3 modern bathroom updates for Keller homeowners

Modern Home


We tend to think of the bathroom as a utilitarian space, and therefore not worthy of the same energy and expense put into designing spaces like the living room or kitchen. We spend a lot of time in the bathroom, however. It’s the room where we start and set intentions for our day. In the evening, the bathroom is where we go to unwind — some people prefer soaking in a bubble bath while others take a hot shower to relax.

A bathroom's design can dramatically affect your experience and Keller home's resale value. Consider improving your daily ritual with these three upgrading tips.

Bring technology into the bathroom

Technology plays a big role in most people's lives, so it’s no surprise that it has started to pop up in bathroom designs, too. Consider how technology can simplify your daily routine. For example, defogging technology built into the vanity mirror allows one person to shower while another is using the mirror. If you have products that need to be charged, like an electric toothbrush or razor, consider installing USB ports inside the medicine cabinet to ensure your go-to items are always ready to use.

Technology can bring entertainment into the bathroom as well. If you like to start off the day with some energetic music or unwind in the bath listening to your favorite podcast, Bluetooth technology can be the perfect way to add entertainment without sacrificing counter space.

Design with ergonomics in mind

Ergonomics is the process of designing and arranging spaces so they fit with the people who use them. When making upgrades to your bathroom, it’s important to think through how you use the space each day. What a functional design might look like to someone else could be inconvenient for you.

Bathroom storage tends to be treated as one-size-fits-all. Many bathrooms have a vanity that contains deep cabinets. People with this basic storage solution are forced to use small containers to organize their products and often must rummage through belongings to get what they need.

An ergonomic bathroom is designed to keep frequently used items accessible. Consider adding a medicine cabinet to your bathroom to keep smaller products that get easily misplaced on hand. A vanity that offers a top drawer allows you to store everyday items, like a hair brush or toothpaste, up higher than a storage cabinet would, meaning you wouldn’t have to bend down as often.

Find the best solutions through personalized designs

The way that your bathroom is set up and how you use your bathroom are unique. It’s often difficult to find an off-the-shelf solution that gives you exactly what you want from this space. Consider a solution instead that is customizable to your needs. Whether you’re working with a difficult bathroom layout or feel limited by space constraints, modular designs help ensure can meet your storage needs.

Dispelling myths about Keller home warranty plans

Homeonwer discusses warranty

If you’re considering a warranty plan on your Keller home, you are probably doing your due diligence — as you should — on how they work, who the different providers are and what to expect from the experience. This article is meant to help you understand home warranty plans, as well as separate fact from fiction.

Go the extra mile to protect your home

Myth: “I don’t need a home warranty plan because I have home insurance.”

Investing money, time and love into a place to call home can be scary, especially knowing that things don’t always go as planned. You may have homeowners insurance to protect your home against unexpected disasters, but these plans typically don’t cover the issues that come with the everyday wear-and-tear your home systems and appliances go through. The reality is that unexpected breakdowns will happen, and they can be costly.

Trusted connections and expert service

Myth: “It’s hard to know who you can trust these days, and I need someone who knows what they’re doing and is looking out for me.”

When an appliance or home system needs repairing, choosing the right person to bring into your home can be a daunting task. Lean on your realtor to find trusted and reputable service workers in the DFW Metroplex. Reputations can be verified easily online by checking for reviews on Google My Business, Facebook, and Yelp. Simply type the company's name into Google and their business information (including reviews) should appear on the results. If they don't have any reviews, consider it a red flag.

Smart budget protection

Myth: “I’m already saving for unexpected breakdowns, so I don’t need extra coverage.”

Many home warranty plans offer varying coverage levels so that homeowners can choose the level of protection that’s right for their individual home and budget needs. Considering that 58% of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings, an unexpected repair cost could cause serious financial strain. With most plans, customers pay a predetermined service fee to diagnose and repair a covered item, but there can be non-covered expenses such as permit and disposal costs, refrigerant, necessary code upgrades and more.

Home warranties can help save Keller homeowners from many of the headaches that come with owning a home. The plans are growing in popularity as more and more consumers take advantage of the convenient access to professional service contractors, valuable budget protection, and now, the additional services that providers offer.

How Keller homeowners should choose plants for the summer garden

Garden Spray

Whether you’re new to gardening or have a green thumb, summer is the perfect season to start your own garden. Now is the time to start thinking of all the possibilities the warm weather brings!

The initial task to get your summer garden going is to list which plants lift your mood and what you'll enjoy this summer. A garden can very much be an aesthetic enhancer of your entire Keller home.

The Gilmour Planting Map can also help you determine what to plant based on your zone. If you’re not sure where to start, consider these ideas to inspire your summer garden.

Garden like a chef
From fresh herbs like sage and basil to easy-to-grow kitchen staples like carrots and tomatoes, there’s nothing like growing your own food. With an edible garden, the possibilities are endless to take you from garden to table throughout the season.

Vegetables like lettuces, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, celery and asparagus are all great seasonal options. Some are even companion plants, so planting them near one another can increase plant health, optimize soil, prevent weeds and more. However, these veggies are "thirstier" than others, so make sure you have the proper watering tools for them to grow successfully. 

Plant for visual beauty
If you’re more interested in looking at your garden than eating it, consider planting your favorite colors. Choose flowers that look gorgeous outdoors and indoors as vibrant and colorful bouquets. Cosmos are a great seasonal choice and range in colors from shades of white, yellow and tangerine to pink and magenta. Another bountiful option is the Clematis, which bloom all summer long in shades of lavender, pink and purple.

If you’re looking for shade or a little privacy for your yard, Hollyhocks are another great option, as they grow up to six feet tall.Flowers tend to spread quickly, so using a sprinkler to water them makes gardening a lot easier. 

Attract pollinators
There are many options that will bring beautiful pollinators to your garden as well. Honeysuckles are a magnet for butterflies, hummingbirds and bees because of their sweet scent. Easy to grow, Honeysuckles simply require full sun and generous watering. Milkweed and nectar-rich flowers such as Asters are other great options that attract monarch butterflies.

To attract pollinators all season long, make sure your hose is up for the job. Choose something that is durable and will hold up season after season. super duty hoses designed to resist kinks will allow you to be able to weave around your landscape to water all your flowers with ease. No matter what your gardening goals are this season, if you choose to plant what you love, you can’t go wrong.

5 ways fight spring allergies in your Keller home

Woman Checks Home Appliance

Spring is not only a time for renewal around the house, but also for battling pesky allergies. While you can’t stop allergies from happening each spring, there are easy ways to reduce their effects in your Keller home.

Here are 5 ways to fight back:

1. Fight back with asthma and allergy-friendly appliances
Turning your home into an allergy-fighting fortress is key this spring. Look for laundry appliances and air purifier solutions by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). They not only reduce the impact of allergies in your home, but also provide a sleek new look for your spring home refresh.

2. Replace your old throw pillows
If you haven’t done this recently, it’s a good rule of thumb to replace your pillows every two years to keep allergies at bay. Swapping old pillows for new 100% cotton ones are the easiest way to give your living room and bedroom a fresh boost of color and pattern, while also reducing dust and other allergens lurking in old pillows.

3. New bedding
Although you may not see them, your bedding is covered in allergens like dust and pet dander. An easy fix to spruce up your bedroom is through replacing old comforters, blankets and sheets with asthma and allergy friendly solutions. Get rid of the synthetic fabrics, as they can be allergy irritants. Natural fabrics are more asthma and allergy friendly.

4. Replace real flowers with artificial flowers
Although they are beautiful, real flowers can be a mighty allergy instigator. Not to mention they die quickly and smell up the house when they rot. Consider artificial flowers. They will add the pop you look for out of spring colors without bothering the air. They also last much longer.

5. Swap out rugs
Your choice of rug can be the leading cause of your sneezing fits. The materials used to manufacture rugs can sometimes cause an allergic reaction as well as volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). The presence of a dog or cat in your home can also aggravate your allergies. When it comes to rugs, your rug ends up collecting pet dander. This dander can also collect pollen and dust, which can all worsen allergies. It is recommended to invest in a vacuum cleaner with a built-in HEPA filter, and to vacuum thoroughly one to two times a week. Also flip area rugs over and vacuum on the back as well as the front. Swap out your current rug for allergy-friendly fibers like sisal, jute, wool or polypropylene.

Following these steps may not cure your allergies altogether, but they will definitely help you breathe easier this spring, and year-round. Making these changes will also give you opportunities to refresh your decor, brightening up the look and feel of your Keller home

New ways HOAs communicate with Keller residents

Keller Homeowner Checks HOA Website

Without thoughtful communication, relationships between board members, residents and property managers of community associations can go from smooth to contentious in a hurry. From single-family communities to high-rise condos, everyone has their own ideas about what’s best for their Keller neighborhood. But despite what most headlines will have you believe, the reality is that homeowner satisfaction in managed communities and HOAs is reported to be at an all-time high. Embracing the right communication style to connect with their community is a key reason.

Savvy HOA boards customize their communications to residents' ages and lifestyles. By identifying trends within communities, HOA boards and property managers are employing more effective tactics to convey important information, make decisions and even defuse tension.

Sharing in bits and bytes: Millennial messaging
For example, younger generations are more receptive to messages delivered through digital media, online platforms and mobile apps. In high-rise communities where millennials are prevalent, association boards are using these channels to connect with tech-savvy residents. Apart from distributing important building information, board members are also able to get better buy-in and feedback on community initiatives. The use of digital media lives up to its name, as previously hard-to-reach residents are now being brought into the fold to create richer living experiences and more representative communities.

On-demand communication tools engage working families
Single-family or master-planned communities are home to more established residents, mainly working professionals and families. They tend to prefer email or texting over in-person meetings, with the added option to source information themselves. The community management industry is responding with innovative tools that allow these self-directed individuals to engage on their own terms.

One of the biggest markers of progress in the industry is the increasing adoption of online resident portals. FirstService Residential Connect is an online property management platform that allows residents and boards to communicate directly with one another and the community manager without being disruptive.

Residents can check account balances, reserve amenities, manage visitor access and track package deliveries. Online property management platforms also enhance board members' ability to spot and respond to operational needs and make improvements while reducing costs and delivering added value to their community, which ultimately leads to increased resident satisfaction and support.

Traditional communication still important
There is no denying that growing numbers of mature residents are “plugged in” and finding their voice in the digital age. Nevertheless, more traditional forms of communication, including emails, physical mail and in-person consultations, are still preferred by this generation.

While face-to-face conversations are welcome, they can open the door to confrontations just as easily. Understanding this, community board members, with the assistance of property managers, are increasingly employing personalized communications techniques to navigate difficult personalities in the face of such interactions.

For instance, summarizing a complaint in writing after a resident airs grievances can help them feel heard. Laying out the logic behind a decision can help residents feel more comfortable with the process, even if they don’t like the decision. These small changes are much more effective in managing relationships than simply saying, “Thanks for your comment.”

As HOA boards focus on these kinds of interpersonal tactics, they’ve seen fewer disgruntled residents and more small issues remain small issues. The key is to communicate directly, plainly and sincerely.

Becoming an interpreter
Forward-thinking HOA board members and community managers say effective communication is all about speaking the same language as their residents. That means delivering messages in a way they’ll respond to and be comfortable with. By mirroring preferred communication channels, association boards and residential managers are changing the game to give everyone a voice and create stronger Keller communities.

5 strategies to beat the Texas heat this summer

When the temperatures start going up, so do your energy bills. If you’re looking for ways to save energy and keep your Keller home cooler at the same time, there are a number of strategies you can use that will save you money and make you and your family more comfortable all summer long.

Keller Home Interior

1. Get smart about air conditioning
Cool your home using the latest smart technology. Smart windows and portable room air conditioners are great options to beat the summer heat, as they deliver up to 40% more energy efficiency than the minimum Energy Star requirement. Unlike traditional room air conditioners that turn on full blast and then shut off completely to cool a room, new technology adjusts its speed constantly to maintain desired temperature levels — saving energy and reducing your energy bill. They have options for just about any room size, from those that can cool an area up to 800 square feet, to window units like the that cool areas from 800 to 1,300 square feet.

The technology also works with the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can change your air conditioner settings with voice commands at home.

2. Block the sun
It may seem obvious, but the heat of the sun each day is what can make rooms in your house unbearably hot. Take a look at the window treatments you currently have, starting with the ones that see the most sunlight during the day. Using effective blinds, shades, shutters or curtains can help shield especially south-facing rooms from getting overly hot. Likewise, smart landscaping outside those windows can also help. Consider planting trees and shrubs strategically in your yard to help shade your home, which can also help shelter your house from harsh winter winds. Effective planting can be a great long-term aid in keeping your home cooler. A good landscaping consultant may be able to help you develop a plan.

3. Keep hot air out, cool air in
Just as you want to keep out cold air in the winter, it's a good idea to check all your windows, doors and insulation for their ability to keep hot air out and cooled air in. Replacing old, leaky windows or using caulk to seal up drafty spots can be a very effective energy saver in the summer as well as the winter. A professional energy audit conducted by your energy company can help you find leaks that may add up to a lot of wasted energy. Then you can develop a plan to replace or repair any windows, doors or areas of insulation where you are losing the most cooled air in the summer.

4. Turn off what you’re not using
You’d be amazed how much energy you can save just by consistently turning off all the lights and other electronics when they are not being used. It's also a good idea to replace your old lightbulbs — which produce heat — with LED bulbs, which are both cooler and use less power.

5. Use appliances strategically
Avoid heating up the entire house by not using your oven on hot days. Instead, cook with your microwave, on the stovetop, using a toaster oven or grilling food outdoors. Run the large appliances such as your clothes washer, dryer and dishwasher during off-peak hours, like during the evening.

All of these approaches can help Keller homeowners save tons of energy as well as money, and will keep you and your family cooler throughout the summer.

Smart home upgrades for Keller homeowners


These days, home upgrades are increasingly focused on one key feature: connectivity. In 2019, buyers want smart homes they can easily control from anywhere. From smart HVAC and sprinkler systems to connected garage door openers, it’s all about creating convenience and comfort.

Here are four examples of smart home improvements that add value for Keller homeowners:

1) Fully connected security systems
Security systems are nothing new, but the technology used to arm those systems is changing rapidly. Home security companies now offer fully connected systems that allow users to protect and monitor their homes from any smart device. Whether it’s a live video feed, the ability to lock and unlock doors remotely or just checking that all sensors are working properly, integrated security systems offer peace of mind. Having the infrastructure in place can be a selling point for buyers who want to make sure their new home is as safe as possible, given they’ll only have to set up the monitoring subscription upon move-in.

2) Smart garages for convenience and safety
According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2019 Cost vs. Value survey, a garage door replacement is the number one home improvement project in terms of return on investment. But homeowners are taking it a step further and installing new technology to make the garage more user friendly. For example, the connect garage door openers include technology built in to improve convenience and functionality. 

Not only is the opener quiet — ideal for attached garages — but the connectivity features allow you to check whether your garage door is open or closed, grant individual access with virtual keys, instantly know when someone is operating your garage door (authorized or not), and provide a log of when each opener was used — all from your phone or smart device. You can open the garage door remotely for delivery people, a housekeeper or for your child coming home from school. Considering your garage is one of the most accessed points in your home, this is a useful security feature and proves that garages offer more than just storage space. With the right connectivity tools and features, they can provide convenience that will be attractive to future owners.

3) Smart thermostats save energy, increase comfort
As home improvement trends go, increased connectivity is rivaled only by the desire for more energy-efficient homes. Smart thermostats accomplish both these aims and can increase the value of your home in the process. Smart thermostats let you easily control the temperature in your home from any connected device. You can set a daily schedule for your heater, adjust the temperature in individual rooms or let the system program itself based on your usage history. For energy-conscious buyers, this kind of technology provides a way of living that’s as aspirational as it is attainable.

4) Programmable lighting is a must-have
Smart lighting has turned from a novelty to a practical tool as products have gotten more advanced. Programmable lighting allows you to schedule when your lights will come on, turn lights on and off remotely, or change the lighting to improve aesthetics. With a smart lighting system, you’ll never have to get out of bed to turn the lights off downstairs, and you can always come home to a fully lit house, boosting your sense of security. With these kinds of applications, your home’s lighting can go from a ‘given’ to a must-have, attracting buyers like a moth to a flame.

New, smart products are hitting the market every day. For Keller homeowners savvy enough to incorporate this technology into their homes, they’ll not only be more connected, but they’ll likely see more offers rolling in when it comes time to sell.

How Keller homeowners save money with roof replacement

Roof Overview

Replacing an aging or damaged roof is an important step in providing crucial protection from the damage the elements can dish out — from heat, wind and rain, to snow, sleet and hail. But Keller homeowners may not realize that the type of roof shingle they choose can make a big difference, not only in the protection it offers to the home, but also in the cost of their homeowners’ insurance.

Here are a few things homeowners should keep in mind when looking to save money with a new roof.

Roof replacement can save money
Even though it’s initially costly, homeowners in Texas can actually save money by installing a new roof, as long as they choose the right shingle.

For years, insurance carriers have been incentivizing homeowners to install shingles that are rated for impact resistance in an effort to reduce the number of roof claims. As a result, using qualifying impact-resistant roofing products may qualify for significant premium discounts on homeowners’ insurance.

The nudge toward impact-rated shingles (sometimes called “IR” shingles) is increasing. Recently, some municipalities in Colorado went as far as mandating UL 2218 Class 4 Impact Resistance classification for all new roofs, a trend that’s anticipated to continue growing into other severe-weather states (Texas is known for hail.)

The type of shingles you use matters
Most major shingle brands now have a UL 2218 Class 4 Impact Resistance classified shingle available, but the way the shingles are reinforced differs widely. The newest IR asphalt shingle on the market reinforces the entire back of the shingle with a strong polyester fabric. Other methods used to reinforce IR shingles include using fabric over just portions of the shingle or coating the shingle with another substance.

While they are distinctly different than traditional shingles because of their reinforcement, these UL 2218 classified options still offer the pleasing aesthetics homeowners have come to expect from modern asphalt shingles. Heritage IR features the same naturally-deep shadow lines that portray the look of wood shakes, and they are available in some of the company’s most popular color choices.

Check with your insurance carrier
Many major insurance providers offer premium discounts for UL 2218 Class 4 classified shingles, but the percentage of savings and the areas of the country where the discount applies vary by insurance carrier. Homeowners should check with their insurance carrier online to see a list of pre-approved shingles and regions, and check with their local agent for a quote of the premium discount for their specific home. Boyd with Academy Roofing said that he’s seen premium discounts close to 30 percent in Colorado for Class 4-rated products.

Learning about the newest and most effective shingles on the market can help save money and worry, both by protecting the home from the top down and potentially reducing insurance costs. Keller Homeowners contacting their insurance carrier and getting educated about roofing options can help them make a smart choice for both their homes and their wallets.

Spring refresh tips for Keller homeowners

Homeowner With Flowers

Every spring, the changing season brings a desire for renewal. It’s a time of growth, transition and revitalization. The latest trend in home cleaning reveals what many of us yearn for — not just decluttering, but a fresh start, a clean slate. We dream of an open, airy, bright home where everyone can thrive and be their best selves. But how do we get there, when our houses are filled with stuff — not to mention the accumulated dust and stale air of winter?

Here are three ways you can re-energize your Keller home and yourself this spring.

Take a tour of your home
Whether mentally or literally, tour your home with a notebook or tablet and jot down the areas causing you the most tension or stress when you look at them. Is it the laundry pile that never seems to go away in the bedroom? The kitchen cabinet that’s so overstuffed that something falls out every time you open it?

Prioritize the ones that bother you the most. Take a good look at each problem and prepare for a radical declutter.

Maybe the laundry pile exists because your closets and dresser drawers are overfull. When was the last time you assessed your pajamas or jeans collection? As recommended by the Kondo technique, take out the entire contents of the pajama drawer, hold and look at each item. Which ones do you really love to wear? You'll be able to fit them back in your drawer more neatly when you have fewer items. For the others, if you don’t love them, it’s time to let them go. If you would love them “if only” they didn’t have a button missing, but you haven't had the interest in replacing the button in over a year, it’s time to move on.

Same thing with your kitchen cabinet — take out all the pots and pans and examine which ones are taking up space, but you never use. For items you only use once a year, like a roasting pan big enough for a turkey, store them elsewhere.

Do the deep clean

Once you’ve tackled a couple of the biggest trouble spots, you’ll start to feel lighter and less stressed every time you enter that room or area of the house. You can now accomplish the cleaning and dusting under and around the problem area that you couldn’t manage before.

For each area you declutter, clean thoroughly before putting back the items you're keeping. If it's a drawer, wipe out the dust and grime and make sure it's dry before replacing items. For a closet or room in the house, dust and wipe down from top to bottom, removing dirt from ceiling to floor.

Refresh your rooms

Typical cleaning products won’t have the desired effect of leaving your room not only looking good, but smelling and feeling good every time you enter it.

Take the time to clear, refresh and revive your space and your mind with aromatherapy. Using essential oils will result in not only refreshing the entire environment of your Keller home, but will invigorate and energize your spirit. Spring cleaning gives you the chance for renewal — and inspires a sense of new purpose as you enjoy the changing season. Let your home become a vital part of your re-energized attitude this spring.

Infusing natural elements for distinctive design

3-31

Natural materials add notes of strength and serenity to a space, while simultaneously revitalizing the overall aesthetic. These elements not only represent the distinct beauty found in nature, but also can serve as unique statement pieces that bring handcrafted modernity into your Keller home. From furnishings to fixtures, designers incorporate natural materials to create a soothing, yet energized aesthetic that creates a sense of intrinsic luxury.

Organic elements
Exploring natural materials can introduce a sense of refined serenity into interior design. From room to room, include elements inspired by nature, such as a concrete fixture or bluegrass wall coverings, for a rich, organic feel. From incorporating custom woodworking in the foyer with detailed pieces carved from exotic wood, or making a statement in the entryway with a lustrous agate console, channel both the simplistic and complex energy found in nature through distinct materials.

Compositional distinction
The addition of natural materials brings inherent compositional variations to a space, from a hand-carved soapstone chair to a side table crafted from driftwood. An infusion of pure charcoal provides a signature hue, while the hand-poured concrete gives each faucet a unique texture, color and style. Juxtapose the faucet with a polished granite sink, or mounted wooden shelving, to accentuate the strength of nature.

Living accents
Channel natural beauty by hanging a chandelier made of iron and rock crystal in the dining room, adding a stunning focal point that reflects and refracts light throughout the space. Accent a window-scape with succulent terrariums to awaken the living space, or select a metal planter with a sculptural bonsai or jasmine vine to incorporate botanic texture and elegance. The thoughtful utilization of lighting and greenery will help create a personal oasis within your Keller home, adding natural art to an existing design.

Natural variations
Create a cohesive environment using classic, yet organic tones, exploring blends of warm taupe, gray-blue and forest green to enhance the overall aesthetic with an innately natural aura. Layer in unique elements inspired by nature, such as textured linen wallpaper or a sleek marble fireplace hearth, to round out a holistic, yet upscale approach to interior design. For a finishing touch, light a lemongrass beeswax candle, infusing the space with energizing aromatherapy.
