Design Ideas to Consider

When considering a new home, or considering an addition to or remodeling of your existing home, its important to think about your lifestyle room by room.  

Do you plan to use a bedroom as an office?  If so, will you need additional outlets to accommodate your computer, fax machine, telephone, router, component chargers, and so forth?  
Do you entertain?  Are you interested in a larger living area, or a kitchen island for more counterspace?
Do you want to prewire your home for high-speed internet access?  For surround sound?
Do you want the added comfort provided by ceiling fans or air conditioning?  
Do you have children?  Pets?  There are a variety of options for laminate, hardwood, and tile flooring, as well as many choices for carpeting with stain protection as well.  

Think about your lifestyle and imagine yourself living in this new space.  The possibilities are endless.

Working with Color

Color can play a significant role in not only the design of your space, but how you live in it as well.  Remember that good color doesn't cost more than bad color.  

It's always a good idea to bring along pictures, paint chips, textures, etc, to help you with your decision-making.
Pale or cool colors can make a room appear larger than it is by creating the illusion that the walls are farther apart.
Warm colors give the impression that objects are closer together; an intimate, cozy atmosphere results when warm colors are used correctly.
Dark colors attract heat and light colors reflect heat.
Contrasting colors can draw attention to an object or an area.  You can use a complementary color on an accent wall or focal wall to highlight an area or a piece of furniture.


New and Existing Wood Stain

New and existing wood stains in your home don't have to match, but they should complement each other.
Sometimes an existing color can be matched to have a continuous, cohesive look.  
Sometimes coupling a dark wood and a light wood looks better than trying to match the existing color.

A Message from Joe and Bill- We've Expanded!

To Our Valued Client,

We've had the opportunity to help you care for your home as A to Z Home Maintenance.  Now we're pleased to share with you news that we've expanded our range of capabilities to more fully serve your needs and interests.

With nearly twenty years in business with A to Z Maintenance, we understand the value of a home.  Our experience in contracting as well as property management affords us a unique knowledge base and range of expertise ideally suited to meeting your needs not only as a homeowner, but also in terms of giving you the advantage you deserve in the real estate market.

Properties in The Hideout and Wallenpaupack Lake Estates have enjoyed considerable market appreciation in the years since you purchased your home.  We'd like to extend to you an offer for a complimentary market analysis of your home.  Even if you're not presently looking to sell your house, it's to your benefit to stay on top of the market trends.  Having joined Coldwell Banker Lifestyles Realty, we're pleased to be able to offer you this advantage.

Newly lowered mortgage rates provide a great opportunity for investing in a vacation or primary home.  This may be the time for friends and family who have enjoyed spending time in your Hideout or WLE home with you to invest in a Poconos house of their own.  Alternately, lowered interest rates also afford opportunities for additional income generating investment properties.  You may be concerned about things you've read or heard regarding recent downward trends in home purchases.  The market for homes in the Poconos, however, has remained strong.  Over the past ten months, there have been over three hundred property transactions in The Hideout and Wallenpaupack Lake Estates alone, indicating that the Poconos' appeal as a vacation and homestead destination has not been affected.

If you or someone you know are interested in a complimentary market analysis of your home, or want to find out more about current real estate listings in the area, please give us a call.  Just as we've been there in the past with A to Z Maintenance, we're pleased to be here for your future.  We look forward to speaking with you soon.

                                                                                    With appreciation for your continued patronage,

                                                                                                                                    Joe Paladino

                                                                                                                                    Bill Culley
