​Big impact improvements that you can make now to boost curb appeal and perk up the approach to your new digs!

ADD LIGHTING: ​Lighting is a simple fix that can make a big change. At night, a hanging fixture can make a huge difference on the appearance of your home. When trying to decide on your light, pick a style that complements your home's architecture. 

​UPGRADE THE DOOR:​ Always think of the front door as an "introduction" to your home. Divided light windows in this paneled wood door offer outside views and fill the foyer with sunlight.  You can even choose to use an install-ready pre-hung door. If you decide to go this route you can make this upgrade in a day. Using all different colors and designs is a great idea for your front porch. It gives your front porch lots of character. 

​CALL-OUT WITH COLOR: ​You can keep the same color of paint on your front door. However, it is a good idea to apply a fresh coat of paint to make your entry stand out. This is a very simple step, but the color makes a huge change in the overall appearance on your entry.

RE-FACE THE STEPS: ​Are you tired of the way your entry flooring looks? You can easily turn a dull concrete entry into a showpiece by covering it with stone. For example, staining the concrete, clay saltillo tiles, split brick, and limestone pavers. 

​PLANT A COUPLE OF CONTAINERS: ​Large potted plants around your entry way provide color and uniqueness. Just make sure the containers you put them in are water proof. An entry way with nothing but a foot mat, to an entry way with pretty flower pots with colorful flowers make your entry way really stand out. 

The way you decorate your entry way is your choice, but remember by adding a few simple steps can make a huge difference on your homes overall appearance.
