Our home improvement experts are here with ten projects that are sure to increase your home’s curb appeal. Best of all? These projects will also add value and many of them increase your home’s energy efficiency as well. That’s a win-win-win!

How to Increase Curb Appeal

1. Install New Siding

Updating your home’s exterior cladding makes the largest impact in your home’s appearance and curb appeal. Whether your siding is damaged or faded or the color just isn’t on trend anymore, having new vinyl siding installed will instantly make your home look refreshed and boost your curb appeal.

2. Install New Entry Door

Looking to make a big impact but only have the time or budget for one project? Spruce up your entryway and create an inviting space with a new entry door! Go bold with red, deep purple or black or make your front door a blank canvas with a gorgeous neutral-colored door. And with our durable fiberglass doors, you’ll never have to worry about repainting or staining it. 

Besides improving your curb appeal, Window World entry doors are insulated and energy-efficient, saving you money on your energy bill every month.

3. Explore New Windows

You may not think about windows when you think about increasing your curb appeal, but they have a big impact on your home’s appearance. Not only does replacing your windows give your home a polished look, but it also increases your home’s energy efficiency.

4. Take Time to Do Some Landscaping 

Putting some extra care into your outdoor spaces is a surefire way to add curb appeal.

Landscaping doesn’t have to be complicated, either! Simply keeping your lawn mowed and weed-free is an easy way to make your home look more appealing. Take it a step further by planting some flowers or shrubs around the front of your home and create a border with pavers. You can add a finishing touch by adding pathway lights around your front walk and in your flower beds.

5. Spruce Up Your Front Porch

Who doesn’t love sitting on the front porch on a nice day? Creating a warm, inviting front porch not only makes it a nicer place to relax, it adds a lot of curb appeal. 

Start by removing clutter from your porch and sweeping away any leaves or dirt. Replace or repair any railing that is damaged and give all railing and trim a new coat of paint. Add your patio furniture, a welcome mat, and some greenery to complete the look!

6. Install Window Boxes 

Window boxes add extra life and color to your home without taking up floor space, making them a great choice if you’re short on outdoor space but still want to express your personality. You can plant flowers, trailing plants to add some visual interest or even grow your own herb garden right at your window! For an easy-care plant, petunias love that Texas sun and do well in containers. 

7. Focus on Symmetry for Your Home

Symmetry is more than just pleasing to the eye. It’s a powerful design tool that points the eye right to your front door or your prized flowerbeds. Symmetry that leads to visual focal points is found in many popular art pieces, and most likely houses you love employ it as well. Want to use this to increase your home’s curb appeal? It can be easy with the right tools. You could use paving bricks along your path, custom windows framing your front door or well-maintained hedges to guide the eye to the entryway.

8. Add Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting is practical and an artistic choice. It lends your home extra flair with both daytime aesthetics and nighttime ambiance. Placing lights should be as simple as highlighting or accentuating areas you’re proud of, like that backyard fountain or a tile mosaic, and in more practical locations like around your outdoor seating area or on the side any paths. When placing outdoor lighting along paths, you should alternate lights on either side of the path. 

9. Fix Up Planter Beds in Your Front Yard

Planter beds are excellent for adding curb appeal to your yard, especially if you’ve got a green thumb. Consider pruning growth, pulling weeds as they grow and choosing plants that grow well during different seasons. An easy way to add additional beauty is to border your planter beds off with small rocks or custom wood borders. 

10. Make Your Mailbox a Feature

If your mailbox is in front of your home, it’s in a prime spot to add an extra touch of beauty to your yard! Whether you add a trailing plant like ivy for a natural, green look or put on a mailbox cover for vibrant, seasonal color, this is a great opportunity to show your style before guests even arrive at your doorstep.
