7 tips you can implement now
Let’s get to the heart of our article. It’s time to look at various ways in which you can take your home from drab to fab in a simple manner. You’ll be glad to see your home looking better than ever.
1 – Clean that yard
Like we stated above, it doesn’t have to cost much but labor to get started. Get your hands on some yard clean up tools — such as bags, rakes, lawn mower, leaf blower. You can get started by bagging up garbage and debris. Use the help of your leaf blower to consolidate the leaves for easy bagging.
Be prepared to haul away the trash and any old appliances or vehicles away. It’s better to declutter your yard rather than hold on to projects you will never get to.
2 – Pressure wash the exterior of your mobile home
Now let’s get our hands on a pressure washer. A pressure washer will enable you to blast away the grime that’s collected on your home’s siding. You won’t know just how dirty your home’s exterior is until you’ve seen the power of your pressure washer at work.
Once you’ve dealt with the siding, you can knock out the sidewalk and driveway. You’ll be amazed at how new your exterior and outdoor surroundings look after a good pressure washing.
3 – Install a birdbath
Another addition to your front yard is a birdbath. Might as well install a bird feeder too while you’re at it. A stone birdbath can bring a sense of class to any yard. And the birds will appreciate it too. Why not get your hands on one?
While you’re in the market for a bird feeder, you may wish to keep an eye out for other types of outdoor stone decor. If you go for proper placement, it could certainly be a good way to spruce up your yard.
4 – Add exterior lighting
Additionally, consider your mobile home’s exterior lighting. What can you add to bring some attractive vibes to your yard and home?
For one, a lamp post could be nice. And so could white “Christmas” lights — they give an airy and romantic vibe year round if placed just right.
You could also line the sidewalk with solar-powered lights.
5 – Dress up the home’s entrance
For your home’s entrance, depending on the space available, you may wish to add a rocking chair and an array of potted plants. A fun welcome mat and windchimes can add some charm to your home.
Also, you might want to consider putting a fresh coat of paint on that front door. Paint can make your door look like new. Give it a try and see what happens.
6 – Clean the windows
Now, how about those windows? You may be surprised at all the dead bugs and grime that have made their way into the mesh of your windows screen. It’s time to clean that up. In keeping house, it’s all about the little things in life that contribute to the overall big picture of cleanliness.
7 – Plant flowers, shrubs, or trees
Finally, let’s talk about landscaping. Placed in the appropriate manner, you’ll find a helpful touch of elegance in flowers, shrubs, or trees. Do some research or chat with a skilled landscaper to see how you can bring some new greenery to spruce up your yard.
