The #1 ROI to Increase Value in Your Home

If you can do one thing and one thing only to increase value in your home, it’s install French Doors at the front of your home. It’s the #1 ROI on increasing the value of your home in my opinion.


The main reason for this is light.  People buy space.  Light, open, and spacious is on every buyer’s radar when looking for a home.  Glass doors create an extra window of light. My home for instance has a western exposure in the back windows and sliders.  Normally, in the morning, my home would appear darker. However, our French doors in the front give extra light and everything looks more open and much airier.

There are lots of attractive and beautiful front doors made with woods and metals, but they do create an artificial wall as far as light is concerned.

Today, there are so many choices of stylistic front doors that are all made with impact glass.  You can also find lots of selections translucent glass where you can’t see through or blinds and other window treatments for privacy purposes.
