How To Give The Front Of Your Home A Spring Facelift

Cast your mind back to the very first time you saw your home in the flesh. At a guess it got you extremely excited otherwise you would not have bought it.

Be honest – do you still get that same sensation now?

If the answer is no then you need to do something about it and refreshing the appearance of its front exterior will definitely help.

Spring into action with our top makeover tips

  1. Fit a new front door

A dilapidated front door can on its own spoil the entire look of the front of your house.

When wear and tear begins to show on an old wooden door forget about trying to revive it by repainting and varnishing (click here for qualified painters) – it will only temporarily mask how dated it is.

Fit a brand new UPVC, composite, aluminium or timber door for a stylish door solution that withstands weathering and the ageing process.

  1. Maintain your garden

For some people this will feel like something of a chore, but maintaining your garden on a regular basis is imperative.

Invest in some quality garden accoutrements – rake, wheelbarrow, spade, brush, strimmer and mower – and keep on top of things.

Remember to also remove any unsightly weeds that appear so that they don’t take the shine off a luscious lawn. According to, pest control is very important in maintaining your garden, apart from removing weeds.

  1. Add a porch

When your home lacks a bit of character you can always install a porch that suits the property’s architectural styling to enhance its personality.

A porch is also useful for storing items that you may need when exiting the house – coats, scarves, hats, shoes etc.

Just check before going ahead with a patio installation that the proposed design is a “permitted development” as this way you won’t need to apply for planning permission.

Think about the added value of improving your home’s frontage

Keeping your entranceway elegant will make your home more valuable and help entice potential buyers when looking to sell up. That should be all the motivation you need to give it your attention.
