  • Opening Intro -

    Keeping your outdoor space warm, attractive, and inviting is crucial to improving your home's curb appeal as well as improving its value in the property market.


Unfortunately, we aren’t all gifted with being creative and getting the perfect design for your home can be a bit of a hurdle. We will discuss three home exterior design tips to help you make the most out of your outdoor space and re-ignite the spark in your home.

Create New Spaces with Purposes

Take a look at your outdoor space. Does it feel like you have one large square that is under-utilized? Depending on where it sits, consider setting up a stylish outdoor kitchen, grill, dining area, bar, relaxing bay or kitchen garden.

Create flow and life in the section you decide to go along with, in the large square. It includes similar lighting, furnishings, patterns, and colors. Seek advice from deck builders when looking for the best outdoor furnishings to invest in.

You don’t want the space to be too busy, which might steal the attention and limelight from the main house. The idea here is to have the small outdoor space become part of the main house. Consider establishing a specific purpose for your outdoor space, like you would any other room in your home, to guide you in the design. You might want a deck for outdoor cooking, entertaining, working out, or just unwinding from a day of work.

Add and Soften Hardscapes

If your outdoor space is idle, consider adding hardscapes. However, they can be too cold if your idea of a hardscape is placing large slabs of stone on steps or a patio. Consider going out of the ordinary by planting small crawling plants and leaves around the rock edges.

These natural additions should add some color and warmth to your outdoor space. It’s also a unique design that invites nature to be part of your homestead. You could add a few potted plants and art next to the hardscapes to complete the natural look. Growing ivy over concrete retaining walls can allow you to soften up the landscaping and create a more cozy space as well.

Green up Your Exterior Walls

If you love gardens and green nature, this should be an exciting idea for you. Instead of applying a fresh coat of paint every season, choose decorative crawling foliage or vines with vegetables and fruits. This design tip is an excellent way to develop a formal yet unique look for your exterior space. You could also maximize your garden using your walls. Ensure that you invest in a great anchoring system for the plants to prevent it from destroying the siding and the vertical garden.

Now you have three workable designs to get your outdoor space in shape. Revamp your exterior space today and reward yourself with an inviting space.
