Summer is a great time of year to entertain, whether indoors or out. You’ve probably cleaned the kitchen and living room to prepare for friends and family to visit, and may even be enjoying a deck or patio for outdoor entertainment. But what about your windows? Your windows — and doors — can make a big difference when it comes to your entertainment in your Des Moines home this year, in ways that might surprise you. Your guests are sure to be impressed by fresh new windows and doors, and it might heighten the enjoyment of the day.
Your windows and doors are an important part of your home’s first impression to family and friends. It’s your entry door that greets people into your home, and your windows serve as eyes to your home, both inside and out. A bold, beautiful entry door will help the rest of the entrance of your home look more elegant and stately. New windows provide a fresh look, and even give off an impression of cleanliness. It’s these elements of your home, more than many others, that need to look fresh and pristine to make the right impression.
Lighting is key when you’re entertaining indoors. No one wants to sit around a dim living room, and relying too heavily on electric lighting can mean higher electric bills at the end of the day. Your windows, however, let in natural sunlight that fills and illuminates the room in a soft, pleasant way. The larger the window, the more extended views it allows, which will help the room to feel more open and conducive to entertaining. If you have a particularly beautiful outdoor space, it will also add to the aesthetic of the room and the enjoyment of your guests.
Want to add more extended views and blend your indoor and outdoor entertainment space? Consider a sliding glass patio door.
Energy efficient windows are a big trend lately, and for good reason. They help you to reduce your energy bills and your environmental impact, add value to your home as well as keep your home more comfortable. And that’s where they come in handy for entertaining. The better sealed a window is, the less it allows your heating or cooling to escape through the window, an effect which can cause drafts or hot, stuffy spots in the home. With tightly sealed, energy efficient windows, your home can stay comfortable for your guests without you having to hike up your heating and cooling bills.
