We’ve all heard that it is the kitchens and the bathrooms that sell a home. For the most part, that is true. However, there are many other factors that play into the ability to sell a house and the value that a shopper will place on it. Whether or not a kitchen remodel is needed varies from home to home. One of the biggest waste of money and effort (IMHO) is when new granite is installed on top of outdated cabinets. Have you heard the phrase, “putting lipstick on a pig?” So, before you run out and start making changes, let’s look at 10 ways to increase your home’s value that makes sense.
Like a lot of you, my kitchen is full of stainless steel appliances. I love the sleek, modern, look that they bring to a space, but I hate the endless supply of fingerprints and smudges that they collect. None of my appliances have the new fingerprint proof finish. I am still living with the old generation of stainless steel, and considering the cost of my appliances, I imagine it will be a long time before I acquire that luxury. Fortunately, these how to clean stainless steel methods have made life with my appliances bearable.
I know that there are a lot of “shower only” people out there, but I personally love my air tub. However, one thing that I don’t love is the potential for mold, mildew and dangerous bacteria to build up in the lines. Also, there is a big gross factor for me, if I feel that a tub isn’t sanitized. If you don’t stay on top of things, a jetted or air tub can get out of hand very quickly. (FYI – I am a super germaphobe). Therefore, I am sharing how to clean and disinfect jetted whirlpool tubs.
2018 is finally here! We now have 365 new opportunities to make something great! I can’t wait to see what wonderful things that I get to share with you this year.
