While most of us would love a dramatic HGTV style exterior makeover, that’s not always possible due to time and money constraints. We all know how important it is to have great curb appeal. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can add some pizzazz to your home’s curb appeal without breaking the bank.
All of these options require minimal installation, electrical connections, or expertise. Give them a look to see what you can do to upgrade your home’s exterior in less than a weekend!

Spruce up Your Garage Door: Many of us never consider the aesthetics of our garage door. It’s a big metal door that we interact with once or twice a day at most. These low cost, low commitment upgrades can make a huge difference. Try adding some magnetic windows to change the overall look. Or try adding these magnetic handles to give it a chic carriage house look. 
Shutters to Match: Now that your garage door has upped the chic quotient, add some beautiful hardware to your shutters. These are easy to add and will add a pop of contrast to your home’s shutters. 
Give Surfaces a Good Wash down: Cleaning your outdoor surfaces can make a huge impact. Siding, brick, and sidewalks can all benefit from a good wash. We love this power washer for the job. Did you know you can use a power washer for cleaning plush outdoor cushions? It makes quick work of this frustrating task. 
Decorate Your Porch: Adding a couple of topiaries, like these, to flank your front door will instantly add class and style. Plus these won’t require a green thumb to care for! 
Hanging Plants Add Pizzazz: Hanging planters are a chic way to add some new greenery to a space. This set will add plenty of beauty to a porch.
Add Some Sparkle: Adding some new exterior lights will always make an impact. These battery operated options are a great idea if you aren’t able to run electricity to an area.  Up-light it Up: Adding some uplights to your home’s facade will bring life to your home’s exterior. These solar powered options will add light without the need for programming or  electrical work. Each night, they’ll turn on when the sun sets and add some beautiful accent lighting to your home’s exterior.
Create a Stunning Path: A pretty pathway is the ultimate way to invite guests into your home. Step up your stepping stone game with these beautiful teak tiles. They’ll add some wood tones and make coming to your porch even easier. 

What are your favorite ways to upgrade your home’s curb appeal? Which of these ideas would you be willing to try?
