We're Grateful
for Home Improvements that can be Done Before Thanksgiving
November, 2014 - Issue #121
This month is all about being grateful for what you have, but it's also a time to be thankful for what you can have. Case in point: before-the-guests-get-here upgrades you'll love now and later.

Extra Seating
You've been blessed with a growing community of family and friends - but not enough chairs. All that changes when you choose an heirloom quality dining set with a variety of size, flexibility and finish options. A top pick: MacKenzie Dow's solid piece, made from Appalachian black cherrywood. No matter what you select, though, always spring for a custom table pad for protection. (We're speaking from experience.). Douglas Furniture 255-8366

Professional Help to Redesign your Space
'Tis the season to be proud of your home again! The chaos and stress of the holidays means that it's time to reward yourself with a little piece of perfection. At Rebecca Rollins Interiors (RRI), this season is when clients invest in the redesign of their most frequented spaces. Pictured here is one of RRI's recent living room redesigns. The beams, the double sheer drapery, the round chandelier and the subtle blends of rustic woods with industrial accent metals make this space uniquely inviting. The decanter filled with holiday spirits as a centerpiece makes this space a guaranteed hit! Rebecca Rollins Interiors 367-4394

A Healthier Home
Frequent exposure to mites, pet dander, bacteria, allergens and plain old dust can overload your body's system and tax your immunity. Don't wear yourself down fighting an unnecessary battle, especially during cold and flu season. Instead, schedule a truck-mounted steam cleaning of your carpets, upholstery and mattresses for an effective removal that leaves your home fresh and clean. The bonus to making your home healthier during the holidays is, of course, that it'll look great when guests arrive, too. Magic Maintenance 259-3373

New Carpet before Guests get Here
There comes a point in the life of a carpet when no amount of cleaning can save it. Flattened, threadbare and dingy, your old carpet becomes the star of the show - for all the wrong reasons. Pre-holiday sales on in-stock carpets make a makeover not only affordable, but fast. Installation can be scheduled as soon as the next day. Marty's Flooring 252-2522

An Instant Guest Room
Friends and family may only visit a few times a year, but you need a home office, gym or craft room every day. Wallbeds make it easy to entertain overnight guests without losing your space. In fact, you could gain more with the addition of coordinating bookshelves, desks and cupboards. Stylish wallbeds are available in finishes from light oak to rich cherrywoods. A Royal Suite 259-7000

Custom Framing
Custom framing can transform your home into an elegant holiday showcase. It's one of the easiest, quickest ways to brighten up tired decor. Take a favorite picture or painting and update the look with a new frame and matting. Build your room around a picture using it as the focal point. Custom mirrors are another stylish addition to any room. Mirrors can make a small room feel larger or brighten a dark spot. There are also options for updating the look of the mirror in your guest bathroom that will give you the custom-frame look without the custom-frame price. FASTFRAME 291-1325

A Fresh Coat of Style
Put "pop" into your space with a fresh coat of perfectly-applied paint. Go grey in a good way with this year's trendiest color, made modern with a stark white or classic with an antiqued neutral. No matter what shade you choose, make sure to select a painting company that puts as much effort into prep and paint as they do with communicating about your needs, wants and schedule.

A Frameless Shower Enclosure
Ditch the grimy, gross fiberglass door; drippy, mildewy curtain or dated framed glass enclosure before guests arrive. Your new frameless glass shower enclosure will expand your space visually while showing off your pretty tile. You can even choose a finish that fits your style. Valencia Custom Shower Doors

Wood that Works Wonders

Quick Solutions to Older Spaces
There are always improvements that can be done to your home in a week's time, especially in the kitchen or bathroom, that will make them look brand new. The first option would be to reface your cabinets in either the kitchen or bath. Try painting them a different color for an instant upgrade. Another option can be updating your light fixtures; it is an important element that often gets over looked. Be bold with the new selection! Finally, updating the wall color with either new paint or art work to add value to your space without breaking the bank.
