June 7, 2017

Are you ready to make a change to some of the exterior entrances of your home? Making these upgrades can change the overall ambiance of your space and give you another place to spend time with family and friends. Learn tips on ways to enhance your front porch, sunroom or deck from your go-to Boulder roofing company.

Front Porch

Your front porch and overall exterior of your home is the first impression of your home. If it is lackluster or run down, it’s time to make some enhancements! Updating this area of your home can not only create a space you love to spend time in, but also can increase the value of your home thanks to better curb appeal. If your front porch is just a small space with an awning and small step up that leads to your door, there are still updates you can make. One of the top enhances you can make are lanterns on both sides of your door for both décor and practical use. Next, if your front door is in poor shape, update it to a style that matches the overall look and feel of your home. If the awning is in poor shape, paint it to make it look like new. Last, dress it up a little with plants and décor. You don’t want to overdo it but even adding one or two pieces can make the space pop.

Sunroom

Sunrooms are great places to have your morning cup of coffee, a meal, get work done and so much more. These dynamic spaces are a great addition to any home. If yours needs some work, there are a few quick updates you can make. First, consider installing energy efficient windows. This will help cut costs all year long. You can choose the type of windows you like to let just the right amount of light in that you prefer. Next, think about what you use the space most for, or what you would like to use the space for. If you find yourself working, consider adding a desk or at least some electrical outlets strategically near places you sit. If it is for lounging, invest in a premier seating area. For meals, find a table that matches the room’s décor. If there is enough space, it can be convenient to add a mini-fridge for late nights that you spend in the space.

Deck

When it comes to enhancing your deck, one of the first things you can do is sand and re-stain the wood for an appearance that is like-new. You also have the option to change the color then choose patio furniture that matches. You can invest in weather-proof outdoor furniture that is a great addition for relaxing or entertaining. Add an umbrella to a table to help shield the sun during the day. For night, install string lights that glisten and keep the area well-lit at night. If you have pets or children and need to ensure their safety, you can install solid railings around the area of your deck.
