Remodeling & Decorating Ideas

Well, here goes – my first blog. Please bear with me as I figure out what type of thing my readers would like to know more about. For this week’s topic, I would like to touch on remodeling and redecorating ideas.  It’s always good to consult with a Realtor BEFORE making changes to your home, if you are only doing it to make it sell faster, for more money, or just to make it more attractive to buyers. What you might think would be good ideas may not matter to most buyers and what you might not even think of could be very important.  Over the years, though, with HGTV and such, sellers have become the expert at staging their home. That’s a word that we hadn’t even heard of in relation to selling homes ten years ago!  Here are some of my favorite “go to” internet sites:

  1. HOME AND GARDEN TV – (HGTV.COM) you can look for online decorating ideas by room, style or even color, plus full episodes of prior programming.
  2. Pinterest ( I have been playing with this site and creating my own boards (kind of like corkboards to pin stuff to) you can get all kinds of ideas on how to do things, and see what other people have done
  3. Lowes ( A “how–to” library and projects page covers all topics from installing tile floors to home maintenance.
  4. Remodelista ( – check out their “steal this look” feature that provides sources and prices for key elements.

Well – that  should give you enough to look through for a couple of days!  Let me know what sites you like also!
