Right now, you might be enjoying the cooler breezes of fall while sipping a pumpkin spice latte, but the big holidays are just around the corner. The weekends from Halloween to Christmas seem like a non-stop whirlwind of parties, decorating, house guests and large family dinners. Before you deck the halls and hang the Christmas lights, take a look at your home’s exterior paint and see if one of these painting projects might take your home from pretty good to stunning before the holidays.
Fence and Porch Railings
Your property’s fencing and porch railings are a great place to accent with holiday lights and trimming, but are they currently in tip-top shape? Fading or flaking paint on your home and property’s periphery is probably not something you want to draw extra attention to. Updating the paint will make these parts of your home ready for the spotlight.
House Trim and Shutters
Freshening the paint on your home’s trim and shutters does more than beautify the exterior, it also protects the wood underneath from the harshest of winter’s elements. Trim accounts for a small portion of your home’s exterior, but it has a significant impact on your home’s overall appearance. Choose a bright white or beautiful contrasting hue to make your home’s trimmings pop.
Entry Doors and Stairs
Giving your main entry door a fresh coat of paint is a tried and true way to bring a new vibe to your home’s overall look. Have you considered painting the stairs as well? Whether wood or concrete, accenting the stairs with a brilliant shade gives your front entrance a strong focal point to draw the attention, and envy, of visitors and passersby alike.
Whole House Holiday Overhaul
Is your house the creepiest Halloween haunt on the block? Fading trim, peeling paint, spooky shutters? If so, maybe the first holiday gift you should give yourself is the gift of a freshly painted home. When hosting guests and family for Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas gift exchanges, you want to feel confident that your home looks its best.
