Fall has arrived, which means winter will be right on its heels. Keeping your home prepared for the imminent weather is certainly crucial, but there are a number of easy DIY projects that can do double duty; protecting your home and updating it for the season.
Consider updating your established gutters with decorative downspouts. Copper and iron chain style downspouts add a decorative flair to your home’s facade while providing perfectly functional water redirection.
Window treatments should be considered for each season. While sheers may be the optimum summer treatment, plantation shutters can increase your home’s value and provide crucial insulation against those window-chilling winter winds.
Landscaping for warmer months often appears as bursts of color from annuals and vegetable gardens, but a seasonal garden showcasing winter greens and hearty native grasses will keep your garden looking vibrant well into the frosty months ahead.
Keeping your home protected from winter weather and looking sharp regardless of the elements is as simple as knowing a few DIY tricks you can employ at the dawn of each season.
