20 Simple Ways To Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Are you considering home remodeling projects to increase your home’s value? Here are 20 simple ways to boost your home’s curb appeal.


1. Decorate with Planters


Decorating with planters is one of the easiest and most affordable home renovations you can make. If you want planters that are professionally designed, head to your local nursery to discover the top plants that are in season.


2. Upgrade Your Front Door


When people look at your home, their eyes naturally go to the front door. Upgrading your front door is one of the most effective ways to revamp the appearance of your entire house either by the color of it, windows, or even décor.


3. Paint the Exterior of Your House


If your exterior paint looks outdated, consider updating it. Though this project can be a challenging one, the final result will be worth the sweat. You can also hire professional painters to do it for you.


4. Pressure Wash Everything


A good cleaning can make a world of difference in how your house looks to pedestrians. Use a power washer to thoroughly clean your sidings, windows, roof, deck and all other exterior elements of your house.

5. Trim Your Shrubs


Unkempt shrubs can give the overall appearance of messiness. Avoid unkept shrubs and take time to clip and trim all your shrubs.


6. Add Decorative Elements


The right decorative elements can make your home very appealing. Consider adding things like shutters, wreaths, and outdoor art to the front of your home.


7. Expand Your Porch


A large, welcoming porch is the perfect addition to any home. It’s also something that will increase your home’s value. If your porch is currently lacking, consider making it one of your major home remodeling projects.


8. Update Siding


Do you have old, damaged siding on your house? It’s time to get rid of the eyesore and replace it with new siding. To make sure the job gets done right, hire professionals to do it for you.


9. Add a New Fence


Is your house surrounded by a rotting wood fence or a rusty chain-link fence? If so, adding a new fence should be a top priority. A white picket fence or new vinyl fence will enhance the appearance of your property.


10. Add More Lighting


Does your home disappear into the night as soon as the sun goes down? Consider adding exterior lighting. It will not only make your home appear more charming and welcoming, but it’s also a deterrent to thieves.


11. Swap Out Your Mailbox


When you consider home renovations that will add to your curb appeal, changing your mailbox probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, an attractive mailbox is the closest part of your property to the street and can make a good impression.


12. Repair the Driveway


Does your driveway have chips, cracks, or discolorations in it? Make it a priority to repair it or replace it.


13. Clean the Windows


Cleaning your windows is one of the easiest things you can do to improve the look of your home. Don’t forget to clean both the insides and outsides for the best results.


14. Upgrade Your Garage Door


Replacing your garage door can make a big impact on your home’s appearance. If you don’t have the budget to replace the entire door, consider changing the exterior hardware.

15. Install Window Boxes


Window boxes can add a lot of charm and appeal to your house. Fill them with bright, colorful flowers to draw attention and admiration.


16. Add Porch Seating


Especially for larger porches, make it a comfortable place to hang out by adding comfortable seating. From loveseats to porch swings, there are plenty of seating options available for you and your guests to enjoy.


17. Paint Your Fence


If you have an old fence that is in relatively good condition, give it new life with a fresh coat of paint. Don’t forget to seal the paint to make sure it lasts as long as possible.


18. Add New Mulch


Fresh new mulch looks beautiful in flower beds. Select a mulch size that’s heavy enough to stay put even on windy days.


19. Get a Nice Doormat


A nice doormat doesn’t cost a lot of money, but it can add a lot to the exterior of your home. Choose a darker color that will hide dirt well.


20. Hide Junk


Piles of junk and belongings are an eyesore. Make sure all junk is out of eyesight to keep the exterior of your home looking tidy and clean.
