As summer gets into full swing, now is the time to give your kerb-appeal a well appreciated boost. Whether you are looking to give your guests and passers-by that ‘WOW’ factor or considering ways to increase the value of your home before putting it on the market, our blog is packed with helpful tips, tricks, and inspiration for a change to areas that can upgrade your home in an instant.


Refresh your outdoor space with landscaping that complements your home. Trimming back hedges, mowing the lawn, and tidying up garden beds can create a neat appearance in an instant. You could also consider welcoming a set of new plants to your garden. Consider coloured flowerpots to complement the season, or a pair of tall plants to give symmetry to your doorstep.

Front door

Is your front door looking tired? Perhaps it needs some repair work or a makeover? Giving your front door some TLC can give your entire home a facelift. From glazing panels to door furniture, you can restore the life in the front of your property, and a new front door can echo a part of your personality, making your house your home.


Get creative with your outdoor lighting. Illuminating your homes exterior with strategically placed lighting can enhance features that you want to show off, as well as increase security. Solar powered lighting is a fantastic way to achieve the same effect whilst doing your bit for the environment.


In the same way as your door, aging windows are easy to spot. Whether the handles are loose, timber frames are starting to chip, or the glass is beginning to become less sturdy, a replacement can open your home to a brand-new look and feel. Upgrading your glazing and changing your frames can increase security and style in one step.


Creating a porch for your home introduces a new wave of freedom with creativity. Why not stray from the common uPVC porches seen across the country and introduce reliable timber beams either side of your doorstep. Complement these further with the addition of a sturdy cover, lighting, and symmetrical potted plants.
