Once you have invested in a home, you have to know that this is not the single time when you have to spend money on this asset, but you will have to invest as well in home renovation projects that will maintain the well being of your home place. A home needs to be cared for in the right way otherwise it may suffer from all sorts of damages with the passage of time.
Materials that houses are made of are prone to weather tear and wear, to interior use of the kitchen and bathroom spaces, and so on. With periodical renovations you can also increase its value in case you will ever want to sell it in the future. Neglecting the needs of your home will bear bad consequences in the future and you will end up owning a house that will need drastic changes which in their turn will cost you more money.
Let’s take a look at the house rooms that are the most commonly subject to home renovation projects:
Kitchen renovation is a project that is carried every two years, especially when it comes to repainting the walls. This is an easy to do job and is a must-do given the use of this space. In here, there is a lot of cooking, steaming and even smoke (if you happen to burn the turkey in the oven), and all these will only put a bad print on the kitchen wall and ceiling.
Maybe not that often but still a common home renovation project at this part of the house is changing the flooring type. If you used to have wooden flooring, you may want to replace it with ceramic tiles that are easier to clean and easier to maintain. If you have already tiles but some of them are chipped and cracked you may want to have them replaced. At this point you need to find the ones that are similar with the old design.
Kitchen countertop can bring in a completely new look of your kitchen if you consider changing its cover. There are many materials available on the market in all sorts of colors to complement any aspect of your kitchen. One other latest trends – pure white crystallized glass countertops. I have done mine with nanonglass (also know as marmoglass) and can recommend HG Stones, a Brooklyn-based stoneyard with large stock of marmoglass.
Bathroom renovation is the other most commonly approached home renovation project. The reason is simple: these rooms are subject to steams, molds, soap scum buildup, and many other issues. I used to have my bathroom walls painted with lime but soon enough I understood that it was time to have the walls covered with tiles and have as such an easy to maintain bathroom walls because they are so much easily cleaned while eliminating the mold that had built up at the corners.
Another thing that I did at that time and you can do as well in this type of home renovation project was to replace the faucets and shower head. Well, I did buy also a new sink and bathtub because the old ones were indeed way too old, but this can cost you other extra bucks.
