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.

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.

Upgrades

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.
