Get reading and start adding some magic to your home without breaking the bank!
1.Paint and Glam the Front Door and Trims
Revive your home by adding brightness to it. Painting your front door with a popping color will do the trick! Opt for a contrast between the front door and facade. Just remember to keep the colors complimenting each other. This may cost you as little as $20 or much less!
2.Light it Up: with Outdoor Lighting
Always keep in mind the style and function of the light. You want some nice looking lights that can adequately light up your entryway and give highlights to your home. This just doesn’t add up to the ambiance, but may help in preventing accidents and keep intruders away. Exterior lighting can be bought in any home improvement shop and will only cost you $20, more or less.
Add some accent with this simple and essential accessory! Making your mailbox standout can act as a statement piece to your home’s curb. Be sure to follow your community’s regulations, though. You can get a brand new mailbox for around $20.
4.Prune and Tend to Those Beds
Attending to your garden and regularly grooming them can always bring a fresh vibe to your home. Always remove growing weeds and clear out other debris. You can change flowers, too, according to the season. Go for colored flowers and bring some vibrant and lovely touches to your garden that people will surely love to notice!
5.Clear the Driveway
The driveway can easily accumulate dust and dirt. Remove stains with a high-pressure washer. Store items, tools, and pieces of equipment that aren’t being used, in the garage or shed. Keeping the view simple and decluttered can make your home look much cleaner and organized – which reflects the homeowner’s personality and lifestyle, too!
6.Add Some Outdoor Art
Have some of those architectural pieces of art displayed in front of your home or in the garden. Fountains, statues, window boxes, house numbers, door knocker, and a lot more! You can find these items at an affordable price in a resale shop, or in the local flea market.
7.Trim Trees and Bushes
You want people to see the front of your house. Trim those overgrown bushes, cut those branches – just be sure the front porch and windows are seen and are not being blocked by plants and trees. If you want to do this on your own, expect to buy your own sheers for around $10 at least.
