How to Improve Curb Appeal on a Budget

Curb Appeal is Your First Chance to Impress Visitors and Buyers

There are several ways that you can improve curb appeal on a budget. When your house has noticeable curb appeal, visitors are impressed, not to mention potential buyers (if you’re planning to sell.) You don’t have to break the bank, though, to improve your home’s curb appeal. Some affordable improvements include:


  • Pressure Washing the House
  • Painting or Replacing the Front Door
  • Coordinating Colors
  • Adding Simple Landscaping



Pressure Wash the House, and Paint the Front Door for Curb Appeal

When you pressure wash your driveway, porch, and siding, it removes debris and dirt that accumulate over time. Pressure washing also removes cobwebs and insects that hide under your windows and in the outside corners of your house. Hiring Apex Mobile Pressure Washing to accomplish these measures can significantly improve your home’s curb appeal.



After you’ve had us pressure wash the front porch and siding, you might consider painting your front door. According to a article, painting your front door black is the latest trend. When you paint your front door black, it gives buyers the impression that your house is a safe choice. If your front door can’t be restored or improved by painting, get a new one. Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore is a great place to find affordable front doors in good condition.



Enhance Curb Appeal When You Coordinate Color and Add Landscaping

Another simple way to enhance your home’s curb appeal is by coordinating colors and adding landscaping. You can coordinate colors by painting a primary and secondary accent color or matching your shutters with your front door. Maybe you’ll want to check out your neighbors’ color schemes to coordinate colors with them. When adding landscaping, you can coordinate colors that way, too.


Trying to coordinate colors with landscaping sounds fancy and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be either one. Believe it or not, you can do a lot of your own landscaping without any professional assistance. If you landscape with flowers, make sure their colors don’t clash with your front door. Some other, simple landscaping options include adding:


  • Pebbles
  • Mulch
  • Window Boxes with Flowers
