“Don’t Waste Your Time Selecting the Wrong Contractor!”


How to Get Your Dream House with These Home Improvement Tips!

It doesn’t matter what kind of home you own, there are always ways to improve it. Whether you want to simply remodel a room or have the entire property renovated, there are home improvement experts available to help you. Making improvements to a home, no matter how simple or complex, will increase its value.

Even if you don’t want to sell it, you’ll still have a nicer home. In fact, you can have your dream home if you make the right improvements to it.

Here are some ways you can transform any home into a dream home:

Choose improvements that add a lot of value

Home ImprovementThis is especially important if you plan on selling the house someday. Some home remodeling/addition projects have a high return on investment. Some of the highest ROIs include:

  • Attic bedrooms
  • Basement remodel
  • Backup power generator
  • Deck addition (particularly wood or composite)
  • Entry door replacement with fiberglass
  • Bathroom remodel
  • Bathroom addition

While most of these are costly, their resale value is usually 60% or higher.

Use lighting tricks and mirrors to make small rooms appear larger

Clever use of indirect lighting, such as installing cove lights in soffits, creates the illusion that the walls are higher. You can also use mirrors to give off the illusion that a small space is larger than it is. For instance, you can group several small mirrors together on the wall and paint their frames. They have many uses in small kitchens as well. A mirror placed behind the stove will bounce available light around. You might also want to glue mirrored tiles to the front of kitchen cabinets.

Brighten a dark room up with highly lacquered walls

Lacquered walls are very trendy, and they don’t appear to be going away anytime soon. This design can be used in any room, and any colour can be used. However, you must first make sure that the walls or woodwork is in top-notch condition. Just as long as the walls don’t crack or move, the lacquer will hold up fine for years to come.

Don’t forget the little things

Details play an important part in home improvement. In the kitchen and bathroom, it’s okay to splurge on custom cabinet knobs, pulls, and faucets. Would you prefer a one handed faucet, two handed faucet, hands-free (motion sensing) faucet? What kind of material would be ideal for your kitchen and/or bathroom? Stainless steel? Chrome? Oil-rubbed bronze? You can also have new fixtures installed.

Fix up the exterior

Remodelling the inside of your home will do you no good if the outside is uninviting. If the exterior isn’t too bad, you might be able to get away with replacing the door, trimming shrubs, fixing up the porch, etc. If you want fancy landscaping but don’t have a lot of money, you can hang a few container plants from the porch’s ceiling and/or place a few around the front door. If you have a small yard and want more lawn space, get a narrower walkway and a fresh layer of sod/turf.

You don’t have to go through an expensive renovation to get your dream home. All it takes is a home improvement plan and some creativity.
