How to Refresh Your Back Entrance In Time For Spring

Apr 05, 2019

Just because it’s a back door doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have style.

Spring is here again, which means you can start to enjoy your outdoor space again without having to wear layers upon layers. That may mean that it’s time to spruce up your backyard, and particularly your back entrance. It may not be the most common entrance to your home, but it still needs as much love as the front entrance. From new patio doors to sprucing up the outdoor space around your Merriam home, here are a few things you can do to improve your back entrance.

Install New Patio Doors

If you want to refresh your back entrance, start with the back door itself. If yours is outdated — or just a little bland — you might consider looking into a new patio door. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we offer both hinged and sliding glass patio doors. Sliding glass patio doors are a popular choice for their extended outdoor views and extra lighting. The doors we offer from Marvin Integrity, are built to last with Ultrex fiberglass and, because of the material used to make them, they’re incredibly energy efficient. Hinged patio doors from ProVia are also made with fiberglass or steel, so they’re just as sturdy and can fit smaller door frames easily.

Thrive With Plants

Your outdoor space probably already has some greenery in it, which is why you love it. However, you can liven it up by planting a small flower bed near the back entrance or adding a few potted plants. This doesn’t have to be overstated. Some homeowners will take the steps of their back entrance and simply place small potted plants with succulents on either side of each step for a more natural effect. You’ll want to be cautious, in this case, of the direction in which the back door opens if you have hinged doors.

Add Some Seating

We’ve talked about patio doors: if you have a patio, you should also consider adding comfortable (but durable) seating. This will incentivize you to get out and enjoy your outdoor space more often. It will even give you more space to entertain. If you have a patio, place a couple chairs and maybe a small table there. If it’s larger, you can even add an outdoor sofa. If it’s a few steps outside the back door, you can go for a more natural look with a couple chairs spaced throughout the backyard.

"Thorough from start to finish. Cleaned up after themselves, even washed the windows that were just installed before leaving. Addressed all our questions and concerns as work was being completed. Justin, William, and Lynn were our installers and were pleasant to have on our property. It was enjoyable to do business with Justin Christie, as has always been the case when we used Johnson County Siding and Windows.”

"I had siding completed this week by Johnson County Siding. Don Bergman was the sales person, that I first met with. I found him to be able to reasonably show me the differences from the other companies I had bids from. I chose this company based on the type of siding available, and the general honest nature of his presentation. They were not the cheapest, but able to substantiate why.The team that did the work, Justin, William and Len were tasked with a lot of prep work. I felt they did a great job replacing all the rotten wood, etc. They were respectful of my home and cleaned up at the end of each day.”
