Homeowners by far are choosing to dress up their houses by changing their front door units out. Many of our customers are swapping their existing painted doors with sidelites and transoms for mahogany double door units, which are stained and typically have beveled glass. We are also seeing a fair amount of iron/glass decorative door units replacing the old front door units. Front doors are one of the focal points of most houses and are a great way to spruce things up.

Many homeowners want to increase their home’s curb appeal, and windows are a major element of the home’s exterior look – in many cases, they either add or detract from the overall ‘wow factor’ of the home. Windows add to the beauty of a home’s exterior; they can be used to highlight distinctive architecture or to complement the overall theme of the home, from classic to contemporary styles. By selecting different window colors, sizes, and grid patterns, homeowners can make a dramatic statement. Many homeowners are choosing windows to enhance the grand entry of their homes, creating a focal point that enhances the street view. Additionally, the right window selection can open up a room and bring outdoor beauty inside by enhancing views of the home’s surroundings.

Adding decorative grilles, also known as muntin bars, to your windows and doors is a great way to enhance the curb appeal of your home. These purely aesthetic grilles add visual interest by separating the glass into different panes, and they are available in a variety of styles to complement different types of architecture. Grilles can be incorporated between panes of glass – to enhance the look of the window without complicating cleaning – or they can be placed on the outside of the glass for a more authentic look. While they can make your windows more attractive, grilles can obstruct the view from inside the home, so they can be placed on the front windows only and not on the side and rear to maximize visibility. When it comes to window grilles, sometimes less is more, but drafting house plans with your preferred grille pattern can help ensure you will be pleased with the outcome of your selection.
