More than just a Beautiful Front Door Have you been meaning to replace your old front door but keep finding ways to put it off? Now may be the time to do it. The front door is an important part of any home for many reasons. Consider the following basic factors when purchasing a front door, regardless if you prefer a fiberglass, steel or wood front door.

SIGNS THAT IT MIGHT BE TIME • Is it difficult to close all the way, maybe it sticks or shakes a bit? • Has the lock become unreliable and difficult to latch at times, or doesn’t line up right? • Are you noticing water leaking in the bottom, does the floor get wet when it rains or is there moisture during colder, winter months? • Is rust or mold evident, building up on some parts of the door? HOME SECURITY Most people seem to enter their home through the garage these days or a back door. But, that doesn’t minimize the importance of having a well-functioning front door. Remember, the most common way that intruders might break in to your house is through the front door. A new, secure front door might be the first step towards securing your home, especially with the variety of locking systems available these days. ENERGY EFFICIENCY Not only will your home be safer with a new front door, it will be more energy efficient. An older door is more likely to have holes or leaks in it, allowing outside air to get inside and inside air to escape as well. No matter the weather, you will be leaking cold or hot air. It’s important to assess the quality of your front door and to consider adding weather stripping or purchasing a new, energy efficient door. CURB APPEAL The first impression of a house can be dramatically improved by the front door. Enhance the exterior of your home and improve curb appeal and resale value, especially beneficial if you are planning a move in the future. Since the front door is a focal point for most homes, a quality front door will set the tone and improve a home’s appearance. Assess your situation and consider replacing your old door with a new door that the neighbors will notice, plus provides some long-term energy savings and allows you to sleep more comfortably at night knowing your home is secure.

EXPAND LIVING SPACES WITH CLEVER IDEAS Homeowners looking to add more space to their homes do not necessarily need to make major renovations. They simply have to see the possibilities in outdoor living spaces. Outdoor living spaces are coveted niches in a home. The American Home Furnishings Alliance says more than 70 percent of American households have outdoor living spaces, and nearly 70 percent of people use these spaces at least once per week in-season. Furthermore, homeowners are increasingly interested in enhancing these spaces to make them more usable and comfortable. A recent survey from the online home design and remodeling resource Houzz found that more than 4,500 users were planning a landscape update. In addition, 56 percent of homeowners surveyed were making updates to improve their yards for entertaining. While the creation of outdoor living spaces can cost thousands of dollars depending on the renovation, homeowners have more budget-friendly options at their disposal as well. The following are some ways to create inviting spaces no matter how much square-footage is present. REVAMP A GARAGE OR SHED - Rather than turning a storage area into a catch-all for items time forgot, clean out the space and put it to better use. For instance, kids may appreciate their own clubhouse away from the main living area. These spaces also can be handy bonus rooms for when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate and backyard guests need to seek shelter. Wall art, curtains, a pendant light, and some comfortable outdoor-compatible furniture can quickly transform a space.

CREATE A RELAXING NOOK - Whether there’s a ledge, overhang, small terrace, or porch off the house, turn it into a relaxing area for reading a book or sipping a beverage. Use a few outdoor pillows, pull up a small folding table and dress the area with hanging lights and potted plants for a quiet retreat. ADD PRIVACY TO A PORCH - If it’s privacy you covet, install curtain rods and hang lightweight mesh or another translucent material that obscures neighbors’ views without blocking out natural light. Invest in outdoor sofas and chaises to create an outdoor living room right on the porch. If your budget allows, consider closing in the porch as a true three-season room so it can be used throughout fall, spring and summer. Outdoor living spaces are booming and highly achieveable, and many such spaces need not be expensive.
