Paint the front door

If your front door has seen better days, adding a fresh coat of paint is an easy and inexpensive way to change the look of your whole house.

Switch out door hardware

Now that you’ve painted your front door, it’s time to switch out the hardware. For an even more budget-friendly solution, remove the current hardware and spray paint it with paint meant for metal.

Hang new house numbers

Large, visible house numbers not only make your home look good, but they’re also a safety feature if first responders need to get to you. Plus, deliveries and visitors will be able to find your home much easier, too!

Upgrade your porch lights

This easy DIY project has many benefits, including a cleaner look and a well-lit entrance.
