Improve Your Kitchen to Help Sell Your Home

My husband and I recently put our home onto the market, because we were expecting a baby and need to upgrade to something larger. When offers rolled in that were really low, we decided to ask our realtor why people thought the house was worth so much less than it was. He was honest and told us that he had heard our kitchen was a bit of an eyesore. He was right, but I had actually put off renovations because I knew we were looking to sell the home soon. We took the gamble and renovated our kitchen. It paid off! We received an offer that was near our asking price, and it made the kitchen renovations well worth it! I created this blog to help others struggling to sell their homes realize that a few small improvements can help you finally sell your home!

The Best Ways To Beautify Your Swimming Pool

A basic swimming pool may not look like it is a natural part of your surroundings, but it still gets the job done. But if you care about the aesthetics of your swimming pool, there are ways that you can make it even more beautiful:

Keep It Clean

The most basic part of a swimming pool beautification comes from the cleanliness of the pool. You could place your pool in an open area where there is little that might fall into it, but this will cause your surroundings to seem more stark and barren. Instead, it is recommended that you simply take time every day to remove any debris that has fallen into the pool. Make sure that the filter is functioning properly so that the water is glistening rather than looking cloudy. 

Light It Up

LED lights make it easier to add illumination to your pool. The LED lights can help highlight the beauty of the pool and cast reflections all around your space. Consider getting outdoor speakers that can play music in order to further set the tone. The speakers are sometimes shaped in the form of rocks or other natural elements so that the speakers do not disrupt the natural surrounding.

Make It Natural

If you are looking for more natural surroundings, there are some plants that work well with swimming pools. For instance, it is recommended that you use ornamental grasses and shrubs. The best flowers to select are those that bloom over a long period, especially throughout the summer. For instance, it makes little sense to use flowers that only bloom in the spring if it will be too cold to enjoy them during the spring. It's a good idea to select plants that do not attract bugs because many of these bugs will fall into the pool and will make it more difficult to clean. Also, attracting so many bugs will make the experience less enjoyable. 

Add Darkness

One downside of selecting the least expensive pool option is that swimming pools often stand out. One way to correct this is to select pool walls that come in a color that blends in with the natural surroundings. Darker colors are recommended because they create a better contrast and are also able to absorb the sun's rays better, which allows for more heat retention. This makes your pool warmer and makes it possible to use it for longer.
