How to Instantly Add Curb Appeal for Less Than $50

You don’t have to be selling your home to invest in a little more curb appeal. And it doesn’t have to be expensive either.

While realtors have touted the importance of curb appeal when putting your home on the market, it’s just as beneficial to your home to stay on top of your exterior’s maintenance.

Why Invest in Curb Appeal?

  1. Stay on the right side of your Home Owner’s Association (HOA).
  2. Prevent small issues from becoming costly repairs.
  3. Reduce the need for expensive landscaping later.
  4. When your home looks good, you feel good about it!

If you need help making those exterior repairs or creating your dream outdoor space, let’s talk!

Add Small Shrubs and Mulch

Add small shrubs to an empty flower bed and fill the space around it with brand new mulch. You can typically find red or black mulch in the gardening section of your local home improvement store.

Plan to purchase plants in sets of 3 and use one large bag of mulch for every few feet of flower bed.

Lowe’s also has a great top soil and mulch calculator so you’ll know exactly how much to buy.

Line Your Flower Beds

Speaking of flower beds, lining your flower bed with a stone barrier is an excellent way to instantly up-level your curb appeal.

While real stone may be out of the budget, concrete and faux stones can often be snagged at a fraction of the cost.

You may even be able to find scalloped plastic barriers that are pounded into the group using a rubber mallet.

Repaint Your Front Door and Shutters

If you’re really looking for a project to sink your teeth into, try repainting your front door and shutters.

Most will just need a light sanding unless you plan to completely change the color.

Replace Broken Porch Furniture

Old or broken furniture can make the entire front of your home look run down and neglected.

Replace broken furniture on a budget by shopping yard sales, hitting up consignment shops, or searching for hidden treasures at your local antique shop.

If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also refinish old, broken furniture and breathe new life into your outdoor space.

Update Your Mailbox

Updating your mailbox with a quick coat of paint and new numbers is a great way to increase your curb appeal on a budget!

Head to your local home improvement store for a spray can of Rustoleom in your desired finish plus a pack of new stick-on numbers.
