Keeping up appearances during cold weather can be a chore, but there are easy ways to amp up curb appeal without much fuss. Here, Hometalk community bloggers share tips and tutorials for maintaing all of the essential elements of a cozy curbside space.
No matter the climate, to keep your home appealing, add pops of color in whatever way you can! Give patio furniture, or even your front door, a fresh coat of bright paint to add a bold accent to your curb appeal.
In lieu of the blooming plants and flowers that are abundant during warm weather, add urns of pretty branches to give some life to your front porch and entryway. Replace branches often, and even mix them with winter logs and sprigs of berries.
Illuminate your home inside and out to create an inviting look. Make your own lights or lanterns for porches and gardens, or install convenient lighting along your pathway.
If your garden is looking drab, make it a drop more interesting by adding fun and eye-catching garden ornaments! Don’t get too kitschy if you’re looking to sell, but adding one key accent piece is a great way to draw attention away from your hibernating flower bed.
Believe it or not, when it comes to winter curb appeal, passers-by will consider your window treatments in their first impression of your home. Because there won’t be as much colorful or lively distraction in your yard during cold weater, make sure that your window treatments are appealing and attractive.
You don’t always have to add new items to amp up your curb appeal—sometimes, you already have what you need to impress guests, only in need of a little reviving. Use the winter months to upgrade crumbling walkways, faded mailboxes and chipped paint.
Colder weather is a great time to think about adding a nice fence around your yard or garden to give your property clear boundaries and an obvious frame. Give your fence a coat of paint or try adding some lights, for additional embellishing.
