Sustainable materials and methods can be included in any home improvements.
Check out our definitive list of the best home improvement projects.
1. Bathroom Fixture Updates
Replacing a vanity fixture or putting in a different shower head can make a huge difference in the appearance and appeal of a bathroom. Such small changes help to make the space work as it should as a relaxing and pleasant retreat. Dressing up the bathroom with matching faucets and even towel racks are worthwhile fixes that do not cost thousands of dollars.
2. Easy Flooring Make-Overs
Entryways can be dressed with natural or polished stone. Kitchens can be set with tile or wood. Bathrooms with carpeting can be fitted with ceramic tiles or eco-friendly cork flooring. Quick and low-cost changes to worn floors with surfaces like laminates and vinyl can be to simply cover them with durable floor painting. The paint can be applied in solid or patterned colors to various flooring materials.
3. Enclosed Sunroom Additions
The sun is beautiful no matter what the temperature is outdoors, and an enclosed and climate-controlled sunroom is a lovely place to entertain. The area can be consistent with the same flooring as the rest of the house. Otherwise, a patio floor of cement or flagstone is fabulous.
Consider attaching it as an add-on to the kitchen, which would make serving out on the patio convenient to the indoor cooking area. Additionally, a properly ventilated grill unit can be added to the room for barbecuing and relaxing with family and friends.
4. Simple Facelifts for Your Kitchen
Simple face-lifts like backsplashes or new lighting for the kitchen make it more stylish and eye-catching. Backsplashes provide an easy-clean surface and can easily be constructed with beautiful colored glass tiles, rock, stainless steel or other materials that add a touch of color and allure for the wall above the stove and lower cabinets. Meanwhile, focused lighting over work stations is helpful and stunning.
5. Storage for Small Kitchen Appliances
Any empty wall space can easily be fitted with cabinets or shelves that match the style of the current cupboards in the kitchen. A small island or portable bar also adds useful space for putting away miscellaneous kitchen items or dry food. Even a small kitchen is much more usable and practical with added storage that is properly arranged to avoid crowding the area.
If new cabinets are not in your budget, it’s much more affordable to revamp the existing cabinet work. Updating the knobs and fixtures, staining the wood, or adding more aesthetically pleasing doors are all ways to change the look without racking up the bill too much. More drawers as well as extras in cabinets like pull-out shelves and Lazy Susans can be added.
