Change the Fireplace Mantle

A simple color change could make your entire room look different. In less than 10 minutes of preparation and 10 minutes of actually painting, you can have a totally different look. 


Swap your Door Knobs

Does your home have brass doorknobs from the 1980’s? Do you feel stuck in the ‘70’s with chrome doorknobs? Well, funny how things come back in style but if you’re still not liking those choices, opt for some satin nickel or oil rubbed bronze finishes to update the look of your doors.


Change the Kitchen Backsplash

Tired of that horrible cornucopia backsplash tile design? There are so many options available today including reclaimed wood or designer tiles. Many home improvement stores offer assistance on choices and materials to “do-it-yourself.”


Change the Stair Risers

Do you still have carpet on your stairs? Is it outdated or matted down? Is it soiled and you’re sick of it? Rip it off! Paint or stain the treads with a choice color and the risers to compliment the treads. It will change the look of your home immediately!


Rejuvenate your Flooring

Still got vinyl in your laundry room, kitchen, or bathrooms? Try an update that you can install all by yourself. This one simply locks into place, is self-leveling and has a cork backing that makes it 100% waterproof. Best of all, it's inexpensive and gives a look of hardwood!
