1. Add an eye-catching detail
There are many inexpensive ways to enhance your home’s first impression. Consider lighting pathways to the front door to welcome guests. A doormat is also an inviting detail to impress your company. Selecting a seasonally appropriate wreath or blooming potted plants can add the perfect amount of pop.

Planting trees is a common way to add curb appeal to your home. Before planting, consider how large the tree can grow and how it will affect your house. If possible, plant two trees framing your entryway. Another great way to freshen your home’s look is adding and trimming shrubbery.
