7 Ways Love Your Ways Home Again

By Korth Painting | Home Maintenance

A home is a huge investment for many people, so why not make it the home you’ve always wanted…





Finish/Refurbish the Basement
Many basements are plain, empty and unused spaces that rarely see any visitors. Why let all that space go to waste? Create an entertainment area that will “wow” your guests! Adding a fabulous bar area, seating and beautiful finishes will add character and value to your home.


Put In a Deck
There’s nothing like relaxing on a deck in the summertime with a cool drink in your hand. If you don’t already have one, build one! Don’t love the one you have, let us help you.

Paint, Paint, Paint
Don’t be afraid of paint. It is one of the easiest and inexpensive things to do to dramatically change the look of your home. Here are some tips: If you are not sure about your color sense, bring in a professional color specialist to help. Also, think classic and neutral. If your painting skills are below par, hire Korth & Shannahan. In the end, it evens out because nothing is worse then a bad paint job. So fight your fear of commitment, and splash a little color on those walls!

guestRenovate the Attic
Why not turn it into a bedroom suite? Add as many windows as possible for that precious natural light. Recessed windows, hardwood flooring, built-ins and custom seating are also great ways to add value.

If you get creative and think about some small changes you can make in your kitchen, you won’t have to spend a ton of money. Take down the wallpaper and paint it a neutral color, for example. Hate the cabinets,why not get a whole new look with paint & hardware.  Throw in new light fixtures and you’ve got a great-looking, updated space.

Make Minor Bathroom Changes
Minor changes can be advantageous.  If you have old tile or a dated tub, sink and toilet, consider replacing those items. If you keep the same layout there’s not a lot of expense that has to go into it. Updating paint, light fixtures, linens and accessories are easy ways to breathe new life into the space.

Your garage is a great storage area but does everything have a place? Hang some pegboards for storage, install shelving, go vertical by hanging hooks to get stuff up off the floor.
