Whether you’ve recently purchased your home or have been living there for many years, you may be considering a project to modernize your home. Taking on a project like this is a great way to add value to your home and give you pride as a homeowner.
The exterior of your home is an important feature. While you may not think about it every day like you would a kitchen or bathroom, it influences home value, curb appeal and other factors.
The following projects are excellent choices when it comes to cost, added value and the end result. These projects have excellent ROI compared to other projects and make a significant impact on your home.
1. Update Your Garage Door
You use your garage door every day, and usually multiple times a day. The garage door makes your home safer and adds convenience to your daily routine. With so much use, you want a high-quality door that gives your home aesthetic appeal and functionality.
Garage doors are made with a variety of different materials and are available in many different styles and colors that work with any architectural style. If you already have a vision for your new garage door, great! If not, you have a variety of options to choose from. With so many options available, it’s easy to find the right fit for your home.
2. Replace the Front Entry Door
Like the garage door, your front entry door is an essential part of your home’s exterior. Whether you want to please potential buyers, visitors or even yourself, your front entry door establishes the look of your home.
Front entry doors are made from similar materials as garage doors. Like your garage door, you have almost endless possibilities for finding a new entry door. During your search, you may wonder what type of door to choose.
Some homeowners think it’s a rule of thumb to match your front entry door with your garage door. While this may have been a more popular trend in the past, it is certainly not something you have to follow. If you like the way it looks, you can match your entry door to the garage door or shutters.
3. Change Out the Lighting
Replacing or adding to the existing lighting outside of your home increases the functionality of your outdoor spaces and can also make your home safer.
During the warmer months, you can stay outside longer with the right lighting, whether you want to enjoy the night on your own or entertain friends and family. When you’re coming back home or leaving at night, lighting makes it safer to maneuver outside.
