Help with updating exterior of 80's side hall colonial

We are currently undergoing a substantial remodel of our 80's side hall colonial, to include opening up the floor plan, updating the kitchen, and adding a two story addition off the back of the house with a family room and master suite above. We love our location and neighborhood and plan to stay until our kids are grown. However, the exterior of the home is a little flat and needs some help. It was just recently painted (same color as photos) and a new front door added that was painted navy blue. The front stairs definitely need to be replaced as the brick is crumbling. Would love some help coming up with ways to add more interest and curb appeal. Should we consider a portico when we redo the stairs? Beefing up the trim around the windows? Add shutters? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
