While we want our home to look fantastic on the inside, it’s also nice when you’re approaching your home and it’s curb appeal is on point. Whether you have lived in your home for years or this is a new home, this article is going to give you some incredible ideas on how you can increase your home’s curb appeal this Christmas.
Pull out dead weeds and shrubbery
Not only do weeds and dead shrubs look bad, but they are actually bad for your garden’s health. Rather than procrastinating about going to dig up the weeds, spend the afternoon picking them out of the ground and treating any lawn areas you have to ensure that they don’t come back. Another good idea would be to give your grass a final trim of the winter to keep it looking as neat as possible.
If you have a driveway, you might want to consider repaving it to prevent any falls during the winter time. A great material to use these days is resin, and you can find resin driveway suppliers to come and assess your driveway to see if it needs any work.
Add some lanterns outside
Lanterns are super cosy to look at, and they don’t have to cost a bomb either. Head to your local garden center and pick up some outdoor lanterns which will automatically come on at night. If you opt for solar panel ones then you will be saving yourself a wiring job for your new lights. This will make your home look welcoming and also give light to anyone approaching your home this winter.
Clean your windows and add curtains
Over time windows get dirty due to people touching them, dirt that’s blown onto them from the wind, and also rainfall. Give your windows a good clean on the inside and out, and then consider refreshing your curtains to make your home look cosier from the outside.
Put decorative lights up
This one is mainly for Christmas and keeping in theme with it, but adding Christmas lights to the exterior of your home will add magic to your home for all those walking by and entering it. A cute idea if you’ve got a tree in your garden would be to decorate it like a Christmas tree. You can get outdoor Christmas lights from pretty much any hardware store.
Here are some other ideas that you could apply to your home:
- Repainting your door
- Adding new numbers onto your door
- If you have a porchway, add cosy seating and a heat lamp
- Change doorknobs
- Get yourself a new welcome mat
- Renew your mailbox (or add one if you don’t have one already)
- Paint your fences and gates
As you can see, there are many different ways in which you can increase your home’s curb appeal this Christmas and make it look more cosy. Will you be trying any of these?
