Make Your Home’s Curb Appeal Stand Out this Winter

Make the most out of your home’s curb appeal this winter. Whether you are selling your home or looking for a way to spruce up your home’s exterior, consider making these simple upgrades to increase your curb appeal this winter!  

Outdoor Lighting

According to ”HGTV,  as the days get shorter, having proper outdoor lighting will make your home safer and more attractive to buyers who come to visit at night. Try adding white tree lights or a lantern to the exterior of your home to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

Lawn Maintenance

Although lawn care can be tricky in the winter months, try to keep your lawn tidy by cleaning your gutters and removing any fallen leaves or debris. If you live in a climate where it snows, make sure to take time to shovel your front walkway and driveway.  

Clear Clutter

Make sure all lawn equipment and tools are put away to avoid giving your yard a sloppy look. This will increase your home’s winter curb appeal. If you have a shed or garage, consider decluttering and categorizing by organizing tools with cabinets and wall storage.

Cold-Weather Plants

Adding cold weather plants is a great way to give your home’s curb appeal some life this winter. Plants like pansies, witch hazel, and evergreen trees can survive in cold environments and can make a major difference in your home’s landscape.

Front Porch

Additionally, adding a wall-mounted mailbox and doormat is an easy way to give your home’s curb appeal a fresh look!
