Home renovation takes a lot of preparation, patience, and research to do it right. Otherwise, you are setting yourself up for some pretty gnarly headaches along the way when problems start arising. But, your home deserves a renovation, so you need to find the best way to carry out your renovation project, and you need to do it on a budget. With the right preparation and PAAVAA, you can predict the time-scale and cost of the entire project. Let’s take a look at the most critical areas that face renovation on a regular basis:
The living room is where you and your family spend the most time, which is why it is a primary consideration when doing a home refresh. Take those dark furnishings and replace them with some brighter and modern ones. Change the layout of the furniture, tear down the old wallpapers, and repaint the walls to make the room feel more open and cozy.
Add hardwood floors for a polished look, take those old carpets out, and maximize natural light by adding a mirror or translucent curtains.
In the whole renovating process, this is perhaps the most daunting and expensive task. So, before you start, make a checklist of all the things you’d like to change and calculate the costs (you can do it alone or with your plumber.) Consider adding glazed or porcelain tile floors, making a switch from only a shower to a tub-shower combo and change storage, sinks, and cabinets. Also, installing a vent is a must because you’ll need an air circulation if there’s no window in the room.
The next room you should freshen up is the kitchen. Remove the outdated wallpaper and add a tile backsplash because you can maintain it easily. Brighten it up and replace old floor tiles with new, ceramic ones. If you’re painting the walls, don’t save on cheap paint alternatives and go with high-quality, semi-gloss paint because it lasts longer and doesn’t retain moisture.
Making small improvements can make a surprisingly big difference. Replace your cupboard door knobs, or old drawer handles with new ones to complement the modern kitchen décor.
If you have a small bedroom that gives off a bit of a claustrophobic feel, you’ll have to get into the mindset of making the most out of that space. Make it comfortable and cozy with strategic styling – for extra storage space buy a divan with built-in drawers and a bed settee instead of a regular bed.
Replace large cupboards with quality shelving, add a built-in wardrobe, and add a large mirror on the wall to enhance the size of the space. This may be your DIY task for a home renovation because a bedroom doesn’t require much professional work like kitchens or bathrooms do.
