Looking For A Change? Five Home Updates That You Won’t Regret
  • Opening Intro -

    Sometimes, change is necessary.

    Often times, a homeowner will know they want or need to update their home's style, but aren't sure where to start.


There are many ways to update a home without breaking the bank or living in a demolition site. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Break Up With That Old Bathroom

Painting cabinets, installing a new sink and updating fixtures are all simple ways to update the bathroom without breaking the bank. If you want to do a little more, consider replacing the tile in the shower, installing a new, updated bathtub and putting in new flooring. A few new coats of moisture resistant paint in a fun color will tie the project together nicely.

Pretty Up With Paint

Even a coat or two of a single new color will spruce up the most tired room, but getting creative with accent walls, stripes and textures can breathe new life into dead space. You can also stick with neutral colors and add color to one accent wall for a subtle change that isn’t boring.

Make it Marvelous With Molding

With so many varieties and styles of baseboards, crown molding and chair rails available, simply nailing some expertly cut wood onto the walls can improve the whole feel of a home. If the budget is tight, just update the main floor or most used areas in your home.

Flip for New Floorboards

With lots of do-it-yourself tutorials online, new snap-together options and an endless variety of styles and price points, installing new flooring can provide instant gratification on a budget and with little previous experience or skill. For a more professional look, be sure to work with experts.

Pep Things Up With a Patio Project

Reclaim some of that outdoor space and add value by putting in an updated patio. It’s amazing how much transformation can occur over a weekend with some elbow grease and a few trips to the local home-improvement store. The most important rule in patio planning? Research solid plans for the desired result online or patio building books before heading to the store. Have a store employee from the correct department review the plans and go over the basic principles involved in the project if uncertain about how to get started.

With so many simple ways to spruce up the home, there’s no better time to pick a project. Be sure to work with professionals if you are not confident with your building skills. These are some of the best updates to start with if you need a change and want to add value to your home.
