Paint the Front Door, Trim or Shutters
One great and inexpensive idea to revive your home and add some brightness is to paint the front door, trim or shutters. Why not be brave and pick a bold color that makes your home stand out?

It is important to prep surfaces of your home that you wish to paint, so that you will get great, lasting results.
Replace Your Current Mailbox
How long have you had your mailbox for? If it has been a while and your mailbox is starting to look worn out, it might be time to replace it! Regardless if you have a regular mailbox or one that is mounted to the house, adding a new mailbox is sure to add curb appeal and freshen up the look of your home. This project is inexpensive since most mailboxes start at around $20 and take up to two hours at the most to complete! When installing a new mailbox, please make sure that you are following the regulations that are set forth in the city that you live in.
Replace Exterior Lighting
Putting some thought into landscape lighting can go a long way in terms of curb appeal. When buying new exterior light fixtures, it is essential to consider both the style of your home and the function of the lights. The new light fixtures should have enough light for the entryway to make your home safer at night and they should also blend well with your home. To save time, it would be wise to look for fixtures that have the same mounting system as your current lights.

Install Flower Boxes
Are you looking to add color and liveliness to your home? Adding flower boxes can instantly increase curb appeal of your home. They are inexpensive to obtain and do not take long to DIY.

If this seems too time consuming, then another option is to consider buying container gardens in pots.
