A few tips that we can all use in real estate during this pandemic. Stay healthy. xoxo Daniela
In addition to our usual routine, here are some of the extra measures we’ve introduced to promote health and safety:
The goal of this property was to work with a budget and standard finishes from Mattamy. I wanted to work with standard cabinets but make the home not so cookie cutter looking.
The oak cabinets feel “heavy” but with a white, crisp backsplash and no uppers it gives the kitchen a fresher approach. Yes, there really are minimal upper cabinets! There is plenty of space (I think) on the lower cabinets for storage. A DIY hood vent was a great idea and Scott did a great job.
We also saved money by choosing a laminate countertop as well as all standard tile. The paint colour that I chose was a standard choice as well. To make the kitchen look like not your typical builder basic kitchen I chose different hardware and Scott installed some shelves and scones. Yes, you can work with oak cabinets. You just have to be a little creative!
Here are some photos. Take a look!
With one month already behind us, February is a good month to really start tackling the “what to do list” for the home. Here are a few things you can do right now to make your home a happy place.
Love your plants. Studies have proven that house plants improve productivity, concentration, reduce stress levels and boost your mood.
Avoid heavy drapes that block all light. Natural light increases endorphins and serotonin. Studies have also shown that workers in sunlit areas are more productive than workers without exposure to natural light.
Your home should reflect your personality and style, which in turn makes us feel happy. Show off your kids artwork or pottery. Style your home with colours that put a smile on your face.
A cluttered home can leave you feeling stressed. Finding items in clutter can be a frustrating challenge. It is also difficult to clean when there is too much “stuff ” lying around. This is a great month to start decluttering room by room.
This was such a great property to work on. I originally went to the property for a colour and cabinet consult. This property has been fully renovated and is on the market now. It was a joy to showcase this property as well. I have done a few jobs in Kemptville , and it is always nice to work locally. Take a look!
