What Houzz contributors are saying:
If you can, install exterior lighting on a sensor at your front door that lights up your entrance and street number. If you cannot bring in the electrician, grab a can of paint and some inspiration and make your entranceway and house identification fun and sharp on the eye.
1. Clean up the front of houseFirst impressions count and a clean house exterior adds enormous kerb appeal. The ideal tool for cleaning the exterior of your home is a high-pressure washer or Gerni gun. Before you get started:make sure all the windows and doors are securely closed, wear protective glasses to prevent debris getting in your eyes,check the pressure on the machine, you don’t want to strip the paint! Pre-treat soiled areas with a cleaning solution, then spray at a downward angle and keep the hose moving side to side.While you’re cleaning, avoid spraying the windows as the pressure could result in breakage.TIP: If you have a problem with mould and mildew, consider adding a weak solution of hydrogen peroxide to the mix.
