Halloween is tomorrow! The air is filled with excited kids ready to dress up and go trick-or-treating and partygoers ready to have fun! Whether you’re just handing out candy or if you are throwing a Halloween party, make sure you home’s property is ready and open to the public while dodging insurance claims and lawsuits!

  • Visible path: To ensure visitors can see your path clearly, keep your lights on and make sure there are no decorations blocking the pathway to your door. This can avoid injuries, while allowing trick-or-treaters to know you still have candy.
  • Avoid open flames: While candles can set the dim-lighting mood or perfect scent within your home, they can also cause a terrible fire if knocked over. If you are throwing a Halloween…

This may seem to be just a female problem, but it is actually a family-wide issue! Piles of shoes around the house are not something you want to display; it looks messy and, even worse, unorganized! Luckily for you, we have some storage ideas to help remedy this situation!

From extra closet space or extra wall space, build wall mounted shelving. With this, you can either keep the shoes inside their boxes and store them that way, or let them breath, and align them neatly on the shelf for easy display. Just as long as they are not taking up floor space!

We recommend fiberglass doors because they will last longer, and once stained, it will look like real wood. Make sure everything matches as well. The door should match perfectly with the rest of the exterior. Also be sure the door and window trims are all the same color.

You can even play with color. Having a colorful doorway creates a warm greeting. Go bright and fun with yellow or…

A home sale can happen faster when it is clean and well put together. This does not include maintenance and renovations only; the interior design should also be on point. An empty house looks dull in photos, and buyers tend to base their judgment on the home for how it looks on the inside, even though the belongings are not a part of the sale. Make your house stands out more with basic fillers to add to your empty corner spaces. Whether you are selling your home, or just looking for interior tips, corners often go ignored... until now!

  • Furniture: Try filling the space with furniture. If you need big fillers, try a curved or cornered sofa/sectional. An eating area is also another big filler. A round table will really define the empty area. If you…
