Homeownership Tips from Your Local Naples Hardware Store

If you own a home in Florida, there are many people who would consider that the same as winning the lottery. As lucky as we are to live in the Sunshine State, the year-round sun and threat of hurricanes can be tough on homes. Here are four homeownership tips from your local Naples hardware store to keep your home beautiful for years to come.

Give your home a fresh coat of paint

Adding a fresh coat of paint to the interior of your home can instantly brighten up the space and refresh its look. If your home’s exterior has dulled due to years of Florida’s sun, a fresh coat of paint on the outside is a great way to add some curb appeal.

Upgrade your moulding

If you were to get down to your mouldings level and take a good look at it, chances are it’s time for an upgrade. Upgrades can come in many shapes and sizes, or from simply touching up the knicks and scratches with paint to replacing it entirely.

Consider a bathroom remodel

Did you know the average return on resale for a bathroom model is 102 percent? Even if you’re not planning to sell your home anytime soon, upgrading the most minute details of your bathroom can improve your home’s overall aesthetic. You don’t need to hire a contractor to perform these simple homeownership tasks like…

  • Recaulking the tub
  • Removing dated wallpaper
  • Adding new cabinet hardware

If you opt for new cabinet hardware, the experts at Smith & DeShields, Inc. are happy to help you choose from their wide selection of well-known manufacturers with competitive pricing.

Install a new front door

Installing a new front door to your home is a fantastic way to keep your home safe and add a small upgrade. Not only does it add curb appeal but upgrading your front door can protect your home from would-be intruders and storms that threaten our Florida homes during hurricane season every year. In fact, picking a door that’s Florida building code compliant and hurricane-rated is a Sunshine State must.
