2.) Enter in style.
What’s the first thing someone sees when they visit your home? The answer is the entry way! Update the doorbell, the mailbox, maybe even spring for a brand new door. Perfect World Landscaping can help you with a simple and low maintenance front yard design. A little green never hurt anything!
3.) Revamp the cabinets.
It can be tempting to pull outdated or less than perfect kitchen cabinets out and start from scratch, but unless you have the budget to accommodate that extensive of a project, consider just updating the face of what is already there. Sand them down, refinished them or paint them a fun color. There are so many creative options! Looking for even more of an upgrade? Replace all handles and knobs. Maybe remove a few of the cabinet doors to create more accessible shelving.
4.) Paint, paint, paint.
A fresh coat of paint can make everything feel – well – fresh. Accent walls can be a great way to open up a space and make it look bigger, or to warm an area and make it feel more inviting.
