5 Ways to Make Your Home Feel Loved
It’s almost Valentines Day! Hopefully you’re spending it with friends and loved ones (Or maybe you’re going to the giant DMSC Masquerade Ball?).

Energy film is an inexpensive and easy way to make the home or office more energy efficient while providing UV protection. It is easy to apply and uses no adhesives.
3. Add marbles to the holes in your big fences. They say fences make good neighbors, but I think fanciful fences make GREAT neighbors.
4.Add Crown Molding to the switch plates. I’ve written about this before but I think it’s such a great way to dress up your home a little bit without spending a ton of money.
5. Add a personal touch. People who come into your home invariably make decisions about you based on what they see. Why not personalize it and let your home be about who you are, what you stand for, and a touch of your personality?
