Spring is just around the corner and you might be getting ready to put your home on the market to sell. Or, you may love where you live but want to make it an even more attractive and enjoyable space for you and your family.
In either case, you could be thinking about curb appeal right now.
“Curb appeal” is all about making your home stand out and really pop from the outside. If you’ve ever driven through a neighborhood, you know what this means. Most of the homes you drive by might look similar to one another. They may even seem like they were all made from the same architectural design with window and door placement; but then your attention is drawn to one house in particular. It may have interesting landscaping, attractive shutters or a colorful front door. THAT house really sticks in your mind and, if you’re shopping for a new home and that one is for sale, you might go back for an open house.
If you’re not planning to move, that house may inspire you to make changes to your own so that coming home is even more pleasant than before! Adding a front door with sidelights is one way to really improve curb appeal.
One of the first impressions your home makes is your front door and the many options available with sidelights help you to…
- Make your home stand out. Even if you live in a neighborhood where the architecture is similar, you can easily use sidelights to set your house apart from the rest. Break out of the cookie cutter look!
- Get creative and artistic. You can choose art glass sidelights which are hand cut and handcrafted for unique color, texture and design.
- Express your personal style. With the many choices available, you can use sidelights to complement the decor you have carefully put together inside for a sense of continuity outside and within.
Show that your home has a special touch by installing a front door with sidelights.
Not only do sidelights bump up curb appeal, they are beneficial on the inside of your home as well. They allow in natural light so that the entry space is brighter and lighter. When they’re made from tempered “safety” glass with a Low-E coating, sidelights also add privacy, security and energy efficiency.
