Fixtures can add beauty, value and convenience to your home!


Little things do count -- sometimes a lot! Adding or replacing some of your home's fixtures -- which will stay with it when you eventually sell -- can give your home an attractive up-to-date look, more functionality and a higher market value. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Distinctive exterior light fixtures, perhaps with motion sensors or timers. Think about floodlights and path lights, too!
  • A new mailbox and address plate.
  • A new water hose holder or winder.
  • A beautiful sounding doorbell.
  • A polished brass door plate, door knocker or handle-and-lock set for your front door.
  • New knobs or levered handles for interior doors.
  • Up-to-date interior light fixtures -- chandeliers, sconces, ceiling globes, under-cabinet lights in the kitchen, etc.
  • Fresh faceplates for wall outlets and light switches (especially replacing the painted-over ones!)
  • Decorative curtain and drapery fixtures and rods.
  • Attractive kitchen and bathroom drawer pulls and cupboard handles.
  • Shiny new water taps and faucets for sinks, tubs and showers.
  • New towel racks (why not towels too?).
  • Quieter bathroom exhaust fans.
  • A sturdy, unstained laundry tub.
  • A pegboard and clips for hanging tools in the garage or work room.
