If you have lived in your home for any length of time or if you have purchased an older home you know that things can look dated and out of style. To maintain the value of your home it’s a good idea to keep it as updated and modern looking as possible; while remodeling and construction may not be in the plans you can still use soft goods such as window treatments and bedding to make rooms as stylish and attractive as possible. Take a look online for things like bedroom decor and designs  – you will find that there is a lot of free information available.

Bathrooms are the most-used rooms in a home and they are a big reason people choose or choose not to buy a new home. Keep your bathroom looking fresh with new bath and faucets along with modern bathroom hardware. It’s easy to update a bathroom in a weekend when you plan ahead.

To modernize a bathroom you may wish to replace the conventional shower curtain rod with a curved one like they do in the better hotels – it adds elbow room and can help to reduces leaks. A hookless  shower curtain is another hotel inspired upgrade– the result is a cleaner look plus most include a built-in liner. A handheld showerhead is an exotic European import which is incredibly luxurious and practical at the same time – there are many models designed for installation by a homeowner so there’s no need to call a plumber.

Make your bathroom more like a spa with the addition of a teak shower mat or bench. A towel warmer is another luxurious and modern touch that will be enjoyed by one and all; there are counter-top, wall mount and freestanding models designed to work in almost any bathroom configuration.
