Welcome The Sun In: Refresh The Exterior of Your fenHome This Spring

17th March 2023 |


Chartwell Green Sash Windows

Spring is a great time to tackle home renovation projects. With warmer months just around the corner, you may be thinking of sprucing up your property, both inside and out. From upgrading your windows with modern uPVC to installing a veranda, here are four ways you can improve the exterior of your home and welcome the sun in this spring.

Upgrade your windows

Upgrading your windows is an excellent way to freshen up your home’s exterior as well as improve its interior with enhanced comfort and aesthetics. Whether you’re looking to improve your home’s appearance, enjoy more natural light and better views or save on costly utility bills, new windows can offer a variety of benefits for homeowners.

Available in your choice of uPVC or aluminium, modern windows also enhance the look and feel of your home, improving the kerb appeal of your property which can make it more attractive to future buyers. With a wide range of styles and finishes available, you can also choose windows that complement the architectural style of your home as well as your own personal tastes.

Install a new exterior door

If you like the idea of creating a seamless transition between your internal living spaces and your garden or patio, you might like to consider installing a new uPVC or aluminium door this spring.

Nothing says spring more than indoor-outdoor flow. Installing a new door can bring the outside in. From large parties to intimate get-togethers, pairing a new door with a patio, veranda or garden can create the perfect setting for social gatherings as well as enhance the kerb appeal of your property.

Like uPVC and aluminium windows, modern entranceways come in all shapes and sizes. The style and material you choose will ultimately come down to the specifications of your property, its architectural era and of course, your own personal preferences.

Styles of doors

White uPVC French DoorDifferent styles of modern doors include…

  • French doors – French doors are double doors featuring multiple glass panes. Originally engineered to allow an influx of natural light, French doors can be used internally within your home or as an external entranceway. They can also add a touch of elegance with historical aesthetics reminiscent of a bygone era.
  • Sliding patio doors – As the name suggests, sliding patio doors slide open and closed on a durable aluminium track. Simple yet innately traditional and practical, sliding patio doors make an excellent choice where space is limited and can be engineered in your choice of aluminium or uPVC.
  • Stable doorsStable doors are divided horizontally, allowing the top and bottom halves to be opened and closed independently. They are often used internally in kitchens but can also bring a sense of countryside charm to your home with aesthetics evocative of traditional rural gardens.
  • Bifold doors – Bifold doors are made up of several panels that fold in on themselves, like an accordion. Undeniably modern with slim frames and expansive panes of double-glazed glass, bifold doors take up minimal space when fully opened. They can also be thrown back in the warmer months to allow for maximum airflow and are ideal for bringing spring into your home.

Install a porch

A porch, also known as a front porch, is a covered, external canopy that extends out from your door and is supported by your choice of walls or dwarf walls. Often placed as a façade at the front of a building, modern porches come in all different shapes and sizes. A porch can give your property a more symmetrical look and is ideal for maximising space – from coats and shoes to bikes, scooters and pushchairs.

More than just a large mailbox, an elegant front porch can also provide you and your family with a versatile internal space. Here in the UK, they often house the entrance door of a home and can be a useful spot for drying off the dog, removing muddy boots and hanging coats on drizzly spring days – without traipsing mess into your living spaces.

While not as spacious as a conservatory or a full extension, installing a porch still boasts several lifestyle benefits for the modern homeowner. Porches can provide your home with an attractive, practical entranceway, as well as create an additional barrier between your internal living spaces and the outside world. This additional barrier provides a little extra security, better energy efficiency ratings and of course, the feeling of ascending into your home each time you enter.

Install a veranda

A veranda is a sheltered, open-air gallery. Similar in style and grandeur to a traditional conservatory, a veranda gives you and your family the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air with a panoramic view of your garden, regardless of the season. During the warmer months, you can shelter from the heat while still enjoying a breeze. In the cooler months, you’ll still be able to reap the rewards of a cool breeze from under the shelter of your veranda roof.

uPVC Windows For Heritage Homes

Essentially, with a veranda, adverse weather conditions no longer have to limit your activities outside. Ideal in the springtime, you’ll still be able to enjoy your hobbies or even work from home in a protected outdoor space with fresh air and natural light. A veranda can also provide additional living space and, when paired with the right door, can create a seamless indoor-outdoor flow that can increase the value of your home.
