Homeowners invest a lot of time and money into decorating the interior of their home. Not only does it add value, but it also serves as a reflection of personal style and tastes. Just as important as the interior, however, is the exterior of one’s home. Curb appeal is not to be underestimated—in terms of functionality, resale value, and aesthetic appeal. The following building materials are options you should consider when building your dream home.

Wine Cellars: A vintage improvement to your home

By Charles Richardson

Over the past few years a growing trend with homeowners has been to add luxury features to an existing home design: exotic bathroom spas, fire pits by the swimming pool, and outdoor kitchens, to name a few. One of the more popular enhancements has been the addition of a wine cellar. According to The Realty Times, the popularity of wine cellars can be traced, logically enough, to a growing connoisseur mindset among homeowners to collect and store wine. Aside from personal affinity, the appeal of adding a wine room or cellar to one’s home is two-fold: 1) it evokes an upscale, stylish ambiance that is attractive to friends and guests, and 2) it significantly increases the value of your home.
