Frugal Updates to Your Home That Add Curb Appeal

Maybe you’re thinking of selling your home and moving away, or maybe you just want to give your home a little refresh. Either way, there are plenty of ways you can add a little more curb appeal to your home with just a few simple décor updates. If you’re mindful of budget though, here are a few things you can do that will make your home stand out without breaking the bank.


There’s nothing more off-putting than a dark home. Maybe you don’t have many windows, or if you do, they’re blocked by trees or other houses. If that’s the case, you’ll have to look to ways of improving the light from the inside your home instead. A simple trick is to switch your current light bulbs to LED ones. LED bulbs are actually more energy efficient and offer a wider and more powerful spread of light. This is a great hack for making your home feel more spacious and inviting.

Dressing Area

If you’re kids have recently moved out or gone to college, a great way to make use of this extra space is to create a dressing room. A few clothes racks, some built-in storage and a vanity complete with a low stool can completely transform a room. This adds a touch of high-end luxury to your property that will really make it jump out at potential buyers if you’re selling.

Tackle the Lawn

Nothing counts like a first impression, and if your house looks neglected from the outside, people can really be put off. Maybe make the lawn your summer project and by investing in a few gardening tools you can work on it a little bit every day. Making sure the lawn in regularly cut and with a few well-tended flower beds, your home can look noticeably more well cared for.  

Fresh Lick of Paint

A fairly obvious but often overlooked tip, make sure your walls are well painted. Over time, wear and tear starts to show. Whether that be the odd scratch or chip here or the few cooking splash stains there, there are lots of little things that build up over the years. A tin of paint is relatively inexpensive and rather than painting the whole walls, maybe just touch up the affected areas.

Keeping your home looking and feeling new is easy if you know how. These few simple tricks should help to add that little bit more curb appeal to your property which is essential if you’re looking to put it on the market. A well looked after home could be the difference between that little bit more money to go through on a sale.
