How Do You Know When It’s Time to Update?

Honestly, I don’t think there’s a single tell-tale sign that helps you know, but more of a combination of thoughts and feelings and passive-aggressive jokes from guests in your home.  I’m sure you all know someone with the dark panneling, shag carpet, and wild-colored cabinets still thriving within their home of at least 30 years, and that’s a great thing. However, at certain points in life an update or two is a refreshing reminder that times have changed!

We’ve seen a lot of neutral trends growing in 2017 like grey or tan walls throughout, white trim, simple yet bright and bold contrasts that can match almost anyone’s style of decor. To update your home can seem a bit like a complete overhaul, but it doesn’t have to.

Start small :

Patch up any old, damaged drywall.
Paint the walls/touch up the trim. A simple once over coat can make a world of difference – imagine what a whole new color would feel like!
Windows – are you getting the same efficiency out of them or is your money headed straight to the breeze?
Old carpet leaves weird smells and can look..well..used. Is tile an option? Carpet trends are changing and the ease of cleaning is priority.

There are tons of options you have when it comes to updating your home and starting small can really help you accomplish a larger task.
