“You want to do what?!” That was the look I got from my mom and friend recently while viewing a home that was in need of new windows. I had just mentioned that I thought black windows and doors would be incredible and they clearly were not on board. I sheepishly added quickly that they would look nice white as well, but it got me thinking about how some renovations might seem like a great idea in our heads, but what if they are too far outside the box for most people? Homes sit on the market all the time that have been renovated to someone’s particular tastes, which unfortunately clash with the majority of buyers.
When it comes to interior design I really like to push the limits. We hope to buy a house soon and when we do, I would love to go further than I ever could while renting, but is there a limit? Is wallpaper really a good idea? What about that trending tile? Suddenly those design ideas translate into expenses later and definitely need more than a little consideration.

Here are a few of my favorites that show why I think black windows and doors are a safe option for the Atlanta market:
