Accessorizing your walls is a basic decoration must do for your home, which if done right adds a little of your personality to your home and gives off a bold look guaranteed to impress your guests. No matter what size your place is, you are always sure to have wall space that can offer extra style to the whole room. Not sure of what to do? Follow this list for amazing possibilities of wall decoration ideas that you can try out at home.

  1. Large-scale artwork - A gigantic wall painting or photograph is sure to command attention from any eye that steps into the room. If you have a favorite family photo from a recent vacation, have a photographer blow it up to an enormous size and hang it on the wall in a minimalist frame. Or in the absence of that, you may decide to do a gallery wall of large size pictures of important events in your home.
  2. Hang Mirrors - Wall mirrors help to reflect light and give off the illusion of extra space and brightness. You can decide to go for an oversized mirror or pick out several smaller pieces that you can make into a beautiful grouping.
  3. Wall to Wall Paintings - Opt for a ceiling-to-floor wall painting or wallpaper to transport you to another location. Know any promising artists? Commission them to draw up a picture of your favorite holiday destination. If you are concerned about damage to the walls, you can use wallpaper instead of painting directly on the walls.
  4. Hanging Plants or Pressed Plants - Are you a plant lover but you don't have a lot of floor space around your home? Try out wall mounted or hanging plants to bring some extra color to your walls. Want something more straightforward? Try out framing leaves and branches from your favorite plants and put them in glass cases for an earthy natural vibe. You can also decide to do a dried floral wall display.
  5. Hang Up Your Plate Collection - Why hide your favorite dishware behind a wooden china cabinet door? You can decide to do a plate wall decoration story, allowing your fine china to serve as fine art too. All you need is a wire plate hangar which you can quickly get from any hobby or hardware store, and you are ready to display your favorite dishes.

Now you don't have to settle for a regular wall—any of these choices will help your guests have something to admire in your home. Remember though: if you're prepping your home for selling, get advice from your home professional for neutral art to attract buyers.

If living green is a new endeavor for you, reducing your waste output down to zero is an ambitious goal. However, it is a noble one. With some re-thinking and effort, you can make great strides in the quantity of trash you and your household produces. Put in some of these practices and what you add to landfills can be significantly reduced.

Start with one or two of these practices. Get the whole family on board. As you succeed, add in another one or two, and soon, you will have your home running smoothly green-conscious.

Zero waste tips

  • Shop in bulk. Larger packaging often means less packaging, so that giant bag of toilet tissue at the big box store reduces your waste at once. Additionally, most warehouse-type stores do not offer plastic or paper bags. Instead, they recycle the boxes and crates that products come in for customers to use exiting the store. Better still, bringing your reusable bags and containers decreases your waste from shopping even more.
  • When offered bags in traditional grocery, sundry, or clothing stores, say “no.” Carry collapsible sacks in your handbag or pocket to hold the items you buy. If you do take home sacks, be sure to reuse or recycle them.
  • Bring home less stuff. Curb your shopping habit so that you only bring back those items that you genuinely need. Instead, spend more time window shopping and just enjoying the things on the mannequin without taking them home. If shopping is your therapy, redirect your funds to an experience such as a spa treatment or foot massage instead.
  • Make memories, not purchases. When you used to use shopping to bond with your children, instead, find an activity you can do together such as an escape room, time in an arcade, or playing mini golf. Those memories last a lifetime while a new toy or clothing may only last for a season.
  • Instead of baggies, cling wrap, and foil for your leftovers, invest in reusable glass containers with BPA-free lids that seal. You reduce waste, and your food tastes better. Utilizing containers made of freezer-to-oven glass reduces your water waste too since you can store and cook in the same dish.
  • Rent instead of buy. For big-ticket clothing items that you will use or wear only once or twice, take advantage of local and online shops that let you rent formal wear, prom dresses, wedding clothes and other unique occasion items, and even a new wardrobe regularly. Check out sites such as Rent the Runway and Stich Fix or a local store in your area that rents clothing. Like tuxedo rentals, you will save on waste, closet space, and money.
  • Make the thrift stores and charity shops part of your shopping habit. Of course, donating gently used clothing and household items is always a great idea to reduce waste, support a worthy cause, and give someone else the opportunity to buy something they will love at a great price. However, shopping there is good for you too. Take a bag or two to donate and then while away a couple of hours shopping in the same store. Other folks may have donated just the items you need for your household. You save time and money both.

If you are in the market for a home designed for green living, reach out to your real estate agent and inform them of your needs. They may have access to more detailed information about homes coming on the market with green or alternative energy sources and access to other waste reduction options.

A home appraisal enables a seller to learn about the value of his or her house relative to the current housing market. As such, an appraisal represents an important opportunity, particularly for a seller who wants to maximize the profits from his or her home sale.

Ultimately, it helps to plan ahead for a home appraisal. If you prepare for an appraisal, you can use the appraisal results to achieve your home selling goals in no time at all.

Let's take a look at three tips to help you get ready to perform a home appraisal.

1. Learn About Your Home's Strengths and Weaknesses

What you initially paid for your house is unlikely to match the current value of your residence. Fortunately, if you understand your house's strengths and weaknesses, you can prioritize home improvements and complete these upgrades. As a result, you may be able to boost your chances of receiving a favorable property valuation during a home appraisal.

Also, it may be beneficial to conduct a home inspection before you schedule an appraisal. That way, you can use the inspection results to determine which areas of your house need to be upgraded.

2. Assess the Housing Market

The present real estate sector will impact the valuation of your house. To establish realistic expectations for a home appraisal, it often helps to analyze the current housing market.

If homes are selling quickly, this likely indicates that a seller's market is in place. This market favors sellers and may enable you to receive plenty of offers if you establish a competitive price for your home.

Comparatively, if homes linger on the real estate market for many days, weeks or months, a buyer's market may be in place. In this market, you may need to set an aggressive price to help your residence stand out to potential buyers.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

A home appraisal is an important part of the home selling journey. And if you collaborate with a real estate agent, you can work with a home selling expert who can help you maximize your property valuation during an appraisal.

With a real estate agent at your side, you can receive comprehensive support throughout the home selling journey. A real estate agent can put you in touch with the top home appraisers in your city or town. Furthermore, a real estate agent can help you determine how to price your house to ensure you can stir up significant interest in your residence.

A real estate agent also is happy to help you review any offers on your home. If you're unsure about whether to accept, reject or counter a homebuying proposal, a real estate agent can help you weigh the pros and cons of each option.

Ready to conduct a home appraisal? Use the aforementioned tips, and you can perform a home appraisal before you add your residence to the housing market.
