When you’re renovating your home’s exterior, it’s important that you make the right choices for your home. After all, a renovation can affect your property’s overall appeal and value. With that in mind, to ensure that you’ll be properly renovating your home, it’s best that you know what are the design sins that you need to avoid.
According to remodeling and siding contractors of ATD Restoration, these include:
Planting Invasive Plants
Plants are good additions to every home. After all, not only does it beautify your surroundings but the right landscaping can also improve your home’s overall value and appeal. However, when you’re getting some landscaping for your property done, avoid planting invasive plants like English Ivy and Japanese Honeysuckle. Not only could these plants go out of control and crawl up your home’s exterior if left unattended but they can also damage the ecosystem of your area and as such, they should always be avoided.
Installing Improperly Sized Window Shutters
While it may sound hard to believe, window and siding installation experts are actually right when they say that not every window needs shutters. However, if you’re so intent on installing shutters in your windows, avoid adding the wrong size of shutters. Instead, install ones that appear larger enough to cover the window’s entirety when shut. Alternatively, if you have double-mulled windows, picture windows, bay windows, and dormer windows, avoid adding shutters entirely as they do not suit these window styles.
Adding Oversized Dormer Windows
Dormer windows are good to use if you want to break up your home’s roofline. But if you want them on your home, don’t add oversized dormers as they can make the upper part of your home seem bulky or hulking. Undersized dormers, on the other hand, can make your home’s facade look unbalanced. As such, if you want to avoid this, be sure to only pick the right size of dormer windows for your home.
