A house is usually one of the biggest purchases you will ever make, so naturally, you will invest a lot of time, effort and money into looking after your home and making it look as good as possible. Countless hours are spent redecorating, choosing furniture and accessories for the interior and plenty of care should also be put into the exterior aesthetics.
When you welcome guests to your home, or perhaps you are looking to sell your property, remember, first impressions count. With that old saying in mind, it’s well worth doing everything you can to up the curb appeal of your home. A neglected exterior could turn off guests or potential buyers from as far away as across the street.
A huge part of making sure your house looks as appealing as possible on first impressions is not only caring for the brickwork, but investing in a beautiful, low maintenance driveway solution. Whilst commonly used commercially, resin bound and resin bonded surfacing systems are also increasingly popular solutions for a wide range of domestic driveways, paths, patios, courtyards, landscaping schemes and walkways. With a life expectancy of as much as 15 years and a practically maintenance-free surface, it’s easy to understand why.
At Midland Decorative Surfaces, we take great pride in helping bring great curb appeal to domestic properties throughout the country. We recently finished a project at a beautiful house in Coventry. The property, which also included separate garages and outbuildings, was blessed with a long driveway, allowing visitors plenty of time to make their first impressions.
To perfectly complement the Rhine Gold exterior of the house, we completed the installation of resin bound driveway surface, using fine 6mm trent gravel. The gravel contains a mixture of rounded, half rounded and angular stones in various subtle brown, white and greys to create a natural effect. Whilst resin bound surfaces benefit from the aesthetics of a gravel driveway, the stones are bound in place, so there’s no need for tiresome sweeping on a weekly basis!
