Does your home have kerb appeal?

14/04/2015

When we think about decorating our homes we often focus on the interior, we spend hours looking at paint samples and planning the look that we want to achieve before completing the work. However, what about the outside of your property? It’s just as important to invest in making the exterior of your property look beautiful.

It’s understandable that people underestimate what can be done to raise the kerb appeal of their home, it’s not just about keeping the grass cut or the driveway weed free, although that does help. With the right colour scheme, take a look at the choice of exterior wood colours offered by Little Greene for inspiration, and finishing touches, you can easily make the outside of your home look as exciting and individual as the interior.

Here are some tips and ideas on how to raise the kerb appeal of your home

They blend in with the surroundings and the finished effect is clean and classic and will never go out of style.

 

 

 

Accessories

Kerb appeal is often only talked about when people are looking to sell or rent out their property, however, we think that the look you create for the exterior of your home is just as important as what you do with the interior.
