As much as you ensure your home looks great on the inside, if the outside of your property is starting to look a little tired, it may be time to think about which features need an uplift. New windows and doors are one of the easiest ways to give the front of your home the overhaul it needs, creating the best impression of your property. But what are some of the best options for you?
Choosing A New Front Door
A front door can hold a lot of character, meaning it’s a great way to define the overall look of the front of your property. Many people choose to upgrade their front door when it’s not functioning as it should, with anything from concerns about security, draughts or light encouraging homeowners to take the plunge. However, you can also use the opportunity to create a front door which is going to enhance the look of your property. There are endless design combinations you can select, whether thinking about the colour, furniture, panel shapes or glazing. You may even decide to add a splash of colour with a fanlight. If you’d like a traditional door full of character and charm, a composite door is often a great choice. They provide the look and feel of a wooden door without the upkeep usually associated with this type of material.
Replacing Your Windows
Most people realise installing new windows will create a fresher look, but have you considered the ways in which you can customise the designs? If you really want to give the front of your home a makeover that will make a huge impact, don’t just think about your standard designs. Many window frames come in any RAL colour of your choosing, as well as a range of finishes available. Moreover, if you choose a bespoke window supplier, you can find more ways to enhance the aesthetics. For example, if you want to achieve a heritage feel, why not add some astragal bars or select heritage style handles, hinges and window sills.
Adding a Porch
One option you may not have considered is adding a porch area to the front of your home. This is a great way to add more functionality with increased security, insulation and storage space. However, it can also transform the appearance of your property, making your home look bigger by adding a range of features from large glazing to beautiful brickwork. You can also customise the frames and porch door to create the desired look.
