Sometimes when you have lived in a property for a while, you start to feel bored with the way it looks and how it works. If you don’t have the budget for a big renovation, you might not feel like you can make meaningful changes. However, when you start making simple changes to your home, you will realize that they can actually completely transform the space.
Old paint makes it difficult for you to appreciate your home and it can create a space that looks old and uncomfortable. But a fresh coat of paint will make the same space feel completely new. You can find a combination of neutral colors that you love with a few highlights to bring brightness to the space. An accent wall in a bright color can create a fun vibe that helps your property feel inviting and fun. Consider the space you are painting and choose finishes that are appropriate for the environment. For example, you want to make sure that any areas that are prone to moisture have a satin finish or at least semi-gloss.
The exterior of your home is just as important as the interior, so you want to use it to make a good impression. By updating your landscaping you can transform your yard into an inviting and beautiful space. And, adding green can make your home look great from the outside. Maintaining landscaping can be difficult, but you can choose less complicated plants that are low maintenance if that’s your preference. There are many low-maintenance options that are some of the most beautiful plants you can have.
Adding new decorations to your home can add an additional layer of style that brings a new feeling to the space. Changing out big things like your furniture can be a good place to start if you feel like they are not as comfortable and useful as you think they should be. But if you aren’t ready for a furniture update, you can simply change out small items like throw pillows and the art you have on your walls. These simple changes will make your home more inviting and fun.
As you make updates to your home, you can start to see how little changes make a big difference. By making calculated choices about how to use your space, you can make your home into a transformed living space. Modern style will help your house to feel more beautiful and more functional.

H&H Home Builders have constructed Energy Star Compliant homes since we burst onto the building landscape in 1995 as ‘North Liberty’s Premier Builder’. Since then, Energy Star Guidelines have evolved into what we consider today as the pinnacle of efficiency and we, as builders of ‘green’ homes, have kept pace with those guidelines and have adapted them into each home that we build. H&H Home Builders will build you what is known today as a ‘green’ home, but what has always been lesser known as a ‘sustainable’ home. Sustainable homes are quality built so that they last not just decades, but are built to maintain value, encouraging pride of ownership for generations to come. An H&H ‘green’ Home uses raw materials in a responsible way, using fewer resources, resulting in the use of less energy.
