First things first.
Get out of the house. No, don’t drive away. Just step out into the curb and look at your house from across the street. From there you’ll clearly see what you’ll need to work on.
- Transform your facade if it’s looking a bit tired. Install or update the stone cladding.
- Landscape your front yard. Maybe some lighting and a new stone path are all you need.
Now, maybe your back yard needs some work, too. Here are a few useful ideas.
- Create a focal feature. You can add a fire pit if your family likes gathering outside.
- Add a trellis for that cottage home garden look.
You can also make home life much more comfortable by doing these tricks one area at a time.
