20 Home Enhancers Under $20

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

Here are 20 things that will brighten, refresh and generally improve the look and feel of your home and all for a price that is reasonable for anyone!

  1. Towels. It’s a great way to add color to your bathroom or kitchen.
  2. Mats. Whether it is your doormat, bathmat or kitchen mat, they all get worn over time.
  3. Rugs. A couple of nice throw rugs can add color in needed areas.
  4. Shower Curtains. If you have a small bathroom, go with a light solid color.
  5. Pillows. Need a refresher to your couch?  A colorful pillow can do the trick.
  6. Candles.  If I had to pick one thing that is always a winner, it would be this. It works in any décor, takes out odor and can cost so little!
  7. Tablecloths. It can cover up a table in need or replacement, restaining or repainting.
  8. Plants. Any variety can give life to any empty spot in your house.
  9. Bins.  They can get everything from toys to clothes under control.
  10. Blankets. It’s the best option when you need to to cover up the stain, the tear or the worn spot on chairs, beds and couches.

5 Great Space Creators

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

Here are my top 5 great things to do to create better space in a room for your next showing:

  1. Furniture. Relocate or remove it if it is preventing a prospective buyer from seeing the fireplace or any other great feature in your home.
  2. Cabinets and Shelving. I just redid my laundry room and in the process took down cabinets and shelving that I never used. The space looks wonderfully cleaner and bigger!
  3. Bins, Baskets or Boxes. Any of these help with organizing your children’s toys or anything else that can take over a room.
  4. Rugs. They can help define a space and add good color to a room – all at the same time.
  5. Lights. Go bright and the space seems bigger. Having a dimly lit room and the same space seems smaller. Have no lights working and a buyer won’t even walk in the room!
