10 Simple Changes to Boost Your Curb Appeal

Giving your home’s curb appeal a big boost doesn’t have to include major renovations or a landscape overhaul. There are plenty of small changes and DIY projects that can provide a little extra oomph this spring. Here are 10 simple things you can do to ensure your home makes a great first impression.

1. Catch the eyes of passers-by with a brightly painted door. When picking your color, make sure you look at it in natural light. If you pick it based on how it looks indoors, you’re not going to get an idea of the final look.

2. Trim any trees on your property, especially those up against the house. Your home won’t stand out if no one can see it!

3. Add a splash of color with planters or window boxes filled with bright, seasonal blooms. Planters can be a great way to define your entryway.

4. Welcome your guests with a fun, unique doormat.

5. Power wash your siding and paint your shutters. Repair or replace any that are damaged.

6. Brighten the night by installing landscape lighting. Not only can highlight some of your home’s best features, it can increase your security and illuminate potential safety hazards, like stairs or uneven surfaces.

7. Makeover your mailbox. If you’ve got a post-mounted box, consider adding low maintenance plantings around it for an easy way to beautify the space.

8. Beautify plain concrete paths or other areas. You can install brick edging to give it a more refined look or try a colorful concrete stain if you’re looking for something more playful.

9. Update your house numbers. You can purchase new numbers, order customized plaques or even DIY your own-one-of-a-kind display.

10. Separate your property from the street or sidewalk with a fence and gate. Go for a picture-perfect classic with white picket, take an elegant, vintage approach with wrought iron, or opt for something sleek and modern.
