When it snows and the days are dark, your home gets a beating from the cold weather. Make it stand out this winter with beautiful curb appeal! Your home’s overall value might increase when you enhance its curb appeal. Here are some tips and tricks to improve the overall appearance of your home and outdoors!
Enhance Safety First
First and foremost, you must ensure that your guests and visitors can make it to your front door without any accidents. Prevent slips and falls by clearing your driveway and pathway from snow by sprinkling de-icing mix.
Add Some Plants
Consider adding some cold weather plants to your front entryway. Plants and evergreen trees that can bear frigid winter temperatures, such as pansies or witch hazel, can liven up your landscape!
Add Color & Some Shine!
Winter can be gloomy and dark. So add some shine to increase your curb appeal. Pick out shiny, colorful garden ornaments to add around your home and backyard.
Clear the Snow
Fluffy snow can make a home look unkempt and untidy in the winter. Take time to shovel the walkway or use a snow blower on the driveway to keep paths clear and safe. Make sure all toys, shovels, and lawn equipment are put away safely after use.
Create an Outdoor Lighting
As the days get shorter, having outdoor lighting will make your home safer and more attractive for buyers who come to visit at night. Use a series of path lights to illuminate the way to your front door, or flank the door with decorative sconces or lanterns. Exterior lighting makes your home safer and creates a cozy and inviting vibe.
Attract the Birds
Add a colorful bird feeder to your front yard. A well-placed feeder adds color and life to an otherwise grey landscape.
Update Your Mailbox
If your mailbox is boring black, brown, or white, give it a winter makeover. Try some bright colored paint to help boost the appeal standards of your mailbox.
Replace Your House Numbers
Improve your curb appeal with some striking new house numbers. Go for a design that makes a statement, or find a style that speaks to your home’s character. Just make sure they can easily be seen from the street.
Simple tips and tricks can raise the attractiveness of your home and outdoors during the winters. Winter is more than just the snow and the cold; it is about harnessing the beauty that comes from the white flakes of heaven by enhancing your home and outdoor surroundings!
