Outdoor of the home is an equally important feature as the interior. Most of us tend to keep the exterior green to make it freshening for the home members. With that said, keeping it well-decorated also serves as the strong selling point among potential buyers. However, there are some decoration errors that you should avoid while decorating the exterior because such practices never pay off when you sell the home. As a matter of facts, committing these mistakes can actually reduce the value of your home.
Laying out landscape using geometric parameters or rulers
One thing worth remembering is that nature is not geometric. So, a landscape attributed with the patterns of geometry is never going to give your outdoor the desired look. Although, this decoration practice had its days, these days are now long gone. People prefer natural outdoor more than a geometrically arranged one.
Trees that are grown everywhere
Yews, rhododendrons, and dwarf Alberta spruces can be seen planted in almost every outdoor across the country. So, if you are willing to make a difference to raise the value of your home, you can do something better. Instead, you can look plant the trees that grow gradually and transform into the bigger bodies once fully grown. Furthermore, avoid planting trees along the line of fence.
Overly lit up outdoor
Lighting the outdoor is an important aspect of exterior decoration but you don’t have to overdo it. In fact, lighting the outdoor too much doesn’t add very well in the decoration. You may like to install some lighting in a few trees, but doing it with every tree would turn your outdoor into a lit-up stadium.
The tasteless mulch
The people who like to install dark-colored tiles on the walkways in outdoor often seem arguing in the favor dark colors by advocating mulch’s ability to absorb light and make an overall warmer ground. Well, the truth is these designs are now outdated. So, the best option here is to install mulches with natural colors.
Too much landscaping
You may love to enhance your landscape and keep it green as much as you like, but it can be repelling feature when it comes to putting your home in the market. Over the top landscaping can also be disturbing for your neighbors. So, it would be better to avoid making the home a cabin in a heavy forest, and make it a place that belongs to urban area.
Dedicating most part of the landscape area to lawn isn’t going to give your home outdoor much desired look. The reason is that it greatly undermines the architectural beauty of your home and it’s outdoor.
