How to Improve Your Home's Curb Appeal on a Budget

Make Your Curb Appeal Soar with 3 Home Improvement Projects

Improving the curb appeal of your home doesn't have to be an expensive endeavor. There are plenty of ways to give your home some "oomph" without draining your bank account.

Update Your Entryway

You can update your entryway on any budget. If you want to see a drastic transformation, you can replace doors, outdoor lighting, or windows. If you're on a tighter budget, all you need is a gallon of paint. Slap a new color on your front door and add some polished metal house numbers. Add a few inexpensive plants out front, like spruce trees or evergreens. They're under $20 and they look good all year.

Refresh Your Porch

Making your porch look brand new is simple and cost-effective. Re-stain the wood on your deck, or reupholster patio furniture with updated fabric if you’re handy with a needle and thread. Don't be afraid to change up the mood with lighting, either. Solar lights are inexpensive, come in a variety of styles, and save on energy costs. Inclement weather can produce a lot of wear and tear on your home, so consider repairing cracked or damaged siding on your front porch.

Clean Your Walkways

If you've noticed the driveway and walkway to your house is cracked, stained, or dirty, cleaning these areas will significantly improve the look of your property. A gentle pressure washing should be enough to remove dirt and grime, and the washer can be used on your home's exterior as well. If you have cracks in your driveway, you can hire a professional re-sealer or take on the job yourself. All you'll need are the measurements of your driveway to determine how much sealant you need.
