Today people are looking for ways to improve their homes for better living and more enjoyment. Investing a little time and money will go a long way to transform your home into the pride of the neighborhood.

Curb Appeal – Let’s begin outside. Mow the grass, pull the weeds, edge the lawns and give the bedding areas the attention and maintenance they deserve. Liven up the planting areas with perennials for substance, and then go for color with annuals. Select a color scheme such as reds and yellows then use it throughout the bedding areas for a well-planned professional appearance.

Your Home’s Exterior – Addressing your home’s landscaping is the first step to improving curb appeal. Next you have to pay attention to the physical structure of your home. You can easily make over your home in a few days time by replacing windows, painting, adding new siding, or replacing an old roof. On top of transforming your home, these improvements will increase the value of your home and can greatly improve your home’s energy efficiency. This translates into lower heating bills in the winter and lower cooling costs in the summer. Combine these savings with tax credits and rebates and these improvements will pay for themselves several times over while you experience the pleasure and pride of owning a beautiful home. If you’re in Lancaster County, PA, feel contact us with any tax credit questions.

Clean Up Your Entry – Analyze your walkway and repair wobbly cobblestones or bricks. If the sidewalk is cracked get it repaired or replaced. Next place to turn is your porch. Erase clutter by removing excess plants, kids toys or old knickknacks. If you’re unsure, remove it. The best bet is to get back to a clean slate with simply a welcome mat and a chair or two. If you’ve got additional room, a nicely placed plant will make the area look inviting and create an ideal area for after-dinner coffee or a glass of wine.

Your Main Entry – One of the most important areas of your home is the main entry. It can set the mood for the homes occupants and visitors. Make your entry room feel comfortable by opening it up and making it feel as big as possible. The first step to this is with the right paint color. Select colors that give the illusion of space and light and even small entry rooms magically seem to double in size. Eliminate clutter, excess furniture, and all unnecessary items from your entry room. Most homes have too much furniture and too many objects occupying valuable space and making living space cramped.

Your Kitchen… Is For Living – Today the kitchen is the most popular room in the home. You can’t truly have a dream home without investing properly in your kitchen. Outdated appliances, cabinets, flooring, countertops, and layout all contribute to an overall feeling that the entire home is outdated. Take stock of your kitchen and identify which of these items need attention. Your kitchen can make or break your homes style so make sure to use a professional, in the end it will make all the difference in the world.

Your Bathroom is Your Sanctuary – This is also a room where the touch of a professional is important and like your kitchen, outdated materials, color, and layout can make your bathroom extremely uncomfortable and can severely decrease the overall enjoyment of your home.

Sometimes quick fixes are all you need. Fresh paint, new tile, updated shower or bathtub, new fixtures, etc. When you find that you have more than one of these items it’s time to consider a complete remodel. Today bathroom remodeling is a lot more cost effective than ever before and you’ll be amazed at how an updated bathroom will improve your every day disposition as well as the value of your home.

Exterior landscape is huge when it comes to remodeling and especially selling a home. Oftentimes people ask us at TreeBien Tree Care to remove stumps and trees to clean natural areas and their yards. Trees, while beautiful, if not properly maintained can cause potential hazards in a yard, and they can also be an eye sore dependent upon the type of tree.

This is definitely a great article. There are a number of things that add value to a home. As you mentioned in the Clean Up Your Entry section, making sure that your walkways, sidewalks and driveways are in a great shape is very important. At local concrete experts, we work on a lot of sidewalks, walkways and driveways for our customers and we are told every time that the homes sell fast after these improvements.

Great post full of useful tips! My site is fairly new and I am also having a hard time getting my readers to leave comments. Analytics shows they are coming to the site but I have a feeling “nobody wants to be first”.

Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
