It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since you last gave your home a makeover. Back then, you were young and just starting out on your own. You didn’t have any kids yet, and you were eager to put your own stamp on the world. Now that you’re all grown up, it’s time for a complete home makeover! This blog post will discuss everything from painting walls to installing new flooring and also talk about how to make your home more energy-efficient and eco-friendly. So what are you waiting for? Start planning your complete home makeover today!
1) Planning your makeover:
Before you even begin to think about paint colours, wallpaper patterns or furniture pieces, it is important to plan and map out what you want the ultimate outcome of your complete home makeover to be. Establishing a budget will help keep all purchases within reason. Planning also gives you a chance to decide between replacing outdated fixtures (like windows and doors) with new energy-efficient models or just restoring them with a fresh coat of paint.
2) Painting walls:
When most people think of giving their home a facelift, painting walls is usually the first thing that comes to mind. There are so many options available for colour choices that it can often seem overwhelming. When selecting wall colour, keep in mind that lighter shades will make the room look bigger, while darker hues will create an intimate feel. Consider adding an accent wall to give the room some added character!
3) Installing new flooring:
Once the walls have been painted, it’s time to consider installing new flooring. For longevity and sturdy support, hardwood is always a great option. However, if you don’t want to invest in real wood flooring, laminate or vinyl are both excellent alternatives that will require little upkeep over time. Also, consider adding area rugs throughout the home for comfort and colour.
4) Revamping the kitchen:
Your kitchen is usually the focal point of your home, so why not make it stand out? Replacing old cabinets with modern ones can give a room an instant facelift. Consider installing energy-efficient appliances to help save on electrical bills over time and simultaneously eliminate those Common Stove Problems. Refreshing the countertops and backsplash are also great ways to add some personality to a kitchen without breaking the bank.
5) Making your home energy-efficient and eco-friendly:
Now that your complete home makeover has been decided upon and all the items have been purchased, it’s time to think about making your home energy-efficient and eco-friendly. Start by replacing old light bulbs with LED or CFLs. Installing energy-efficient windows and doors is also a great way to reduce the amount of heat gain and loss in your home.
Finally, consider adding insulation throughout the house, as this will help you save money on energy bills while providing more comfort throughout all seasons. If you are looking for an extra touch of green, think about installing solar panels and water heating systems that run from renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. With these changes, you will not only be helping the environment but also expect to see lower utility bills!
