It's the holiday season! I love this time of year, but it can be hectic trying to get your home ready for family and friends. Here are a few tips for your home for the holidays!

Add crown molding in key areas of your home such as the living room and kitchen to make the room look larger, and more elegant.

The bathroom gets a lot of traffic so get rid of those worn out bathmats and replace them with new ones.  If your are looking to do a little more it's always a good idea to change out old faucets for new ones, and frame mirrors that aren't already framed. This will impress your guests and it's so simple!

Thank you for reading and I hope you found this blog series helpful!

Howdy everyone!

I hope you had an awesome holiday! I had many family members ask for more tips on how to improve the value of their home so I'm excited to get back.  Last time I wrote about the power of paint, and gave you some great color samples.  This week I want to go over how to update the hardware in your home.  

If you have outdated light fixtures and want to update you're in luck because this is an easy fix!  A lot of homes have outdated dome lights, these can be replaced with recessed lighting and updated fixtures to make your home look sleek.  I suggest recessed lights in hallways and over the kitchen sink, and replacing the decorative ones in key areas of the home with updated versions that appeal to you.

Now for the fun part...the interior! There are endless possibilities when updating to improve the value of your home but never underestimate the power of paint!

Painting is a simple and inexpensive project that can change everything.  Warm, neutral colors are best. Try to stay away from bright, bold colors except for an accent.  Taupe is a popular color, but I personally love and recommend the 2017 Sherwin Williams Color of the year, Poised Taupe.  I recently used it in a bedroom and it's an amazing mix between brown and grey. 

Grab a can of paint and let's do this! 

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more next week!

Continuing with the exterior, as discussed last week basic maintenance on your yard is a quick and simple way to create curb appeal, which can have a return of 3-5%! Simple tasks like adding new mulch to flower beds, keeping the yard mowed and trimming overgrown shrubs can make your home look clean and fresh. 

Not only is yard maintenance important when looking to improve the value of your home, but the cosmetics that make it up can make a world of difference.  Adding shutters to windows and replacing the front door is an affordable and easy way to update.  Not only does replacing the front door add another level of security but can have a return of 51%! That is major!

Stay tuned for more tips on how to increase the value of your home!

There are many small projects you can take on if you're looking to improve the value of your home on a budget.  Let's start with the exterior. Statistics show that basic maintenance on the exterior can have a return of 2-5%!

I know at my house there is always more landscaping to do but one simple way to make your home easier on the eyes is to give it a pressure wash.  At the local Home Depot, renting a pressure washer costs about $70 dollars a day. Pressure washing is easy and doesn't take a lot of time, you could have it done in a day or two! 

Take a look at these pictures and see what a difference it can make!

Stay tuned for more tips on how to improve the value of your home!
