No matter how beautifully you decorate the inside of your home, the exterior serves as the first impression for guests and passersby. This year, as you prepare for spring cleaning indoors, freshen up the outside of your home too with the help of TrueSon Exteriors. Not sure where to start? Here’s a few of our favorite ways to add curb appeal.
Easy Tips for Increasing Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Install a new front door.
The front entry is one of the most heavily used areas of your home, where you and your guests enter and exit many times per day. Instead of layering another coat of paint on your old front door, invest in a new one that will give your home a fresh look. TrueSon offers front doors to match any architecture, from classically beautiful to strikingly modern styles. We can match your door with the wood used throughout your home, with choices including walnut, pine, mahogany, oak and alder. These types of wood are safe and secure, but also add beauty to your home.
Instead of opting for a standard pre-hung option from a home supply store, trust the TrueSon team to install a custom-fit door that has been sized precisely for your entry. By allowing professionals to complete the installation, you ensure that your door will be perfectly fitted, maximizing energy efficiency and keeping your climate-controlled air sealed indoors.
Replace outdated or dingy hardware.
Highlight your new door by refreshing nearby hardware elements on the front of your home. Replace tarnished house numbers with new ones in a refined material like oiled bronze or brushed nickel to match your door’s lock and handle. Take down an outdated wall-mounted light fixture and install a new, more modern style. By coordinating the materials that are visible on the front of your home, you can create a more cohesive and aesthetically appealing look.
Refresh your landscaping.
If your front yard contains a flowerbed, take a weekend to trim plants of dead branches and limbs. Uproot any dead stumps and replace them with new plants, taking care to plant them at the proper depth in fresh soil. Add fresh mulch that matches with your home’s color scheme for a sophisticated touch. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even add a few potted plants on your front porch or on either side of your front door. Creating symmetry and balance with springy florals creates an eye-catching and inviting look, making your home look well cared for even from the street.
Upgrade your windows.
Windows can be beautiful focal points on your home, enhancing its architecture from the outside and letting in plenty of soft, natural light inside. If you’ve never installed new windows, chances are you’re not maximizing your home’s energy efficiency and it may be time to invest in a customized solution. With windows sized and installed precisely for your home, you’ll notice significant energy savings in the long run because properly insulated windows keep your climate-controlled air sealed indoors, easing the workload for your heating and cooling system.
TrueSon offers endless color and style options in our Energy Star compliant windows, and each window is custom-made and professionally installed to ensure a perfect fit. You’ll love the combination of aesthetic beauty, energy efficiency and affordability that TrueSon windows will bring to your home.
