Cottages- Decks and Outdoor space is key says Darlene James, Broker

1) Hang Your Curtains Differently

When you hand your curtains closer to the ceiling it will give the illusion of bigger windows and taller room!

2) Paint your Vinyl Flooring!

Don’t have money to replace your flooring? Pick a colour, add a pattern/stencil and you will have a quick fix to ugly flooring!

3) Half-painted walls give the illusion of a taller ceiling.

If you are thinking about giving your room a fresh coat of paint, take a look at these walls! Not only do they make the room look bigger but it’s a great way to make a statement!

4) Add some curb appeal!

A refreshed front door color and a few plants can do wonders for your home's welcoming abilities (and impress the guests). Get some new hardware (or paint the old ones), and add a welcome mat and potted plants near the entrance. Changing out old exterior fixtures can add a fresh new look to your entry!

5) Add Molding

Adding molding to the tops of cupboards, doors, baseboards or ceilings. A little bit of molding goes a long way and can change the way you (or a potential buyer) looks at your space!

6) DIY Tile Backsplash

Its easier than you think and there are lots of different ways to add backsplash. You can add tile or old barn boards! 

7) Paint your kitchen cabinets

The easiest way to give your kitchen a quick face lift is with a coat of paint. A new colour can brighten up the entire room and give your kitchen that breath of fresh air it needs!

8) Stairs - Paint or Add a Runner

It can feel like a big project, but the effect it can have on your room is amazing! 

9) Closet Transformation!

Adding hooks and additional storage to an entry way or hallway closet keeps everything neat and will make it easier to hang this up and find them when you need them!

10) Add Storage!

There are lots of simple ways to add storage without going above and beyond your budget. Adding a couple shelves above your toilet, baskets in the entry way or even a shelf above your curtain rods can add enough space to store those extra odds and end and still make your home feel cozy and welcoming!
