Home Improvement Projects That Add to Your Curb Appeal

by Renee Gildersleeve 04/27/2022

Sometimes it feels like all the top home improvement projects are focused on the inside of the home — but there are a lot of ways that you can improve your curb appeal as well. Whether you are looking to make a good first impression when your guests arrive at your home or you want to generate buzz about your home when it is listed on the real estate market, you will find that these projects instantly boost your curb appeal.

Paint Your Front Door

Front doors have become the newest trend in curb appeal. While stately wooden doors and neutral tones will never go out of style, now is your opportunity to be bold. Paint your front door a vibrant accent color, such as turquoise green, apple red or navy blue. This allows you to add style and character to your home's exterior while still blending in with the rest of the neighborhood.

Install a New Garage Door

It may come as a surprise, but a new garage door is actually one of the most valuable home improvement projects that you can complete. This project offers an excellent return on your investment, and it can transform the appearance of your home.

Add Flower Boxes

Flower boxes may feel like a decorative accent from an era gone by, but they will add a serious amount of charm to your home. Wooden flower boxes can be filled with fresh blooms in the spring and summer, but you can also decorate them with seasonal accents in the fall and winter.

Revamp Your Mailbox

Whether you have a mailbox that's at your front door or a street side box, you can paint or refinish an existing mailbox in order to improve your curb appeal. If your mailbox is beyond repair, consider replacing it with a newer model.

Create a DIY Address Sign

One of the easiest DIY home improvement projects that will increase your curb appeal is making your own house number sign. With this project, you can take a contemporary approach or stick with tradition while still showcasing your own personal style.
