Boost Curb Appeal and Change How Being Home Makes You Feel
The perfect place to start maximizing your homes potential is by giving the front exterior a makeover. Afterall, how excited can someone be to sit out on the front porch overlooking views of a cracked driveway and garden full of overgrown weeds. Enjoy spending time out in the front of your home as much as the interior by sprucing up areas that may be in need of some tender loving care, such as:
Transforming the driveway with the latest stamped concrete designs
Removing any weeds and debris from the garden and lawn
Putting up a fresh coat of paint with a pop of colour to the front door and garage door
Washing the street facing windows from the outside
Once you take the front exterior of your home from drab to fab there will be more incentive to enjoy spending time doing things like:
Taking in the visual reminder of your creativity that helped design a unique stamped concrete driveway that shows off the personality of your home (and will always make the best first impression)
Setting up a small table with a couple chairs on the porch to chat with friends and passing neighbours from a safe social distance
Planting and garden tending for some relaxation and tranquility in a proactive way
After giving the front exterior of your home a makeover all that's left to do is embrace how much more time you want spend enjoying that outdoor space.
Transform Your Backyard into an Outdoor Oasis
As we live in the midst of a difficult period in time, the need to escape is probably on a lot of minds. However, with leisure travel currently at a halt, it's time to turn your backyard into a personal oasis style escape instead. There are plenty of amazing ideas to help with a backyard transformation, such as:
Installing an outdoor firepit with seating
Hanging up outdoor string lights so a dark sky no longer calls for going inside
Putting up retaining walls to separate the yard into different sections (like an area to plant a garden, an area to set up an outdoor dining table, and an area to set up lounge chairs or lay down towels to stretch out and safely soak up some vitamin D from the sun)
Best of all, creating an outdoor oasis is the perfect chance to put your DIY skills to the test. Instead of tossing out that old metal flowerpot, try repurposing it into a new firepit instead.
