Don't Ignore The Door...

A Lively Display
Tired of those dated, cracking house numbers plastered to the front of your home? They're too small to see from the street anyways, am I right? Why not toss those old fashioned, brass numbers...and try something chic, stylish, and eye-catching. Whether the flower pots or the buckets speak to you, it's time to make those digits pop!
By simply changing the color of your mailbox to something a bit more vibrant... giving the post a coat of fresh paint as well... AND updating your house number to a more modern font... you can give your mailbox a complete, and stunning, facelift!
Cover The Cans
Whether you choose to go with an expensive high-end fence, or a more simple DIY one, covering up those unsightly garbage bins and air conditioning system is definitely the way to go. As they say... "less is more!"
Now You See It, Now You Don't
And while we're on the "covering up" topic... go ahead and hide your electrical boxes as well. A splash of paint makes a HUGE difference in this before and after look!

The Power Of Flowers
The addition of a simple brick flower bed, taupe shutters, and a wooden window flower box take this side yard from dull and drab... to simply stunning! Plant flowers and give "life" to your home!
Your front door greets your guests even before you do... so make it good! Pick a color that welcomes, that sets you apart, and that people notice... go bold or go home!
