5 Tips that Will Totally Transform Your Home

5 Tips that Will Totally Transform Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    You want your home to represent you, to be functional, yet beautiful at the same time.

    It’s definitely a challenge to get all of these things to work together, but there are definitely some things that you can do, both on the inside and outside of your home.

-------------------------------------

Take a look at our tips to transform your home into a paradise.

Plant the Right Type of Grass

The outside of your home makes a huge impression, and your grass is a key to that. One of the keys to having an amazing lawn is to plant the correct type of grass for your geographic location. Planting a grass that does not thrive in your area means you will spend most of your time fighting for a healthy lawn.

If you live in an area where colder temperatures are normal, planting a cool season lawn will allow you to have a green, healthy lawn most of the year. Cool season grasses love low temperatures and easily burn and die in hot climes. Plants like Kentucky bluegrass, Rye and Fescue are great for those living in northern climates.

If you live in an area where hot, humid temperatures are par for the course, you will want to plant grass that thrives in warm weather. These types of grasses love hot weather. Instead of turning brown and dying in the burning sun, they soak up the ultraviolet rays and stay lush and green. Warm season grasses are Bermuda, Zoysia, and St. Augustine. They do very well in southern areas.

Give Up on Grass in the Shade

There are some areas of your property where growing grass is simply out of the question. Grass needs a certain amount of sunlight no matter how shade resistant it is. If you have areas of your yard with trees that cast constant shade, you can save yourself hours of frustration by recognizing you can never get a lawn to grow properly there.

These areas are a great place to have a shade garden. There are several beautiful plants that thrive in deep shade and will add greenery and interest to your turf. This makes a calming area to relax in the shade and enjoy a good book or meditate. You can create a themed garden in this area or just find some shade plants that you love.

Consider Your Floors

Moving indoors, your floors should be an area of focus. There are so many different flooring options available that you can create almost any feel. You can also vary the type of flooring by the purpose of the room and what you want things to look like.

For instance, polished concrete has an amazing polished finish that gives you a classy look and is incredibly easy to clean and hard to damage.

You can also use hardwood, stone, carpet, and linoleum to create a different feeling for each room, so carefully consider the use and amount of traffic each room will have when choosing the type of flooring you want to use.

Keep it Organized

Even if you have all the right pieces for your home, if you don’t keep it organized, it isn’t going to look good. Make sure that everything in your home has a place that it belongs, and make it a habit to put everything in its space.

You can use inventive storage methods, including multi-use furniture and display cabinets, or you can use more traditional closets and cupboards. It may take a little while to get in the habit of cleaning everything up, but if you take 5 minutes every day to straighten things, it will make a world of difference.

Make a Statement

Everyone has hobbies and interests that they love, and you shouldn’t be afraid to make your home reflect yours. Whether you develop a decorating theme around your passions or you just use hints, make sure that you incorporate your personal touch into the decorations. You can use artwork, accessories, furniture layouts, and color schemes to reflect your interests.

For more public spaces, such as the living room and kitchen, some fun quotes, or interesting artwork can create a great conversation piece. In more personal areas, such as bedrooms and offices, you can go a little more bold and truly let your passions take over.

No matter what you do to make your home the best version of itself, make sure that you are making changes that improve the value of your home at the same time. There is no point in renovating without helping your property values.
