Easy Ways to Increase Your Home's Curb Appeal

Anyone who knows anything about real estate will tell you that curb appeal is crucial to your home’s value. The way your home looks from the outside gives prospective buyers a first impression – good or bad, and can make a huge difference in sale price. Even if you’re not selling your home, coming home after a long day of work to a warm and inviting atmosphere can brighten your day. Here are some ideas to increase curb appeal that will really make your home stand out.

We’ll start with mailboxes since they’re often the first thing people see when they arrive at your home. I love these mailbox makeovers!
