Add to the curb appeal of your house -- and increase its value -- with these easy exterior improvements. Welcome autumn in all its glory with a fall-themed door wreath. This ready-made decoration brings together a colorful mix of faux flowers, leaves, and other signs of the season. Best of all, it’s reusable year after year. Transform a slab and steps with the high-end look of stone. Then update a basic mailbox with gleaming copper spray paint.
Having a warm welcoming porch is a simple way to start embracing the new season. Try adding plants with colors reminiscent of fall; some colorful “Garden Mums,” ornamental grasses or even purple kale are great for delivering a simple autumnal touch. Don’t forget about the planters, which will give the arrangement the complete look.
not too many steps up and they are wide (3 steps up would be perfect, I think), like windows on three sides of door (but not going all the way to floor - these are good), lantern, transoms above windows, no railing at front porch/stoop
