The exterior of your house is a big deal. It’s what any guest and all passersby are going to see, and even subconsciously they’re going to form an impression about the kind of person that lives there. Indeed, the garden alone is a huge deal, and you’ll do everything you can to make sure it’s well kept and welcoming!
And all that means is that you have a lot to do when it comes to curb appeal! It’s what makes buyers interested when you decide to sell up, and it’s what makes your home such an amazing party venue. So if you think your walls could be doing a lot more for you, let’s have a little think about them below.
Is There Plenty of Light?
Natural light is something people need more and more of in the modern era, as there’s a lot of sleep disorders and blackout curtains going round! Artificial light is nowhere near as good for the mind, eyes, and the sleep cycle than the sun outside, so opening up your curtains and clean your windows for better exposure.
This could even be the time to get yourself more of an open plan to the outside world. You can check out the Siding & Windows Group if you think you could do with better window panes or upgraded glass, or even an extra window or two to really make a difference. You might even be able to look into adding window seating for afternoon naps whilst you’re there!
Are Your Walls Well Insulated?
Insulation is what really makes a house a home. If you’re living in a space that doesn’t have any, you’re probably living to regret your decision to fork out, as your home is going to be boiling in the summer and freezing in the winter. Bricks and mortar alone aren’t good enough to keep a good temperature circling in and out of your house, so look into your insulation options. Whether you need to make the material thicker, add some extra into the roof, or you need double glazing on the windows, make the decision sooner rather than later.
Are Your Walls Thick Enough?
Do you hear the neighbors banging away in the kitchen with what seems to be a hammer 24/7? Do you really wish you had more of a sound barrier, as it’s clear your house came from a time with different standards for neighborly disruptions? Add in a layer of drywall on either side, if you have the time and money to do so! If not, you can very cheaply invest in some sound proofing from your local hardware store or online.
Your house needs its walls to stay safe and stable, but they also do a lot for improving the beauty standards of the neighborhood. Take the time now to make sure they’re doing everything they can for you, as you don’t want a disaster to strike at any time!
