There are many reasons to start a remodeling project – one of the biggest ones is to increase the value of your home. Whether you just moved in, are thinking of selling, or just caught the Spring bug that urges us to refresh our surroundings, staying focused on projects that will improve your happiness and increase the value of your home is important. HGTV has identified tips for helping you get started. While we are in total agreement with HGTV, we also believe that home improvements are often about the atmosphere and the feel of a home. Don’t know where to begin? It’s always better to get started on that next project – even if that means just stepping foot inside a showroom or home improvement store to find some inspiration. In the Reno area, we would love to have you stop in or schedule a free, in-home consultation for window coverings that will transform your home.
Curb Appeal Counts.
To increase the value of your home, you have to start with the first impression. Now is the time of year to make changes to the outside of your home – you can find time when it’s cooler and the sun is less intense. General cleaning and simple landscaping is a must. You will feel better about yourself and your home with improvements to the outside. This includes window coverings: consistency counts. The look of your home will come together with a polished appearance when you have window coverings that provide consistency from the outside. And when you pull up after a long day, you will fall in love with your home all over again.
When thinking of ways to increase the value of your home, the kitchen should be your top consideration. Changes that you make will improve the look and feel of your kitchen, and the atmosphere of your home will reflect that. The kitchen is where a great deal of your family’s time is spent, and it’s often where habits are formed. The investment you put into your kitchen will be a huge benefit in the long run. You may not have to do much, but even changing out the lighting, buying new hardware and adding a coat of paint are small projects that will update it and make it feel like a whole new space. Window coverings can help bring in the light for a natural glow, creating the right environment for healthy choices. And with the Counterparts Program from Hunter Douglas, you can choose window coverings that offer complementary styles to coordinate your home.
Bathrooms are Substantial.
Just like the kitchen, bathroom upgrades can do a lot to increase the value of your home. An important investment, redoing the bathroom can sometimes feel like a daunting task. Take time to consider whether you need to start over, or if small changes and updates will be the right choice for you. Lots of elements of decor can provide the refreshment you need: changing mirrors, lighting, hardware and paint colors. Maybe the structure and fixtures are in quality shape, but you want to add personality? Think about buying new linens and artwork to add your own appeal. Bathrooms can feel like your own personal sanctuary with the right window coverings. You will be able to transform your bathroom into a space that offers high amounts of natural light with as much privacy as you need, and you will be able to start your day off on the right note every morning.
Lighting Has a Tremendous Effect.
The lighting in a home has such an effect on the atmosphere. To increase the value of your home, consider upgrades to lighting that add to the function and style of the space. Decide whether the room in question needs a dimmer or a switch for additional ambiance. Window coverings play an important role in the atmosphere and lighting of each and every room in your home. Window coverings that filter the light, or pull the natural light in, will transform the look and feel of that room. Window coverings can change the way you interact with a space, increasing your productivity and mood. The style added to a room with window coverings that complement your home’s decor are sure to put a smile on your face every time you enter.
