Long Weekend To Do List

With summer coming to end and most of busy with work, and kids and back in school Labor Day can be the perfect time to tackle those To Do list tasks. With summer leaving we can expect cold weather to follow. Now is a good time to get some winter prep started. Here is a short list to help get things going.

Bathroom update. The bathroom is the perfect place to do a remodel that doesn't have to cost a lot or take a long time. A fresh coat of paint, some new rugs, a nice shower curtain and some cool space organizers and you're set.

Clean out the garage, closets and junk drawer. We all know those areas are the where all the junk ends up. Clearing out the junk can be the best place to start any to do list.

Yard winter prep. Getting your yard ready for winter is very important to ensure your yard stays healthy all year long. Look online if you don't know what to do to prep your type of trees or plants.

Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to rest and enjoy the Labor Day weekend. Call us if you need a bin.

Top remodel for 2018

Here is a list of the top 4 things homeowners are doing to remodel their homes this year.

Smart home systems:  You can control your home with the push of a button on your phone. Set the temperature, control lights, Unlock and lock doors and monitor security systems. The benefits of a smart home are endless and allow you to stay connected and in control with no effort.

Rooftop patios:  Many people are starting to utilize the space on their roofs and tops of houses. Apartment buildings have been using their rooftops for many years but now residential homes are starting to see the benefits as well.

All white: Seems like a nightmare to me to have a house that is wall to white, furniture, walls, accessories etc. But this all white trend is taking off and more and more interior decorators are utilizing all hues of white to create gorgeous spaces. I will admit it looks very pretty and clean, however, parents with small children or black dogs might be hesitant to try this trend.

Open shelving:  This trend is one I love! Having open shelves in the kitchen can really be lovely. The only caveat is that you may become obsessed with keeping things neat and tidy. No more chipped dishes or old ugly looking spice jars.
