How To Create A Perfect Period Home Exterior

Evaluate the finished project’s value and consider the appeal when considering a period home improvement project. Decide which upgrades will add value whether you plan to stay in the property or sell it. Here are some tips to help you create a perfect period home exterior:

  • Historical features: This is a vital aspect that must be completed to a high standard when renovating a period home. Preserving or replicating certain historical details such as mouldings, fretwork, archways, and architraves is crucial to help you achieve the best outcome. 
  • Paint: The exterior painting of your period home gives the property a lively nature by improving its overall appearance.
  • Front door: Replacing or painting your front door is another great touch when renovating your period home. It’s frequently a sizable portion of the exterior of your home and one of the first things guests notice. 
  • Landscaping: Landscaping is crucial in ensuring that your property looks its best from the street. Never underestimate the power of landscaping.
