Looking to add a little pizzazz to your curb appeal with a limited budget?  Here are a few tips to get you going and enhance your curb appeal.

1) Add a Flower/Planter Box
Flower boxes are typically cheap and combined with going to your local nursery, the new colorful flowers that you add should be an instant hit.

2) Plant a Flowering Tree, Bush, Tree…
Like the flower boxes, let nature shine through as you walk up to your front door. For the finishing touch add some decorative mulch or some xeriscaping.

3) Install New House Numbers
If your house numbers are old and tired, head down to your local building supply store to find some new modern ones.

4) New Exterior Light Fixtures
Modern light fixtures can provide a new look and hopefully some added light to your front entry way.  Make sure you look at your old mounting system as if you can find an exterior light fixture you like with the same mounting system, you will have saved yourself some installation time.    Also, look into outdoor stainless steel solar lights.  If you are in an area of lots of sun, these would look great at night as they illuminated the pathway up to your front door.

5) New Mailbox
Look online, a thrift store or your local bldg. store to see if you can find a fun, decorative new mailbox.

6) Paint
Paint is relatively inexpensive yet makes a world of difference.  Consider painting your door & window trim, shutters and front door (if it can be painted).  Painting whether inside or outside is typically money well spent.
While you should paint to your tastes also consider checking with a local paint store to see what they recommend for the latest color trends.

7) Decorative Fence
The fence may not have to be big or keep anyone out for that matter but a fence, even a small decorative fence even a foot high helps establish boundaries and gives a mental sense of separation from the sidewalk/road to your personal property & home.
