In a down economy, sometimes you are faced with the reality of staying put in your current home, like it or not. Consider updating your look to satisfy the need for a change and to give yourself an edge when the market turns.
-Replace old, worn carpet with new carpet or consider upgrading to hardwoods.
-Replace doors and windows with more current styles. This is also a good time to update or repaint shutters or add new ones all together.
-Simple bath updates such as new fixtures or tile floors will be an instant upgrade.
-Landscaping makes a big difference in your home’s curb appeal. Go for something different with large planters filled with blooming flowers.
-Give your windows a makeover indoors as well with simple valences or panels. Adding window treatments can really finish off the look of a room.
-Consider replacing your mailbox with a newer style.
