Curb Appeal During The Winter

Winter Curb Appeal 

Curb appeal is important even while we’re in the middle of winter and some days can seem very grey and dark. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make your home look cozy and inviting, especially if you’re in the process of selling your home during this season. 

It can be the little things that can really make the difference when it comes to winter curb appeal. You can add some door decor, a bird feeder, or a fresh coat of paint can go a long way. The following is a list of tips that you can use to enhance the curb appeal of your home. 

Update Your Homes Numbers

That’s right, it can even be just changing your house numbers to new and fresh ones. Why not try getting a new mailbox, it can give you an instant upgrade. You can try going for something modern and sleek. 

Fresh Coat of Paint

Sometimes it can be as simple as adding a fresh coat of paint to your front door. Since your door is usually the first thing someone will see it’s great to add a blog primary colour, however, you might want to do this before or after the very cold weather. This is because most paints need at least three days of 12 degree weather to dry properly. 

Functional Lighting 

There are a lot of benefits to having good lighting on the exterior of your home, one of them being the safety aspect. Providing added visibility during the darker and shorter winter months is something everyone will appreciate.

Now this is a trend we can get behind. Floral wallpaper has been so popular this fall, adding another element of contrast to the room of your choosing. The vintage look is strong when it comes to floral wallpaper, you can get in in peel and stick if you’re unsure, for a less permanent commitment and easy application.
