Three Easy Ways to Add Holiday Curb Appeal {Guest Post}

The holiday season is upon us once again! This season’s celebrations often happen at home, so you want to make sure yours looks its best for family and friends. Check out these easy-to -accomplish tips for boosting your home’s holiday curb appeal from our friends at Beazer Homes.


  1. Light the Way

You don’t have to add strand upon strand of lights to create a warm welcome for your holiday guests. It can be as simple as making sure the bulbs in your porch light fixtures work and are bright enough. If it’s time to replace or add outdoor lighting fixtures your options are nearly endless. Make sure to look for fixtures that align, or complement, the style of your home’s exterior. Not sure what to pick? Check out this post to find your lighting style.

  1. Roll out the Welcome Mat

It doesn’t have to be a red carpet, but guests will appreciate a festive welcome mat to greet them at your front door. Invest in a sturdy, weather-resistant version to help protect your entryway floors and hallway floor coverings from the mess that winter weather can sometimes bring.

  1. Deck Your Doors

Depending on the area in which you live sometimes the winter landscape is less than delightful. Help create cheer for your guests by adding a colorful or metallic wreath on your front door. From holly, to something non-traditional like brightly colored ribbons, a wreath or banner on your door can create the perfect welcome. If you find your door isn’t getting enough light from your exterior light fixtures you can add a solar-powered stake light in front of your home’s entry for more illumination.
