With the last remains of the warmer weather still around, there’s no time like the present to switch up your doors and windows. Whether you’re doing some seasonal sprucing up or building a house, there are a few things to consider when crafting a good-looking home. Roofing, walls, and gardens as well as doors and windows play a huge role in making your home look good. Doors and windows provide the perfect balance of style and function. They provide both privacy and an escape. Intimacy, safety, and character can be added to any home with the addition of a single window or door.
Your doors and windows make a big impact on how both you and others view your home. Depending on the size, style, and design, they can completely change the look of your home. If you’re new to home design and you want to make sure you put your best foot forward, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything you need to know about using your windows and doors to improve your home aesthetic.
First impressions and front doors
For most people, the first thing they notice about your home is the front door. Your front door says a lot about your personal preferences and choices. If your door is worn out or the paint is chipping, it makes your home look frumpy. Antique handles and accents look great if done well, if not, they can age your home and make it look tacky. If the handle needs a jiggle or the hinges are squeaky, it might be time for an upgrade. Refresh your door with a fresh coat of paint or replace any squeaky handles or hinges. The front door is the first thing and the last thing people will see before they enter your home, so try to make a good first impression!
Don’t forget about the garage
As well as regular doors and windows, your garage doors play a huge role in your curbside appeal. Wooden rustic or classic designs play into that upper-middle-class suburban fantasy. You can modernize your home with newer, sleeker garage designs. Due to their larger size, garage doors both leave a larger impact and have more moving parts. If you’re thinking about replacing or upgrading your garage this season, it might be easier to do it in parts rather than as a whole. Whether you’re fixing or upgrading, you can buy garage door parts that fit your desired style. Take care of your garage doors to elevate the look of your home and make it easy to get to your car, bicycles, or tools.
Accessorize your windows
Windows are the eyes of your home, and you want to make sure they look their best. One way to do this is to accessorize your windows with some stylish and functional add-ons. Shades, awnings, and blinds go a long way in adding a little something extra to your home to up the ante. Accentuate your french windows with vintage, rustic buckles, clasps, or handles. Decorate the outside of your home by decorating the inside. Use colorful, romantic embroidered, or sleek neutral curtains or drapes. Bars, grills, and window restrictors make both a strong impression and add an extra layer of protection to your home.
When it comes to doors and windows, color choice is very important. Depending on the material and texture of your doors and windows, a bright splash of color can elevate the look of your home. Dark browns, blacks, and neutrals are an easy way to make your doors and windows discrete and stylish. Darker bolder colors command attention and give off a sense of intrigue and mystery.
Bright and light colors add a cheery, whimsical feel to your home. However, they highlight impurities, so keep that in mind! Choose a color that fits best with your desired palette if you’re going for a specific color theme. The wrong color can make or break your home so make sure to find what works for you and stick with it.
Size and style
Size and style matter when it comes to how your home looks from the outside, especially when it comes to windows and doors. The optimal window size depends on the room. Windows in bathrooms and toilets should be small and foggy. The kitchen, living room, or even bedroom windows can be as large as you like. Larger windows look good from the outside and make rooms feel bigger, brighter, and more welcoming. Modern houses have sleek, wide, glass window panes that create an expensive and minimalistic look. If you want to make your home look more modern both inside and out, consider swapping out your smaller windows for something bigger and more open.
