Fall is a beautiful time of the year. The changing colours, the crisp air and the walkways covered in fallen leaves are picture perfect. Use these seven easy tips to enhance your curb appeal this fall, and your home will fit perfectly into this pretty picture
Paint Your Door
Give your door a fresh coat of paint! Painting the door doesn’t take a lot of time and can do wonders for your curb appeal. Your entrance is kind of like a first impression of your home as it is the first thing your guests see. For fall, try choosing a striking dark red or a burnt orange.
Decorate Your Front Door
Decorating your front door is a quick way to enhance your curb appeal. If you don’t have the time or energy to paint your door frequently you can freshen it up with some décor that suits the season. Try a wreath made of leaves and sunflowers for the fall.
Placing a couple of big pots full of seasonal plants on either side of your door or along the walkway can spruce up your curb appeal. To take it a step further, try planting similar flowers in window boxes around the house for a coordinated and polished look.
Keep Up Your Gardens
Stay on top of weeding your gardens. A home looks more put together when the beautiful plants aren’t hidden by an overgrowth of weeds. With all the falling leaves, it is important to make sure you rake them up often as well.
Install some outdoor lighting around your front yard to enhance your curb appeal even at night-time. The outdoor lighting will add a nice ambience and it will also ensure that people passing by can see the other efforts you have made even after the sun has gone down.
Holiday Garden Decorations
Visit your local home and garden store and pick up some statues to place in and around your garden for the fall holidays. For example, get some pumpkins for Halloween or turkeys for Thanksgiving. Enjoy some last- minute visits from the birds before they fly south for the winter by adding a birdbath or feeders to your garden.
If you don’t already have furniture on your front porch or patio, add some! Something as simple as a small bench or a patio table and chair can go a long way. If you already have furniture, try adding cushions or a centrepiece that matches your door and décor. As a bonus, you can put on a cozy sweater, grab a hot cup of tea, sit out on the furniture and enjoy all the work you have put into enhancing your curb appeal this fall.
Enhancing your curb appeal this fall can be fun if you get creative. Remember, less is more, so keep it simple and low maintenance. Happy decorating!
