Home exteriors are the first view that visitors or passers-by see when they come to your property. It’s also a great way to express your style and personality without spending much on furniture or decorating. There are many ways to decorate your home’s exterior, but we’ve put together 8 ideas to help get you started. 

1) Cool Roofs

Cool roofs increase the energy efficiency of your home. They reflect heat and UV rays, reducing air conditioning costs by 10%. In addition, cool roofs are made from materials like solar reflective paint, which saves money on electricity because you don’t have to run fans all day long.

2) Colorful Sidewalks

Add curb appeal to your home exteriors by using colorful materials for your sidewalk. You can use pavers, bricks, or even concrete to create a fun pattern that will look great when people walk around it. This is also a good idea if you live in an area with heavy foot traffic because it makes your home more noticeable from the street.

From high quality travertine pavers to budget-friendly concrete, there are endless options to choose from. Simply pick a color and pattern that complements your home’s exterior and you’re good to go!

3) Custom Home Numbers

Installing custom home numbers will make your home stand out from the rest because it’s unique and a great way to show off your personality. You can choose different colors or materials for each number, so they all match but still have their style.

4) Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens make your home unique, and they’re also useful because it allows you to cook outside on nice days. This is a good option for you if you live in an area with a lot of outdoor space. You can choose from materials like stone or brick for the countertops and cabinets to match your home’s theme.

5) Child friendly home exteriors – Playgrounds and play areas for kids

Playgrounds and play areas for kids make your home more entertaining. They’re also good if you have kids who like to run around or play outside. You can choose different materials for the playground equipment to match the rest of your home’s theme. You can add other fun features like slides, swings, and gyms.

Artificial turf is a good idea for kids who like to play in outdoor areas. It’s easy to clean and maintain, so you don’t have to worry about dirt or mud on your lawn equipment. You can also choose different artificial grass types that match your home’s theme.

How to Clean Artificial Turf

You can clean artificial turf by using a hose with a spray nozzle to rinse it off. You can also use a pressure washer for deeper cleaning if needed. Consider having professional cleaners come out once per month if your children love playing on the lawn equipment often.

7) Hydroponic Gardens

A hydroponic garden is a type of garden that uses water instead of soil to grow plants. This allows you to grow more plants in a smaller space, making it ideal for people who live in urban areas or apartments without yards. You can also use the water from your hydroponic garden on other parts of your lawn equipment, such as trees and shrubs.

8) Swimming Pool

Having a swimming pool cools off during the summer months. However, keeping the water clean and safe for your family can be difficult. A pressure washer will help you eliminate dirt and debris from your pool’s walls, floor, and decking so that you don’t have to worry about any dangers lurking around under the surface.
