Our home’s exterior should tell people a little something about us. When you step out into your yard and take a look at your home, does it have that curb appeal that you desire? How does it stack up against other homes in your neighborhood?
When people look at a house, there are four things that make an instant and influential impact on the look and feel that house makes on them. Let’s take a look at how each of these loudly and boldly affects the curb appeal of your home.
The feature of any home that often speaks the loudest is the siding. If your siding needs painted, repaired, or replaced, it is going to make your home look aged and unkempt. On the other hand, a quality siding like Hardie Board siding in Detroit Lakes is going to make your home look rich and sophisticated. Fiber cement siding is also durable and virtually maintenance-free giving it even more appeal than just curb appeal.
Your roof accounts for as much as 40% of your home’s overall appearance and impact. This is why choosing good roofers in Detroit Lakes is so important. Your roof is only as good as its installation so always choose expert installation.
Your roofing color choice should complement your siding and the other roofs in your neighborhood. There are tons of roofing material choices and each one has their benefits. No roof is simply beautiful on its own but when paired with the right features, such as siding and doors, your roof can make a big impact on the beauty of your home.
The windows in your home can make a statement al their own. Large windows are particularly eye-catching and aptly-placed windows can make your home appear balanced and harmonious. Adding display windows, such as bay windows or custom design windows, are a great way to make your home look stunning even when you have a smaller home improvement budget.
The entry door to your home welcomes people in a way that no other home improvement feature can. In its own way, your front door tells the world a story about the people who live there.
It is said that your front door speaks a specific message about you. Such as, if your door is painted red or has an intricate design, it tells people that you are bold and not afraid to express yourself. If your front door is blue or sleek and simple, it communicates that you are easy-going and the energy in your home is calm and peaceful. If your front door is black, well, that’s a classic. You’re telling them that you are a traditionalist and have strong community values.
