Home Renovation Tips You’ve Never Thought Of
In this blog we will talk about some home renovation tips you may have never thought of before. Below I will be listing a quick sheet of additional, overlooked tasked you may have forgotten about.
We often get so caught up on the interior of the home that we forget about the exterior. Don't forget to tidy up the lawn to make the home more curb appealing.
If you're into gardening, a raised garden bed is an excellent and easily doable renovation tip. Not only is it easier for growing plants (vegetables or flowers, herbs or fruits), but it’s much less time-consuming to maintain than an in-ground garden. Plus it looks great.
Have hooks available. Nothing looks worse than walking into your home and seeing a book bag here, a jacket here, and a hand bag in the other corner. Hooks are one of the most useful components of an effective entryway.
Hang a mirror or two. Not only is it nice to have one last glance before exiting the home but, mirrors bounce light around like no other. Helping to keep the home looking more vibrant and spacious.
Display meaningful and colorful artwork throughout the home. Keep it to your taste. If you love eclectic style or country style choose artwork that fits this. The more genuine a room feels the more that people will gravitate.
Give your kitchen cabinets a face lift. No, this does not mean you have to go out and spend 1000's on new cabinets. This can be as simple as a fresh coat of paint. Paint can change the vibe of a room in as easy as 1,2,3.
Replace your hardware. Updating door knobs, faucets, and handles adds significant value to the feel of the entire home.
Open floor plans are IN. If your home doesn't already have the feel of an open floor plan, you could consider, taking out a wall or even a strategic half-a-wall to give the illusion of more space.
“The size of your home dramatically affects the value, but square footage isn’t the only space that counts. Visual space … also counts. The key is to make each room in your house feel larger” – DIYNetwork. In the bathroom this can easily be achieved by adding a LARGE mirror to visually double the size of the bathroom. You can also use neutral to monochromatic paint colors to minimize the hard lines a bathroom typically has.
Replace outdated lights. Lighting is the key for any space to feel fresh, and great lighting can also add style to small areas of the home.
