Add Some Warmth to your Yard
When winter hits, for months we’re surrounded by a gloomy dullness with the snowy weather. But even though it’s dreary and dull out, you can easily liven up your property with some touches of warmth and colour to make those winter months much more bearable. Here are our 5 favourite ways that you can experiment to give your home a boost and make your property pop in the dull months.
Add Bold Colours
Add curtains, accent items and decorations with bright or bold colours like yellows and oranges, and cool hues like lavender and ocean blue, to give your property a splash of colour that pops. You could also repaint your door, or create a bold feature wall in your interior to add more depth and vibrancy to your space.
Apply Decorative Vinyl Decals
Spruce up your home with some decorative removable vinyl decals! You can use calming winter scenes like birch forests, or even add spring and summer scenes to help remind you of warmer days ahead. Since they’re removable, you can apply them to your windows and even your walls without having to worry whether they will damage your paint or surfaces when you decide to remove them. It’s an affordable way to add some atmosphere to your property.
Enhance Your Lighting
You can use colour-changing light bulbs to add a little colour to your light features. These lights offer a magnitude of different colours that you can use both inside and outside of your home.
Install Dimming Lights
Wintertime is all about feeling warm and cozy. With dimmers, you can get the colour temperature that makes your property pop in the dull months and feel much warmer and cozy. Bright and functional light can gradually become warmer as you dim them, creating more atmosphere in any space.
Use Spot Lights
Outdoor lighting is great for highlighting special features of your garden and home. By adding in spotlights, you can create a winter wonderland and feature some of your landscape, architecture, and seasonal decorations. Spotlights work to draw in the eye and focus. This can make your outdoor garden or front facade look amazing while allowing you to show off some of those key features of your landscaping that you love, like your favourite tree.
