Decorate Your Front Door

When guests visit your home, they wait by the front door to be let in. With this in mind, you will want to have an entryway that looks inviting. If the colors are fading from Pennsylvania weather, it may be time to give your door a paint job. Once you touch up the paint, you will want to decorate the door to express your family’s character. You could hang a holiday wreath or add a stylish door knocker. If you’re willing to spend more money you can also try installing a window.

Buy a New Door Mat

The door mat is where everyone wipes their feet before they enter your home. After a while, your door mat will get frayed and dirty. When this happens, you should buy a new doormat. Changing this small detail will tell passersby that you take care of your home. It shows that you do your best to keep it neat and clean.

Clean the Windows

Another simple solution is to clean your windows. It should only take a few minutes to clear off the cobwebs and wipe your windows with cleaner. With a little effort, your windows will sparkle. The view out of your window will improve as well. You can also think about adding shutters around your windows. This is a great way to frame your windows and add a touch of color to your home.

Update Lighting

Neighbors don’t just view your home during the day, they pass by at night as well. If you don’t have much lighting, your home can look dark and scary at night. Add some landscaping lights to make your home look serene and peaceful at night. You can add a few spot lights or line the walkways with small solar lights. White Christmas lights can also help certain areas seem more romantic.
