Home Upgrades that Add Value & Convenience
Everyone can use a little pick-me-up from time to time. Long cold winters, getting locked up into boring routines, a lack of anything new in your life…there’s no end to the list of things that can bring us down.
Well, there’s an equally long list of things that can help perk you up, and simple home upgrades are right up there among the simplest and most valuable.
Here’s a handful we selected to help point you in the right direction.
Upgrade your cabinet hardware. This simple change can dramatically change the look of your kitchen or bathroom. Look for hardware that expresses your unique style, like hand painted porcelain knobs, vintage glass knobs, or sleek and modern metal pulls.
Paint your front door. Make coming home a treat by giving your front door a face-lift. For the price of a good exterior paint, you can instantly boost your home’s curb appeal. While you’re painting the front door, why not upgrade your mailbox and house numbers, too.
Paint or wallpaper an accent wall. Accent walls are a stylish addition to any room. Whether a striking bold pattern or a slightly darker hue of your existing color, an accent wall can give a room a new lease on life.
Install a key-less entry. Eliminate the hassle of fumbling with keys and improve the appearance of your front entry with a smart, key-less lockset.
Add shiplap to a wall. All the rage on home improvement shows, shiplap adds a little rustic charm to an otherwise ordinary space. And, because it can be stained or painted any color you want, it compliments just about any décor style.
Add outdoor lighting. Illuminate walkways, plantings, architectural features, and add another layer of safety with strategically placed accent lighting.
Add crown-molding or a chair rail. This easy-to-install upgrade adds visual interest to any room.
Install a programmable thermostat. Turn your heat (or air conditioning) on according to your schedule and never come home to an uncomfortable house again.
Here at GBT Heating & Air Conditioning, programmable thermostat installation is right up our alley. So is attending to any home heating, air conditioning, or indoor air quality needs you might have. For more information or a free proposal, contact us today.
