Add Shutters and Mouldings

Shutters and mouldings are a simple addition with big impact. If the outside of your home looks plain, add some colour and texture with  shutters. Just make sure your style of shutter fits your home; modern, mid-century, historical etc. Tip: Make sure the shutter is the length of the entire window!  Oh snap!

Update your Garden Beds

Add mulch, bushes and tons of plants to the immediate perimeter of your home! If you already have garden beds, keep them looking spiffy. Dead head, water and fertilise your plants regularly. Pay attention to which way your home faces, this will come in handy when it's time to pick out your plants.  If you live in a drought zone, choose drought friendly plants like succulents and cacti!

Paint

Painting is one of the biggest changes you can make to the outside of your home.  If painting the entire home isn't in the budget right now, think about adding pops of colour to the siding, trim and or door! If you live in a restricted or historical area, be sure to run your colour changes and choices through whoever is in charge.

Add a Fountain/Bird Bath

Water is always a fun element to bring into your garden (it's also good feng shui). If you don't live in a drought area, add a little  fountain to a flowerbed. If you live somewhere where water is tight, try a  bird bath. These simple garden accessories add a touch of thoughtfulness to your home.

Spruce Up the Numbers

This may be the most simple and wallet friendly change. Show off your style and update your  address numbers! Give people a glance of what to expect inside! If your home is mid-century modern, choose something sleek and simple. If you live in a bungalow/jungalow (like me), go with something that includes plants like the address number planter in the pic.

Post box Makeover

Choose a chic box to match the style of the address numbers and the house. If your neighbourhood doesn't allow actual post boxes, then spruce up your wall mount box with a unique and fashionable one; a  copper post box is a great option.

Replace the Hardware

If your hardware is too run of the mill or your bored with it, go on a hunt for a one-of-a-kind piece. eBay is a great place to hunt for one of a kind,  lights, sconces and door handles.

Add a Fence

Fences are often necessary if you have kids or pets. Put up something unique and jungalicious like a wall of hedges or big thick jade plants. Pick plants that you know will grow and can act as a fence. If you want an actual fence, try a cement fence with windows and fill the windows with potted plants!
