Summer is the perfect time of year to give your home some much-needed upgrades. All season long, home improvement and home remodeling companies will be working overtime as homeowners look to refresh their living spaces.
There’s only one thing that might be making you nervous — the price of a home remodeling project. Believe it or not, but you don’t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a siding replacement in order to make your house a little more attractive to the eye — although it’s not a bad idea to consider this if you need new siding, as old, worn siding cuts into your home’s value by 10%.
Want to give your home’s curb appeal a much-needed boost without veering too far out of your budget? There are plenty of ways to increase your house’s aesthetic value for an affordable price. Here are three of the best ways to do so that you should consider this summer:
Get a new front door
Did you know that your front door is often one of the first things people will really notice when viewing your house? A new front door can make the rest of your house look more aesthetically pleasing instantly. As a result, it’s not surprising that this simple home remodeling project boasts an amazing 97.2% return on investment. Simply painting your door a different color can make your house look better to those viewing it from the curb!
Upgrade your siding colors
If you’re still saving up the money for a siding replacement, you can give your house a huge face-lift simply by changing its color. A fresh, modern color will brighten up your home as a whole; it will be like looking at an entirely different dwelling. Best of all? A new coat of paint on your siding will last you about 15 to 20 years on average, meaning this is a great investment to make.
Switch to new house numbers
No, this doesn’t mean changing your home address. By picking up some new metal house numbers from your local hardware store, you can make your house easier to find in addition to more appealing to the eye. In fact, the right style of numbers can help complement your house’s architecture and ultimately improve its resell value.
