Fall is officially here, and whether you're planning for trick-or-treaters or hosting family and friends for game days or holidays, it's the perfect time to refresh your home's curb appeal and tackle small outdoor projects while the weather is mild. By updating lighting, adding some extra seating to your porch or patio and doing some simple paint projects, you can create your own HGTV-worthy makeover with just a few finds from Walmart. Make a good first impression with these stylish, budget-friendly finds that will make your home look like the most inviting one on the block, and browse more affordable products for updating your porch at Walmart.

Update Your Lighting

As the days get shorter, good lighting can have one of the biggest impacts on your home's curb appeal. Brighten up your outdoor space for trick-or-treaters, holiday visitors and neighbors with a set of wall mounts or a strand of LED cafe string lights. If you plan on decorating with Christmas lights or even light-up Halloween decor, you need to add this outdoor smart plug to your cart. Our editors love it because it's easy to install, does not require a hub, has no lag at all and can cover outdoor outlets up to 300 feet from your home's Wi-Fi. You can control it from an app on your phone and set schedules so you never have to think about when it's time to turn the Christmas lights (or string lights) on and off.

Harness the Power of Paint

You don't have to paint your home's entire exterior to increase your curb appeal. Simply painting your front door can have a huge impact, and you can do it yourself in just a weekend. Generally, exterior paint with a semi-gloss or gloss finish is best for front doors because it's more resistant to wear and tear and easier to clean. Plus, it highlights a central architectural feature of the front of your home. We love this inviting, moody blue color, but Walmart has tons of exterior paint colors to find your perfect match.

Upgrade Your Outdoor Seating

Whether you need a set of rocking chairs for a front porch to enjoy the fall weather, a place to eat outside for holiday gatherings or even a simple garden bench, Walmart has a variety of options that won't break the bank. We love this three-piece rocking chair and table set that's a great deal, ringing in at just over $350. As the weather gets cooler, it's important to consider how weatherproof furniture is before buying, especially if your outdoor space isn't covered or snow and severe temperatures are common in your area for fall and winter. One great option for weather-resistant seating is this resin storage bench. Not only does it provide seating, but it can store all of your extra cushions, outdoor throw pillows and decor and protect them from the elements when not in use. If dining furniture is your priority, this weather-resistant bench converts into a table — genius! You could buy one for a smaller space or go for two to have a full-size picnic table when in the dining configuration — perfect for enjoying meals outside during mild fall weather.

Improve Your Home's Security

With holiday shopping upon us, there's probably a good chance you'll receive more packages than normal in the coming months, which means your home may be at risk for porch pirates. Fall is the perfect time to add a doorbell camera or security system to keep an eye on things and give you the peace of mind that all of your special holiday gifts will end up in the hands you intended them to. With a 4.6-star rating, this VIK V30 Doorbell Kit is everything you would need in a smart home doorbell with a 1080P camera, two-way audio and the ability for you to detect motion in the day or night with infrared night vision. The Wi-Fi-enabled doorbell is waterproof, so you don't have to worry about rainy days and stormy nights because it is always online.

Add Cozy Decor and Accessories

Fall is a great time to refresh your outdoor pillows, swap the wreath on your door for a fall one and add planters for fall blooms like mums and winter blooms like poinsettias. Outdoor planters can get expensive though, so we love these options from Walmart. Adding pillows, poufs and cushions is an easy way to change up a color scheme on a porch or patio. And if you have fabric accessories or furniture that are worn but you want to keep, consider adding this weatherproofing spray to your cart. It helps restore the weather-resistant coatings of outdoor furniture and can help you get more life out of what you already have.
