home-1185860_1280

When one buys a house or a home it is not the end of the world. In fact it is just dthe beginning. For the man who says when he enters his home that it should not like a hotel, but for the woman it gives her just the right ideas to innovate. No wonder she is called the home maker. Just as a dress needs a snip here and a cut there for the lady of the house, here is where it all begins. So let us look at the multiple choices that the lady of the house has.

Before one thinks of improvement of the house think which project will increase your house worth and which can harm it. For example is it worth digging up the backyard to put up a swimming pool or to make the old dreary kitchen shine with gleaming kitchen tops. Somebody even suggested me speakers for every room. The reason given was that music takes the blues away. Now that is taking things too far. So let us begin with heart of every home and that is the kitchen. The lady of the house spends most of the time here or in front of the TV. Taking the former seriously let’s begin by the stone or granite top which will improve te aesthetic look of the space. One can put shiny knobs for the cabinet or a fxlashy faucet for the sink.

Knocking down half the wall to connect the kitchen to the dining room is not abad idea as it makes the kitchen look bigger and spacious. Like they say that you would like to know what the guests are saying while you are doing the cooking. Also one can keep an eye on the kids while they are playing.

The wash room is considered the man’s freedom spot so why not make it a little more comfortable. A toilet that looks cracked and dirty is a turn off for sure. Lighting is a value booster and it should be bright and make one cheerful. After all this is the place from where your day begins. If one has a bath tub then just reglazes it so that it looks new as ever rather than buying a new one. Lastly fix all the leakifng faucets. It is the most irritating sound at mid night.

In the last couple of years a lot has been said about green housing. It is very important to make the house energy efficient so that the house keeps the warmth in during the winter months and out during the warmer months. One can begin in a small way by putting up fans in every room or increasing the windows., so will always be getting fresh air throughout the day.

If one has a small garden it is alwaysgood to install a sprinkler system that automatically turns on and off. This allows the garden to be well maintained without the extra effort put in. It also allows the garden to look fresh and well watered at any part of the day.
