1. Paint Doors, Trim and Shutters

It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do. From giving trim and shutters a boost in brightness to stealing the spotlight with a bold front door color, a new coat of paint can make a great impression without breaking the bank. With prices no more than $30 a gallon, this is one improvement you can buy on the spot and complete within a couple hours.

2. Improve Landscape

Going green goes a long way—literally. The houses that stand out the most are the ones with refreshing landscapes. But you don’t need to have a green thumb to reap the benefits of an eye-catching front yard. Look into installing flower boxes below window frames, planting native shrubs or trees to reduce water usage, or constructing a simple herb garden.

3. Replace Home Address Numbers

Recently redesigned the interior of your home with a mid-century modern vibe, but still have those dated numbers posted outside? Now’s the time for a change. This is one aspect of curb appeal that can easily be overlooked. Select fun and interesting colors, metals, or textures for your house numbers for a unique way to show off your house’s individuality.

4. Update and Install Exterior Lights

A well-lit house is a well-loved house. Replace old porch lights and install landscape lights to display all of the hard work you put in! The landscape lighting adds an appealing, professional touch to your house while also serving a functional purpose. You can also consider installing motion sensor lights for added protection.

5. Pressure-Wash the Driveway and Walkways

Don’t have time or money to repave? Budget-conscious homeowners, pressure washing is an easy way to make your front yard feel and look brand new. Wash the oil-stained driveways and dirty walkways to give the front of your house a fresh, clean slate. And if you don’t have one on hand, you can cheaply rent a pressure washer from a nearby home improvement store.
