Are You Beautifying The Front Of Your House?

If you've decided that this is the time to make some changes to the front of your house, you've chosen a good time to do that. It will be especially nice to have a beautiful house when friends and family members come to your house for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's events. From asphalt paving to adding decorative accents, here are some ideas that might help you to create a front yard that could be found in a home and garden magazine.

The Big Picture 

Make an evaluation of the front of your house as it exists now. Think of major things you can do to add interest to your home.

  • For example, do you have the space to include a circular driveway in the front of your house?
  • If so, contact a service that does asphalt paving to get ideas on how to design the driveway.
  • The service might recommend something besides asphalt.
  • For instance, using asphalt for most of the driveway would work great.
  • However, think of using brick for the very front to give it extra drama.

Besides a circular driveway, there are other major things you could do to make the front of your house especially attractive. For example, if you have decided that you don't have the space for a circular driveway, the same paving service might recommend a special design for a walkway that leads to your front door.

Added Beautification Touches 

As you make the evaluation of the front of your house, think of other things that might add interest and beauty. Even things like polishing brass doorknobs and light fixtures will make your house look lovely.

  • For example, do you need to replace the front door?
  • Would new shutters give the house a facelift?
  • Consider adding outdoor lighting to the front of your house.
  • Think of landscaping that could beautify your house.
  • Consider adding something like a multi-tiered water fountain.

With the holidays arriving soon, don't forget little things that add drama to the front of your home. For example, with Halloween coming up, think of buying a Halloween-themed floral wreath. Do the same for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Another idea is to buy a basic wreath with no added ornamentation. Then add things like ghosts, black cats, and witches for a Halloween door; pumpkins, autumn foliage, and little turkeys for a Thanksgiving door; and colorful balls and garland for a Christmas door.
