The Upgrades And Luxury Items For Your Home

by Marty Piatkowski 08/18/2019

When you settle in your home and time passes, you may not notice your surroundings in detail anymore like you did when you first purchased your house. Alternatively, you may think to yourself, "This place could use an update or some pizzazz." There are many things that help reinvent a space or even the entire house on your own. The best part about these ideas is you can complete each of the following on a budget and over your timeline. That way, you can do your research and wait for sales to get the items to add that bit of glamour or elegance. 

Details Win the Day

Beautiful tiles in the kitchen will grab the spotlight when you walk into the space. A backsplash with a punch of fun color or an elegant finish that adds glamour is a simple change that is visually creative. The trim work is not an exciting thing to shop for but, can create a rich luxury feeling throughout a home. Your handrails and railing can look like every other home or, you can invest in upgrading to get a wow factor. Consider metal spindles instead of plain wood ones. Mixing together dark wood with metals or light woods can enhance a stairway. Updating the window blinds to the type without drawstrings and a remote for easy adjustment is a bonus.

The Little Extras that Bring the WOW!

Beautiful lighting that reflects your style can enhance whatever room it illuminates. Try a small chandelier in the half bath. Or a sleek modern designed light fixture in the family eating area above the kitchen table. Remember you can easily update outside lighting too. Outdoor lighting located near your garage door is part of the curb appeal and first expressions of your property. A unique item to include in an upgrade is a standalone ice maker that makes the small easy-to-crunch bits of ice. If you drink or collect wine, an inset wine rack near the kitchen complete with back-lighting can add drama. In the bathrooms, you can install a towel warmer to keep you warm after your shower or bath. Installing a shower head system with many different options such as rainfall, waterfall, or body jets can feel like a four-star hotel experience. Let your imagination run and make your favorite place to hang out your home.

Contact your local agent for the open houses in your area to visit this week to gather upgrade ideas.

We treat people by following the Golden Rule. 

Sellers in the Palm Bay area have enough to worry about in readying their home for market and planning their move to a new home. We take over a huge number of tasks and details to make sure that your real estate property is properly evaluated, priced, marketed, negotiated and carried to closing.

Making the American Dream come true for buyers... We're not just experienced real estate professionals in the Palm Bay area real estate market, we're home buyers too. It takes more than a trained real estate agent to understand the needs and concerns of buyer clients. It takes someone who has been there, someone who has the same concerns when they’re home shopping.

We don’t want to minimize the technical aspects of the home buying process though. Every year it becomes more complex. Between government legislation, environmental laws, mortgage documentation requirements and the legal aspects of a home purchase, the home buyer must be on top of all aspects of the process, or be helped by a professional. Your Mr Palm Bay Realty professionals are here to assist buyers in the Palm Bay area real estate markets, and we're really good at our job!
