As we approach the warmer season, most of us will feel more inclined to head out of the house and spend time in our gardens. When you spend a lot more time outside your house, you will start to notice small niggling issues with your home exterior. Things such as cracks in your brickwork, chipping paint on the fences, or encroaching weeds in the patio.
Now is the perfect time to get outside and start working on your home exterior – getting those annoying jobs done now so that you can truly enjoy your outdoor space in the summer. Today we are going to talk about a few different ways you can spruce up the outside of your home for the summer season.
Paint the walls
If you have plastered over the brickwork of your home or even wood panels – why not consider a fun change this year and paint the exterior of your home? You can keep it plain and simple with a bright white look – or venture a little on the fun side with a pastel blue or yellow. There are lots of brilliant ideas for the exterior of your home which will vamp up the space and make your home feel brand new.
Paint the front door
If you don’t want to commit to changing the whole colour of your home you can choose instead to stick to the front door. The front door is a focal point of your home from the street and if you have a wooden one, you can paint this sing gloss paint to vamp it up. A stunning colour would be red, and also royal blue can be a common choice for this feature of the home.
Pressure wash the driveway
Pressure washing experts can make your life so much easier if the front driveway to your home is dirty and grimy. You’d be surprised the level of dirt that can build up over the years and being able to get rid of this in an hour or two will make a huge impact on your space. Consider ringing in the professionals to clean your driveway as well as your patio this week and it will make your home look and feel brighter.
Rid weeds from your patio
One of the most annoying parts of the summer season is the rapid growth of weeds between your paving stones at the front and the back of the house. It is so important for you to get on top of these as quickly as you can because they can be a real pain if left to root and grow. Start off by using a weed whacker to chop off the tops of the weeds from the ground, and then once you have done this apply some salt to the area above the roots and this will kill off the roots and stop them coming back. Once done, you should be able to pull out anything dry and dead and your patio will be restored!
