Does Your AZ Home Need Updating?

You purchased your home 5, 10+ years ago. Back then, it may have been fully updated and turn-key, or maybe you bought a fixer upper and never got around to finishing it. If you can feel your home’s age, it may be time to do some updating. You can update it from the inside, or from the outside - it all depends on how much time you have. Whatever you choose, you will improve your living surroundings, and are now increasing your home’s equity.

Update the Inside

With all that's available: online shopping, purchasing new furnishings is as easy as a tapping a few buttons on your phone. Update your overworn couch, purchase new chinaware, or find a great entryway table.

Try finding unique pieces at garage sales or consignment stores and repainting them to match your homes style. If you have more time, look into painting rooms, replacing old flooring, or renovating the bathrooms and kitchen.

While you beautify the interior of your home, you'll want to protect it, too. If you want to customize the visibility of the inside of your home, look into having window sun screens installed to all the windows in your home. This will give you the security and privacy you’re looking for, being able to see out of your windows, but bystanders wont be able to see in.

Update Your Exterior

When you update the outside of your home, you instantly improve its curbside appeal. In your front yard you could update your landscaping with new plants, a fountain, or pavement. Replacing your old garage door will make your life easier if it hasn’t been working properly in addition to giving your home a uniform look.

Custom window sun screens can completely change the look of your Arizona Home's exterior. Replace old, faded, or torn window sun screens to give your home an elegant, and more sophisticated look.

A Backyard Dream

If you’re more into updating your backyard, look at updating your pool with a waterfall or new tiles, upgrade your patio furniture with newly upholstered cushions & umbrellas, or purchase a new grill for all the summertime parties you can host in your updated backyard.

Get ready to party!

To prevent damage to your new furniture and grill, you can also install awnings or patio shades. Awnings attach directly to your home and are retractable so you can choose whether or not you want to use it. Patio shades are a great option if you want to be able to shade your patio like an awning, but want more coverage and versatility. With patio shades you can protect your patio from different kind of weather including rain! In addition, it shields it from unwanted insects and from blocks most of the sun’s harmful rays.

Is Your Home Energy Efficient?

Is it too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer? Do you feel like your wallet is emptying quicker than usual? If you answered yes to either, maybe the real question you should be asking yourself if whether or not your home is energy efficient.

Here are a few things to take into consideration when trying to find out if your home is energy efficient.

The Age of Your Appliances

Your hand-me-down washer and dryer units are all probably wonderful appliances, but if they are not energy star certified, it’s time to upgrade. You may be spending money upfront, but according to Direct Energy, over just a 5 year span you can save over $300 on your electric bill just by switching to more energy efficient appliances.

 

Gaps Between Your Windows

Can you feel air coming through the cracks of your windows? If so, there’s a good chance that you’re turning up the heat or air because of these uncontrolled air leaks. By simply sealing these spots, Energy.gov says you can save around 10-20% on annual heating and cooling bills.

Start a Compost Pile

Reducing the amount of trash you produce daily by starting a compost pile in your backyard not only helps the environment, it can be used to fertilize your garden, where you can grow your very own organic fruits and vegetables.

Use Less Water

According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), homeowners can save about $170 a year on average benefiting from changes to their water usage. Being conscious of running water while doing daily task like shaving or brushing your teeth can be helpful. Also, bathing typically uses 75 gallons of water compared to a shower that uses about 17.2 gallons on average.

Sun Filters Through Your Windows Most Of The Day

Even with sealing the unwanted air coming through gaps in your home, it could still heat up from the sun’s rays coming through the windows. Consider solar blocking drapery or installing sun screens in this case. When you install sun screens in your home, not only do you make your home more energy efficient, but you also get privacy and security from any wandering eyes outside, without the need of bulky fabric.

Get Ready For The Heat! How To Turn Your Home Into A Summer Oasis

When the heat comes in full force, there’s nothing you can do but embrace it. Here are a few ways you can turn your home into an oasis that makes you forget just how hot it is outside.

REFRESH YOUR BACKYARD

Whether that means fresh, new grass, a summer vegetable garden, string lights, or fresh tile in and around the pool. These are some of the few ways to make your home feel like an oasis. Summers are best spent in and around the pool and the barbeque, so think about making your patio more comfortable. This could be a new grill, new cushions for your patio set, an awning, or patio shades.

PROVIDE A SPACE WITH SHADE

An awning is a great choice to keep your patio cool as it provides shade, but it can also be retractable if you feel like basking in the summer sun for a while. All Pro Shade Concepts even has retractable awnings that can be controlled by your smartphone! If you’re looking for more shade than an awning can provide, look to patio shades. Patio shades hold many of the same benefits as an awning, but encloses a patio to further block the sun and can be utilized to block out other weather elements in other seasons.

This could be done inside your home or in your backyard. Little trinkets and accents like throw pillows can make any space instantly more comfortable and homey. For a bargain, look to your local discount store or sale sections in your favorite stores. You’d be surprised the treasures you can find.

LOOK UP SUMMER INSPIRED DRINKS

What better way to relax amid the summer heat than to sip on an ice cold drink? Look up recipes online - like a homemade peach iced tea - grab the ingredients and your favorite pitcher, kick up your feet and relax with the cool air inside your home.
