Tips on Making Your New Luxury Home Perfect for You

When you find the perfect home, you will probably make some changes in the décor since not everyone has the same tastes in colors and textures. Painting the interior, changing carpets and flooring and updating fixtures such as the showers, sinks, tubs and toilets are all updates many people make when moving into a new house.

Curb Appeal

If the house had a plain front door, upgrade to a door with sidelites. If the door is plain white and another color matches your home, you might change to another color at the same time. Adding a decorative door makes your home look more inviting and adds more value to the property as a whole.

If your home does not have a porch or a decorative entryway, adding one also increases the value of your home and makes it more inviting to your guests. A porch also allows you to decorate for the holidays, gives you a place to put shoes and boots if they are muddy or dripping with snow and ice melt. And, it allows you to do one of the most relaxing activities on the planet: Porch sitting. Whether you sit on the porch with a good book or a good friend for an in-depth discussion, you will find yourself relaxed and less stressed.

It’s the Little Things Inside

If you want to make the interior more luxurious, change the crown molding and the baseboards. You can choose from many designs. The taller the crown molding, the more luxurious it looks. Most baseboards are just flat boards, but you can find them with a beveled cut or other cuts that make them more decorative.

If you plan on replacing the flooring, replace the baseboards at the same time. That way, you won’t have to worry about damaging them when you remove them since you are putting another type there. Painting the baseboards and crown molding before you install them makes the job much easier – if you plan on doing it yourself.

Look at some of the new generation vinyl now available if you are looking for something that looks great, but is easy to maintain. It looks like real tile or wood – depending on what you choose – and it is very easy to keep clean. And, when you are ready for different flooring, it’s easy to remove and replace. Vinyl is also waterproof, so you don’t have to worry if the kids spill something on it. If you install it without gluing it down – as a floating floor – it’s even easier to replace when you decide to change the flooring.

A little paint in the trendiest colors, new flooring, exterior paint, a new front door is sometimes all it takes to make an almost-perfect luxury home into the perfect luxury home.
