    Winter Curb Appeal is a Snap with these Seven Tried-and-True Solutions

    The weather might be frosty and bleak, but you can still create a charming property brimming with winter curb appeal.

    The colorful pop of spring blossoms, the lush greenery of summer, and the vivid hues of autumn are captivating. They effortlessly add appeal to every property. During the dreary chill of winter, though, it can be challenging to make your home’s exterior look inviting. That’s when some special tactics are in order.

    Here are seven easy ways to increase your property’s winter curb appeal.

    1. Create a warm and welcoming front porch.

    Your home’s entryway sets the stage for what awaits on the inside. Spruce up your front door with a fresh coat of paint in a shade that complements the rest of your home’s palette. Add a pretty accent wreath for extra charm. If any porch elements are in disrepair, be sure to fix them immediately. Top it off with enticing lighting fixtures, gleaming door hardware, and a fresh new doormat.

    2. Tidy up.

    Remove any fallen limbs, piles of leaves, trash, or other eyesores. Not only will it improve your home’s appearance, but it will help to keep visitors safe as they explore your grounds. This holds true for snow and ice, as well. Make sure the driveway, walkways, and steps are shoveled and ice melt is applied.

    3. Feed the birds.

    A decorative birdhouse can add charm and energy to an otherwise drab landscape. Add a coat of paint in a cheery red or vibrant yellow to bring a pop of color. This functional yard accent has the added benefit of providing refuge and refreshment to our feathered friends.

    4. Brighten up.

    The days are short during winter so find alternative ways to add light to your property. Invest in good outdoor lighting that illuminates the walkway, porch, garage, and yard around your home. Make sure all of the outdoor lights are working properly and replace the bulbs for good measure. Landscape lighting is a smart way to create an inviting glow while calling attention to your home’s exterior assets. Use them to highlight unique architectural features or beautiful foliage, for example.

    5. Add some greenery.

    In the gray days of winter, evergreen shrubs like arborvitae, cedars, boxwoods, holly, and junipers create a welcome splash of color. They keep your yard looking fresh and appealing throughout the winter months. If space is limited, add some colorful pots of evergreen shrubs on the porch or along the sidewalk.

    6. Opt for the charm of lanterns.

    Reminiscent of old inns, hanging lanterns and lantern posts add instant enchantment. These fixtures are available in an endless assortment of styles and sizes, making it easy to find a solution that suits your residence. If you don’t want to bother with wiring, simply place a battery-operated outdoor candle inside.

    7. Showcase fabulous outdoor living spaces.

    Do you have a gorgeous patio or spacious deck? Outdoor areas like these are on many buyers’ ‘must-have’ lists, so put them on display. Bring your furniture out of storage and set up the space as you would during the warmer months. Add colorful accessories such as cushions, lanterns, and potted plants to bring the area to life.

    Taking extra care to keep the exterior tidy and attractive will help buyers see your property in its best light. By following these simple winter curb appeal tips, you’ll give your home irresistible appeal that’s sure to get noticed.
