However, there are still some practices that work better than others when it comes to renovation. Here, then, are some tips and tricks for making your home renovation the best it can be.
- Contrasting is your friend. If you choose to use dark cabinets, pair them with light countertops, and vice versa. Too much of one shade – or one color – can lead to overkill.
- Stainless steel appliances certainly get dirty easier, but they exponentially increase the value of your home, and they look better too!
- For an older home, stay true to the elements by integrating modern touches with some antiques. Chandeliers, wall sconces, and baseboards are all good antique pieces to keep in a remodeled room.
- White tiles will make a small bathroom look larger, but take care to accent the bathroom with a trim of a bolder color.
- Assuming an open floor plan makes sense for the entire layout of the house, having an open concept kitchen will add some much-needed space to a house that has a questionable amount of available square footage.
- If you see any popcorn ceilings in a room, remove them immediately. There is nothing appealing about a popcorn ceiling. At all.
- In a master bedroom, stick to neutral colors. Anything too bold and you run the risk of not creating a calming master retreat.
- If your cabinetry is made of wood, try restoring it as opposed to replacing it. You will not only save some money, but you will keep some of the original character of the home!
- Crown moulding will make all the difference in an otherwise dull and boring bedroom.
