Complete Fencing Solutions since 1964

July Home News

It’s been a busy week for home news and Taylor Fencing always sits up and takes notice. There’s a reason (okay, many) that we’re so well-known in the home renovation industry, and it goes far beyond our premium, custom fencing solutions for every property. It leans into our commitment to customer service, which we find absolutely paramount, so that you feel fully supported through every step of the journey. It also leans into a continued desire to learn, as you’ll see on a regular basis on this blog. Fences are one thing – a very important thing, but as we continue to share on the blog, they’re one piece of the puzzle of your perfect property. So, continue to check back in to the Taylor Fencing blog, as you’ll always find extensive nuggets about landscaping, home construction and even interior design. And today, that means yet another instalment of home news. Read on for more information.

Balancing Parenting and Working from Home

Here’s a topic that we don’t cover very frequently – how to balance it all! There’s no doubt that when you decide to make improvements to your home, or even purchase a home at all, you’re going to give a few things up. At least, that’s the assumption, but it doesn’t always need to be the case. One of the largest audiences of those that want to embark on home adventures but don’t – is parents. Kids are a full-time job, no matter what anyone else tells you, and we want you to celebrate that. We also want you to experience the joy and fulfillment that comes with a home renovation and that’s why this article is for you. It talks about balancing both – and does so, very successfully.

Buying Home by Candlelight

Next up is another topic and tough question, that’s very important for our readers to explore. Are you seeing your home by daylight? For some, this may seem silly – why wouldn’t you be looking at homes by the light of day. For others – especially with busy schedules – home viewings have to take place by night. In fact, it’s a far greater number than you may think. This can have great implications to how you actually view the home, and some make snap judgements (and regret them later). That’s why more and more companies are taking the initiative and encouraging potential homebuyers to “own” their properties over a longer period of time – a trial if you will. That way, you can see your home in every sort of light, at every time of day, and test out all of the different amenities that it offers. Check out this link for more information.

3 Ways to Add Value and Appeal to Your Home

We’re always remiss if we veer too far from landscaping, since the Taylor Fencing products are an integral part to any outdoor scheme. So, every month, we aim to find a unique article on the World Wide Web, that can help you becomes as enthusiastic as possible about the great outdoors. It can be stressful, and it does require upkeep,  but as Bryan Nazor – who is a title and real estate closing expert says, “Landscaping is a key to your home’s “curb appeal” and summer landscaping changes can be an excellent tool to add value to your home.” We’ve got a while to go until summer hits, but it’s never too early to prepare. While too much landscaping can be overwhelming, think about tips like edging and mulch, building features in the yard and year-long plants and flowers. Beyond your curb appeal, you’ll appreciate your property and want to spend as much time outside as possible. Check out this link for more information.

Some West Virginia Schools Plant Edible Landscaping

Here’s another fun story when it comes to landscaping – did you know that edible landscaping is seeing an uptick as a trend. This story sure believes so. Health educators and a growing desire for nutrition-based school degrees agree that you can learn this knowledge best in the field – pun intended. The benefits are plentiful (again, pun intended); You’re learning how to be healthy, you’re teaching others, and you’re spending time in the great outdoors. We will always be enthusiastic about this, since we spend so much time installing the fence installations that are the first thing you see when you arrive and the last thing you see when you leave your home.

Generation-Balanced Interior Design

Let’s move inside. Like we said, we love every element of your dream home, and what we love most is sharing our enthusiasm with you. The Information Age bears both pros and cons, but one of the more interesting elements is looking at the different ways that different ages handle home ownership and design. This article zeroes right in on this – specifically the generational gap in the way that we do interior design. While Taylor Fencing does much of its business with personal homes, we also frequently work with businesses and are well-versed in the products that will make the most sense. As this article eloquently points out, many businesses work with a whole range of clientele and frequently, they’re not the same age. That’s a great win to have, and it’s also a great opportunity to adjust your vision, so that you speak to the broadest audience possible. It’s a win-win, really. Record-Bee shares, “All systems are involved – color, light, sound, comfort, convenience and flexibility – and come into play.  Certain color treatments that youth finds exciting and “up-beat,” for instance, might be read by older age groups as too harsh!   The restful, mellow, softer hues and tones enjoyed by elders could be seen by youth as nothing but b-o-r-i-n-g – I’m outta here!   The typical lighting and sound systems that go with each of those contrasts might be doubly offensive to its opposite.” Who knew, right?
