How can I improve the curb appeal?
Melanie HonJanuary 3, 2013
We've owned this 1939 bungalow for just over 4 years now and it's on a fairly busy street. The location is great however and we both want to stay here for the next 15-20 years. I'm looking for suggestions on how to improve the curb appeal. So far we've cleaned up the landscaping, widened the driveway and paved, repainted the concrete steps/retaining wall, repainted the railing, replaced the house numbers and I re-stained the original door. We also removed the fake shutters as they were the wrong color after we repainted the steps and removing them actually destroyed them. I'm getting a quote on replacing the windows, also thinking of removing the awnings vs. replacing them, however I'm afraid it might make the house look "naked". Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated! I've posted photos of what the house looked like when we first bought it and then throughout.
