Gardening season is finally upon us. As winter finally rolls to an end, our REALTORS® are already busy gathering gardening supplies and preparing for the warm weather.

Minimalist decor has been a trend for quite a while because of its clean lines, simple design, and neutral colors that appeal to almost everyone. Other people appreciate the ultra-organized, clutter-free approach minimalist style entails. For these reasons, minimalist decor is the perfect style to adopt when you're trying to sell your home. It's also good if you've just moved into a new home since you can probably spend less time and money on furniture and decorating. But how do you use minimalist decor in Bronxville homes for sale while still having enough personality and appeal? Our REALTORS® offer these tips to make the most of minimalist decor in your home.

However, choosing the right rug isn't always an easy process. Furthermore, rugs can be expensive, so you'll want to pick one you can live with for many years.

Who doesn't love eating outdoors? With an outdoor kitchen, you can spend your summer cooking, eating, and relaxing outside while maximizing your vitamin D intake.
Not only can outdoor kitchens can make for a great family gathering space, they can significantly increase your overall home value as well. With so many people spending more time at home, it's no wonder outdoor kitchens have become an increasingly popular project in 2020.
However, building a luxury outdoor kitchen is an expensive home renovation project. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, the typical cost of an outdoor kitchen is $13,000, and 22% of homeowners invest in high-end kitchens that cost upwards of $30,000. With such a large investment, it's important to do things right. Our REALTORS® have provided the following tips to help ensure your luxury outdoor kitchen doesn't fall short.
