The front exterior of your home is the first thing that anyone sees when visiting or driving past your house. The outside of your house sets the stage for what is inside and should be just as beautiful on the outside as your home is on the inside. Whether you are looking to improve your curb appeal to aid in selling your home or make improvements for your own personal enjoyment, there are many simple changes that can be made to increase the curb appeal of your property. Below we have included 5 easy ways to spruce up your home’s exterior without breaking the bank.

Tend to your lawn
Lawn care is one of the most important ways to maintain your curb appeal and keep the exterior of your house looking beautiful and clean. Keep your grass healthy by regularly mowing & watering your lawn. Don’t forget to rake your leaves and pull weeds as needed as well. A beautiful green lawn will make your entire outdoor space look vibrant and welcoming.
Add a pop of color to your front door
An easy way to transform the exterior of your home is by painting your front door. This can be done with left over paint or for under $100 with a new can of paint. This is a great way to experiment with bright and bold colors without completely changing the color of your entire house. We love the look of a red or blue door for a fun pop of color on the exterior of the home.
Change your front door hardware
Another way to transform your front door and the overall look of your home is by changing its hardware. Choose a color/ stain that provides contrast to your door color or add a fun door knocker for additional visual appeal.
Don’t forget your mailbox
Many people overlook the ability to transform their homes exterior with a beautiful mailbox. It is very affordable to purchase a new mailbox that matches the look and feel you are going for with your home.
Symmetry is pleasing to the eye and very simple to arrange. This can be done with plants, light fixtures, flowers, and much more. Our favorite way to create symmetry is with a walkway leading to the front door, surrounded by shrubs and symmetrical lighting.
