1. Crank up the curb appeal.
We usually talk about curb appeal in the context of sprucing your home up to prep it for sale but there’s just something about loving the way your home looks when you drive up to it day after day, or when you have people over, that dramatically increases your enjoyment of home.

Depending on which projects you’d like to do and whether you’re interested in doing any of the work yourself, you can crank up your curb appeal for just a few hundred dollars or a few thousand. Here are a few vision-starting curb appeal-boosting projects to consider:

Exterior paint or power wash
Paint or install a new garage door
Paint or install a new front door
Paint or install new trims (shutters, eaves, etc.)
New exterior hardware (door kickplate, mailbox, house numbers, etc.)
Exterior or landscape lighting
Front yard landscaping spruce-up or makeover
Curb appeal is one of the most cost-effective home improvement projects for homeowners who are staying put in terms of life-improving bang for the home improvement buck.
