The New Year often brings a desire for change. Your home improvement projects fall right into this category. From your kitchen, basement, living room, and to your bathroom; we know you have a list of home improvement projects. We have some inspiring ideas to help you dig in and tackle those home improvement projects.
When it comes to your kitchen, you have probably talked about changing it up to bring it into the 21st Century. There are a lot of kitchens out there that have outdated counter tops on them. Changing the counter top can give your kitchen the lift that it may need. Laminate counter tops are affordable and offer some beautiful designs that look like natural stone. If you would like the real thing, you can invest in granite, quartz or even marble.
If you would like to turn your basement into another entertainment area, how about a fresh coat of paint? Something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can do wonders when it comes to your dark, dreary basement. And while you’re at it, invest in lighting that you really like. These two changes are both inexpensive and can give your basement the lift that is desperately needs.
Your living room is probably one of the most accessed areas of your home. Scan the walls and see where you can change up your wall decor. Family photos, baskets, mirrors, and metal hangings; all can add to the depth of your living room. Maybe all you need is a replacement of furniture or a fresh coat of paint? Little changes can go a long way!
Bathrooms can be one of the hardest places to renovate, especially if your bathroom is still sporting the mint green and Pepto-Bismol pink of the 1970’s. However, little changes can go a long way while you save up for the big renovation. Invest in a nice mirror and new lighting. These two decor changes can really brighten up a bathroom. The New Year is also the perfect time to change up your bathroom window treatments as well as rugs. If they are dull and looking ragged, it’s time to switch it up.
If you’re looking for a renovation that can change the entire look of your house, consider new flooring! Laminate flooring comes in all different styles to fit your designing vision. Make a modern statement by adding concrete laminate flooring to your home. Concrete laminate flooring is all the rage this year and is extremely versatile. You can get the cool, sleek look of a modern home on your own! Laminate flooring is super DIY friendly so virtually anyone can install new flooring in a matter of hours, depending on the size of your home.
Tackle those home remodeling projects today and the New Year will bring new charm to your home. Your kitchen, basement, living room, and bathroom can be updated in many different ways that fit your budget and style. And remember, these updates do not have to happen in a short period of time. Make it a goal to have these updates completed by December 31. And once the next new year rolls around, you can look back and be proud of all of the home improvements projects you’ve completed.
