A Glass Expanse
Usher in natural light, incredible views, increased warmth, and unmatched beauty with massive floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows in your main living spaces. The two adjacent window walls in this award-winning home by Rehkamp Larson Architects, Hagstrom Builder, and MartinPatrick3, for example, truly bring the outdoors in. Opt for black frames to be extra in tune with 2022 window trends.
Colorful Curb Appeal
If the competitive Midwest real estate market has proven anything over the last few years, it’s that every detail matters—and that starts with your home’s curb appeal. An easy way to make your property stand out? Take a chance on a bold color choice for your front door. Here, a light pink hue adds a punch of colorful fun and whimsy to the exterior of this Martha O’Hara Interiors remodel.
Double doors add a sense of grandeur to both your home’s exterior and the foyer inside. Plus, the various styles and material types available—from rustic, solid-wood options to classic, glass-fronted selections—complement every abode inside and out.
Elevate your living spaces with drapery that contributes color and comfort. Interior designer Lisa Peck of Minneapolis-based LiLu Interiors shares just how key these curtains really are: “Window treatments are an important part of how a space feels and functions,” she says. “They provide light control, offer privacy, and frame views. Shades and drapery are opportunities to add softness, color, and pattern to an interior.”
The Touch of a Button
Make waking up and winding down simple and convenient with motorized shades, easily controlled with the touch of your smart device. Great for hard-to-reach windows (like skylights), this upgrade is even more ideal for those with pets or young children, allowing you to eliminate dangling cords and strings that may pose a hazard to others’ safety.
