Renovations in your home can increase its value and its curb appeal. Some renovations can take multiple weeks or months to complete and cost quite a bit of money. Not all renovations need to hurt your wallet to elevate your home and some can be done in just one weekend. Cole Val Construction can complete large scale and small scale renovations to your home to elevate the look and feel of your home.
1- Add A Fresh Coat Of Paint
One easy way to improve your home is to change your paint color or add a fresh coat of paint. Over time paint can chip, peel, or fade and may need to be updated while living in your home. If you are not loving a color in your home, want to create an accent wall, or want to make a focal point area, try applying paint. Any type of remodel will help elevate your home and increase its value.
2- Upgrade Light Fixtures
Another easy step to take to improve your home is to upgrade light fixtures. Changing out light bulbs, adding sconces, implementing mood lighting, or adding unique chandeliers can take your home to the next level. The right lighting can create a positive atmosphere in your home and help improve your mood.
What makes updating light fixtures so easy is that a lot of light fixtures that look high-end are affordable. Using popular finishes or colors of metals will help take your home to the next level. Small scale renovations don’t have to take a whole team of people to complete and can be as simple as painting fixtures or updating hardware.
3- Add Built-Ins
While this renovation may seem larger than others, built-ins are worth the investment. Adding more storage space to your home will not only elevate your home but will increase your home value when you look to sell. Built-ins may seem like a large scale project but the unique storage option is completely possible to complete in a weekend.
If you are not up for the project quite yet, you can shortcut the process by putting in bookshelves or removable storage cabinets first.
4- Install A Ceiling Fan
Small scale renovations can be decorative or practical. This renovation can be easily done in over a weekend. A ceiling fan helps to circulate the air in your home while regulating the temperature. Ceiling fans can add visual interest to a room while also providing further function with lighting and air movement.
Ceiling fans can be purchased from home improvement stores and can often be installed within a few hours. If you have especially high ceilings or older wiring, you may want to consider hiring a professional.
5- Change Out Cabinet Hardware
Small elements like cabinet hardware or door handles can get worn out or broken over time and lower the look of your home. Replacing your cabinet hardware is an easy way to upgrade your kitchen or bathroom. Changing out cabinet hardware for a more on-trend design is an affordable way to change the look of your space.
Depending on where you are installing new cabinet hardware, it can be a good way to show your personality with fun colors or designs. For a common room like a kitchen or living room, it may be best to keep to a seamless handle or knob when completing small scale renovations.
6- Use Extra Space For A Guest Bedroom
If you have an extra room, or an extra large basement or gathering space, splitting it off to make a guest room is a great way to elevate your home. Adding a wall or splitting off an area may take longer than one weekend, but the process of adapting one room into another makes the process much smoother.
Adding a guest room increases the number of usable spaces in your home, increases the bedroom count, and is a great selling point if you ever put your home on the market. Small scale renovations are an easier and more affordable way to show off the hidden gems of your home.
