Moving Tips: Take remodeling tips from the White House

The White House may give you some remodeling and decorating ideas.

The White House may give you some remodeling and decorating ideas.

As the presidential election nears, you may be thinking about the White House and other government facilities more frequently. If your belongings that you gave to your moving company aren't enough to beautify the new home the way your want, you may want to look at ways the White House uses decorations on its exterior and interior.

If you have a large home, it may be a good idea to take some tips from the White House's interior decorations. The building has many famous portraits and other paintings, and this type of decoration may be of interest to you and your family. There are many replicas of famous paintings available, and these could be good additions to your home. Original paintings that interest you could also be a good investment, as well.

The interior also has intricate carpeting throughout many rooms, which may help you decide if you want a fancier carpeting option that fits your home. Also, the Oval Office, the president's main work area, may help you get ideas for an office area of your own. This could be great if there is a spare room in the home.

Many exterior options possible
You may benefit from the many ideas around the outside of the White House, as there are many options to improve the home in this fashion. While the building is next to elaborate gardens, your home doesn't have to go over the top that much. Actually, you may benefit from having smaller gardens, but multiple ones.

Whether you adorn your entryway with flowers or other vegetation, the decision is up to you. It may be a good idea to create a flower bed in your yard. This will give your home's exterior some color, and it could be a good way to ensure your lawn has some contrast. If you prefer growing vegetables over buying them, it is not a bad choice to make a vegetable garden. However, you should only create as much as you can keep up with. Creating many gardens, or just a large one, will end up costing you more money as it fails if you cannot take care of it.

Owning a home involves a lot of responsibility, but there can be some very high rewards if you put the time into it.
