SOUTHBURY, CT - (Marketwire - Apr 8, 2013) - Spring is in the air, which means it's time to get your exterior living spaces ready for outdoor entertaining. Although this process can be enjoyable for some, many homeowners become overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be done. Decor&You®, one of America's leading, full-service interior decorating franchises, shares secrets for getting started and key tips to keep in mind when refreshing your home's exterior.
"The best part about summer is enjoying your outdoor space," said Decor&You Founder and CEO Karen Powell, who added that April is the perfect time to start preparing the exterior of your home for summer entertaining. "There are so many different elements that come into play when transforming the exterior of your home into your ultimate outdoor oasis. Besides the obvious changes, like planting new flowers, it's essential to take into account the condition of your home's exterior and key factors like adequate shade and lighting."
Before homeowners begin to revamp their outdoor space, Powell recommends that they complete a quick inspection of their home's exterior. Take a quick walk around the outside of the home and examine windows, doors, roofs, gutters and downspouts to make sure these small, but important, details are in order. Also, remove any debris, limbs and leaves scattered throughout the yard. This will make a big difference in the look of the outdoor space.
Once the homeowner has inspected the home and fixed any imperfections, the real fun can begin:
