the house exterior that creates that all important first impression.

In the latest A&J Painters blog post, we take a look at ways to revamp your house exterior to make the most of the space you have available.

Create a Focal Point

It’s your home, so why not express your individual style? A focal point may be created by the installation of a water feature on the front lawn, a row of hardy potted plants, specially shaped bushes or a trellis that runs along the main wall or around your door. There are multiple ways to create a stand out feature of your house exterior and in doing so you can ensure your home stands out for all the right reasons. What’s more, a focal point allows you to put your own mark on your front garden, whether you have a tiny patch of stones or metres of well-maintained grass.

Update the Paintwork

Pretty pastel houses don’t have to remain a feature of seaside homes, and many people up and down the country are now seeing the benefits of updating their exterior paintwork. There’s no doubt that chipped and peeling paint looks unattractive and unkempt. If you decide to give the exterior of your home a fresh lick of paint, be sure to seek advice from those with experience. A slight gust of wind and an untrained hand can end up causing big problems.

Create a Border

When you create a border around the exterior of your home, you separate it from both your neighbours’ and the rest of the street, ensuring that any mess or overgrown gardens do not over shadow your own home. Further to this, a border allows you to see exactly how much space you have available and prevents others from walking over your garden, something particularly helpful if you live on the corner of the street.
