11 Welcoming Ways to Up Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Share It

Just as what you wear can project how you see yourself and present yourself to the world, your home’s exterior can do the same. It doesn’t have to be something anxiety-inducing, however. The beauty of curb appeal is that it can be as simple as replacing your house numbers or adding some planters, to as advanced as building a new facade on your house or redesigning the landscaping. Extending the personality of your home to the outside is kind of like the quote by Roald Dahl, “If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” The same goes for adding those personal touches that makes your home yours.

Whatever your home’s era, architectural style, or size, there are a myriad of ways to make it feel special. We’re excited to share with you 11 different ways to make your home feel welcoming, be a reflection of you, and highlight your home’s unique style. —Rebekah

    I am a big fan of contrast colors and materials of front doors. Easy to feel welcome or at home!

    A welcoming front door can do so much for a house! After I painted my front door red and added some potted plants next to it, it made a huge difference!
