3 Tips to Improve Your Exterior Décor

Even before someone sets foot inside a property, the exterior décor is what will always create that all important first impression in their mind. As you can imagine, that can be either advantageous or disadvantageous, depending on the property’s condition.

Your property’s exterior decor is not just about aesthetics either, because how it looks will have a direct impact on its real estate value. It is quite possible that your home’s exterior décor already checks the right boxes but do check out the points below to just ensure that you have not missed out on anything.

Make Your Outbuildings Part of the Landscape Décor

Whether it’s the carport, a separate garage, the woodshed, or the tool shed, if a building is on your property, it’s a part of your landscape. However, homeowners often forget to include their outbuildings as part of their exterior decoration plans. Consequently, the structures will end up looking like they don’t belong. Just check the roof on top your main building and then take a look at the corrugated roofing sheets that are most likely serving as roofs for your outbuildings.

Does it feel like the rusty shed can use a new roof, or perhaps the bright metal corrugated roofing sheets are in harsh contrast to the beautiful red clay tiles on your main building? What about the corrugation grooves? Do your main roof’s custom grooves look even remotely related to the factory standard generic grooves on that carport shed? Whatever the oddity maybe, if it feels like a mismatch, then that’s most likely because it is.

Acknowledge this fact and start replacing those old, corrugated roofing sheets with new plastic roof sheets instead. For example, the classic polycarbonate sheet is available in a wide range of colours and designs, allowing homeowners to work with more versatile options while planning their exterior décor. Visit the Clear Amber Shop to sort through all your options in not just plastic roofing sheets, but also corrugated roofing sheets made from other materials as well.

A Fresh Coat of Paint

Painting the entire exterior property can be quite expensive, but it might be necessary at times. However, you do not need to do it all at once. Start with one exterior wall at a time if the main building is in need to of repainting. Provided that the main building’s paintjob is still going well, focus on the outer structures to see if any of them cannot be repainted to better suit the landscape’s overall theme. If needed, learn a bit of DIY work to build a new outbuilding by yourself, or just hire a contractor to bring your vision to life.

Tidy Beats Fancy

A simple, lush green lawn of well-mowed grass, a few flowering shrubs, and a well-maintained big tree or two is more desirable and aesthetic than a grand garden that has lost its grandeur due to a lack of regular maintenance. Don’t invest in items that you know will be harder to maintain in pristine condition down the line.

We cannot predict the future of course, but we should know when it is time to downsize the landscaping and focus on keeping things tidier. Mow the grass, get rid of dead, dying and/or infected plants, remove weeds, and keep the garden decor as simple and tidy as you can for the time being. If garden maintenance is proving to be too much for now, potted plants, planters, and hanging gardens are both beautiful and much easier to manage.
