There are quite a few home improvement ideas that can be done that keep your home current and fresh. Contractors are seeing an increase in simple home renovation over large scaled renovations. It can be costly to re-do a kitchen or a bathroom when a fresh coat of paint, some new shelves, and eco friendly appliances can update the same space at a quarter of the cost. In this article you will learn ways to update the look and feel of your home with minor home improvements that won’t break the bank.
- Fresh Paint: A new color freshly painted on the walls can transform any room. It brings an instant sparkle to the space and changes the feel of the space. Homes are lived in; walls get scuffed and marked up. It is amazing what a new coat of paint can do to erase the years of life your walls are showing. Try a bright, crisp color on the walls. Pick a color that enhances the existing décor to create a new look with little effort or time.
- Schedule Cleaning: This isn’t necessarily a renovation but it is definitely a home improvement. Most people get overwhelmed when it comes to deep cleaning. By creating a cleaning schedule you can maintain the environment without wasting weekend after weekend cleaning. Create a schedule and stick with it. Your home will stay company ready without the headaches and stress of piled up chores. Have your family participate in a ten minute pick up at the end of each and every night. This will prevent clutter from being allowed to accumulate.
- Built-In Furniture: Contractors are seeing a lot of built in furniture features with new construction and the trend is crossing over into home renovations. Creating built-in pieces of furniture allows you to have more space throughout the home. Built-ins within the kitchen allow room for appliances and storage within the same space freeing up space elsewhere.
- Eco-Friendly Appliances: As you start to replace failing, older appliances replace them with eco-friendly, energy efficient appliances. This will save you money monthly. The same concept can be used on other objects throughout the home as well including light bulbs, batteries, fans and the numerous small appliances that you use every day that use a lot of energy.
