Swap Out Door Handles

Have you had the same door handles for a long time? It’s a simple thing, but changing your door handles can give your room new life. It’s easy to do yourself and won’t take long. Alternatively, you can opt-in for changing interior space by adding more glass doors to let the sun go in, something that modern Crittal doors offer.

Create a Chalkboard Wall 

Define a section of a wall or door for a chalkboard. You could add it to your command center for family messages, to your kitchen for meal planning, or in your kid’s play area. 


Another cost that can easily break the bank is replacing major appliances. Consider a First American Home Warranty is to ease the financial burden when one goes out. A home warranty will cover the costs of repairs and/or replacements that your homeowners insurance usually won’t.
