Choose quality, energy-efficient products for your home – whether they're windows, electrical appliances or light fixtures. It's worth the investment in terms of the money and energy you'll be saving in the long run.
Make your home feel like your own by mixing favorite family antiques with new decorative pieces, or adding splashes of color throughout your home.
Enhance your home's curb appeal by trying simple changes like:
- Painting a bold-colored front door.
- Choosing matching metal for your light fixtures, mailbox and house numbers.
- Adding pops of color with planters.
Bring out your home and yard's natural beauty by adding eco-friendly elements and details that complement the surrounding landscape.
When renovating a historical home, research neighborhood or homeowner association guidelines to be sure you're selecting colors and details that are true to your home's history and architecture.
