Don't move - improve! If you're looking for some inspiration when it comes to the outside of your home, our team of experts are here to help. Read on for their top three tips and tricks that can transform the exterior facade of your home at any budget.
Brighten up the brick
Professional exterior brick paint stores will blend shades exactly to your requirements and the choice of colour is huge. Earth tones are gorgeous and offer a timeless quality to any building facade. Always check with the paint manufacturer that it is a breathable paint before applying to surfaces and be sure to check if you need planning permission before you start!
Front door charm
This is the main entrance to your property and it’s the perfect place to add some character to your front facade. If repainting, don’t be afraid to sample colours and try before you buy. Think about replacing door hardware such as handles, letterboxes, door knockers as these will give an instant upgrade to any entry way.
Ugly house to lovely house
If the outside of your property really needs revamping and only a thorough transformation will do, think about how cladding might improve its appearance. Not only does cladding provide an opportunity to change the way a building looks, it can add extra protection from the elements also. Consider a thermally modified wood for a sustainable choice.
