You want to live in a place that is beautiful…a place you can be proud of. Use our tips to help increase the value of your home with appealing aesthetics!
Thinking of a remodeling project to freshen up your Kansas City area home? Have you recently moved into a new place and you’re not quite sure where to start? Don’t let it overwhelm you. Sometimes, you just need to get started. Start small, and when you love the results, you can continue the progress on the rest of your home. When deciding on a project, it’s important to understand the areas of your home where you will not only experience beauty and lifestyle improvements, but also allow you to increase the value of your home. At One Stop Decorating, we love starting on this journey with our clients. Here are a few tips to inspire small starts, or big ones, to increase the value of your home!
Enjoy the Outdoors!
You hear this all the time: curb appeal. First impressions are everything, and your home is no exception. The beauty of your home starts with the condition of the outside. When you come home to the beauty of power washed walkways, sidewalks and siding or brick, you will feel good about yourself and the home you live in. Start thinking about upgrading the landscaping in the next couple months. The addition of plants, trees and shrubs, surrounded by the rich color and texture of mulch will offer a fresh look and increase the value of your home.

Gather in the Kitchen.
Families tend to gather together for meals and snacks, and they should. Research has shown that families that share meals together are healthier overall. Our tip is to make your kitchen a priority when it comes to upgrades. This doesn’t mean that you have to start over. Simple changes – changing the hardware or adding a fresh coat of paint – can be a huge step as you increase the value of your home. Larger projects, such as changing countertops, painting cabinets, or adding new appliances, will certainly increase the value of your home.
Our One Stop Decorating Extra…Many people forget about window coverings for the kitchen. Ambient lighting – especially in the room where your family is going to be spending time together – is important. Create a positive environment with shades that you can adjust for just the right light control!
Better Your Bathroom.
When it comes to bathrooms, most of the upgrades you do will increase the value of your home. Like your kitchen, even minor changes, such as a new mirror, light fixture or showerhead, will be a good start. Changes to decor, like a new shower curtain, wall art or new linens, will go a long way to make you feel refreshed. Because your bathroom is where you spend time getting yourself ready for the day, you want a space that you can feel good about.
Our One Stop Decorating Extra…Two of your most important bathroom features, privacy and light control, are achieved easily with window coverings. The natural light will work for you, while the privacy will make you feel comfortable.
Illuminate Your Home.
It’s all about the light when it comes to improving your home. Adding new light fixtures, or chandeliers, can add dramatic effect in your home and will increase the value of your home. With designer style and dimming features, new light in your home will create an environment that showcases the beauty of your home while adding function.
Our One Stop Decorating Extra…Window coverings can illuminate your home in ways you never imagined, creating beautiful atmosphere while providing your home with the benefits of privacy, UV protection and energy efficiency. If you haven’t experienced the beauty and function of window coverings, it’s time.
