When it comes to high-impact updates, few things are more gratifying than new flooring in your home. You can choose to do the work yourself, or most flooring companies can install the flooring of your choice (either carpet, tile, hardwoods, or other) in a short amount of time, generally about one day.
If an interior designer is too expensive for you, do some research to do the job yourself. You can learn from websites, books, magazines and more. One layout in a magazine can be your inspiration for what you want your home to look like. In addition, these resources can inform you on how to perform cheaper renovation projects.
If there are small holes in walls from hanging pictures or paintings, try using spackle to renew the walls. Spackle can be purchased at your local home-improvement store. To take care of a few small holes, you’re not going to need much spackle at all. If you have a very small hole, use a bobby pin, put a little spackle on it, and cover the hole. When the spackle is dry, you should use a rigid object such as a credit card to smooth the hole. Next, apply a coat of paint to finish the job. Any holes in your walls will disappear right before your eyes!
A good place to start home renovation is the kitchen. If you are planning to repaint the walls, mix a solution of TSP cleaner with water (2:1 ratio) and rub down the walls. You will wipe away grease, but possibly some paint as well. Painting your kitchen in a warm neutral color, like tan, will give you a great new look.
There are many options available when it comes to updating your kitchen appliances. If you would like to have a fashionable stainless steel finish, there is no reason to get rid of your perfectly good refrigerator. Instead of buying new appliances, buy spray paint. This will instantly liven up the appearance of your kitchen. If your appliances are old and need replacing, make sure to buy energy efficient appliances that can save you money. You can find additional information about saving money on electricity across a variety of resources.
You should now be ready to begin your next home improvement project to turn your house into the home of your dreams. Everything you’ve just read will empower you to make informed decisions and successful choices in your projects.
