During this economic recession, many people are choosing to add value to their home rather than building a new one. When thinking of remodeling, some of the first areas that come to mind are mostly inside the home. New countertops and cabinets in the kitchen. Updating the bathroom. Finishing the basement. Even a simple paint job can work wonders.
