9 Ways to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal for Less

Than $50 These products will instantly improve your home’s curb appeal without breaking the bank.

The old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” doesn’t apply to real estate. In fact, any good real estate agent will tell you that the exterior of your home greatly impacts its resale value.

Of course, a cleaned-up curb is not just for potential buyers. It also creates a warm and welcoming environment for you and your houseguests.

If sprucing up your outdoor space seems like an overwhelming — and expensive — undertaking, we’re here to help. Below are several items that cost less than $50 and will instantly boost your home’s curb appeal.

We do recommend checking prices around the web first, though, to be sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck.

Also, note that although the prices you see here will almost always be accurate, they sometimes differ slightly from what you will find at Amazon.

1. Add window boxes

Bring life to your front entrance – literally. The Panacea Products 30-Inch Window Planter lets you add a colorful array of fresh flowers. Choose a mix that complements the color of your house, or use these window boxes to grow fragrant herbs you can clip for the kitchen.

Mount one on each window ledge or against a flat wall.

2. Post up a new mailbox

Whether your mailbox has fallen victim to late-night mischief or the effects of weather and weeds, it’s time to replace it with the NACH Chicago Wall-Mounted Mailbox. This durable, oversized envelope sits flush against your home’s exterior wall, so you don’t have to worry about a post coming down. Plus, it comes in four different finishes, any of which will add style to your home.

The metal mailbox is painted with a coating for rust protection.

3. Hang a wreath on your door

You don’t have to paint your front door canary yellow to make it pop. Simply add the bright-green Pure Garden Boxwood Wreath. This artificial adornment is suitable for all seasons and doesn’t require any maintenance. Sounds like a home run to us!

Worried the color will fade? This 12-inch-round wreath features ultraviolet (UV) protection to prevent exactly that.

4. Feed the birds

Thanks to the lively green hue and carefully designed perches on the Bird Loveee Outdoor Bird House Feeder, you’ll have no trouble drawing a crowd to your door. Just think: If birds want to hang out at your house, you can bet that people will, too.

A bird feeder like this will bring the sweet sound of birds right to your front door. If you’re not completely satisfied, lean on their 100% money-back guarantee.

5. Update your house number

Forget peel-and-stick. The Sol Pixie Dust Modern House Numbers tell passersby that you take pride in your home. The best part is they only take a few days to create, and you can customize the layout and design to match your style.

Sol Pixie Dust crafts their house number plaques with two durable layers — one is made of concrete and the other acrylic — for durability in inclement weather.

6. Spread fresh mulch

Have weeds overtaken your flower beds? Pull them up, and then spread a layer of Rubberific Signature Series Shredded Rubber Mulch all around your flowers, trees and shrubs. This mulch is made from 100% recycled rubber and will help prevent weeds from invading your property.

Rubberific also promises a 10-year warranty against complete color loss, which means you won’t have to redo the mulch anytime soon. You may, however, need more than one bag to cover all the ground.

7. Install a door knocker

Make your home feel like a castle when you add the Canadian Fence & Hardware Lion Door Knocker. This small investment lends loads of old-world charm – and sounds much more stately than a doorbell.

This door knocker is made of galvanized steel and is non-corrosive.

8. Upgrade your lighting

New lighting not only illuminates your porch for a safer entry, but it makes your home feel much more inviting. What’s great about the Fudesy Outdoor Wall Lanterns is that they come as a pair. That means you can place one on each side of your front door, or flank your garage and spread the light even further.

Depending on your preference and placement, you can turn these lanterns so light shines up or down. They are made of black polypropylene plastic and clear acrylic lenses, making them waterproof and resistant to corrosion. Fudesy provides a five-year warranty.

9. Add decorative planters

If you have a staircase or walkway leading up to your front door, line part of it with the Gifts & Decor Flower Pot Trio. They come in three varying sizes, so you can stagger them on stairs or a flat walkway. No matter how you put these jewel-toned planters on display, your space will surely stand out.

Each pot features an embossed design. They’re made of ceramic and have a drain hole at the bottom.
