Even if you’re not planning on selling your home, curb appeal is important. That might just mean pressure-washing the driveway, repairing broken stairs, or updating your mailbox. Sometimes upgrading curb appeal is simply a matter of spending time in the yard and getting your hands dirty by edging the lawn, trimming hedges, or pulling weeds. To keep costs down, plant perennials that keep their greenery all year long. Your front entrance can also say a lot about your home. Upgrading to a high-end fiberglass door can cost more than $1,000, but you can get a whole new look for a lot less simply by adding new hardware and a fresh coat of paint. Pair your newly painted door with a clean doormat or fresh pot of flowers, and you’ll have a whole new entrance for under $500. Don’t want to do it yourself?
