Exterior Home Improvements

This is a sponsored post.

When you talk about home improvement, do not forget the exterior. We often think of kitchen or bathroom remodels to improve the appearance of our home interior, but the exterior needs love, too.

Exterior improvements help boost your home's value and curb appeal. A new roof, whether it be a shingle roof or a metal roof will definitely bring those buyers in, if you are trying to sell.  It will also boost your home's value.  I must admit, I am a huge fan of a metal roof.  I love the sound of rain on a metal roof, not to mention that a metal roof lasts a lot longer.

What about a porch or deck? You can add some wow factor to your house by adding a deck. Decks and Docks Lumber Company offers everything you need to build that awesome deck you have dreamt of for years. When you have a deck, you have more living space.  There is nothing like having your morning coffee while sitting on your deck or enjoying a meal.  The possibilities are endless.  Adding some livable outdoor space is so appealing.

I think my favorite area of exterior improvements is landscaping.  There are so many things you can do to make your exterior look aesthetically appealing.  Trees, flowers, bushes shrubs are a few that come to mind.  If you live in an area where big rocks or stones are available, this make a great way to add value to your landscaping project.  You can even have a vegetable garden in your backyard!

Another great exterior project is a pool or hot tub.  These bring added value to your home and is a great source of entertainment for the whole family. There are so many choices at so many price points, this type of exterior improvement is easy to do.  And, wouldn't you love a cool in ground pool and a hot tub?  I know I would. Those two items are on my bucket list.

Another one of my dreams to go along with the pool and hot tub is an outdoor kitchen.  Everyone loves to entertain outside and having that kitchen outdoors is so convenient.  No more running in and out the door to cook and serve your guests!

There are some simple and inexpensive ways to show off your home's exterior.  Add some planters at your front door.  This can take an entryway from blah to wow with very little investment.  A simple wreath can add flair to your front door. Adding simple or elegant wall sconces bring an ambiance to your home and can be done relatively inexpensively.  Another inexpensive way to add to your homes exterior is a simple idea.  paint your front door a contrasting color to add a pop of color to your home.

There are so many ways to improve the appearance of your home's exterior.  Whether it be a budget savvy project or one that involves more expensive materials, it is always a great way to increase the value of your home.  You can find so many ideas simply by searching on Pinterest.
