You probably spend a lot of time thinking out what your home looks like inside; but do you pay the same attention to the outside? You may decide that a few coats of paint are enough, but you have the opportunity to make a real statement with your exterior décor. Make sure that you put your personality into outdoor décor projects.

You can opt for a larger project, as WikiLawn suggests, like landscaping your garden. Alternatively, you can make changes on a smaller scale. This can be just as effective, and a lot of fun.

Make your house number bright and easy to see

This is a very simple project to start with. Ask yourself this question, is it easy to see the number on your home? If the answer is no, you need to deal with this straight away. It’s annoying for anyone who is calling round to not be able to tell which house yours is. Choose bold numbering, or lettering if your house has a name. Fancy fonts may look creative, but they can be difficult to read, especially from a distance.

Opt for number or letters that are made of protected metal as they tend to last longer. Ideally, place the numbers or letters close to a light source. Keep your creativity to a minimum around the numbers themselves and keep busy patterns for other areas, such as the tiles on your doorstep.

Personalize your outside space

You have a personality, so use it. Turn the area outside your home into a reflection of you. Remember to do this in a subtle way. You may love the idea of bright red decoration around the front of your home, but it may not be quite so appealing to neighbors. A great way of stamping your personality on your outside space is to create cool weatherproof signs. You can decorate them with welcoming and/or funny sayings or designs. They make a unique first impression for visitors.

Say it with flowers

It’s hard to beat flowers, when it comes to exterior decoration. You can use old pieces of wood to create plant holders. Just make sure that you weatherproof them. Choose plants that are hardy and easy to care for so that you do not have to spend a lot of time tending to them. One of the best things about plants is that you can swap them about, so you can keep your exterior décor fresh.

Design a wind chime

Wind chimes have a relaxing effect as they blow in the wind. If you like the idea of having a moving ornament in your yard, but do not like the sound of wind chimes that is fine. They do not have to make a noise. You can create silent chimes that have a bright and colorful design. There are several different materials that you can use when making wind chimes. One of the most fun choices is the shells that you collect on a trip to the beach. The whole family can join in, and enjoy this project.

Be creative when you are thinking about outdoor décor projects. Have fun and remember to keep decoration in line with what is going on in the neighborhood while adding your own personal touch.
