As we get into the heart of summer, you may be looking for home renovation ideas for your Ocean City home or condo. If you know you want to do something to change up the look of your home, but are looking for some ideas on where to start, here’s a look at 17 ideas to inspire you as you give your home a new, fresh look.


1. Two Tone Is Out - Three Tone Is In

It’s long been said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and there’s been a recent trend of using 3 different colors to provide an added layer of depth to the kitchen. Consider having different sections of cabinets be two different colors with a third color on the walls.

2. Wood Cabinets

If you don’t want to take the leap into a tri-tone kitchen, there has also been a resurgence of wood cabinets that provide a simplistic look.

3. Soft Kitchens

2019 saw the trend of “soft” colors become very popular in kitchens, and it’s widely expected that it’s a trend that will continue. Marble backsplashes with soft gray and white cabinets provide a clean, elegant look.

4. Butcher Block Counter Tops

Especially popular on island countertops, a butcher block countertop made of wood breaks up the solid colors of perimeter counters and cabinets.

5. Decorative Sink Panels

Some major companies, such as Kohler, are introducing customizable farmhouse sinks. These allow homeowners to choose a pattern that will be embossed across the front of their sink, allowing you to be as bold or as modest as you want.

Christmas in Ocean City - 2018

I get asked all the time what there is to do in Ocean City, MD when the temperatures cool down. The off-season and especially the holidays are some of the best times to enjoy this beautiful beach community. Below are the top eleven things that my family and I like to do during the holidays in Ocean City and the surrounding areas. 

1. Check out a local Christmas parade. Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 1st  for the Ocean City Christmas parade! The parade will start at 11am on Old Landing Rd. and march northbound to 120th street. The event will feature more than 50 units, including high school bands, horses, antique cars, colorful holiday floats, and more. Continue the parade fun later in the week at the Berlin Christmas parade, scheduled for Thursday, December 6th at 7pm. The Berlin Christmas parade, celebrating its 150th anniversary, will bring the town of Berlin to life and light as floats, bands, firetrucks, and more parade down Main Street.  

2. Support a good cause. Christmas and the holiday season in general is a time when most people’s thoughts turn to giving. And thankfully, Ocean City has no shortage of charitable events to take part in. Whether it’s as small as donating canned goods to Diakonia for their annual food drive, or as big as taking a plunge in the ocean on New Year’s Day to support our not-for-profit community hospital, there are many ways to give back at the holidays and have fun while doing so.

3. Light up your night. Each winter, Northside Park transforms into a magical winter wonderland with its annual Winterfest of Lights.
