Truth be told, there’s a lot to consider when trying to improve the looks of your home. Many times, all these factors get cramped up in your head and you have no clue what to do. Indeed, you can get easily overwhelmed. When it comes to home renovation, there are just so many ideas you can try out. Fortunately, there are proven-and-tested ways you can get your precious abode a fresh new look to welcome the new year 2021. Here are the top 3 home renovation ideas from the experts to get you started in the right direction.
A Home Office
Five years back, having an office space in your home was a luxury. Many people spend most of their time at work. Thus, there was no need for an office space. But that is not the case now. As of December 2020, 41.8% of people were still working from home. And even up until now, many people still have to work partially remotely from home. So, having an office space has become a necessity for people.
In doing this, you will need a room for yourself. Having a room specifically designed as your office space would be amazing. You get to work without distractions, boosting your concentration and ultimately your productivity in the process.
But what if you don’t have an extra room in your home to spare? No need to panic, there’s a way out. You simply have to look for a space in your home that would be suiting as an office space. Preferably, a corner in your home. Moreover, you can also declutter a closet or cabinet in your room and use it. Or better still, use the corner of the hallway in your home for the setup.
Now, don’t underestimate the value of home offices. Right off the bat, at a time of the virus and WFH jobs, home offices are a treasure find for any real estate buyer. So, not only do you get to make life a lot easier for yourself but you also get to increase the value of your home. In short, potentially more money in your bank account when the time comes.
One of the cheapest and easiest ways to remodel your house is by painting. Painting gives your home that fresh feel. It automatically confers that renovation feeling that you want. Thankfully, there’s no timeline as to when repainting should be done. So, you can do it whenever you feel like it.
When it comes to painting, the colors matter a whole lot. Some colors bring the house alive while some make the house look dull. The colors you choose should be bold and preferably highly pigmented. You can never go wrong with bright colors in your home. They brighten the home, make the house feel bigger, and allow the proper inflow of light.
Now, if you’re painting a room, that can be managed. But if you’re painting the whole exterior of your house, that’s another story. In this regard, getting the help of professionals to paint your home exterior anew is wise. That should give your house the new look you want.
While a DIY painting on your house exteriors is certainly welcome, it comes with a lot of risks — not to mention the need for proven-and-tested expertise. Take note that the exterior of your house improves the curb appeal of your property. Making good on that means you up the property’s value along with the aesthetics.
Up the Kitchen Appeal
Your kitchen is one of the greatest assets in your home. Think about the amazing memories you share with your family in the kitchen. Plus, think about the great dishes that have come out of that kitchen. All that tells you your kitchen is one part of the house you should pay close attention to when renovating.
For your kitchen, you need something functional and at the same time beautiful. There has to be a nice blend of these two features. In recent times, the trend has been having enough space in the kitchen. People want a kitchen where people can fit in at the same time. Added to that, people want a kitchen that has enough space to store all the food. So, opting for a big cabinet in your kitchen is a good idea.
Improving your home to welcome the new year 2021 is a tall order. But the fruits of your labor can surprise you. Not only do you get a better resale value for your property, but you also ensure everyone you love is as comfortable as you want them to be. However you look at it, it’s a win-win.
