When decorating your home,
it is seems intriguing to decorate with something that is unusual and
complicated. Looking at magazines that concentrate on design, they show
beautiful show pieces and unusual decorations. But the big thing to remember is
that most of the homes they show are owned by people who can afford the unusual
and then also afford to change it once it gets tiring.
I was looking at a
magazine yesterday and it showed a light that was made of twigs, now it did
catch my eye and I’m sure that if I saw it in someone’s home that I would be
amazed at the look, but the first thing that went through my mind, was what a nightmare
it would be to clean it, and then how long before the people who had it in their
home would want it replaced, My guess, not very long.
I was talking to my sister
the other day, and she was talking about putting paint on her walls that had a
texture to it. My response to her was how much work it will be to remove the
texture when you get tired of it. That’s what is so important when you
decorate, your taste will change and also fads change, so when you decorate
your home, make sure that it will not cost you a lot of time and money to
In my business of Property
Management in Anaheim Ca. I tell my clients not to get too crazy when it comes
to fixing up their rental property. I have talked about a survey from renters
that says, they care about many things when it comes to the homes that they
rent, but fancy looking decor is not high on the list.
Any time you decorate a
rental property, make sure it is easy to clean, or easy to replace. Always
remember, no matter how good your tenant is, they will not take care of the
home as if it were theirs, because it is not theirs.
Back to your personal
residence, You can do great things when
it comes to making your home look exotic by just using unusual paint color, and
when you get tired of the crazy color you chose, it can be changed very easy.
Never put tile on the walls of your home, again for a while it may look good
but it is a lot of work when you decide to remove the tile.
Your floors are different.
In my opinion, even though carpet is cheap, I find it gross. Every time I see
carpet being removed and all that dirt and dust and other debris that flies
through the air, I think that this is like a garbage collection device that is
right in the middle of your home. No matter how much you clean your carpet, it
is not clean. I recommend either tile or wood floors. In your personal
property, wood is great, but in a rental property stay with tile, much easier to
maintain and much more durable.
In the end, when changing
the decor of your home can be a fun thing to do, but just make sure that when
you get tire of the new look, you can change it to the next new look
without spending a lot of time and money
to do it.
