Most people only consider how their window coverings look from the inside of their home. But the outside of your home is just as important, especially if you live in an HOA community. Choose window coverings that come with a liner, so you can have a cohesive look to the front of your house. Take these bamboo shades, for instance. You can choose a privacy liner in several colors. That way you can have the window coverings you want and still conform to the HOA's regulations.

The right landscaping can take a lot of time and cost a lot of money. But just a few simple changes, like pulling weeds, planting a new tree, or making a pretty flower bed can make a big difference. Enlist the help of family and friends. Just a few hours of work and you can have a whole new front yard.
These four simple changes can make all the difference between selling your home and making a large profit. Or it can mean that you'll finally love your home's exterior. Don't limit your style and personality to the inside of your home. A home's exterior is the perfect blank canvas to showcase the best parts of yourself.
