When doing renovations, most tend to focus on the obvious spots in the house: the kitchen, the flooring, the paint, furniture, and more. Even smaller things like electronics, artwork, china, and small decor pieces get noticed. What a lot of people forget about is the fact that some of your outside renovations can 100% improve your experience when you are inside your home and even when you are away from your home, as well. Today, I will be talking about how to improve your home by focusing on things you normally would not think of, or put first when it comes to doing renovations, or additions.
An Outdoor Camera
An outdoor camera will improve the safety of your home and will make you feel more safe and comfortable living in your house, or being away from it. Break-ins are unfortunately on the rise in Metro-Atlanta and there are many things that we can do to lower to numbers. Even if you install fake outdoor cameras, this will improve the safety of your home because burglars are less likely to break-in if they see a potential threat. Another perk of having an outdoor camera is knowing that you closed the garage door (after second guessing if you did it or not), or knowing when the mail came and if your special package was delivered, or not.
Windows are a huge part of the outside of your house, but a lot of people do not consider that they actually matter a lot from the inside of the home, as well. If you think about it, windows (and some doors, of course) are the reason that you have light inside your home. If you get the wrong windows, you might not have as much natural light, or you could have a lot of air escaping your home, causing energy consumption to rise. Just like the actual windows, window treatments are extremely important, as well. Blinds, curtains, and window films all play into how much light you get, how much energy you use, and also how comfortable you are in your home. For example, Atlanta-based company, UHS Window Tinting and Blinds installs window films, as well as other window treatments, with your comfort in mind. Their window tinting reduces energy consumption, reduces extreme heat and cold, increases safety, improves glare, reduces fading, and more. They have been in the window tinting business since 2003 are award winning, so you know that UHS Window Tinting and Blinds knows what they are talking about when it comes to window treatments!
Atlanta home improvement says, “At times the importance of foundations can be overlooked, but ensuring that the foundation is done correctly from the beginning is crucial for the entire building. If a foundation is not set properly, the property will begin to show signs of problems as the building goes up. These issues are known as compounding defects, as problems begin to accumulate as the structure is being built. Foundations can be built from different materials, which are geared to making the foundation strong no matter the size of the property.” The foundation is everything when it comes to a home. Yes, it is overlooked, but if it was not for your foundation, you would not have a home. Please pay attention to it and make sure you are taking care of it!
Most thing that doors only improve the outside appearance of your home, but that is not true at all! The inside is affected, as well as much, if not more than the exterior. Choosing a front door is actually pretty hard. There are a lot of different materials that your front door can be made out of, so you have to decide which is best for your individual needs. Porch says, “The front door of your home says a lot about who lives inside. But selecting an entry door that fits your home’s style, adds value to your home, and is aesthetically beautiful can be an overwhelming process. Because a front door has the ability to add (or subtract) to our home’s curb appeal as well as safety, replacing it is consistently rated a high-value project for homeowners to invest in. According to Remodeling Magazine, replacing your front entry door is a worthwhile project as the value nearly exceeds the actual cost. When it comes to finding a front door that remains in your budget and exceeds your expectations, you have many choices – including colors, materials, design and safety.”
