One of the most treasured aspects of home ownership (second only to the financial advantages over renting) is the ability one has to make their abode uniquely their own. Once you own a home, you can remodel the kitchen, replace the flooring, create your dream spa bathroom, update the landscaping, and of course, paint your home’s interior in absolutely any way you please.
