If Christmas is your favorite holiday, it makes sense to surround yourself in an environment that turns the end of November and all of December into a time full of Christmas lights, parties, dinners, and more. Buying just any home is not going to do the trick, you will want to live somewhere that it snows. A white Christmas is a majestic experience that you should experience at least once in your life, if not every year. Buying a house in a cold climate that gets all four seasons will maximize the chances of this happening. If you want to turn your property into a winter wonderland, you should prioritize specific features.
Large Frontal Windows
A large bay window in the front of the home is a perfect place to display your Christmas tree. When you leave the window open at nighttime, you will see your tree in all its glory as you pull into the driveway. Neighbors and people passing by will also get a glance at your lovely holiday setup. If you have other windows that face toward the front of the home, you can get even more creative with decorations. Stringing lights around the windows and attaching sticky decorations to the windows are some ideas.
Most people that celebrate Christmas will get a fake or real tree for their home. This automatically makes green a huge color for this holiday, so it is amazing when you can enjoy it in your landscape as well. Prioritizing evergreen trees will ensure you end up with vibrant greenery, even after a snowstorm. The trees you should look for include cedars, firs, spruces, all of which look great throughout winter.
If you have a paved walkway that leads to your front door, you will have the perfect opportunity to line the walkway with Christmas decorations. Lining the pathway with overhead arches, Christmas lights, or even candy canes that you stick into the ground are some excellent options. Incorporating other decorations into the yard will truly make for a majestic experience walking up to your front door. Your home will become the place that everyone in your family wants to go to during Christmastime.
December may just be one month out of the year, but it is perfectly fine to focus on real estate features that maximize your enjoyment of the holiday season. Just do not forget about the other things your family needs.
