Working during winter, to add curb appeal to the exterior of your home is a great way to break up the dreary, cold days. We tend to focus on the bigger projects like landscaping our yard with new plants and patios during spring and summer and forget about the little things that really add interest to our home! Today, our Raleigh garage doors team is here to offer a few tips that will help you add curb appeal to your home this winter!
Winter Curb Appeal Projects | Raleigh Garage Doors
Shutters and Trim
According to bhg.com, “Shutters and trim add a welcoming layer of beauty and curb appeal to your home’s exterior. Shutters also control light and ventilation, and provide additional security. Exterior shutters can be made of wood, aluminum, vinyl, composite, or fiberglass. New composite materials, such as PVC resins or polyurethane, make trim details durable and low maintenance.”
Revamped Front Door
This is the most effective and easy project for you to do in winter. Revamping your front door can provide a great deal of curb appeal. Whether you give it a fresh coat of paint or install a new one, your entryway will thank you! Now that our Raleigh garage doors are the new entryway to the home, front doors often get neglected. We rarely use the front door to enter and exit our home so it’s only natural to forget about the way it looks. Old, tired, paint-peeled doors are the best way to bring your curb appeal down. Just because you don’t notice the weathering front door doesn’t mean the neighbors and passersby don’t. In fact, the front door is one of the most noticed elements of the exterior of a home. Paint it a fun contrasting color or purchase a new craftsman style wooden door to add extra interest and give your neighbors something beautiful to admire!
Oftentimes, many homeowners forget about the little things that make an exterior pop with curb appeal. Winter is a great time to focus on these smaller, less important projects. Replacing wall-mounted mailboxes, overhead light fixtures, house numbers, front door hardware, and more can really make a big impact. Outdated and dingy hardware can take away from the hard work you put in on your other curb appeal projects. Consider using hardware in a bronze or brushed nickel metal for a trendier look.
Getting a head start on all these things, this winter, while the weather is a bit mild and easy to work in is a great way to enhance the exterior of your home and garage! For more tips on easy DIY curb appeal, visit back with us soon! Our Raleigh garage doors team is here to help!
