There’s nothing better than spring’s arrival after a long winter! This past winter has felt particularly endless with a deluge of epic snowstorms and cold temps. If you’ve been daydreaming about relaxing on the patio, cooking dinner on the grill, and admiring fresh flowers, you’ve come to the right place! Scroll below for our list of spring home exterior updates to get out in the fresh air, improve your home’s curb appeal, and increase its overall value.
Upkeep and Maintenance
Spring is synonymous with cleaning for a reason; winter’s hibernation, slush, and snow leave behind a mess! April and May are ideal for getting outside to clear out the yard and take stock of your home’s exterior. Check walkways, paths, gutters, chimneys, the roof, and your driveway for any safety concerns or needed repairs.
Have you spent the winter daydreaming about giving your home a design refresh? Harsh midwest winters can take a serious toll on your exterior, leaving things looking faded, dated, or damaged. Consider replacing exterior light fixtures, updating your house numbers, and repainting or replacing your siding to give your home a new look.
It’s always a good time to lower your bills, right? If your windows, doors, or heating/cooling system are getting old, you could be throwing money down the drain each month. Design technology has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years! New doors, windows, a thermostat, or an HVAC system are an investment in your home’s value and your future comfort.
Curb Appeal and Landscaping
Curb appeal is about more than looking good; a well-maintained, beautiful exterior increases home equity. These updates might feel superficial, but they build lasting value! A home with an excellent exterior also makes a strong first impression. What we see shapes our feelings; manicured landscaping and an orderly exterior make people feel welcome.
Hosting and Outdoor Spaces
Outdoor spaces are an excellent way to improve your home’s overall value. These projects are such a win; they boost curb appeal, add livable space, and create spaces for hosting family and friends.
