7 Quick & Inexpensive Home Exterior Updates

Give your home some sparkle this weekend.

Does your house give you the blahs when you look at it from the outside? Short of a pricey renovation, you can do some things to help step up your home’s visual appeal, projects that can be done in an afternoon or over a long weekend. Add some sparkle to your home to give it a lift, sending your blahs packing!

1. Paint the mailbox — Homes with rural or curbside mailboxes can add some pizzazz by painting the post and wrapping the mailbox. Add a neutral color to the post or one that matches the exterior of your home. Mailbox wraps can be changed seasonally and include a festive look such as an American flag, a whimsical children’s character layout or take on a Christmas look around the holidays.

2. Add window cladding — Windows can be updated quickly by adding aluminum cladding on window frames. Cladding is a low-maintenance enhancement, one that comes in various colors. If your home needs to “pop” then cladding can help get it done.

You don’t have to replace the door in its entirety, but consider doing so if your door is worn or outdated.

5. Add or replace shutters — Shutters add visual appeal to any home and can contrast windows, siding or both. Old shutters can detract from your home; new shutters can give your home a fresh look. Choose easy maintenance shutters made from fiberglass or PVC.

6. Stain your concrete — Take that blah-looking front patio or walkway and mix in some color. Whoever said that walkways must be white? There is much preparation to be done to give your concrete a new look and you’ll need to apply a sealant. That means you may need to take several days or a pair of weekends to give your concrete a fresh look.

7. Plant flowers — Perhaps all that is needed to give your home a...
