Problem: We just moved into a new build and the interior doors are just builder’s standard
Instead of changing out all the doors in your new home, save some cash by painting them and switching out the handles. For a custom look, paint the door grooves a contrasting colour like in this photo.
Problem: We have beautiful floorboards in our new home, but they’re pretty scratched in the main hallway
No need to replace those beautiful floors – rent a buffer to reseal the hardwood and restore them to a slick shine. Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, strip them down entirely and paint them in stripes or a herringbone pattern.
Problem: In the summer we love to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor, but sliding glass doors to the backyard don’t encourage that lifestyle
Make summer entertaining easier and invite the fresh air indoors by switching out those sliding doors with French doors that can stay swung open, or by installing a garage-style door that pulls up (and doubles as a shelter if it rains!).
