A Place to Rest

Buy an attractive seating group to place near your front door. A bistro table and pair of lightweight chairs can create a romantic atmosphere before your visitors have even stepped foot inside. Or use a bench flanked by potted plants to provide color as well as a place to drop the grocery bags while you fish for your keys.

A seating arrangement also implies a warm neighborhood atmosphere where homeowners greet each other from their front porches. If your stoop is too small for furniture, place a pair of Adirondack chairs in your front yard.

Estimated cost: $500
