Boost Your Home Value

Zillow Digs came out with a recent analysis that is helpful for any homeowner looking to sell.  After viewing the keywords in homes listings and sell times of over 2.5 million homes, they compiled a list of the information, and shared what helps sell homes faster and with an increased sale price. If you’re looking to make some home improvements with the intention of upping your resale value, we’ve compiled a list of the top four things to up resale value and decrease time spent on the market. You’ll definitely feel the well-deserved influence of Joanna Gaines from HGTV as you look through the Top 4.

1. BARN DOORS

Homes with a barn door sold almost two months sooner and for up to 13% more than houses without! Barn doors are functional art. They add visual interest to any living space and can also make a great statement piece. You can use a barn door in lesser considered places and tricky areas in your home, like laundry rooms, en suite bathrooms, pantry areas, hall closets and in entryways. They really up the wow factor of a home. Sliding Barn Doors in Entry WayImage via @hanleydevelopmentgroup

2. SHAKER CABINETS

If you’re about to replace your kitchen cabinets, go with Shaker style. Homes with shaker cabinets went for 9% more than the expected price.  The design gets its name from 18th century American Shakers known, among other things, for the distinct, minimalist furniture they produced. Now the style consists of a square cabinet with trim around the frame, giving a recessed appearance. With the popularity of the modern farmhouse and craftsman style homes, this cabinet style is experiencing widespread fame.White Shaker CabinetsImage via @jkath_designbuild

3. SUBWAY TILE

Subway tile decreased time on the market by 63 days and upped the sale price almost 7%. It’s easy to clean, easy to install yourself and really easy to customize if you want to add a pattern while laying the tile. It also won’t detract from your custom counter tops or statement piece light fixtures, if you’re looking for tile that doesn’t demand attention.White Subway Tile In KitchenImage via @graceblue

4. FARMHOUSE SINKS

Home listings with farmhouse sinks increased sale price by nearly 8% compared to homes without. Another pairing of beauty and functionality, the farmhouse sink is big enough to wash the dishes after the party and bathe the kids and look good doing it. @heller_smelter               Image via @helter_smelter

Thanks to Zillow Digs and their extensive market research, home improvements can be made without having to worry about the potential of negatively affecting resale value! If you’ve been pining over a barn door, consider this the affirmation you need from the housing universe. And if the Joanna Gaines Effect maintains its current trajectory, we predict barn doors and shiplap on next year’s list!

Rustica Lock Measuring Guide

Measuring Distance

This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture

Hole Placement

Introducing an easy solution to little ones slamming your barn door! Our new Closure soft-stop system slows you door down before it makes contact with the track stop. This ensures a smooth stop every time. The Closure system has been specially designed to be universal with all Rustica Hardware flat track systems, no matter the length of track this product will work with your flat track system. Product comes with (2) Closure mechanisms (one for each side of the track system) to protect your system whether it’s being opened or closed.

“Slab” refers to the door only where “Pre Hung” includes the door, hinges, and the door jamb pre-assembled with Rustica standard hinge positions.

Our designer corbels are sold in pairs. Each pair of mantel corbels is made of solid alder wood and designed for use with our floating mantel shelves. Corbels are easy to install and add a substantial design feature to your mantel space. Corbels will come finished to match the color and texture of your selected mantel.

For borehole backset (horizontal location of the doorknob), measure the distance from the outer edge of the door to the center of the borehole.

This is the width, height and thickness of the door itself. If you are replacing a slab (door without the jamb), fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab.

To measure rough opening height, measure the distance from the stud above the door opening to the floorboard at the bottom of the door opening.

To measure rough opening width, measure the distance from the stud on one side of the door opening to the stud on the opposite side of the opening.

Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.

Select which side of the door you'd like your pull/handle to be located when facing the front side of the door (the side of the opening in which you can see your track/rolling system). The back side handle will be placed on the same side of the door as your front side handle.

NOTE: The current lead time for Brushed Steel and Brushed Stainless Steel on the Box system type is 7 weeks.

Hinge Placement Instruction

To identify hinge positions, measure from the TOP of the door to the top of each hinge.
