Most homes of today are not made of wood or material that requires an overall paint job. Re-paint the trim around the windows and any other trim and replace the front door. Painting the trim can be a fun weekend project along with replacing the door. You can use white to paint the trim or choose a color that would that would set off the windows and other trim such as a soft pastel color or a light color such as shades of yellow or blue. Darker colors would only make the house look strange and all anyone would notice would be the trim and not the house.

You can also a flower garden under the front windows on either side of the front door. If you do not want a flower garden plant some small bushes, rose bushes, or evergreens but none that get so high that they will cover the windows. If you have a walkway leading to the front door, install some solar lights to light the path at night. To help get an idea of exterior home remodeling ideas, at the curb and look at the front of your home picturing what would make your home more appealing. In addition, glance up at the roof to see if it needs professionally cleaned or if the gutters need cleaning.
