Perhaps the first and most crucial step in adding curb appeal is making sure your home’s lawn is looking great. While this is sometimes easier said than done, a lush green lawn is one way to make your home stand out.
Simply adjusting the color of your front door or even replacing an old door is an effective way to increase your home’s curb appeal. You can paint your door yourself for under $45 or even have someone else do it for under $100.
Consider updating siding & gutters
Depending on the age of your home, you might want to consider addressing the siding and gutters seriously.
Add some door & window decor
Adding a few garden boxes to your windows if you live in a condo or townhome is a cheap way to add color to the outside of your home, thus creating some more aesthetics.
Overgrown trees and bushes don’t add to your home’s appeal. They take from it. Whether you trim down your trees and bushes or remove them, opening up the front of your home will give your home more appeal.
Anything you can paint on the outside of your home is a simple way to add some street appeal to your home.
On the list of curb appeal ideas, perhaps the most expensive option would be replacing your windows. The reason being is often, window replacement isn’t covered by insurance (unlike a roof) and is more of a cosmetic upgrade.
You can spray-paint your shutters, and it is a quick way not only to add curb appeal, but it is one of the cheapest options too! Buying spray paint isn’t that expensive, and you can add some flare to the outside of your home by simply spicing up your shutter colors!
