Sprucing up your home for the holidays

Glass TileIf you’re expecting guests this holiday season, it might be a good time to think about those updates you’ve been putting off. Here are some easy ways to make a big impact in a small time period.

Kitchen Backsplash

Most kitchen backsplashes are only 30-50 square feet, which means your budget goes a long way. Replacing an outdated or conventional backsplash with a more modern or stylish one can be updated for around $1,000. Styles such as fresh glass, stone mosaic, or even a hand crafted ceramic tile can be achieved at this budget, which includes everything from tear out, installation, materials and taxes. This can give the entire kitchen a new facelift. Since the family usually hangs out in the kitchen during the holidays, what better place to spruce up?

Powder Room

Update your bathroom by simply wainscoting and mirror framing. Tile wainscoting is another simple addition to the house that everybody will see. They’re all going to need to use the powder room sometime! This little remodel project can be done in a day or two and won’t interrupt your holiday planning.
