The best part of the holiday season is being able to spend more time with family and friends, especially those you may not get to see often throughout the rest of the year. While many homeowners take care to clean and declutter the house and tidy up the guest room, they sometimes neglect to give the same attention to exterior of the home. Here are some quick and easy tips to follow that will provide your guests with a warm welcome while showing your home to advantage.
Spruce up the lawn. One way to make a good first impression is to clean up the front yard. This can include getting rid of junk and clutter, raking leaves, cleaning out flower beds and giving the lawn a final mow. It’s also a good idea to sweep the sidewalks and driveway, as well the porch, after which you can lay down a welcoming seasonal doormat and set out a pair of pretty planters filled with greenery to add a little color.
Clean out the gutters. Once the walkways are cleared off, it’s time to look up – to the gutters. When gutters are clogged, the overflow goes straight over the side onto sidewalks and walkways. In cold weather, this can quickly lead to icy walkways that have the potential to cause dangerous falls that could injure your guests. Be sure to get your gutters cleaned out if you haven’t already done so to prevent this sad scenario.
Light the way. Outdoor lighting is a great option for beautifying your home as well as adding to its safety and security. Outdoor lighting is available in a variety of different styles, from elegant to festive, and provides illumination for the driveway, walkways and stairs to ensure a safe path for guests to traverse. Motion-activated lighting is a good choice as well for convenience and additional security.
