Utilize your ceiling space to add style
The ceiling is often overlooked when it comes to home renovation projects but it is one of the biggest surfaces available for creativity. A well-designed ceiling can greatly add style and sophistication to the room without compromising on space for functionality. If you have a small budget, you can enhance the ceiling yourself by just adding a fresh coat of paint or create a stenciled ceiling to add character. However, with a little bit more investment, you can opt for eye-catching ceiling designs that will become an aesthetic feature in your room. There are many ceiling design ideas to choose from that will match any theme that you want.
Install new window coverings to achieve a contemporary look
One way of making your home look modern and new without going through a large remodeling project is by adding new blinds or shutters to your windows. If you have windows that have a standard width, you can purchase ready-made blinds and shutters from home improvement stores. If you have windows that are of irregular sizes, you will need to have them custom made. Blinds and shutters come in many colors, patterns, and materials which you can choose from to fit the theme of the different rooms in your home. For something fancier, you may look into plantation shutters for an upscale look.
Make your old bathtub look like new
The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house that will be the deciding factor for potential buyers to put in an offer. Therefore, it is very important that you keep your bathroom looking new and clean. If your bathtub looks dull and old, you do not have to spend a lot of money purchasing a new one and installing it. You can just get your current bathtub reglazed to improve the look of your bathroom considerably. The entire reglazing process only takes a day and your bathtub will be ready to use again in just a matter of days.
Get a tile flooring for both durability and style
One of the best ways to elevate the look of any room is by installing a tile flooring. Not only are they durable and easy to clean, they are also very aesthetically pleasing. Tile flooring’s are especially practical in high-traffic areas like the kitchen, living room, and bathroom. Choose a light colored tile flooring to make the room brighter and enhance its spaciousness. A dark colored tile flooring will create a more intimate and cozy ambiance. You can even splurge a little and get some designer tiles!
Increase the quantity of grounded outlets or upgrade your old ones
For old houses, it is likely that there are more two-prong receptacle outlets than there are grounded, three-prong ones. You can significantly enhance your home’s functionality by adding more three-prong outlets. If your box is grounded, you can do this without any rewiring. Old tan colored switches can look very outdated so you may want to upgrade them to new white ones. You can further improve your current outlets by upgrading them to fancier ones like outlets with timers or USB ports.
As can be seen, the process of improving and elevating the design of your house does not always have to be expensive nor take a long time. With the right designs, small changes can go a long way and reap big rewards.
