Make your house look younger

Does your home need a some updating? Maybe you’re getting ready to sell or maybe you just want a little face lift so you can enjoy the benefits of a newer looking home. We recently came across these great tips to make your house look younger!

Here are five ways to make your house look younger:

1. Focus on the Front Doorhouse look younger

Your front door is literally the gateway to your home, so dress it up. First, repair and replace any old or tarnished door hardware. Then clean off any dirt from the door’s exterior and add a fresh layer of paint. Your door will appreciate the royal treatment.

2. Touch Up Exterior Paint

For people, old age brings wisdom and experience. Not so much when it comes to exterior paint. Ignoring worn-out paint exposes your siding to the elements, which can cause warping and sun or water damage. Take a walk around the house and look for chipping, flaking or peeling paint. If you see any, do a quick touch up with your home’s original paint colors.

3. Trim Back Trees and Bushes 

This is one of the best things you can do to give your home a fresh face. Taking a little time to trim and prune your trees and hedges is a lot like giving your house a hip, new haircut! Plus, it prevents damage to existing plants and encourages healthy growth for future foliage.

4. Add Symmetry to Your Porch

Have you ever heard that a beautiful face is often defined by symmetrical features? The same goes for your front porch! Try adding a few potted plants or outdoor accents to both sides of your doorway. Also, make note of the color combinations you’re choosing for wreaths, doormats and outdoor light fixtures. The colors you decorate with should all work together in upping your curb appeal ante.

5. Keep a Clean Walkway

Besides the front door, your walkway and driveway are the first things guests will see when they visit. Grab a bristled broom and do a quick sweep of any dirt, debris or pollen that has settled on your stepping stones. If you have a few nasty blemishes on your driveway from oil and grease stains, they can be cleaned up with cat litter and laundry detergent.
