Owning a home has its perks. One of the perks involves the ability to customize the design to your liking. Sure, you may live in a home with a strict HOA. However, there are always fun things you can do to personalize your home and make it look beautiful from the outside. If you’re scratching your head regarding what changes need to take place, consider trying these three ideas first.
1. Window & Door Decor
Windows and exterior doors are great places to display your personal style. The best way to make a decorative statement is through the colors you choose. If you have shutters, paint them a complementary color to the door. A growing trend in design involves homes with brightly colored doors. Colors like bright yellow, red and cobalt blue are great options. A great way to decorate the doors involves wreaths. Door wreaths aren’t for Christmas time alone. You can create wreaths for each season. For example, a spring wreath filled with tulips would be beautiful. A summer wreath filled with greenery, twine and sunflowers would make a nice, bold statement. For fall, choose a wreath decorated with fall leaves and mums. If you’re not crazy about wreaths, consider trying the first letter of the family name and hanging it from the door. Don’t be afraid to get creative and push the envelope.
Landscape design Jacksonville is quite the task. Gardening, planting flowers and figuring out the design are all rewarding yet very time-consuming. A landscape designer has tons of experience in different settings and can create the most complimentary design for your home. Don’t be afraid to go online and look at landscaped homes that inspire. Bookmark a few of them and show them to your designer. This is helpful for reference, but ultimately your designer will create and customize a beautiful layout that works perfectly for your home.
Lighting makes a big difference in a space. Even though more people see a home during the daylight hours, there will be times when people visit at night. It is always nice to have a beautiful curb appeal at any time of day. In this case, line the walkway of your home with beautiful lighting. It is considerate of your guests. It also looks uniformed and professional. It gives off the clear impression that you care about your property and in return, you treat it well.
It may be a good idea to handle this project one step at a time. Don’t try to do all three ways at one time. As you finish one project, it will give you inspiration for the next one.
