Giving a little extra attention to design can go a long way toward meeting those goals in cost-effective and eye-catching fashion.

But we can, for example, move around interior walls to create rooms that work for today’s lifestyles, rip out carpeting that’s covering beautiful hardwood, patch and paint the walls for a major refresh and, if we happen to still encounter any in 2019, peel off aging psychedelic wallpaper.
