Entering a New Year gives many people the urge to change the look and feel of their home. One way to accomplish this is to give your home’s exterior a fresh, new look. However, after exhausting your budget on the holiday you may be a little reluctant to take on such a refresh. Well, we have some ways you can do it without spending a small fortune.
Three simple but effective ideas that don’t take much time, either.
- Exterior Home Design Tip: Installing Decorative Window Film
Decorative window film is a simple alternative to etched or stained glass. It can enhance the look of your windows and provide some extra privacy at the same time. Although etched and stained glass is beautiful, it can also be very expensive. Artisan glass is also very nice, but expensive. A window film can give you a similar look, and the privacy you want, at a fraction of the price.
With window film, you also have the freedom to change up the patterns and colors when the mood strikes you, without too much additional expense. Decorative film is a fantastic temporary or permanent exterior home design idea to jazz up the glass and give your exterior a new look.
- Home Exterior Idea: Give Your House a Bath
Pressure washing the exterior of your home makes it sparkle. Just like anything else that’s constantly exposed to the elements, your home can get dirty, and sometimes you don’t even notice because it happens so gradually over time. A thorough pressure wash can yield some surprising results, especially if it’s been several months, or years, since the exterior has been cleaned.
Pressure washing is also an excellent preventative measure against things like mold and rot. When dirt or mud stays on the surface of your home for a long time, it can become a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus. This can eventually lead to structural damage. Pressure washing loosens and removes debris and bacteria, safeguarding your home.
