Give Your Home’s Exterior a Facelift before Halloween

Increase Curb Appeal before Halloween

Halloween is the perfect opportunity to showcase your home’s exterior. The front stoop can grab the attention of trick-or-treaters and parents. There are many ways to improve your home’s exterior before Halloween. Read on for some home improvements you can tackle easily before the end of October.

Update Your Entry

You can make improvements to your front entry on any budget. If you’re looking for a drastic change and you have the budget for it, replace the front door. However, if your budget is limited, a gallon of paint can also do the trick. Select a fall color such as burnt orange or burgundy to up your home’s curb appeal and welcome ghosts and goblins.

Make Deck Repairs

Whether your home features a full deck in front or just a small porch, simple deck repairs are another easy way to prepare for the season. Re-stain or paint the deck or add seasonal plants such as mums for a pop of fall color. Consider planting small evergreens that look great year-round.

Increase Exterior Lighting

Welcome trick-or-treaters to your home with improvements to your home’s exterior lighting. Solar-powered pathway lanterns that charge during the day and light up when the sun goes down can guide little goblins safely up your walkway. You can also upgrade your exterior lighting, as well as your home’s appearance, with new electrical fixtures.

These small, simple improvements are easy and affordable. With just a couple hundred dollars and a few hours on a Saturday, you can make exterior home improvements that ensure your house is Halloween-friendly and fall ready. Contact HB Home Services for expert advice on any of your updates or repairs!
