The best realtors in Colorado Springs have some tips on how you can improve your home’s curb appeal and make it warm and inviting. Check them out below!
Having beautiful fall foliage can help brighten up your home and add more curb appeal. You’ll want to be careful though. You won’t want to slack off on lawn maintenance during the fall season. Frequently raking up fallen leaves and patching brown spots in the grass is important.
Once your lawn is spruced up, you can add some spice with color. Once your summer plants start to fade, replace them with vibrant mums or other colorful seasonal flowers.
Front Door Focal Point
No matter the time of year, making your front door a focal point of your home’s exterior is always a good idea. During the fall, a simple wreath of fall foliage or flowers can add warmth and create an inviting atmosphere. You can also make sure your front door’s paint is fresh and isn’t cracked or chipping.
Line Your Steps
Mums – these are such a staple during the fall. Once the buds begin to open, you will have blooms regardless if your flowers are in the shade or the sun.
Pumpkin topiaries – if you have a long entryway, going with vertical decorations make a big statement and draw the eye up towards the front door. Topiaries are fairly easy to create and you can make them all the same or make each one unique.
Paint them – Metallic paint makes ordinary pumpkins extraordinary. You can use stencils to create shapes like circles or a rectangular pattern.
Helpful hint: Group the painted pumpkins together by the fireplace to add some extra sparkle, especially when the fireplace is on.
Etch them – You can carve your house number, your initials, or your name into a pumpkin. These make great front entryway pumpkins.
Floral pumpkins – you can cover a carving or soft-skinned pumpkin with different types of flowers. Mums are a great choice for this since they are in season.
Helpful hint: If using real flowers for an event, keep your floral pumpkins in the refrigerator until right before the party starts.
Tack them – you can use upholstery tacks to create a graphic look to your pumpkin. Use all different shapes and sizes to create different patterns and designs.
Helpful hint: Paint the pumpkins a solid color before tacking them with designs. White pumpkins usually work best, they create a great contrast.
Fall Foliage Arrangement
These beautiful centerpieces are a great way to add that fall pop of color to your home. The key to arranging these is to group the leaves by size and color. Similar to how you would arrange flowers. A red maple color makes a beautiful focal point when mixed with gray-greens and deeper reds and browns.
Helpful hint: If you create the arrangement with faux leaves and branches, this will last for years to come. It might be a little costly up front, but it will be reusable for the next few fall seasons.
