Give Your Home's Exterior A Facelift

We all want our homes to look as good as possible. They are where we come back to after a long day at work, where guests come to visit, and the exterior is the first thing a prospective buyer will see. The thought of sprucing up our home’s exterior can fill most of us with dread. Too little time, or money, are usually the things holding us back. There is a way, however, to give our home exteriors a facelift without spending a fortune…


The Yard




Start with the very front of your house. Before you even reach the door you most likely come across a driveway, patio, or front garden of some kind. Pay attention to this area as it is what will form a visitor's first impression. You don’t want the bins to have rubbish spilling out and patchy grass!


First of all, have a tidy up. If there are any pieces of rubbish or debris that need moving tackle this first. If you can, store garbage bins somewhere other than directly in front of your house. At the very least ensure all rubbish is inside and the lid is properly sealed. Next, you’ll need to clean the outside of your front windows, a job that is sometimes neglected! This is a really cheap way to instantly make your exteriors look more appealing.


Finally, if you do have a front garden, give it some TLC. Start by pulling up any weeds which may be growing and trim back bushes and hedges. Next cut the grass and use a strimmer to get rid of any overgrown pieces at the edges. This is enough to make your front yard look presentable. If you want to take it to the next level buy some potted plant and flowers for your front steps.


The Front Door




You want your door to appear warm and inviting and reflect the atmosphere you want your home to create. This may sound like a lot to ask of a door, but it's easy to achieve! Start by painting your door. This is a quick and easy way to make it instantly fresher and more appealing. Professional house painters may be the better should you not want to undertake the task yourself. Alternatively, you can get creative by adding or replacing your current knocker. Get one that appeals to your sense of style and personality. 


The Roof




This is the most costly part of improving your curb appeal but is still relatively inexpensive. You’ll need to hire a professional for this job but it will make all the difference. The roof of a home is constantly under pressure from the elements. Whether it’s rain or snow, our roof is the first line of defense. Not only that, but it literally covers our homes and can be unsightly if not looked after. A professional will be able to fix any holes or loose tiles, deal with rust, and give your roof a lick of paint too.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
