Installing stylish interior doors and replacing old exterior trim are two great ways to make your home look even better today and sell it for more later.
New doors add style
Doors can offer so much more than entry into a room. Because they are made in various panel designs and can be easily painted or stained, interior doors have become a key part of a home’s overall decor.

Molded interior doors are made to resist swelling, shrinking, cracking and splitting. Many companies also make eco-friendly doors that coRead More

From the beginning, Warren Window & Supply has revolved around family. In 1982 the father and son combo Paul and Dan Warren started their own business selling Marvin Windows & Doors. After convincing Marvin Windows to let them sell their product, Paul and Dan started distributing in western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming. In a time before computers, all window orders had to be done by hand. Luckily, Paul Warren was known for his perfect penmanship. He wrote everything for the company including orders, invoices, and statements. The first delivery Warren Window & Supply ever received was a 15 window order. Dan still remembers the big yellow and brown truck arriving to their store. As time moved forward, so did the Warren family. The trucks got bigger, the company expandRead More

Barn doors on sliders are one of the hottest trends in design right now and one of the many things Pinterest has made me fall in love with. As much as I love them, I wasn't sure I really had a place to hang them in my home. However, after analyzing every doorway in my house, I found a perfect place and was instantly excited about my next project. Remember, sliding doors are not just limited to traditional doorways in your home. Use them as a room divider, closet doors or for pantry doors. I decided to hang mine in front of an opening to a hallway that leads to bedrooms, a bath and laundry room in my lower level. Although I was primarily wanting the doors to add style and interest, they have actually turned out to be very functional as well.
With my home having a more traditional fRead More
Warmer weather and sunnier days are on their way and many homeowners are itching to begin home improvement projects. If you are one of them, consider these areas of your home when prepping for spring.
Windows and Doors
From a full window replacement to a simple coat of paint, updating your windows and doors can have a big impact on your home.
If your windows felt drafty this winter, it may be time for replacements. Replace your old single-pane windows with energy-efficient double-pane windows. Double-pane windows can help you save on heating and cooling bills; they help keep the temperature in your home consistent year-round and help protect your furniture, carpet and window treatments from the sun's fading rays.
Need to bring some fresh color into your home but don't wRead More
