Home Renovation Ideas for Your Humble Abode

Home Renovation Ideas for Your Humble Abode
  • Opening Intro -

    If you have been thinking about renovating your home to give it a more up-to-date look or to improve the value, there are many ways to do so relatively inexpensively.

    Before you begin decide which room or rooms you are going to renovate.


Check to see if you need a permit as many cities and towns have their own rules about this and it is better to be safe than sorry. Here are a few ideas for the kitchen, master bedroom, and master bathroom that can totally change the look and improve value.

Refurbishing the Kitchen

Countertops are one of the first things in the kitchen that actually catch the eye as soon as you walk into the room. Tired and outdated countertops can affect the look of the entire kitchen. Changing them is not as difficult as you may think. Granite countertops are very popular today. However, they can be expensive. You can create this look without breaking your budget. While it is not the same as granite, it will look so close that most people will not know the difference.

Kitchen design may require new kitchen cabinets, countertops, and cooking accessories:

How is this possible? Granite paint can be purchased to paint over the old countertops. It is available in several colors and you can match the color you choose with paint for the cabinet doors and drawers for a whole new exciting look. Exchange the kitchen faucet with a more modern one. Add new hardware to the cabinets and drawers and it looks like a totally new kitchen. If your appliances are still in good shape but you are worried about them matching your new look, buy some appliance paint. You can change the color to match your new countertops and cabinets. Add new flooring such as wood-look laminate to complete your kitchen renovation.

Master Bedroom Remodel

A master bedroom make-over may be done just because you are tired of the same look, but it can be an investment. Some of the most sought after homes include master bedrooms with either a sitting area. A modern master bath and spacious closets are also a plus.

If you have been in the same home for several years you may want to update your bedroom furniture. Clean the closet of items that are not immediately needed and add a storage unit to store these things. Professionals, like those at The Storage Center, know that less clutter is always better.  After all, it is one of the best ways to achieve a better look throughout your home.

Some “Bedroom Ideas” for your bedroom remodeling plans:

Add double closet doors to replace the old sliding doors or mirrored doors. Replace the hardware with more modern handles. When you choose paint for the bedroom keep in mind that the color combinations you select will make the room appear larger or smaller. This is important if you decide to sell the home at a future date. Everyone does not have the same taste in color as you do and orange or purple may not be a good choice.

Master Bathroom Renovations

Updating faucets, towel bars, sink bowls, and mirrors can create a whole new look in the master bath. However, one of the most important things to consider when renovating the master bath is the tub and the shower. Some bathrooms have a combo bathtub and shower. More modern bathrooms have a separate shower and a bathtub. A shower with glass doors that are frameless are all the rage with the inside featuring beautiful colored tiles. Popular colors include greens and blues. The shower can actually become the centerpiece for the room.

Bathroom remodeling includes new bath appliances that are stylish and modern:

Generally people renovate their homes because they are bored with the look and want it to look more modern. Sometimes they do so with the idea of selling the home. Whatever the reason, renovating will make your home more enjoyable.
