The outside of your home is the first thing that people notice, and it’s important to keep it looking fresh and up-to-date. There are plenty of projects you can take on to add value and improve the look of your home for years to come. From landscaping to updating outdoor furniture, here are six easy projects that will immediately improve home curb appeal.


One of the most common ways to spruce up a yard is by adding some landscaping elements. This could include trees, shrubs, flowers, and other foliage. You may also want to consider a garden or grassy area if you have the space and resources available. If you don’t have a green thumb, professional landscapers are available to help design an appealing outdoor space that fits your needs and budget.

Outdoor Lighting

Adding lights around your house can greatly improve its curb appeal. These lights can be used for both practical purposes (such as path lighting) or for aesthetic purposes (such as spotlights highlighting a fountain or other feature). Solar-powered lighting is becoming more popular as well due to its cost-effectiveness and energy efficiency.

Pressure Washing

Pressure washing is one of the easiest ways to freshen up your home’s exterior walls, patios, driveways, walkways, decks, etc., when done correctly. For best results it’s recommended that you hire a professional pressure washing service since they have access to better equipment than individuals do in most cases. Not only will this process make your house look great, but it will also help extend its life by removing dirt and grime from surfaces before they become damaged over time by weather exposure or other factors.

Painting and Staining

Another great way to improve your home’s appearance is with a fresh coat of paint or stain on its siding and trim work—which includes windowsills, doorsills, window frames and doorframes, etc. A new color might be just what you need to give your house a facelift without spending too much money on updates like new windows or shutters (not to mention painting/staining is fairly straightforward DIY project). Additionally, upgrading from basic latex paint formulations such as ‘flat’ paints provides increased durability against weathering which helps maintain a crisp clean appearance longer than non-enhanced paints will provide over time in most cases.

Outdoor Furniture

Everyone wants their outdoor living space comfortable enough for entertaining guests or simply enjoying some alone time in peace and quiet outdoors. There are many options when it comes purchasing furniture for these purposes depending upon budget constraints and personal preference regarding style. When shopping around, keep an eye out for sales that offer discounts off already competitively priced items if you can find them. Additionally, remember that quality often costs more initially, but ultimately pays dividends later by providing years of enjoyment with minimal maintenance required over time.

Garage Door Installation

A new garage door, like one from Town & Country Door LLC, can instantly transform the look of your home and boost its curb appeal. This is another great DIY project, as long as you’re comfortable with measuring and cutting along with basic power tool use. When shopping for a new garage door, consider what type of material (wood, steel, aluminum) will suit your needs and budget. And don’t forget – if you ever need help with your garage door installation, then professional installation services are available should you choose to go that route. 

With so many options available for improving your home’s curb appeal, it can be overwhelming trying to decide where to start first. These six projects are all relatively easy DIY tasks (or if not DIY then inexpensive improvements) that require minimal effort but yield big results when completed properly. Regardless of how much work you put into enhancing your property, always remember safety first!
