Windows and doors are a necessity, but they can also give your home originality. And, they can help protect your home and keep your energy costs down. You have options available to you that can make your home even more inviting. Here are six features that can help make your Minnesota windows and doors something really special.
• Sidelights. Do you recall seeing tall rectangular windows to the left and right of a front door? These are sidelights. Sidelights are a stately touch that guests can see right away when they arrive.
• Transoms. Transoms are the small windows you may see directly above doors. Transoms can allow more light to enter your home. Sometimes they have long horizontal shapes, or sometimes they are made of multiple panes. Available in many forms, they can add elegance to your home.
• Shutters. A classic look, shutters could be a charming addition to your home exterior. When you’re choosing shutters, look for models that are low-maintenance. That way, you can enjoy shutters’ appeal without having to spend as much time taking care of them.
• Colors. A fun trend is to make your windows and doors more colorful. Feel free to take a look at brighter (or darker) tones than you have considered in the past. Vivid window frames and doors can provide an appealing contrast to your siding.
• Storm doors. From Becker to Brooklyn Park, Minnesotans understand the need for protection against the weather. Storm doors can help conserve energy. They can also help keep your front door in great shape.
• Energy-smart windows. Features such as double and triple panes can help you keep your energy bills down. Also look for Low-E coatings, and windows that have Argon gas between the panes. Conserving energy can help the environment … and your budget.
