Buying a home is time consuming in itself. Here at Keystone Custom Homes we want to take as much stress off of you as possible. The next step to buying your home is decorating it. Now, before the stress starts to build up, let us help you reduce some of that stress by providing you some paint color combinations that would look perfect in your home.
• Pale Blue, Dark Gray & Light Gray – This color combination provides a stormy look that is calmed down by the pale blue. The darker tones give the room an elegant feel, while the pale blue brings light to the room. This color pallet screams sophistication and grace.
• Gray & Mahogany – This beautiful color combination provides an earth against the sky look. It is great for rooms with dark wood furniture. Having a Parma Gray, gives a soft soothing blue look that feels like the sky. Then, adding the chocolate brown for contrast gives the room a more complete appearance, and ties in everything with your dark wood furniture.
• Moss Green, Petal Pink & Olive – This color pallet gives your home a more natural look. If you are into the old fashioned, yet still elegant look, this color pallet is for you. The Moss Green provides a rich nature look, while the Petal Pink brings light to the room.
• Aubergine & Gray-Green – We recommend using this color combination in a study, library or powder room. Having the Aubergine on the walls gives the room a sense of deep space. The tone of the color is rich and paired with a citron gray-green for the trim lightens up the room just enough for it to give you the feel and look you want.
• Bleached Linen & Cranberry – This combination offers a perfect colors for your bedroom. It allows elegance to your room, while still providing the color that you want. This combination creates a cozy and intimate effect in the bedroom. Using the Cranberry on one wall and the ceiling creates a cohesive look with the Bleached Linen.
These are just five of many color pallet options out there. We wanted to give options to many different types of styles, because we know everyone is going to make their home their own.

Preparing to move into a new home is an exciting time. It gives you an opportunity to make your new living space all your own. Before you move, however, there is the daunting task of selling your old home. Selling your old home can be stressful, especially if it is your first time doing it. This blog will help you find ways to making selling your old home easy. Before you know it, you’ll be preparing for your brand new home.
Pricing your home is crucial when entering the housing market. Setting the value of your home too high or low can destroy the chances of selling your home and making a profit off of it. If it is set too low, you leave money behind, and if it is set too high, there will be fewer buyers. Often times, sellers will attempt to sell their homes without the help of a real estate agent. Real estate agents know the local market like the back of their hands. They will review comparable sales to help make sure you set a realistic price that will sell in a reasonable amount of time. Realtors have it in their best interest to price your homes perfectly for the housing market. Read the rest of this entry »
Fall is one of the best times of the year! The leaves look amazing, the weather begins to cool, the air becomes crisp and pumpkins invade everything from coffee and desserts to breakfast items. Yes, fall can be fun and refreshing, but it can also take a toll on your home. Keep your home well maintained with these general maintenance tips:
The Roof. Homeowners tend to forget about roofs because they only need updating about once in a home’s life. However, experts recommend a visual inspection of your roof to ensure there are no visible cracks, missing shingles or other imperfections that may leave a roof vulnerable to changing weather.
The Gutters. Gutters are another rather important part of the overall health of a home, and there are few people who enjoy dealing with them. Homeowners can save lots of time and hassle by getting on a ladder and clearing out the gutters of leaves, dirt and other obstructions. This will provide a clear path for rainwater to drain properly and keep it from spilling over the sides and leaking into the foundation of the home. Read the rest of this entry »

Walking around your home with shoes covered in dirt and grime can be a hassle to clean up after. One of the most common issues people face when trying to keep their homes clean is finding a proper space to store shoes and coats upon entering the house. By incorporating a mudroom in your Keystone Custom Home, you can avoid a chaotic cleanup and disorganized clutter of items.
A mudroom is a space designed to keep elements such as rain, snow, and mud, out of the rest of the home. A mudroom can also be used to store items such as brief cases, sports equipment, keys, mail, and winter wear such as gloves and hats. Most mudrooms are located near the front or back-entryway of the home. With the school season starting back up again, mudrooms are now replacing wet bathing suits and flip flops, for fall jackets and backpacks. With these helpful tips and tricks, you can transform your mudroom into a neat and clutter-free space. Read the rest of this entry »
