Give Your Door Some Color: Your front door is the first thing people see when they walk into your home. It says a lot about you. Repainting a worn front door is an easy weekend refresh that will score you major curb appeal points.
Replace Welcome Mat: Not only are entryway mats a charming accent to greet guests with, they also stop dirt at the door, minimizing cleaning and extending the life of your floors. While there are many different styles and materials available, coir and waterhog mats are the most popular today.
Spruce Your Front Doorway Up With Planters: Adding a planter to either side of your front door is a budget-friendly way to bring new life to your entryway. It’s also an easy way to achieve a warm and inviting feeling without serious gardening.
Replace old hardware: When replaced, house numbers, locks and knobs, wall-mounted mailboxes, and overhead light fixtures can give your home a fresh, updated look. Opt for keyless entry for added value. As more millennials look toward homeownership, having a tech-enabled house with automated locks could make your property stand out against the competition.
Add Shutters: Once used to protect homes from storms, today shutters are decorative elements that add texture and dimension to a home’s exterior. There are a variety of different styles and colors available. Choose louvered shutters for a traditional look, or board and batten for a cottage feel.
Mailbox Makeover: Mailboxes should complement the home and express the homeowner’s personality. Whether shopping for a wall mount or post-mounted mailbox, pick a box that matches the home’s aesthetic. Dress up a post-mounted mailbox by surrounding it with a beautiful garden.
Install window boxes: Window boxes offer a fast, easy way to bring charm to your home’s curb appeal. Choose boxes made from copper or iron for a traditional look, or painted wood for a cottage feel. Mix and match flowers and plants to suit your climate and color scheme.
