Despite the cooler weather, you should not forget about maintaining your home’s exterior, particularly if you are considering selling your home. The exterior of your Markham home is the first thing guests and potential buyers will notice as they drive up to your property. To instantly impress and provide a more inviting atmosphere, here are four tricks to help you spruce up your home’s exterior during the fall and winter months.
Focus on Your Font Entryway
If the rest of your yard is covered in leaves or snow, you can still create an aesthetically-appealing entryway. Aim to keep this area clean of debris and garbage that may blow and become trapped near your door by sweeping it regularly. Add a festive or decorative welcome mat and include festive decorations near your front door as well. If you have an older door that is still in good condition, consider painting it to give it a fresh, well-maintained look.
Keep Your Yard Clear
During the fall and winter season, it can be difficult to keep your yard clear of leaves, twigs, branches, and other garbage that may fall and or blow into the yard. But, by keeping your yard clear, you provide a more aesthetically-appealing look. Plus, when you keep your yard and pathways clear, it is less debris that guests will track into your home.
Consider Fall Planters
Just because there is cooler weather, it doesn’t mean you can’t have bright and colorful planters in your yard. There are many plants, such as chrysanthemums, that do well in the fall months. You can even consider purchasing planters with wheels or small flower pots that you can bring indoors on those very chilly nights. You can even include festive items such as small pumpkins, gourds, scarecrows, etc., to add a creative touch to these planters.
Paint the Trim and Shutters
Once the leaves fall and your landscaping becomes a little dreary, certain aspects of your home, such as your trim and shutters, become more noticeable. At the beginning of the cooler season, fix up these areas on the exterior of your home. Sand down and apply a fresh coat of paint to help give your home a pop that it needs during the cold, long winter.
Don’t let the cooler weather keep you from sprucing up your home’s exterior. Use the above tips to create a beautiful, aesthetically-appealing outdoor space.
