The start of a new year often signals the need for change or renovations. You might have neglected certain aspects of your home after the festivities are over. It is okay to have a break from DIY work and home improvements over the holidays, but you can’t put things off forever. It is safe to say your house is positively gleaming from head to toe inside, after a much needed interior clean. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the outside. You have already got your home ready for winter in many ways, but have you paid attention to the details? Here is a simple run-down of the things you might be forgetting to tend to!
Windows and Doors
Updating your windows and doors can not only make a huge difference to the insulation of your home, but it can also give it a modern and updated vibe. Have a browse online at the ranges of timber effect windows, which would make the exterior of your home look rather neat. Replacing your windows will positively transform your home from tired-looking to well-treated. Imagine the looks on your nosy neighbours’ faces when they see your new fantastic frames. Why not say goodbye to your old front door too and invest in a new one? There are so many styles to choose from now, so pick something a bit different and make your home stand out from the crowd.
Don’t Forget The Driveway
You use your driveway every single day and more people notice it than you would think. You could consider ordering some new paving stones to give your entire drive a new look. If you’re trying to stick to a budget, why not rent a power washer? There are many reputable companies that will come out and power wash your dirty stones and they will look like they have been completely replaced. Some of the results are really astonishing when you look online at the before and after effects of pressure washing.
Give your garden the tender loving care it deserves and invest in some new furniture. Now is the time to buy new garden accessories as they are all heavily discounted in store. It might not have dawned on you until now, that your garden needs a reboot. After surviving the frosty weather it deserves a little pick me up.
Drains and Pipes Made Perfect
Do your pipe work a favour and give them a clear out. Often over the winter pipes and drains can freeze and become blocked up with dirt and leaves. Dig out your tall ladder from the garage and be prepared to get de-clogging. You will be surprised at the gunk and junk you retrieve from there. It will also make your water run more smoothly, so it is well worth the effort.
Make some changes today and you’ll soon be beaming with pride at your bright and brilliant exterior. Your home will be welcoming from the outside in, so be sure to get your friends and family round to admire your hard work.
