If you have a front porch, lucky you! It’s important to make sure it looks like a place where people want to sit and enjoy your beautiful yard. Update your furniture with comfortable, cleaner-looking options. Depending on the size of the space, you could invest in a sectional, or you could stick to unique-looking chairs and pillows that add a pop of color. Consider investing in furniture covers
to protect your new investments from pollen, dirt, or general wear and tear.
A home can be beautiful on its own, but a lovely outdoor space can take home to the next level. Consider your garden! Are your shrubs tidy? Do you have a variety of plants and flowers? A front garden with texture and layers is eye-catching. Don’t be afraid to get creative with it—gone are the days of boring boxwoods. Consider adding some taller and shorter varieties to vary the landscape. With so many resources
available, it’s time to be your own landscaper.
Sure, windows are functional, but they can also be decorative! Consider adding some unique touches. Shutters come in a variety of durable, low-cost materials (wood, fiberglass, PVC, etc.) and can be dressed up with a complimentary trim. Window boxes are another fun touch. Plant some seasonal flowers, and your home will surely stand out!
Another functional-turned-aesthetic piece? Your home’s gutters. It’s important to prevent them from looking cracked or worn down. Copper gutters, while not the cheapest option, are certainly the prettiest option. Vinyl gutter systems are less expensive and easy to snap together. No matter your budget, keeping the gutters up to date will keep your home sparkling.
A white picket fence is excellent, but you don’t have to invest in a full system to add a touch of decoration. Arbors are a more minimal way to allude to the fence look without going all-in on a fence. Hang some lights on them and use them to complement your garden area. Or, if you’re in the market for a fence, consider adding an arbor to your fence layout. The combination is like putting a big bow on your home.
