Paint Your Front Door

Your home’s front entry is the focal point of its curb appeal. Start with a fresh coat of paint on your front door. And don’t be afraid of color! We shared a few of our favorite paint colors on our Pinterest board and a quick door painting tutorial from Daybreak resident, Jennifer Hadfield.

You can also make a small investment in new hardware, doormat and a wreath to complete the look. If you are tight on funds, you can spray paint your current hardware to give it a new look.

Add Garden Containers

Add contrast and color to your home exterior with a new garden containers. This adds a welcoming feel to any home exterior — quickly and affordably. You can buy containers that are ready-made from garden centers or create your own with your favorite plants.

Mix and match flowers and plants to suit your lighting conditions and color scheme. For most landscapes, a staggered, asymmetrical arrangement works best.
