My wife and I have owned this house for 14 years. We're finally getting around to fixing up the front. I'm about to install new windows. We're throwing around a few other ideas. Any input would be appreciated. Our main concern is that the house looks too plain and uncoordinated.

1) We may increase the size of the window and door frames? Thoughts?

2) We may build a wider step/deck and place a roof over it. Essentially a front porch. I'm unsure how the roof would best fit over such a porch? Thoughts?

3) We will change the color of the front steps for sure.

Are there other ways to spice up the front of this house?
