Preparing Your House to Look Its Best
Are you looking to spruce up your home but aren’t sure where to begin? Well, whether it’s to boost up the resale value of your home or if it’s simply for yourself to enjoy, there are certain areas that can enhance your design, while giving you the most bang for your buck if you should ever want to sell in the future.
Here are some ideas to consider when it comes time to spruce up your home.
The flooring throughout your home accounts for a significant portion of the overall aesthetics. Whether your hardwood flooring has scratches or the tile in the kitchen has started to chip, a little TLC will make a big difference. If you are ready to upgrade vinyl or linoleum flooring in the bathroom or kitchen to beautiful ceramic tiles or slate flooring, now is the time. If you want to increase home value, consider upgrading from carpet to hardwood flooring as well. There are a wide variety of styles, colours, and materials available today that can suit your home, style, and budget.
Repairing Walls and Repainting
Repair any drywall, fill in those holes left over from old wall hangings, and apply a fresh coat of paint to brighten and clean up those walls. Wallpaper is back in style, so consider adding some texture and life to a room with a modern, eye-catching wallpaper design. Just as important are the little details, like trim, crown moulding, and wainscoting. These details can really help set your home apart.
Hanging new curtains, shelves or art work
Many homeowners are afraid to drill holes into their walls, for fear of getting it wrong, and so their artwork remains in storage in the basement, and curtain rods and shelves just never get hung. Don’t be ashamed about your fear! To Do Done has seen it all before and would love to help spruce up your home with a few personal accents.
Repair the Porch
Of course, you can’t ignore the exterior of your home. If you have a front porch that’s had better days, maybe with a few broken or missing steps, keep in mind that the front porch is the first thing you see when you approach a home. With a few minor repairs and a good coat of stain, it can enhance the exterior of your home and make it look attractive and inviting.
When homeowners are gearing up to sell their home, or simply looking to spruce it up, there are a variety of ways in which you can enhance your décor and overall design.
