Just because the days are shorter and the weather is cold doesn’t mean you can’t spruce up the exterior of your home. Whether you are looking to sell or dress up your home for the winter, here are 4 tips to enhance your curb appeal.
Clear the Snow and Clutter
A fresh snowfall can certainly look nice, but leaving your driveway and walkway unkempt will give your home a sloppy look. Cleaning up the snow will also help make your home accessible and safe for guests or prospective buyers. Make sure all toys, shovels and lawn equipment are put away as well to create a more clean and inviting atmosphere.
Winter provides us with plenty of grey days, so placing some seasonal greens around the front of your house will help add some colour to your home. Cold weather plants such as evergreens or plants with colourful berries add some interest to an otherwise drab space.
Bring The Indoors Out
Many homeowners think about what they can do indoors during the winter season to add touches to their home, but tend to neglect the outdoors. Adding outdoor décor such as a fire pit, string lights, or a faux fur blank draped over a Muskoka chair can create a bold, inviting statement to elevate curb appeal.
Adding some lighting to your exterior not only makes your home look cozy and inviting, but also makes your home safer- especially in the winter months when days are shorter. Take a walk around your home to make sure all lights are functioning properly. You can also add some flood lights or hang a lantern near your entry way for a charming look.
