Whether you’ve been in your home for a while or have just moved in and know that you’ll be there for a while, you may want to make some improvements to ensure that your home reflects your personal style and is both aesthetically pleasing and efficient.
One of the best things you can do to improve your home is add energy-efficient appliances to your home space. A refrigerator, dishwasher or washer and dryer that are certified by EnergyStar helps you to save on electricity bills, and many of these appliances have sleek and modern designs that will fit the rest of your home aesthetic.
Adding eye-catching paint colors to the exterior of your home will increase curb appeal and boost the value of your home should you decide to sell it. If you have a brick or wood sided home that is brown or beige, a red door can serve as the feature piece of your home’s exterior. Blue or purple doors are beautiful when paired with light or dark gray brick. It’s also a good idea to add this same paint color to window sills or porches to add a creative touch to your home.
Adding a garden or other landscaping features to your home make worthwhile home improvements as well. A fragrant garden filled with daisies or lavender that lines the path to your front door, or creative lighting that adds a warm glow to your front or back yard makes a huge difference in your home’s overall look.
