Most homeowners believe that it’s the inside (of the house) that counts. A lacklustre exterior, however, can make such a bad impression on your guests that no amount of interior décor will fix. It makes sense to devote a bit of attention to the exterior appearance of your home, too. A good place to start is the outer walls. Use these creative ideas to make them fabulous:
Invest in weatherboard
More homeowners are becoming increasingly attracted to weatherboard cladding, and for a good reason. Weatherboard profiles offer many benefits that it’s impossible to ever regret investing in them. These make any house incredibly elegant. As weatherboard cladding is highly resistant to harsh weather, your walls stay neat and appealing for ages.
Consider wall art
Who says that wall art should be confined to the indoors? A single piece of art can give character to your outer wall like few other things can. You need not go for something expensive. You could piece together a few pieces of colourful wood, frame them nicely, and nail them to a strategic part of the wall. Of course, the art will need to complement the appearance of the wall.
Use some spray paint
Spray paint is popular among homeowners because it’s something you can do easily by yourself. All you need is a canvas, several colours of spray paint, a painter’s tape, a string, and a chevron stencil. Decide what decorations you’d like on the wall and go ahead with the task. If you cannot seem to get ideas on your own, you could get inspiration from magazines or decor websites.
Plant some vertical gardens
Nothing makes a wall look more at one with nature than succulent gardens on your outer walls. They are incredibly easy to create and maintain. In fact, they require about the same care as your ordinary planters. During extreme weather conditions, you can always take them down.
Don’t let your obsession with the appearance of your indoor space make you miss out on the chance to make a great impression using your home’s exterior. By adding just a few inexpensive decorative features on your wall, you can greatly add to your home’s curb appeal.
