It’s so important to love where you live. You should enjoy the place where you spend most of your time. You want to feel cozy in your home and you want people to be impressed by it when they walk through the front door. If you don’t feel comfortable and confident in your home, it’s probably time for some home improvements.
We’ll pinpoint several suggestions for improvements to your kitchen, bathrooms, and living areas.
Improvements to your Kitchen
Countertop material holds such a presence throughout a kitchen. Thus, a modern one can make a huge difference. If you don’t have granite or quartz countertops installed in your cooking space, it’s time to get with the times. Granite and quartz, or other natural stone countertops for that matter, will instantly upgrade your kitchen.
Add a backsplash
What goes amazingly with a fresh countertop? A unique backsplash. There are so many designs, materials and color combinations to choose from. All it takes is a visit to a home remodeling store and you’ll be amazed!
The trim between you countertop and cabinets can make your kitchen pop!
Sometimes all your kitchen needs is a little appliance shakeup. Outdated appliances can make the space seem a bit off. Stainless steel all throughout can greatly impact the overall kitchen design. Benefit from SMART technology and go from a step behind to a step ahead in home innovation.
If you’re looking for really cheap home improvements, consider repainting your kitchen cabinets. A clean coat of paint can give a kitchen the flavor that it lost long ago. Making that faded maple or oak vibrant again will make the space more inviting.
Furthermore, repainted cabinets will not be a change that forces you to make additional modifications. It’s simple and inexpensive.
Add a pendant light
Adding a pendant light is another inexpensive tweak. Pendant lights hang perfectly over a kitchen island or peninsula. They are modern, easily blend, and add character to a kitchen. You’ll find pendant lights in many beautiful designs.
Improvements to your Bathroom
A new countertop can be even more productive in a bathroom environment. The space is smaller, so a nice countertop will really stand out. We recommend a natural stone countertop here as well. Granite, quartz, marble, travertine, etc.
Just be sure to have the surface sealed, as these materials are vulnerable to moisture. A seal will protect the natural stone for 2-3 years.
Perhaps wallpaper still adorns your bathroom walls or maybe you’re bored with the current paint color. Well, change it up! There are so many colors to choose from, and the lighter ones can create the illusion of added space.
If it’s in your budget, installing granite tiles on your wall space can create a chic look. Lining half the wall with granite tile is a go-to in today’s home modernization. The other half will of course be painted wall.
Frame-less glass shower door
Frame-less glass shower doors is another bathroom trend that won’t be going away anytime soon. Toss the shower curtain and make your bathroom more visually appealing. Glass panes covering the shower area will expand the small space because no curtain or frames will get in the way.
Modern light fixtures
Like a kitchen pendant light, modernized light fixtures in a bathroom can increase its appeal. Visit your nearest home goods store and you’ll find plenty of options. We don’t recommend going overboard, but one or two creative light fixtures will enhance the bathroom design.
Improvements to your Living Areas
A complete overhaul is not always the solution to improving a living room. If an overhaul is what you have in mind, then contact Nadine Floor Company for flooring and remodeling services. But if you’re looking for home improvements that are more subtle, why not add an elegant area rug?
An area rug can cover up much of a worn floor. It can also grab people’s attentions by featuring a cool design.
A pallet wall will add a cool, commanding feature to practically any room. One will stand as a focal point, offsetting any boring consistency like white walls. A pallet wall is essentially a collection of wood planks staggered and placed atop one another to form a wall. It will surely make a room feel more cozy.
The creation will involve power tools, so you might want to have a professional contractor install the wall for you.
Dimmer lights control the setting of a room. Instead of having bright light or no light, dimmers give off variations of light. With a dimmer installed in your living room, you won’t have to configure the adequate combination of natural light, lamp light and overhead light. The setting is completely in your control.
Of course, there’s always the new furniture option. If you don’t like what you have, get new stuff. The tricky part will be ensuring the new addition matches the old living room makeup. Online shopping is the way of today’s world, but it’s a good idea to visit a furniture store to benefit from an in-person look at the item(s) that will join your living room.
