Should You Turn Those Windows Into Doors? April 24, 2017

Should You Turn Those Windows Into Doors?, Green, Ohio

Deciding to install a door where windows used to exist is a bold home improvement move. As beautiful as both elements are, there are plenty of pros and cons in terms of both design and function that you should weigh when making your decision. Murphy Home Improvement of Cincinnati, OH, will help you make the right choice for your home with their expertise.

To start, consider what you require aesthetically for the space you’re working with. With the design choices available today, doors can let in just as much light as windows, but entrances may also require external additions such as stairs or walkways. If there are already enough doors to your home, adding another one may not be a good design idea. Windows usually only require minimal external treatment, such as shutters, and provide plenty of light to illuminate your interior décor.

windowsConsidering function is the next step. If you need a space to allow large items into your home or to allow an additional entrance into your home, obviously only a door will do. Windows and doors both come with security necessities that you will have to provide for as well—your budget will inform your decision in this regard.    

Whatever you decide to do, the installation of windows and doors are projects that should not be attempted in a DIY capacity unless you are a professional installer. For help with all your door and window installation needs, call Murphy Home Improvement in Cincinnati at (513) 922-8989. You can also see their website to learn more.
