Paint Your Door
Painting your door is a quick and cost-effective way to add color to your home. It typically costs less the $75 and is a simple way to make a statement.
Before committing to a color, pick up some paint swatches and some sample colors. Paint small samples or tape the swatch to your door to help you determine which color will be right for your home.
Add Some Greenery
Adding potted plants to your front porch is a quick way to brighten your home. Consider something simple, like mums or lavender. Both are easy to care for and are good for the bees.
For something a little more elevated, install planter boxes under your windows. The added boxes add visual interest and are a classic look on any home.
You don’t need to go all out with landscaping, but there are at-home projects that are relatively cost-effective. Add metal edging throughout your yard to create landscape barriers for drought-resistance plants. Use mulch to help save on water, and it helps add dimension to your front yard.

Do your best to take good care of your lawn. A green lawn goes a long way in improving curb appeal and making your home look beautiful.
Clean and Pressure Wash
Rent a pressure washer to give the outside of your home a vigorous cleaning. You can use the pressure washer on many surfaces – including outdoor furniture!
Wash your walkways, fences, gutters, driveway, and anywhere that looks like it needs an intense cleaning. You may need to use a degreaser on your driveway to remove set-in stains.
When using a pressure washer, be sure to use the weakest setting first and work your way to the strongest one. This helps avoid any damage to surfaces.
