5. Create a natural approach from guest parking or sidewalk to the entry. The landing should be big enough to greet guests. Consider a custom front door that is thicker and wider than other exterior doors.

7. Fresh paint adds the biggest impact for the least amount of money. Research paint colors that are appropriate for the home’s style.
