How Pinterest Can Be Misleading

House Painting Company in Largo

Pinterest has magically made people feel like they can conquer any home project with a trip to Michael’s. And, sometimes, that is true. Actually, thanks to Pinterest, people are getting more creative and hands-on with their homes.

But there are some home projects that should not be DIY. Ever. (I don’t care how many Pins you have pinned to your “Dream Home” board that you think will help you).

Painting your home is one of those projects.

If you are fortunate enough to realize that your home could use a little rejuvenation, consider yourself one of the few because far too many people are in denial that their house looks good– which is understandable. After all, it is something we see every day of our lives; it’s hard to notice the small wear and tears that happen. But over time our paints fade, crack and peel. They lose their vibrant appearance– especially when they’re forced to withstand the brutal Florida heat day after day.

Don’t make the mistake of trying to paint your house yourself. While exterior house painting can look like the fun, exciting, and bonding life event often portrayed  in movies (topped with a music backdrop), it is actually a frustrating, rigorous and tedious project that you’ll be grateful you hired a professional painting contractor for.

Not only will they be able to offer expert advice, like the best colors to paint your home if you are trying to sell it, but they will save you time, energy and money that you can put towards another home project you’ll be more successful at…. like crayon art or bur-lapping your lamps.

Keep in mind that there are certain things you need to keep in mind before hiring a painting contractor. But once you find the painting company in Largo you feel confident with, you will be glad to be able to sit back and watch your home regain it’s aesthetic appeal and value.

After all, beauty is important on the outside, too. At least when it comes to your home.

Vacuuming Is Not Enough

Carpet Cleaning Service in Largo and Clearwater

Spilling something on an expensive shirt is one thing, but when you spill something on your carpet it’s a different story. It’s not like you can exactly spray some OXYclean and throw it in the washer machine, right?

Too many people think vacuuming is enough. Until recently, I did as well. I figured if I bought an expensive enough vacuum, and implemented a strict policy of taking your shoes off at the door, dirt buildup would never be an issue. Boy, was I wrong.

It is amazing (and disgusting) how quickly our carpets can turn almost an entirely different color. What seems like a small wine spill (followed by aggressive scrubbing with baking soda and water) here, and a little tracked mud the dog brings in there, actually add up over time to a big mess of a carpet.

Professional carpet cleaning may seem like a silly service to some—but these are also probably the same people who will be slapped with gross charges when moving out of their rented apartment, or are oblivious to what other people aren’t—that their carpets make their home look dingy.

Best Colors for Selling Your Home

Did you know that the color your home is painted can actually have an affect on how well it sells?

Most people are aware that certain colors have certain psychological effects on people, but most don’t apply that knowledge when it comes to their homes.

The past few years have not presented us with the best economy, and so it’s important that if you are looking to sell your piece of real estate, you gain a cutting edge over the competition out there. If you call us at West Shore Painters, we’ll come out and give you a free estimate for house painting in Clearwater and surrounding areas and help you decide the best course of action to take.

When most people are shopping for their new dream house, they are looking for a certain number of bedrooms, a certain style, a place close to good schools they can send their children to. And even if they are okay with finding a home that needs some work done to it, the way it is initially presented does influence how they view it.

As with people, you only have one chance to make a first impression. Best Colors to Paint Your Home if You're Trying to Sell it

Painting your home the right color can provide a backdrop for imagination for your potential buyer. It will give off a certain vibe.

So what are the best colors to paint your home if you’re trying to sell it? Two of the most popular colors are, as you can probably guess, white and tan. But maybe not for the reasons you think.

  • White: It meshes well with any neighborhood, it’s neutral and clean looking, and it often makes property appear larger.
  • Beige/Tan: These color are a great option for a home located in a scenic and/or wooded environment. It gives a warm, friendly feeling.

Too many people try to make their house “stand out” and end up painting it a more vibrant color hoping to really grasp the attention of potential buyers. But it is important to keep in mind that you are trying to sell your home, not enter it in a contest. While eccentric colors might attract your perfect buyer, it is both a safer and better option to appeal more to a wider audience… if you want to have a higher chance of selling it, anyway!

If you are looking to sell your home and want to get a FREE ESTIMATE for exterior house painting in St Petersburg, Clearwater or a surrounding area, give us a call at West Shore Painters today.

Largo Furniture Cleaning Company

It’s embarrassing. And it’s something you’ve have been meaning to take care of for a while, but have continually let it slide, knowing there are more important life events that demand your attention.

But the problem simply doesn’t go away. You hate having guests over. You remind yourself to do something about it every time you go to relax… but still, it hasn’t been done.

We’re talking about your dingy furniture. That couch L shaped red couch you love so much? Admit it. You loved it a lot more when it was just a tad bit more vibrant looking.

Over time, it can be difficult to see how wear and tear is affecting the over all appearance of our home, especially fabric and upholstered. And once you do notice it, it’s hard to notice anything else… especially when you want to lay back and relax but can’t stop staring at the who-knows-what food stain on the ottoman.

If any of this is familiar to you, it’s time to call a professional Largo furniture cleaning company that can take this one small, but consistent, irritant in your life.

You can try generic cleaning products, especially to help on a day to day basis, but if you care about maintaining the longevity of your furniture’s lifespan, or really care about keeping your home decor looking fresh and new, it is far better to have it professional cleaned at least once every 6 months.
