When Was the Last Time You Updated a Room in Your Home?


Nothing like an impending weekend visit from Grammy and Papa to motivate you to get the house in shape. All of the spare time and energy has gone into the bathroom for the last month and somehow when one room is a mess it seems to explode into the rest of the house.

So far this weekend you cleaned up the 900 square foot basement that you had been avoiding since February, moved the shelves and folding table in the laundry room, and did the floors and emptied it of any spare laundry piles, cleaned both boys rooms with them. Mostly, you have been swapping out seasons for their clothes. The two most exciting things, however, are that you finally put all the boxed up stuff from the bathroom away into the cabinets and added some stick on wood panels in the laundry room. Hopefully you can also carpet clean the rugs in the entry and hall because they are still gross from the winter.

All of this work is being completed without telling the boys why they need to get their rooms in shape because the grandparent visit is a surprise.

With very little effort, you are able to dramatically change the look of any space, as well as provide a splash of color if you want. Interior designers recommend updating a room’s decor every five to 10 years, but many of us fall short of this goal. In fact, without a graduation celebration or party to host, there are many people who let the way their home looks slide. Eventually, however, even the best housekeepers can grow weary of a space if it is never changed. Fortunately, there are a number of newer products that can help immediately transform any space. Likewise, there are many times when stick on panels can change a a difficult to keep clean painted wall into a space that is much more forgiving.

More than 52% of all hardwoods in North America are oak trees, so it may come as no surprise that there are a number of people who have hardwood floors in their homes.

Whether you are preparing for a visit from the grandparents or you are getting ready to make sure that your home is looking its best for an upcoming graduation party, there are many times when you can achieve a complete room makeover in one short weekend if you are using the right products.
