What renovations can you do to fix up a home?

Just wondering if any one has any ideas on different renovations you can do to make your house look better. I have a split entry house that is about 20 years old. It is surrounded by older homes, that make the street look sketchy. However, I want to add some new things to my house to make it look somewhat better. Any suggestions?

Details:

  1. Nice flowers that can be seen from the street and nice side walk, steps if yours needs repaired,
  2. Exterior - Not sure if you would be a fan, but shutters can add a different look to the home. Landscaping definately helps. Go through Google images and look for different ideas. The cool part of having a house is making it your own. What I like may not necessarily fir your tastes. A lot of time on Craiglist in your area, under the free section, people give away free shrubs, flowers, pavers, etc. Cheap way to go obviously. Interior - paint, refinishing trim, changing outlets and light fixtures can change the look and feel without costing an arm and a leg. You would also be surprised on what crown molding and chair rail can do to a room. Changing blinds/curtains are some more ideas.
