The exterior of your home is the part of your house exposed to the outside world: the part that people see and use to gauge what’s on the inside, and what type of person might live there. What does your house say about you, and what kind of curb appeal does it have?  If your home needs an update, replacing the doors and windows is a great way to give your Twin Cities house a facelift and create the curb appeal it deserves.

Adding Exterior Charm

Whether you are updating your home or selling your house, adding curb appeal is a sure-fire way to set your house apart from the rest. People love houses with charm, character, and a distinctive elegance. Bay windows are a stunning feature on the exterior of a home, as are picture windows or a series of double-hung windows with matching grids. Sliding glass doors can also be a real wow factor. You can change up the color of the frames to create a charming look against many exterior materials such as brick, vinyl, or wood. By adding any one of these features, you are sure to turn your house into a show-stopper.

Drawing The Eyes

If there is a particular feature on the exterior of your home that is unique or that you are simply in love with, there are ways to enhance this and make it a focal point for your home. Using the right doors or windows can draw the eye to that particular area and make it more attractive. For example, if you have a stellar deck area, adding a couple of sliding doors will really pull the space together and make it more inviting. Or perhaps your home has an interesting roofline that is quite impressive, by adding noticeable windows to the highest level of your home, this will automatically draw the eyes upward, giving your roofline the attention it deserves.

Complimenting Other Design Elements

Creating balance is one thing you want to consider with the exterior of your home. Have you ever driven past a house and it seemed heavier on one side? This lopsided feeling occurs when the design elements are not used to balance one another. They end up competing instead of complimenting. If you have garage doors on the left side of your house, try offsetting them with a bay window on the right side. This thought process will help establish harmony in the exterior of your home and maximize its curb appeal.
