Enhancing your home's curb appeal
(NC)-After a long Canadian winter, many homes need a refresh. Paying attention to the exterior of your home is just as important as making a statement with your interior décor. The home décor team at Canadian Tire has put together the following tips to enable you to give the exterior of your home a fresh new look, easily and affordably.
Update exterior lighting: Exterior light can be stylish as well as functional. Design a well-lit path by adding a lantern or pagoda-style lighting. With so many beautiful finishes available - pewter, stainless-steel and copper, to name a few - exterior lighting can add an attractive and luminous glow to your front yard or garden. Solar-powered lighting, available at Canadian Tire, is an eco-friendly option that will enable you to light up your home while saving money.
A fresh coat of paint: If the current paint colour of your exterior is starting to fade, a new coat of paint can immediately brighten the exterior look of your home. Consider a neutral shade for your home's exterior and use more vibrant colours for trim and accents for a soothing and harmonious look. Alternatively, if you don't want to paint the entire exterior of your home this year, you can simply spruce up your home's curb appeal by giving the doors, shutters or trim a fresh coat of paint.
Accent your address: House numbers can be an area where you can have some fun and experiment with different styles. For example, instead of traditional gold-plated numbers, look for numbers using trendy fonts, colours and backgrounds or try a plaque featuring coloured tiles to add some interest.
Flower Power: Choose textured outdoor planters and fill with vibrant coloured flowers, such as geraniums, petunias or snapdragons. Place planters on either side of the front door for a welcoming and fresh look. Alternatively, add brightly painted window boxes and plant small flowers that contrast the exterior contrast of your home to make the window boxes stand out.
