How to Add Character to Your Home.

Do you feel like your home leaves a bit to be desired in the character department? Maybe you just purchased a newly constructed home with builder-grade finishes. Or perhaps your home was built during a time not known for charm or architectural details. Luckily, no matter how plain-Jane or cookie-cutter you your think yours might be, you can transform your home into high style with some low cost upgrades.

  1. blogAdd textural interest to any interior space with wainscoting. Available in a variety of styles, inexpensive, and fairly simple to install, wainscoting can add a classic, rustic, or eclectic element to any room.
  1. Use wood beams to add an earthy element to a room. Used in both traditional and modern design, wood beams can be used to accent a ceiling, fireplace, or even act as shelving to display collectables or dishes in a kitchen.
  1. Who says doors have to be boring? From barn doors to Dutch doors and everything in between, swapping out a standard door with something more interesting will quickly add character and charm.
  1. Gone are the days of grandma’s wood paneling. Today, wood paneling comes in a variety of styles and finishes, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind space. Opt for a whitewashed finished in a sunroom for a beachy cottage feel, dark mahogany for a study, or horizontal planks for a modern twist.
  1. Bring a traditionally outdoor element (slate, that is) Place irregularly shaped slate on your entryway, kitchen, mudroom, or laundry room floors for a time-tested, durable, and stylish look.
  1. Wash away the worries of the day in a luxurious free-standing tub. From elegant claw-foot to a more sleek, modern design, free-standing tubs have timeless appeal that will not only improve your bubble bath experience, but add value to your home.

You know what else adds value to your home?  Well-maintained heating and cooling systems.  And yet, even if you have no plans to sell your home, it’s still a good idea to have your home comfort system professionally cleaned and inspected once a year.  And right now, just like always, Absolute Air is volunteering to do the job for you.  Give us a call, especially if it’s been a year or long since either of your systems was last maintained.
