When you picture your dream home, you may think of an eco-friendly haven in the woods with ample natural sunlight, or an urban flat that’s always up for entertaining. But if you’re a book-lover, your coveted dream home feature is most likely a personal library—a fantastical or cultural haven where you can bury yourself in knowledge and stories. But beautiful libraries… Read more
It seemed fine when you took the tour. But now, filled with the TV, the sofa, the dining table, and your sometimes-squabbling family, your new home feels less roomy than it did on the walk through—and privacy feels very hard to come by.

For most of us, jobs don’t quit at five. Meanwhile, the second shift is just beginning—making dinner for the family, helping with homework, walking the dog, and whisking everyone off to bed—so it’s no wonder we get caught in cursory cleaning routines that just barely pass muster.

Home Decor

Those lucky enough to own their home have the freedom to put nails in walls, paint, replace carpets with hardwood flooring, or tile without having to worry about violating a lease agreement or putting money into a project with no chance for a return on the investment. Like the saying goes, “Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.”

There are many reasons why a home remodel project is a great idea. If the home is a new purchase, remodeling means putting a personal touch on what had been someone else’s style choices. Remodeling a home is an opportunity to update the look after what may have been years of evolving trends and changes in individual decor preferences. Additionally, remodeling is an opportunity for growth and to modernize a home, which could not only increase resale value, but also make it safer and perhaps improve energy efficiency to reduce utility expenses. An update to things like appliances, fixtures, lighting, wiring, plumbing, or even a fresh paint color with some new decor can increase the value of a home — sometimes exponentially — and improve not just the quality of the home and property, but also the quality of life.
