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?


  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.
