Home improvement isn’t just a popular TV show from the 90’s. It is also something many are individually engaging in during these tough economic times. Since the housing market took a turn for the worst, homeowners are trying to turn what they have into a better situation instead of trying to buy new homes and constantly find the bigger better offer. This is smart. There is a lesson to be learned here, that people should be content and happy with what they have, not with what they don’t have. But that is neither here nor there.
The point is, many are choosing to upgrading their existing homes by making small and simple improvements to increase the home’s market value. That way when it is time to sell, they have something of worth. There are many different projects people undertake to improve their homes including repairing or replacing old windows, cleaning up or replacing worn down siding, updating HVAC and other equipment to be more energy conscious, and even installing fireplaces. All of these things can add value to your home. In this article we’d like to briefly spotlight one home improvement project that is both attractive and functional.
Another way in which people can add value to their homes is by making living spaces such as dens and dining rooms more formal. This is something home appraisers look for. Just how do you make a room more formal? One way is by adding a door. For example, if a dining room is adjacent to a kitchen, you can make that dining room more formal by adding a door that separates the kitchen from the dining room. A great way to do this is by implementing sliding door hardware, also known as flat track or barn door hardware. This type of hardware allows homeowners to slide their doors back and forth instead of having them swing open and closed. This is nice because when in the open position, the doors stay flush against the wall, beautifully adding to the room’s decor while staying out of the way.
When it comes to adding doors to create more private and formal rooms, sliding door hardware or barn door hardware is the best choice of all your options.
