Tips for Creating Curb Appeal on a Budget - Part Two

Feb 12, 2010
More great advice from TV designer Chayse Dacoda.


  1. Re-surface your driveway. Instead of a tarred or cement driveway, consider installing one with a woven stone and grass pattern. This can do wonders for curb appeal.
  2. Add details such as shutters, decorative moldings and fun elements like weathervanes to the outside of your house. Make bland windows come alive and define the architecture of your house with mullions, moldings, decorative eaves, fixed shutters or iron scrollwork.
  3. Add a stone-walkway or path going to the house instead of grass or a wide berth of cement.
  4. Replace a chain-link fence with a wood one. Be unpredictable. Instead of a picket fence - put in one that has slanted multiple-height wood slats.
  5. Plant a tree. Nothing will appreciate more in value than what this tree will look like 10 years from now.
