Check out a few exclusive tips from Matt for your home – inside and out:

Everyone has that itch to splurge every once in a while, but what should you spend it on? Matt suggests you spend it on high-end kitchen cabinets. They take the most abuse out of any other cabinet in the house, so you want to make sure they can handle it.

On the contrary, what if you don’t want to spend loads of money, but would like a improve your landscape or garden? A simple, cheap tip is to take a sample of soil to the local garden center and have them test the PH of your soil. The greenest, most lush landscape could be yours by simply adjusting the PH of your soil that’s just right for your garden.

Something that is not so simple is installing your own pavers in the backyard. Tip from Matt – hire professionals! Many people don’t realize just how much work goes on underneath those pavers beforehand to make them look the way you would like them to.
