Boost Your Curb Appeal

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

The street view of your home is the first thing that visitors see.  It also creates the first impression that potential homebuyers have of your home. Even if you’re not trying to sell your house, poor curb appeal can diminish your comfort level and enjoyment of your home. Here are some quick and easy ways to boost your home’s curb appeal.

• Repair, replace or paint an aging front door.
• Keep your lawn groomed and edged; add mulch to flower beds.
• Trim overgrown shrubs and trees; remove tired-looking plants.
• Place flowers in over-sized decorative pots near your front entrance.
• Add easy-to-read house numbers to the front of your house.
• Install low-level landscape lighting (consider solar lights if your climate permits).

An appealing exterior will make you feel good about your house every time you return home. For more curb appeal suggestions, visit the Better Homes and Gardens website.

Fully Upholstered Outdoor Furniture

Sunday, May 08th, 2011

Room & Board has introduced a line of outdoor furniture that features full upholstery, with couches and chairs featuring frames made from marine-grade birch plywood and anti-rust aluminum legs. The foam upholstery is covered with water-resistant fabric. If it does get wet, a draining mechanism helps keep moisture from building up and promotes quick drying.

The durable upholstery fabric is made from solution-dyed acrylic yarns with color that won’t fade. A special fabric finish repels water and stains.

Find out more about this stylish weather-resistant upholstered outdoor furniture at the Room & Board website.
