 3 Marble Alternatives to Use In Your HomeWhen it comes to designing a luxurious kitchen or bathroom, few materials are as widely beloved as marble. It’s literally been used for centuries thanks to the timeless and elegant appeal that it evokes, yet there are some drawbacks to this surface.

Some homeowners, however, simply don’t have the time for that. If you want the beautiful aesthetic of marble countertops without having to worry about the regular maintenance, here are several alternatives to bring into your home. Calacatt...

If you want to create a tranquil setting outside your home, here are a few tips for a true oasis in your backyard. Attract the Birds If you want to relax to the calls of a songbird, or perhaps lure in a swarm of butterflies, it all starts with choosing the right plants.

Whether you’re going by yourself, with friends, or with your whole family, here are a few ways you can get back into nature without spending a fortune.1.

 To Renovate or Not To Renovate Before You SellWhen thinking about selling, homeowners often feel they need to get their house ready with some remodeling to make it more appealing to buyers. However, with so many buyers competing for available homes right now, renovations may not be as vital as they would be in a more normal market. Here are two things to keep in mind if you’re thinking of selling this season. 1. There aren’t enough homes for sale right now. A normal market has a 6-month supply of houses for sale, but today’s housing inventory sits far below that benchmark. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), there’s only a 1.9-month supply of homes available today. As a result, buyer competition is high and homes are only on the market for about 21 days, during whi...

 Is This the Year to Repaint Your Home There’s nothing like a postcard-fresh paint job on your home to make it look and feel brand new again, but it’s unlikely you’ll need a new coat of paint every year. So how do you know when it’s time to repaint? Let’s walk through some of the biggest signs that it’s time to break out the buckets and brushes.   The Purpose of Paint Although paint is nice to look at, and the color you choose definitely tells a story and lends a mood to the whole neighborhood, paint serves another very important function as a waterproof barrier. For many homes, especially those that are older, there’s very little standing between the siding and the living space. This is why having a good paint really matters. Paint waterproofs that siding, and helps prevent moisture fr...
