022621a - 4 Small Upgrades to Ready Your Home for Spring!

Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted 6 more chilly weeks of winter, but closer to home, Audubon Zoo’s ‘Parish’ the Nutria says an early New Orleans Spring is on the way!

That means it’s prime time for spring home upgrades – after rocking your Mardi Gras ‘House Float,’ of course. And these upgrades don’t always have to include a brand new front door.

At Doors of Elegance, our specialty and our passion has always been in front doors of all kinds. From traditional to modern, wrought iron, beveled glass, and our popular Fleur De Lis door collection – we love helping clients craft one-of-a-kind entryways with custom doors!

But did you know we also offer a variety of door hardware, transoms, and other accessories that help polish and transform your home inside and out?

Read on to learn 4 small (and inexpensive) upgrades that will help you create a spring home oasis ready for crawfish season!

#1: Add Fresh Door Hardware Throughout the House

Door hardware is often regarded as a subtle, functional accent piece that naturally comes along with exterior and interior doors. The truth is, though, you don’t always have to stick with what you get on a standard door. When it comes to doorknobs, door handles, entry sets, deadbolts, door knockers, finishes, styles, and more – you’re free to change it up!

If you’re more of a minimalist, you might opt for sleek utilitarian nickel or stainless steel door components throughout your home. If you love a traditional look, copper or brass door entry sets and doorknobs with attractive beveling may be your ideal look. And further, antiqued door hardware sets bring on the rustic feel everyone is loving these days.

Door hardware has the power to transform the look of your home into the exact style and vibe you’re going for. And it’s fairly easy to switch it up from time to time!

#2: Install a Regal, Eye-Catching Address Plaque to Mark Your Territory

Are your house address numbers looking more drab than dazzling? Is it hard for guests to find your home? Or maybe you’d just love a stylish and regal way to ‘mark your territory’ so to speak?

We get it!

Adding an eye-catching custom address plaque to your home’s exterior or in your home’s front yard entryway does wonders to set your home (or business!) apart from the rest.

We can also customize an address plaque fully with options for size, shape, color, and font to create the perfect marker for your property.

#3: Upgrade with Beautiful Custom Transom Windows or Door Glass

Transom windows – windows situated above doors, on one or both sides, or as part of a door – add personality, soft filtered light, and a layer of visibility to your entryway that often feels more secure.

From basic transom window designs to custom etched and beveled window glass – you can really transform your door into a signature work of art. We can also create custom windows for bathrooms, dens, kitchens, and anywhere you’d like!

Take your mailbox to the next level with a true ‘statement’ mailbox.

There’s really no limit to the customization. We offer traditional post mailboxes and mounted letter carrier mailboxes in your choice of finishes. You can even customize it with your house numbers, street name, last name, or business name to make it truly unique and iconic.
