Here are 5 points to remember when staging your home for a winter open house:

Pay attention to the curb

Making your house look inviting at first impression can be quite challenging during the winter months. Facades and porches tend to get muddy and grimy during this time of year, and living spaces may look darker due to the limited daylight hours. During open houses and visits, it’s important to ensure your welcome mat is clean, your windows look shiny from the exterior, and the front steps have been cleared of snow.

Go to extra lengths with your entryway

When the weather is bleak outdoors, your entryway should be made as inviting as possible. Consider putting out a wreath, urns with festive greenery, or Christmas lights integrated into the decor.

Crank up the heat

In the winter months, homes should be heated for several hours beforehand to ensure a toasty open house.

Use candles and strategic lighting

Candles can give your home a welcoming touch as well as infusing the rooms with a seasonal fragrance. Another way of playing with lighting is by using warm toned lamps to accentuate the coziness of the living space.
