Top 3 Home Improvement Trends This Year

The home improvement scene is always changing to keep up with seasonal and modern trends. This past year, we’ve compiled a few trends to be on the lookout if you’re looking to update your home.

Siding

We’re seeing a surge in demand for darker siding colors, like moss-green or autumn reds. These colors are getting popularized from consumers watching home improvement shows on television. Up until recently, siding has only come in a few colors, not leaving much room for customization. Now, we have the technology to create lots of colors, and we’re seeing consumers opt for darker, richer colors. Darker colors also fade much slower than other siding colors.

Windows

Windows tend to be replaced or updated on an as-needed basis. Windows are replaced or customized usually when they aren’t insulating your home correctly. Classic white frames continue to be popular, but as with siding, we’re seeing higher demand for darker colored frames and grills. Hunter green and bronze are especially popular. Black frames are also a great choice for a modern-looking facade.

Roofing

Another as-needed product, you usually see roof updates and replacements when they become energy inefficient or suffer heavy damage. Homeowners usually opt for gray, brown or tan colors for their roofs, however there’s been a new trend which includes combining shingles in different colors for a more cohesive design.

How to Choose the Best Entry Door for Your Home

When it comes to entry doors, there are a lot of options to choose from. An entry door is crucial to the overall facade of your home, so you’ll want to customize your door to mesh well with the rest of your home, both interior and exterior. 

Your door should not only be an aesthetic choice, but a practical one as well. It should serve the purpose of insulating your home from the elements, privacy, and security. 

So, how do you pick the best entry door for your home? Here are a few things to keep in mind:

The material of the door. You want something that is durable and will last. Steel doors are (typically) the least expensive and provide the most security, and offer the best weather resistance as well as being energy efficient. Fiberglass doors are more expensive, need less maintenance, and provide the most insulation. Fiberglass doors can also imitate wood grain the closest, offering a variety of aesthetic choices.

The color of the door. You want something that will complement your home’s exterior. Dark wood grain offers an interesting contrast with lighter-color houses, and it works vice-versa.

The style of the door. You want something that fits with the overall look of your home. If you have a more intricately-designed facade, an intricately-designed door would mesh well with the rest of the house. Simple doors work for more minimalistic facades, creating a clear aesthetic flow.

The size of the door. You want something that is big enough to make a statement but not so big that it overwhelms the entryway. Sometimes a wide entry door can act as a grand entryway, or a smaller door for more simple designs.

The price of the door. You want something that is affordable but also looks great. That’s why TopLine offers top-notch designs for any price point. Whether you’re looking for an intricate fiberglass door or a minimalist and functional steel door design, we’ve got you covered.
