Cooler weather is the perfect time to spruce up your home’s curb appeal. Did you know home sellers can increase their property’s value up to 20% with some well-executed updates? And, even if you plan on staying for the long-term, updates will make your home more inviting to family and guests and keeps your residence and property looking fresh.

Here are 7 ideas to add more curb appeal this fall:

  1. Replace fading summer flowers with seasonal mums, pansies, and kale. Stuff your flower baskets with these fall beauties and don’t forget to add small pumpkins.
  2. Make a bold choice with your front door color.It’s not a big job so once the season changes you can keep things fresh with another color choice. We think orange makes a nice fall statement!
  3. Add some bling to your home by painting your pumpkins a metallic gold with spray paint. Or, use silver and gold leaves to make a generally plain door shine. If the mood strikes you, add a silver striped ribbon to your pumpkin and really stand out.
  4. Add a festive touch to your mailbox with autumn flowers, corn stalks, and a pumpkin or two.
  5. Speaking of pumpkins, paint your house numbers on fall’s favorite plant. Better yet, if you have a steady hand, script your family name on your winter squash. Yes, a pumpkin has the same botanical classification as a squash.
  6. Decorate your front yard lamp poles with pumpkins and corn stalks. Fill a wagon with fall décor and plant it on your front porch.
  7. Frame your front door with pumpkins on either side. Add some corn garland and a seasonal doormat and you’ll welcome your neighbors and friends to the fall season.
