Tips to End Summer: 3 Ways to Bring the Outdoors In

Summer is about to end. For many Naperville residents, it means spending more time indoors until the cold season has gone by.

If you love the outdoors, you’re probably dreading the thought of staying at home on weekends instead of enjoying a leisurely walk at the park, or enjoying other outdoor activities. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a recluse for the rest of the year due to the weather.

A well-tended garden looks beautiful all year round. The falling temps will lessen the times you can sit and relax in your garden. It doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t appreciate it from inside your home.  Here are some ways to enjoy the vibe of outdoors:

Replace Old Casement Windows with Bay and Bow Windows
Replace your old casement windows in Naperville with bay or bow windows. These types better extend out into your garden or front yard, bringing more sunlight in. You’ll have a better view of the outdoors, as these windows offer a sense of openness without sacrificing energy efficiency and security. If these don’t suit your home, think about installing picture or awning types.

Switch to Glass Doors 
Stay connected to the outside from inside your home with elegant glass sliding doors. Many home improvement companies offer this type of door with modern features, such as thermal efficiency, which also helps decrease your home’s energy usage.

Set Up Window Boxes
Enjoy a picturesque view right in the comfort of your home by putting up beautiful window boxes. Choose plants with bright colored blooms and put them right outside your Naperville windows, on the patio or deck.

Enjoy the view of the outdoors without worrying about the rain or the freezing temperatures.
