Create curb appeal for your Auburn Home in the Fall

Fall is finally here! Chilled autumn breezes are frequent and football season is now in full swing. Trees adorn themselves in colorful foliage alerting their admirers of the new season. Fall signals the beginning of a years end. Here at Weichert, Realtors® – Porter Properties, we feel change is a good thing, and we hope after reading this article you can spruce up your curb appeal in just minutes!

Front porches/entryways are a big part of Southern culture, so whether you are in the process of selling your Auburn home or simply want to make it more inviting; there are several easy ways to create a welcoming entryway with classic Southern charm for your Auburn home.

Here are some helpful tips for your Auburn home:

1. Embrace the change in Auburn AL:

Adding a variety of color and textures creates an welcoming entryway to your Auburn Home

Objects beside your door or on your front porch should be appropriate for the overall theme or season. These items should be proportioned to your front entryway whether big or small. Don’t be afraid to use different sizes and textures in your décor. For example: For fall, a wooden chair could be placed by your door boasting a basket of colorful mums.

A variety of sized pumpkins could be stacked up front steps in an inviting manner, welcoming all who stop by. These items should add to your home not distract. Think classic and creative.

2. Color

Use colors that add to the feeling you are trying to create. A palette of warm tones, such as, yellows, oranges, reds and browns, are comforting and cozy.

Another great idea is the use of white pumpkins in the photo above to tie in the cream color of the home. Pumpkins painted with gold sheen (see middle photo) are shiny, sophisticated, and add a hint of elegance to your front porch.

3. Balancing Act

Painting an elegant sheen on your pumpkins gives your front porch a hint of elegance.

In keeping with the Fall theme it is also important that there be a sense of balance in the décor. A successful entryway doesn’t have to be perfectly balanced, but needs to be somewhat symmetrical in nature so the eyes bounce from color to objects. Varying the heights and sizes of different items will ensure longer attention from invited guests, potential buyers and neighbors.

These simple tips really can transform your home front in extraordinary ways with little cost involved. With the change of season and holidays just around the corner it seems appropriate to greet visitors and potential buyers alike with a warm welcome and nicely decorated entrance.
