The weather has finally warmed and it is a great time to enjoy your home’s exterior and yard! Make the most of your home’s curb appeal by doing a few improvements. No matter your budget, you can make a big impact with updates to the outside of your home.
If your Budget is Less Than $1,000…
If you have less than $1000 to spend this year, consider a few smaller projects. Painting or replacing your front door will instantly give your home a facelift! Plus, this is one of the few home improvement projects that returns almost 100% when looking at resale value. If you love your front door, then put your money into landscaping. $1000 worth of landscaping can go a long way! Add stone pavers, plant flower beds, refresh your mulch, trim bushes and trees, or construct a charming walkway.
If Your Budget is Between $1,000 and $5,000…
Painting the whole home’s exterior siding, window frames, and soffits will make a huge difference in the curb appeal of your house! It is recommended a home is painted every 5-10 years. Painting can dramatically update the look of your home because popular paint colors change frequently. Beige is out and the modern look is gray!
If Your Budget is $5,000 or More
If you are ready for a big exterior improvement this year, focus on the home’s integrity. Spend your money on a new roof or siding to ensure the house is looking fresh and well-maintained. If your home already has bones that are in good condition, spend your money on new garage doors, a new driveway, or new windows. These improvements make the biggest impact when boosting the value of your home and the curb appeal when neighbors drive by.
Whether you have a lot or a little to spend, it is always worth it to invest in your home! This season, update your home’s exterior with help from the professionals at Minnesota Home Improvements.
