Need help updating tired, outdated brick ranch!

We have recently renovated the inside of our 1950's ranch/rambler, but need help with the exterior! We have new windows (with white trim as opposed to the off-white pictured), we have a new black door and have painted the shutters and railings black since these photos were taken - the garage doors remain maroon. We don't have a large budget, but are contemplating painting the trim/siding white, the garage doors either black or white, updating the lighting, and improving the landscaping. I would love to paint the brick white, but am concerned about the upkeep. We have also discussed adding a portico or porch (ideally) down the line, but there are egress windows from our basement to the right (facing) of the front door, which makes a porch challenging! Any photos, suggestions, ideas are welcome!
