People renovate their homes for three major reasons. The first is that they are not satisfied with how the house is designed. They could have got tired of the same look and change it up once and while, they are going to rent it out and it needs to be attractive to possible tenants, and they need the house to be in a good enough condition to sell. All these reasons boil down to the fact that renovations are all about adding value to the home.
So how do we add value? It takes more than a fresh coat of paint. You may opt for generic changes such as upgrading the flooring and light fixtures. Or you may opt for custom renovations such as fitted wardrobes. You need to look at the spaces you want to upgrade.
The bathroom is one of the rooms people really look at when moving or buying a home. It is a major part of the daily routine. Inconveniences with the bathroom such as poor water pressure, bad lighting, and distasteful colours do affect those daily routines. Keep the fixtures in top condition and go for cool and clean colours. Minimal design and function can never go out of style.
The bedroom is where your personality should shine at its best. Whether you work or study in your bedroom or not, it acts as your sanctuary and should be filled with the things you love. You cannot predict who your tenants are but having a custom wardrobe is a good way to add a functional, and at the same time personal, touch to the space.
The kitchen is another room that can make or break a deal. Even for tenants who don’t cook, a sleek kitchen adds a nice touch for entertaining guests. To upgrade your kitchen, consider opening up the space, between the kitchen and the dining room or living room. Having an open floor plan makes the space feel a lot larger than it actually is. This is great for homes that seem cramped. If it is not possible, perhaps replacing the backsplash tiles and repainting the cabinets will give off a new feel. Here you have the chance to change the style (the tile) and the atmosphere (the colour).
When doing renovations, it is all about creating lasting changes that will affect an individual’s lifestyle. It is about hopefully adding convenience in every way possible. Convenience can be physically tangible, with good fixtures and furniture, or emotionally felt, through the colour and lighting. When you balance both, it can make a world of difference in adding value to your home.
