Small Remodeling Projects That Add Value New Doors And Trim “Many homes have plain flush doors that look rather boring,” says Bob Merrill, president and CEO for Chicago-based CMI, which makes CraftMaster Interior Doors. “One of the easiest ways to dramatically change the look inside your home is by replacing your current doors with raisedor flat-panel molded doors. New doors add fresh style, character and personality.”

(ARA) - With sales of homes remaining slow nationwide, many homeowners are looking for ways to add value now. Installing stylish interior doors and replacing old exterior trim are two great ways to make your home look great. Because they are made in various panel designs and can be easily painted or stained, interior doors have become a key part of a home’s overall decor.

When it comes to your home, first impressions are everything. Nothing makes a worse initial impression than exterior trim that is cracked, rotted, peeling or falling apart. With a clear cedar, wood grain texture on one side and a contemporary smooth finish on the other, MiraTEC trim is ideal for any home style. It is most often used for roofline fascia, soffits, window and door trim, corner trim, dentil, gables, column wraps, trim along porches and similar architectural components.

to add decorative accessories. For example, a spicy orange vase on the dining room table can play off a bold accent wall in the kitchen.

It’s easy to incorporate designer tricks into your space, no matter the style or existing decor. Focus on adding layers of color and texture, and notice how hues flow from room to room to create a cohesive design. Choosing coordinating colors is easy when you have the right guide. For example, the new HGTV (R) HOME by Sherwin-Williams line of interior paints and supplies features eight designerinspired color collections - each with 20 colors that work well together, no matter how many or how few are selected along with expert design tips to help doit-yourselfers create harmonious room-toroom color transitions.

Another popular designer technique is to turn flooring into a flexible decorating element. Try layering a vibrant area rug from the HGTV HOME Flooring by Shaw collection over a hard-surface floor or a neutral carpet - it’s easy to change as design preferences evolve.
