A beautiful entrance can impress guests and can add value to your home to entice potential buyers. We’ve collected a few easy ways to modify the entrance of your home.
Flowers for a splash of colour
The fresh morning air, birds chirping, the smell of fresh cut grass, spring truly is a beautiful time. Make the most of the season by adding brightly coloured flowers to spruce up your home’s entrance. Adding flowers in pot plants, such as Tulips and Hydrangeas, require regular watering but are resilient making them the ideal choice for homeowners looking to boost their home’s curb appeal with minimal maintenance.
If you’ve got the space and the time, planting bedding plants, such as Pansies and Hyacinths, have long been British favourites and are guaranteed to make your home stand out above the rest. Most of these should be planted in early autumn and will light up the front of your home with colour as soon as the weather warms in spring. If it’s time to update your front door, our range of doors, such as composite and uPVC, come in a range of colours and finishes to complement your home perfectly.
Hedge your privacy
Hedges are a brilliant way of adding a natural aesthetic to your home. Hedges are an excellent way of adding a natural aesthetic to your home’s entrance. They can also be a deterrent and a good method of protecting your home from burglars. Planting a hedge requires a row or 2 of plants to achieve the thick bushy appearance they are so well known for. Check your local garden centre or home improvement retailer for the type of plant, such as Berberis, to suit your home and be sure to make note of the correct method of planting.
Light up the way
