During the summer, many homeowners find themselves spending more time outdoors in their yards. The weather is warmer and there is more daylight to enjoy, so being outside to experience the beauty of nature and their yards is energizing. If you are looking for some ways to beautify your porch or patio to make it stand out, here are some tips.

#1: Focus on curb appeal.
Have you ever driven down a street where all the homes had well-manicured lawns, or well-decorated porches? Your front porch is often the first thing people notice when driving by or walking near your house. Creating curb appeal is easy. A brand new, energy efficient door is a great place to start. It will not only look great, but it will help make the space fresh and updated. Don’t forget the details on and around the door, as well. A new handle, a new door mat, or some bright potted plants around the exterior or on the entryway all work together to create an eye-catching porch.

#2: Focus on functionality and beauty.
What better way to enjoy summer weather than with a new sliding glass door installation? These are functional, allowing you to get in and out of your home, but they also allow for bright, natural light! We install a variety of sliding glass doors, including French in-swing or out-swing doors, stacking glass doors, and bi-folding glass doors that open like an accordion.  Not sure which style would look best in your home? Contact us today for recommendations on which one fits your space best.

#3: Invest in some upgrades.
When was the last time the windows in your home have been replaced? New windows will help reduce your energy use and give you a glimpse to the beautiful outdoors when you are not able to get outside. Not to mention, they add value to your home and can minimize sound. We are proud dealers of Milgard and Simonton Windows and Doors products. We can work with you to find windows that match your home’s style and most importantly, your budget.
