It's the front entrance that has the power to entice or deter folks so make a few of the 6 updates mentioned here to transform your home's curb appeal today. Don't forget to share your before and after pictures with us!
1.) A dutch door is a must do! It's one of our favorite home updates that literally invites the outdoors in. Just swing the top half open, and your guests and family are sure to love the function (and style) of this entry upgrade!
2.) Window boxes, along with fresh landscaping, are an instant, easy way to add color and charm. For a farmhouse cottage feel, install rustic wood boxes, or for a more modern feel, select an iron or metal silhouette.

3.) Swap out your shutters with wooden ones or layer on a fresh coat of paint. They add dimension, accentuating the windows and lines of your home. In other words, shutters act like mascara to your front elevation. I mean...who leaves the house without mascara on?!? :)

4.) Update your exterior lighting. This simple change dramatically transforms the curb appeal of your home by better illuminating your entryway and adding fresh character that makes your home look more current.

5.) Build a front walkway. When laying your walkway, use stone, brick or concrete for a welcoming entrance. You could even line it with pavers for an extra special detail.

6.) Update your porch railings. Anywhere from painted wood to stark metal, railings create glamour and definition for your front porch. Make sure the railing color and style compliment the house rather than distract from its beautiful features.
