This is a rather nice interior. Is the photo of the front of back of the house?

I like your home and the house colours. I think you just need to update the deck and new railings.

I'd replace the railings and entry doors.

Thank you for the feedback. What railings would you use?

New color too?

I've been seeing a lot of stairs with darker rails and white spindles - here's an Ideabook I put together for a client who had the same issue - when you page through you'll see several examples, skip past the first photos - you might just make it work painting the spindles white:

Thank you. Ideas for new doors? I'd like to do glass to capture our view, but my wife wants a bit more privacy.

House has a midcentury modern feel.

From the interior view of the kitchen, it appears you have a Dutch door. If It's original, I wouldn't change it.
Can you add an exterior photo of the main entrance? Are you looking to keep the mid-century modern feel?

It looks like your interior is fairly traditional but the exterior seems to lend better to a more contemporary feel. I'm not sure how to mix the 2, but I thought these exteriors worked for your home. I like the full glass doors, or in the 2nd example here appears to be a smoked glass door that would give you the glass and your wife the privacy she wants. Are your windows new? I like the dark window trim in both these examples:

I think the dark paint and trim in this Grand Rapids home would look super cool.

For the railing, I was referring to the exterior porch. I like the wire railing at the link I posted in my comment above.
