After you’ve lived in your home for a few years, your home may start feeling drab and outdated. Your house should be your escape from the outside world – why not transform it into the home of your dreams? Give your home the makeover it needs by starting a home improvement project. Your first thought may be to upgrade your kitchen or bathrooms. While these are attractive options, it’s important to think long-term: will you still like the upgrades you made five or ten years from now?
We recommend starting your home makeover by replacing the windows in your home. Though it may not be the most glamorous project, it will give your home the curb appeal boost it needs. With a variety of style and color options, you’re guaranteed to find the windows of your dreams.
Pick the Right Window Style for Your Home
Choosing replacement windows isn’t an easy decision – with so many styles, which is the best fit for your home? Replacement windows from Window Nation are available in a variety of style options including bay windows, bow windows, and double hung windows, our most popular style.
When choosing your window style, consider the location of the window. Double hung windows fit in most window openings, making them a great choice for most projects. However, if you’re looking to replace a larger window, consider choosing a bay or bow window. The unique shape of these windows adds character to your home, giving your home the curb appeal boost it needs. You’ll also enjoy the difference inside your home – these windows will change the look and feel of the room, becoming a unique way to showcase valuables or serving as a cozy seat to read a book or enjoy a cup of coffee.
Wood or Vinyl?
After you decide on a window style, choose a material that fits the style of your home. Vinyl windows are best for newer homes, particularly homes with vinyl siding. These windows will help your home feel more modern, particularly if you have outdated metal or wood windows. These windows are easy to maintain, keeping your home looking clean throughout the year. Vinyl windows are also a great choice if you’re looking to boost your home’s energy efficiency – our windows are Energy Star certified, so you won’t have to sacrifice curb appeal for lower energy bills.
However, if you live in an older home, it may be best to replace your windows with wood windows to keep your home’s historic charm. Like our vinyl windows, our wood windows are Energy Star certified, accentuating your home’s natural beauty without sacrificing energy efficiency.
The color of your windows can make a big difference to your home’s curb appeal. If your windows are old and stained even after they’ve been deep cleaned, it may be time to replace them. Whether you choose wood or vinyl windows, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of color options so you can find the perfect match for your décor. Boost your home’s curb appeal with stylish black windows or choose a neutral color like white or beige that will never go out of style.
However, when choosing the color of your windows, it’s important to select a color you won’t grow tired of. While you might love black or green windows today, will you still like them a year from now? Before choosing your color, consider your interior décor and any upgrades you plan on making to the exterior of your home. You might consider driving around your neighborhood to check out your neighbors’ homes. Though you want to give your home a curb appeal boost, make sure your home doesn’t stand out for the wrong reasons.
