Replace Your Windows And Doors
One way that you can make a big difference to not only the outside look of your home but also its efficiency is to replace old windows and doors with modern uPVC ones. You can get these in a variety of different colours and designs, to suit most tastes. The one drawback about this idea is that it can be expensive, even if you have the skills to fit them yourself. Although these types of windows and doors need very little maintenance when compared with wooden ones, the colours can still fade after a while and start to look drab and tired, even if the units themselves are fully functional.

Paint Your Windows And Doors
One alternative to replacing your windows and doors is to paint them, although this is a lot trickier than painting normal wooden ones and as such, you may be best using the services of a professional. So how much does uPVC painting cost? It is impossible to give an exact cost to this, as it all depends on how many windows and doors you have. However, it is safe to say that this would probably cost you about a third of the price to replace them. You can transform the exterior of your home and have your windows and doors looking brand new, for a fraction of the cost of replacing them!
Give Your Garden A Makeover
Another thing that you can do which will transform how the outside of your home looks is to give your garden a makeover. There are many things that you can do such as planting trees and bushes, nice looking flowers, and even relaying the grass lawn. You could even build a patio or decking which will not only look good but also give you a practical living area outside of your home that you can utilise during the warmer summer months. The cost for this can vary, depending on what you do to your garden, one good thing though is that you can do a lot of the work yourself which could end us saving you a few quid!
Have A Clean And Tidy Up
If you do not have a budget to do any of the above, then there is one last option that is open to you, and that is having a tidy up of the outside and giving everything a good clean. Clean up all the mess and store things properly in either your garage or your shed. You can also get a power washer or a steam cleaner and clean off all the paths, as well as the outside of your home. You may be surprised at how much of a difference a little elbow grease can make in transforming the exterior of your home.
These are just a few ways that you can make a difference in how the outside of your house looks, but they are not the only options that you have available. Look at the Readers Digest website for lots more ideas, and you can make your home the envy of all your neighbours in no time at all.
