These LED lights also consume more than 80% less energy when compared to standard halogen lights. The “quick-install wire connector” makes set-up safe and easy.
Get That Door Repainted
Painting your front door is a great opportunity to boost your home’s curb appeal. Colors that are more off the beaten path such as orange or teal can add a fun splash of color to your home and can be surprisingly refreshing. Just make sure your HOA won’t bust your chops.
