Updating ranch home pictures
We’ve lived in our 1964 ranch style house for the past 7 years with our 2 teenage daughters, and there’s always some type of project (or three) in the works.I’m always painting something, and it helps that I work at the family paint and decorating shop 30 hours a week.
An updated ranch home fits in better alongside taller neighboring homes, and attracts more buyers, if you list it for sale.If the family room goes unused, utilize the kitchen side for an island workstation with bar stools, and then use the rest as a home office partly sectioned off by a clutter-hiding folding screen or more up-to-date frosted-glass sliding panels.When a complete kitchen overhaul is not an option, replace old, laminate countertops with recycled glass or granite.Finish with a curb-to-door walkway that starts with a gate flanked by stone or brick pillars to stretch the design footprint in different directions.
But if you have “higher” expectations, gables are your go-to.Thanks so much for having my home on your tour, Debbie! My name is Angie and I blog at Postcards from the Ridge.
