Painting is the most convenient and money saving upgrade project you can do to your home. With hundreds of colors and shades your choices are endless. Create a space of visual appeal, comfort and value. Stick to shades that bring out your personality to include a theme. Tranquility, fun and energy are some of my favorites.
Get some feedback from family members to include them in the process. Why break the bank trying to improve your home when this simple project makes a huge impact. As a professional real estate appraiser my advice is always upgrade!

Remember value is key when maintaining your home’s condition. Touch up is simple too. Wipe and clean to bring out the fresh appearance should you get marks or spots.
