Ferns, budget bathrooms & home wish list: Around the home tips from First Weber

The Power of Greenery

Cleaning and preparing your homes for showing is very important. We realize it can be difficult to keep a home in show-ready condition, but it is an effort you must keep up.  In addition to clean and tidy, your home should be welcoming.  You may have heard of the baking cookies or bread smells, burning a candle or putting out fresh flowers.  Those all work and do make a home feel welcoming.  Another thing to consider is greenery and plants.  Well placed and well cared for plants can add a lot to a room.  Take a look at these gorgeous pictures of ferns in the home and see if you get any ideas.


Bathrooms on a budget

Little things can make a big difference. When looking into getting your home for sale, fresh paint is always a good bet.  See how some of the paint choices in this Houzz post make a big statement.  Also, you can create an updated look with simple things such as a new mirror, light fixture, faucet and draw pulls.  You can create a new look without a total makeover. These ideas may be useful to you when preparing your home for sale.  The same concept can be applied to kitchens, too.

Dream home wish list

This is an interesting article on what people wish they had in a home if they were designing one. “Most wanteds” include a covered outdoor room or screened area, a secret passage, motorized shades, a charging station and more. Read the article and let us know what you think?  Houzz always offers wonderful pictures.
