Making the best home remodeling decisions

Baseball is getting underway, the weather is heating up, and people are thinking about remodeling, which means that Spring is here.

While it might be easy deciding on a part of the house to remodel (kitchens are a perennial leader), deciding exactly what to do might be a harder task.

Mixing the latest trends with your personal style and taste is a recipe for success, especially if you know you are selling in the future. On the other hand, if you are lucky enough to own your forever home, then customize away!

A good rule of thumb when it comes to kitchen color is to go heavy on neutral tones (such as white, cream, or gray) and work in pops of color, according to this article.

Keeping that in mind when you are looking at cabinets and countertops will ensure your kitchen has a classic look that never goes out of style. Additionally, staying on neutral colors will save you money on appliances since white is the most popular and usually inexpensive color, the article says.

If all that remodeling talk hasn’t scared you off just yet, we have one last item for you.

It sounds like something out of a movie, but one remodeling project uncovered non-human remains at the work site, according to an article.

Police say the bones appear to be from animals and have been sent off for testing.

Have a great week!
