First Impression

If eyes are the windows to the soul…..are front doors the “windows” to your home??? Absolutely! What an opportunity to create and make a powerful statement to those entering your home. The front door can very often be overlooked and sometimes just flat out forgotten, but this is truly the definition of curb appeal and often will set the tone for what is to come inside the home. The proper paint color or stain  is certainly critical, and the selection process is determined by multiple factors such as, house color, shutters, stone front, and even what’s on the inside of the door.  The second factor relates more to the style of the neighborhood, and more specifically to the style of your home. There are many different types of doors and typically it will match the overall style of your home. When replacing or changing a front door, the focus can typically be more on functionality, and fit. Obviously these are top priorities, but with the proper guidance style can also be achieved ensuring a “perfect fit” all the way around.

Top Shelf

Do you have a bookcase? Do you have open shelves? Sick and tired of staring at the same ole’ open cabinets, but not sure what to do with them? Don’t worry all hope is not lost, in fact you most likely already have the necessary materials laying around the house to spruce up those shelves and provide you with a whole new look. I like to compare it to going to the salon. You’ve had the same style for awhile, you’ve gotten used to it, it’s comfortable and it’s easy to maintain. On the other hand, nobody seems to be complimenting your look anymore, the excitement to do your hair daily seems to have faded, and you no longer have a desire to “toss” your hair and show it off to all your friends!

Bookcases are like your hairstyles: They can get comfortable, fade into the background and lose their appeal! Well, how do we get that fresh, eye-popping, want to show it off to all your friends look going again??? You might be surprised at the completely different looks that can be created…..however, just like a new hair style, you could have all the right items, but how you put it all together is what will achieve the “WOWS”.
