Homes that make a great first impression get more attention and sell for more than those with uninspiring exteriors. If your home isn't living up to its potential, buyers may not even look inside. Fortunately, there are many ways to enhance your yard and add curb appeal to your home, gaining positive attention.

Coordinate Exterior Paint Colors

It's surprising what a little paint can do to transform your home's exterior. A cohesive color palette featuring two or three colors puts your home in the best light without making it look too busy. Pair a main with a lighter or darker shade for the trim, paint siding and trim in similar tones, and add a bold accent color to ensure a successful color scheme.

Give Your Front Door a Facelift

Choosing a bold, standout front door color or a beautiful custom wood front door that accents the colors on the rest of your home is an inexpensive way to turn your entryway into a dramatic focal point.

Increase Your Home’s Character with Window Shutters

Shutters are an affordable way to add personality and transform a plain exterior. Size decorative shutters the same height as window trim and 25-50% of the width. Take care with functional shutters, which require precise measurements.

Add a Pop of Color with Window Boxes

Installing window boxes beneath railings and windows adds color and life. DIY or purchased at your local hardware store, they cost little to install. Filled with festive, seasonal flowers, they add instant charm.

Update Exterior Home Lighting

Replace drab, aged lights with a new style that suits your home’s architecture, or add character with high-quality, vintage replacements from your area antique or salvage store. Choose fixtures that use the same mounting system as existing lights to ensure an easy switch. In addition to entryway lighting, consider incorporating solar or low voltage landscape lighting to trees and walking paths for a bigger curb appeal boost.

Update Old Hardware and Accessories

House numbers, wall and door-mounted mailboxes, entry door locks, and light fixtures can add style and interest – if they're not outdated, dented, or corroded. To ensure an appealing aesthetic, be sure to choose a cohesive color scheme, such as brushed nickel for your contemporary home or oil-rubbed bronze for your traditional architecture.

Replace Gutters and Downspouts

Dented, dinged, discolored, or mildew-ridden drainage does your home a disservice. Replacing it with newer snap-fit vinyl gutters or contemporary copper dramatically enhances curb appeal.

Incorporate More Trees

Established trees not only boost curb appeal and property value, they can also help you control utility costs, improve air quality, and reduce stress. Spruce up your lawn in a snap with these fast-growing options:

  • Crape myrtles
  • Emerald Green arborvitae
  • Leyland cypress
  • Crabapple
  • Dawn redwoods
  • Linden trees
  • Eastern redbuds
  • Paper and river birch
  • Pin oaks
  • Maples

Add or Renew Garden Beds

Refresh garden beds in front of your home. Upgrade old or worn borders, weed, prune existing foliage, and incorporate colorful new flowers. Add visual interest with a new garden bed surrounding your mailbox or along walkways, beckoning visitors into your yard.

Incorporate an Inviting Seating Area

Placing a homey bench, small bistro set, Adirondacks, or rockers near your entryway offers an inviting landing for neighborhood visitors. It also serves as an attractive transition between indoors and out, boosting charm and curb appeal.

Extend Your Living Space and Welcome Visitors with a Pergola

Turn your home into the highlight of the neighborhood. Add curb appeal and functional square footage with an adjustable louvered pergola.

Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space More… With An Adjustable Louvered Pergola!


Do you have an under-used, uncovered patio that is either too hot when you want to use it, or gets too much rain or snow to be functional? The Adjustable Louvered Pergola System has you covered – or uncovered! Unlike a retractable awning or wooden structure with fixed slats that give partial shade, but no rain protection, this aluminum pergola system can offer full sun, partial to full shade, or shelter thanks to its ingeniously designed adjustable louvered roof system.
