You often hear about the importance of curb appeal on not only the impression it makes to your guests but also to the perceived and real value of your home. And who doesn’t want to drive up to their home each day and feel proud and welcome. Exterior remodels are unique in that not only are they projects that you and your family can enjoy, but that the neighbors can enjoy as well! Many exterior projects can completely transform the look of your home. Some popular exterior renovations include:
- Front entry doors
- Exterior trim
Exterior remodels aren’t limited to the front of the home. Enhancing outdoor living space is more popular today than ever. Outdoor living spaces can include: screened-in porches, decks, outdoor kitchens, and more. Your backyard can be turned into a relaxing getaway without ever even getting in the car. Whether you have a large area or something a little smaller, creative designs can be incorporated to best leverage your backyard space.
Preparing for your remodel
With any remodel, large or small, it’s important to do a little homework before you begin. Determine the big picture goal of the project. What is it that you’re trying to accomplish? Gather ideas and pictures from magazines and the internet. Make a list of your wants, needs, and priorities. Establish a budget. Determine timeline goals. Is there a particular event for which you’d like to have the exterior façade or space completed? And most importantly, schedule an appointment to get started. Remodeling is not something you want to do on your own. There are so many considerations that having the guidance of an expert will not only make the process easier but also a whole lot more fun.
