In hopes of seeing their property value appreciate to new levels, homeowners often look for projects they can complete themselves with the assistance of home improvement financing. While a number of modifications which boost resale prices deal with major structural changes, a number of updates can be done at economical rates and significantly heighten a house's elegance.
Incorporating antique items
?Classic home furnishings like tin or copper ceiling tiles can add a desireable aesthetic to a room, or can be manipulated to better suit the layout. Using a different color of paint to darken or brighten antique items can find them a new use or an improved look in another space.
Painting patterned walls
A number of fashionable pattern stencils are available at home supply stores, and can greatly enhance the sophisticated feel a room possesses. Using one pattern per room, but choosing multiple complementary colors can transform a space over the course of an afternoon.
Adding moulding above, below
Crown and baseboard moulding is available for low prices, can be easily installed by homeowners and may give a room a substantially refined appearance. While white trim gives the space a classic look, different colors and designs may lend to the desired ambiance.
