The weather has started getting cooler and most outdoor projects are being wrapped up….Its time to start thinking ahead and getting your home ready for the holidays.
There are quite a few projects (big and small) that can be done prior to opening your homes to friends and family this winter.
The easiest and sometimes the most budget friendly is interior painting.
Increases Real Estate Value of Your Home. Painting both interior and exterior walls, trim and other home surfaces will increase the overall real estate value of your home. This helps in valuation of your assets, and can help with resale.
Enhances Curb Appeal. Painting exterior walls, trim and other surfaces of your home will increase curb appeal.
Promotes Healthy Indoor Air Quality. Painting interior walls, trim and other surfaces with quality, low VOC and zero-VOC paints and finishes can reduce odors and fumes, and promote healthy, indoor air quality for you and your family.
Keeps Dust, Dirt to a Minimum. Particularly in homes with plaster walls, keeping your interior walls, trim and other surfaces painted can keep dust and dirt at bay. Paint keeps plaster in check, and dust to a minimum. For old homes or tough interior surfaces, make sure you use high quality paint, like Benjamin Moore or Kelly Moore.
Hides Permanent Marks, Stains. Painting both interior and exterior walls, trim and other home surfaces will help the homeowner cover permanent marks or stains that have proven difficult to remove.
Protects Interior Surfaces. Painting both interior and exterior walls, trim and other home surfaces will help these areas hold up under normal wear and tear, and protect walls from damaging effects of water.
The Most Inexpensive Remodel. Does your home need a new look? In this economy, homeowners are finding out that there’s nothing quite like painting to refresh your home and living environment, at a fraction of the cost of a remodel. A gallon of paint will run $15 to $50 per gallon. For quality paint, expect to pay more.
The inclement weather is also the perfect time to rethink your kitchen and bathroom spaces.
Functionality. The kitchen/bath area might simply be falling apart. Cracked tiles, peeling countertops, broken or missing cabinet doors and outdated appliances don’t inspire gourmet cooking or family gatherings. The deteriorated kitchen has simply outlived its usefulness and needs a remodel.
Value. Homeowners often remodel their kitchens to increase the value or marketability of a property. A remodeled and attractive kitchen will appeal to prospective home buyers more than a boring and outdated one. The homeowner may or may not recoup the investment of the remodel; this will depend on a variety of factors, such as the degree of the remodel and current market prices.
Energy Savings. Energy savings might be the prime motivation for a kitchen remodel. Adding skylights brings in more sunshine, reducing the need for artificial light. Energy-efficient appliances and solar water heaters cut the utility bill and place less stress on the environment.
Lifestyle. The kitchen can be pristine yet outdated. If the kitchen says 1950s, but you want to live in the here and now, it is time to transform your retro kitchen environment into a room for the 21st century.
