Whether you want to quickly sell your home or plan to live in it for decades to come, a solid renovation can not only add pleasing aesthetics to your home, but can also help it to feel like new, even far away into the future.
A FRESH COAT OF PAINT
It might seem simplistic but a fresh coat of paint can really do wonders to an old house. And it is important to think about this not so much as repainting but as more of setting the mood. Most homes, at least these days, hit the market with bare white walls and crown molding (and baseboards, etc). But you can do so much more by painting complementary or even conflicting colors on the walls and the trim. This adds depth to the room, character. Indeed, it will probably feel like a new house.
Some older homes have hardwood floors, even under the carpets; of course, this is less common in newer homes. Either way, though, you might want to consider pulling up the carpet to search for them or to install them yourself. Add an area rug or runner and the space will probably feel like a brand new home.
WINDOWS AND DOORS AND TRIM
While the inside of your home could probably use the attention, do not forget the exterior too. You can update the look of your home—and make it feel like new—by upgrading your front door, garage door, windows, and trim. Consider more than just paint here too.
ROOM TO ROOM
Of course, another way to make your home feel like new is to start remodeling each of the different rooms. The kitchen might be the best place to start as it is the most commonly used—and oft the most-beloved—room in any home. Renovco kitchen remodeling can include installing new appliances and cabinets or adding a new kitchen island.
Similarly, updating the bathroom can bring new life to a home. Change the lighting and the colors and it could be more inviting. Also, updating a bedroom could transform an othwerise dull, older property into something far more intriguing. Obviously, there are other rooms in a house, but these are the three where you will start your renovation ideas.
