Exterior renovations5 Ideas To Beautify Your Home's Exterior

Although summer is drawing to a close, it’s never too late to plan how to decorate the exterior of your home. Whether it’s a new construction project or you’re the owner of an apartment, you have several options to refresh your exterior. 

Without having to pay a huge sum of money, it’s easy to create your little paradise with simple and practical ideas. These ideas are practical and easy to create, without breaking the bank.

5 simple and affordable ideas to improve your home’s exterior

1- Refresh exterior paint

If this is a possibility for you, refreshing the exterior surfaces of your home is a simple solution, but one with a significant impact. If you’re feeling daring, vibrant and original colour will get you out of your comfort zone while beautifying your home. On the other hand, neutral colours will give a distinguished effect.

If you prefer a more discreet look, painting your door or your window frames is an excellent alternative that offers your facade a little facelift. If you have a front porch or patio, this is another option you may consider.

2- Endless greenery

When springtime comes, take your front garden to another level by introducing different plants and flowers that can add life to your land. If you live in an apartment, your front or rear balcony is not exempt. 

You can build a few flower boxes, hanging plants, grow a garden and so forth. Let your imagination run wild! Create your little secret garden. Check out the following articles for more tips and ideas:

3- Ambient lights

By adding light garlands to your patio, balcony or pergola, you will create perfect mood lighting when your friends and family come over, whether for a few cocktails or for dinner.

For more of an impact in the front of your home, a few lanterns along your entrance path will illuminate your facade and offer a flamboyant look to your lot. Several lanterns are easy to install by simply poking them directly into your lawn.

4- Relaxation area

Perfect for smaller balconies, a relaxation area is filled with cushions and accessories, which will live perfectly alongside your plants and a stellar way to impress guests. For more privacy, add a trellis to your balcony bars to complete your cocoon. 

This project is just as feasible for homeowners. It’s easy to replicate a similar atmosphere on a back patio, but it’s also possible to make a separate space in your backyard. A few patio tiles, an installation to protect you from the rain, a comfortable layout and voila!

5-  Floating chairs

In addition to your comfort corner, installing hanging chairs can be the perfect touch to complete your project. By hanging two of them side by side, or pairing them with an outdoor chair of similar material, you’ll have an ideal place to sit in the sun with friends. 

However, it’s essential to make sure that you can hang things from the ceiling of the balcony, making sure the weight can be supported. For this reason, we’d suggest getting help from a certified contractor who can tell you if this option is available to you. 

If you can’t hang these from the ceiling, other versions have chairs suspended on legs. Regardless of your setup, you can enjoy this option.
