We’re halfway through the year and with the current events, many of us may have gotten preoccupied with all that’s going on around us. And, since we’ve been spending a lot of time at home, for the most part, it’s pretty easy to look around and notice how much our own homes need to be updated. Regular house cleaning may have helped with your stress of being sort of cooped up at home so we compiled a few home renovation projects to encourage a fresh new home environment for you and your family. You may want to consider having a Connecticut home inspection performed before doing any major renovations. This way, you will know which parts of your home need fixing or maintenance and which could use a major overhaul.
But if you recently had a home inspection and have identified the areas needing improvement, you’re good to go! And if you’re wondering, “How do I modernize my home on a budget?” you have got to read this! Do not be overwhelmed and think that those modern, living spaces you see online can break the bank. Here are 5 budget-friendly home renovation ideas to get you started.
Color Your Hallway
Some homeowners are too afraid to put colors on their walls, much more in a hallway. A single-colored home is great but one that has more brightness to your home is even better! What about the color of Mellow Yellow? You’ll be surprised how this color will brighten up your space. But why mellow yellow? This color is not too bright but is colorful enough to free your eyes from white-colored walls.
Bring In The Plants
Perhaps this is the cheapest to zero-cost home improvement ever. Indoor plants help to clean the air inside your home. Plus, it adds the perfect shades of greens that are pleasing to your eyes. You see, freshening up your home doesn’t necessarily require adding furniture or purchasing new items. You may have plants in your garden that will do well inside your home. However, remember to keep an organized theme. If you want plants, add only the green ones. If you want flowers, stick to the whites. This way your home stays tidy and classy.
Open Up More Living Space
More homeowners are loving the open-space plans and this trend is actually paving the way for more convenience and comfort at home. If your home has a lot of closed spaces, it’s high time to bring down those walls – except for the bathroom and bedroom of course. Your dining, kitchen, and living room could use more open space for added height and airflow. This way, you will feel less cramped and your home will be cooler and feel much larger. Match your new design with shelving units.
Change Your Floor Style
Gone are the days when carpet ruled the home. Carpet is still used at home but more as accent features only, giving way for wooden floors to stand out. Changing your flooring to wooden may be costly for some but inexpensive alternatives are available such as wood-style laminate and vinyl. With an all-wooden floor, your home is more elegant and pleasing to the eyes.
Declutter, Declutter, Declutter
Improving the air quality of your home does not necessarily revolve around the HVAC system. It’s sometimes the existence of unnecessary items inside your home that not only consume space but hold and hide contaminants as well. This can include carpet, rugs, stuffed toys, and other materials that can easily hold dust and pollen. If you want to keep them, make sure to wash them regularly.
On top of these few renovations, it’s a great idea to regularly deep clean your home, look around often on the inside and the outside for signs of issues, and contact us for your Connecticut home inspection needs.
