Two national pastimes around tax season involve contemplating
these important issues:
- How should I spend my tax refund this year?
- What improvements would add real value to my
Bringing the two together gives you a big win/win, sort of
like catching a foul ball in the cheap seats at a Texas Ranger’s game. For a
small investment, you get a big return! Investing your tax refund back into
your home will pay dividends for years by providing improved comfort for your
family and increasing the value of your home.
So whether you want to sell and increased value will raise
the sales price, or you just want to upgrade the old Kentucky homestead for
your own enjoyment, erasing “generational footprints” with new, trending design
and exceptional value, using your tax refund is a great way to go!
Home values immediately make us think of realtors, brokers and
home renovation gurus, so we polled online experts and identified several improvements
that they all agreed can greatly increase a home’s value.
- Ninety-four percent of real
estate pros recommend spending money on
- Flooring upgrades like engineered or real
- Removing worn carpets
- New bathroom or kitchen floors
- Basement renovation
- Front yard makeover, including an attractive
- Cleaning up and implementing low-maintenance
- The right deck can give back, dollar for dollar, what you put
- Get rid of popcorn ceilings
decorative concrete artisans can help with all of those home improvements,
except the popcorn ceilings; you’re on your own for that!
adds value and beauty indoors
The versatility of stamped, stained and resurfaced concrete
makes it the ideal flooring solution for interior floors like basements,
bathrooms, kitchens and family rooms that receive lots of wear and tear. The
durability of all three decorative concrete finishes will keep your indoor
floors carefree for years. Your new concrete floors will stay looking like new
by regular dry dust mopping and an occasional wet mop cleaning with a neutral
pH cleaner. Colors will not fade, and finishes don’t chip, stain or peel.
Decorative concrete floors don’t harbor dust mites or other
allergens, and are moisture resistant so they prevent the growth of mold or
bacteria so your home stays cleaner and safer, especially important for those suffering
from allergies or asthma.
Interior floors can look like polished marble, real stone,
tile, wood plank, brick, slate, Flagstone and much more. You have practically unlimited
design potential with our realistic stamp patterns, custom hand-cut and colored
overlays and the wide range of acid-based chemical and water-based acrylic stains
for stunning effects. Check out these interior floors:
- This kitchen has a stamped concrete,
multi-colored real stone pattern.
- A basement converted for entertaining has a
concrete floor that will resist spills and withstand the craziest dance
- This resurfaced concrete
wood plank floor gives a rustic feel to this room, ready to host a dining
table, living room furniture or family room fun.
- A modern bathroom with a trending turquoise color
stained floor shines like expensive marble, at a fraction of the cost.
Outdoor spaces were made for
Upgrading your outdoor spaces adds substantial value as well as coveted
“curb appeal” to your home. A broken front step or cracked threshold at the entry to your home makes
it look old and worn, plus it could become a safety hazard. A resurfaced
concrete walkway and porch or stoop would make your home look newer, literally
covering up years of wear with beautiful design, like this authentic looking random
stone walkway and porch.
Stained or chipped concrete
patios and pool decks can revive with new life from decorative concrete,
whether stained, stamped or resurfaced concrete. You can accomplish a whole new
look with exciting colors and textures to make your backyard inviting again.
This pool deck went from dull gray to delightful, replicating the warm stone colors
in the surrounding hardscapes, creating a harmonious setting.

value with innovative decorative concrete both inside and out. Whatever outdoor
