Tired of cutting grass? Add a garden in the parking strip instead. Here is a great one using rocks and shrubs. The plantings are set back far enough to get a car door open and the rocks provide a place to walk when exiting the vehicle. Very low maintenance.

This dated, do-it-yourself, bathroom sink area needed an overhaul. There were mixed sizes of tiles and funky, 1950's era, mirrors and fixtures.
A new porcelain sink is supported by a furniture style cabinet. There is white wainscoting on the wall. A partition between the sink and the toilet was removed to open up the room. A wood framed mirror (actually an old window with the glass removed and mirror panels installed) and a small wooden cabinet, for storage, complete the look. Now the bathroom compliments the rest of the 1914 vintage home.

Here are some photos of a home I listed. We took a very boring, ordinary basement room with 1960's fake wood paneling, an exposed water supply line, and an old linoleum floor with rust stains on it and turned it into a warm and inviting family room.
The plumbing line was boxed in. The walls and ceiling painted a warm color. The stained floor was professionally washed, waxed, and buffed. Then a stager brought in family room furniture and an area rug. WahLa!
This now adds good livable square footage to the home.The home sold in a short period of time and for a higher price than if the work was not done. Call me if I can help you with your real estate needs to get you a higher price. (The colors in the third photo are truer colors to how it really looked.)
