Ideas to Improve Curb Appeal of My Home?

Good Questions

Q: I live in a neighborhood where chain-link fences are all the rage. However, I believe my house as more potential and I find myself metaphorically hitting my head against a wall because I cannot seem to think of anything to give this dutch colonial revival any curb appeal. I realize that my house is red, red, and oh more red.

The railing on top of the little front porch is odd and unattractive and as soon as I get that 50’ ladder strapped to the top of my small sedan, I’m ripping it down. The dated landscaping has recently been removed and hydrangeas have been added although they are taking their time to grow. I’m looking for ideas, photos, sites, long term goals, and all of this on a budget. Please, any postings will be very very helpful.
