Convert a Bland Wall Into Stunning Design Feature.

Designed by OutboundEngine, Inc

Just because a new home comes with fresh white walls doesn’t mean they have to stay that way. A statement wall can pull a design together, add personality, and make furniture and accessories pop. Creating an eye-catching feature can be simple, starting with a wall to highlight. 

Whether you choose to make a statement with a bold, bright wall color or an exotic, textured wallpaper, the key is to balance it with other design elements in the room.

Choose a Focal Point – Decide what aspect of the room you would like to draw attention to fireplace, large furniture pieces and artwork are popular focal points. If your room doesn’t lend itself to having a statement wall, highlight existing features like a small office nook or an inset wall.

Pick a Bold Color or Pattern – Choose a bright color, interesting texture or striking pattern for your statement wall. Pick up a color from the furniture or textiles already in the room or go with a contrasting color to stand out more.

Place Furniture for Maximum Impact – Arrange pieces of furniture to draw attention to your statement wall. For example, two light-covered occasional chairs on opposite sides of a darkly painted wall attract the eye and create a focal point, particularly when they’re coupled with pops of color in pillows, lamps and art.

Add Accents – Finish off a room’s design by carefully placing accessories that highlight your statement wall. This is the perfect opportunity to integrate your personality into your home. Show off your favorite artwork, family heirlooms or travel keepsakes.

Fixer-upper or Ready-Home?

Designed and Delivered by OutboundEngine, Inc.

Shows like HGTVs “Fixer Upper” have popularized the idea of buying and renovating the worst house on the best block. Homes that need major remodeling, however, aren’t for everyone. Sometimes a move-in ready house is a better option. Whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned investor, it’s important to understand the pros and cons of each.

Pros of Fixer-Uppers 

  • Lower price – Homes that require some updating tend to be priced lower, and many renovations can quickly add value to your home.
  • Creative control – When you’re the one in charge of updating your home, you can customize it however you choose.

Cons of Fixer- Uppers 

  • Delayed move-in – The planning and work involved to fix up can significantly delay your move-in date.
  • Unexpected cost – No matter how well you plan, major renovations are always subject to unforeseen expenses.

Pros of Move-In Ready

  • Quick move in – Can’t wait to begin nesting? With a finished home, you can start moving in as soon as you get your keys.
  • Energy-efficient technology – New and renovated homes are often outfitted with the latest energy-efficient options when it comes to kitchen appliances and heating and cooling systems which can save you move over time.

Cons of Move- In ready

  • More expensive – To recoup the cost of updating, seller often price move – ready homes much higher. These homes also don’t allow for easy customization.
  • Questionable quality – When you’re not there to oversee the update process, you’re unable to ensure that high-quality work and materials are used for your home.

Still not sure which approach is right for you? Take this quiz to help you decide if you’re ready for a fixer upper.

Create a Home Maintenance Checklist 

call christina

Designed and delivered by Outbound Engine

Your vehicle routine maintenance to run smoothly, and the same goes for your house. Without service reminders, however, it can be easy to forget to tend to all systems that keep your house fully functioning. Fortunately, you can create a simple annual maintenance checklist to properly care for your home and prevent potential issues from becoming major problems.

Start by making a list each task you’ll need to complete over the coming year. Make sure your yearly home inspection includes all major system (HVAC, electrical and plumbing), the interior and exterior of your home, water and septic tanks, doors and windows, and the attic or baseball if applicable.

When that’s done, organize the list according to how often each item needs to be checked or maintained and set reminders accordingly. Your home maintenance checklist might start to look similar to this:

Monthly 

  • Test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Change air filters in the heating and air conditioning system.
  • Clean range hood filters to avoid possible grease fires.
  • Trim back any shrubbery or plant around the outdoor HVAC unit at least 18 inches.

Quarterly 

  • Check and wipe down sliding doors and window tracks.
  • Replace batteries in smoke detectors.
  • Test garage door and grease tracks as needed.

Semiannually 

  • Clear gutters of spring and fall foliage.
  • Power wash windows and siding.
  • Schedule seasonal service of the HVAC system before summer and winter.

Annually 

  • Inspect and insulate pipes to protect them from freezing.
  • Trim trees and shrubs away from the home’s exterior.
  • Touch up exterior paint and check for wood rot or water damage.
  • Check grouting in kitchen and bathroom and repair if necessary.

Refresh your Interior with the Right Paint

Looking for a quick way to rejuvenate your living space? Before you go changing layouts or knocking down wall, try giving your interior a fresh coat of paint. This fairly simple task can dramatically alter the look and feel of your home. 

Changing interior paint is an easy do-it-yourself project that most can tackle in a weekend or two. Before you get the rollers out and start painting, here are some basics about the interior paint finishes available.

Flat or Matte – Hide imperfections with flat paints, which absorb light and make the colors seem darker. The downside? This type of paint is the least stain resistant, so reserve it for low-traffic areas and ceilings.v4l-125301.jpg

Eggshell – Not as dull as flat paint but less shiny than semi-gloss, this low-sheen option works well in living rooms and bedrooms. Be aware that the shine can accentuate wall imperfections, it’s best on smooth, well-prepared surfaces.

Satin – This easy -to-clean finish is often used on windows, doors and trim. It’s soft sheen sets it apart from walls painted in eggshell or flat finishes. Though it is highly durable, satin paint has less protection than shiner options.

Semi-Gloss – Designed to stand up to stains, semi-gloss paints are the easiest to clean, making them ideal choices for kitchen and children’s rooms. Semi-gloss sheen also stands up to moisture, so consider this selection when repainting a bathroom.

Low VOC – The name says it all. This type of paint contains fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which release toxic gases. Opt for low-VOC paint if you want to go green in your home and deal with less paint fumes.

Staging Tips That Help Homes Sell Quickly

The numbers don’t lie; often well – staged homes can see faster sales and higher offer than their cluttered counterparts. The keys is getting an early start on the process. By beginning the monuments task of clearing the clutter and doing a pre-pack now, you can reduce the stress of preparing for showings and make it easier to move when your home sells.

Try these five staging and organizing tips to help you reach a faster sale.

 

Purge From Top to Bottom – Do a proper sort and purge, getting rid of outdated clothing, duplicate items and rarely used gadgets. To keep this task from turning into a source of serious frustration, tackle one room (or even one drawer) at a time.

Pack Up Everything but the Essentials – Start pre-packing your home, storing non-essentials or out-of-season gear in the garage or off-site. The idea is to give potential buyers a sense of space, which can’t be done if your home is overloaded with clutter.

Fix Glaring Problems – Remove out-of-style wallpaper, replace broken light fixtures, update cabinet and drawer pulls, and refresh dated window treatments. Simple fixes like these can make your home stand out from the competition.

Depersonalize – Remove family pictures and personal collections, and replace them with neutral artwork and simple accessories. The idea is to give potential buyers a neutral canvas so they can image their belongings in your home.

Go for Polished – Research the latest design trends and stage your home to match. Professional stagers recommend tailoring the design style to your target demographic. For example, if you’re in a family neighborhood, style the bedrooms for children, even in none live in your home.
