Dressing up your curb appeal can be quite the undertaking; adding new walkways, new landscaping, or new pavement can be extremely costly. While they make a huge difference the look and feel of your home, sometimes these curb appeal items just aren’t in the budget. Luckily, there are quite a few ways to dress up your home’s exterior for much less, things like paint, and accessories tend to go a long way. Here are just a few great ways:

Front Door – Your front door is the first thing your guests will see when they walk into your home, it’s the welcoming door that can be warm and inviting if you make it. Style of the front door is a big decision; do you want a solid wood door or a front door with glass and designs? Think about your privacy, the amount of light you’d like in your front rooms and your safety when deciding what kind of door is right for you. A glass or decorative door can be inviting and fun, but a solid wood door may provide you with more security. If you do decide to go for a wood door, you still have the option of dressing it up with a wood stain, or bold color choices like red, green or yellow.

House Number – An old or outdated house number can make your home look old and outdated, simple as that. If you’re looking for a quick and easy face-lift, consider switching out the house number for a more modern version. They have all kinds of numbers to choose from, and you can decide where you think it will be the most noticeable, like above the garage, the front door or maybe in a large dormer.

Mailbox – Whether your mailbox is attached to your home or out on your lawn, it makes a big statement about your home. Is your mailbox falling apart? Does your mailman dread stopping by your home because he worries about breaking it or getting tetanus from the rust? A new mailbox may be just the thing to spruce up your front yard. It shows that you welcome the communication with friends and family and guests are always welcome.
