Thinking about a home renovation? Sometimes the hardest part is deciding where to begin and what area needs attention first. The good news is that there are plenty of small-to-mid-sized renovation projects out there that improve your home value and quality of life, without resulting in too much debris. Let’s go over a few of our favorites!
Upgrading Your Kitchen Sink
If you don’t already have a dual-sink in your kitchen with plenty of room for dishes, a sink upgrade can make a difference. Single sinks and old faucets are often too small for rinsing dishes and washing pots or pans, not to mention tackling larger cooking projects. Equip your kitchen with a large dual sink with a durable surface (white is going out of fashion since it shows grime so easily) and an extendable faucet with plenty of space.
Adding Heated Floors to the Cold Areas of Your Home
Heated floors use wiring (and sometimes water) to pass inductive heat throughout a surface. If you live in a colder area, you probably know how chilly bathroom, entryway, and kitchen floors can get. Heated floors are an excellent comfort-based project that pairs very well with a new stone or ceramic floor, especially in larger bathrooms and similar areas where you tend to walk around with bare feet. If you get a lot of snow, there are even heated driveways that can help it melt more quickly in the winter.
Installing Smart Lights and Outlets
Smart lights allow you to set schedules and remotely control/dim home lighting. Smart outlets allow you to do the same with lamps and other small plug-in appliances. Both installations are very simple to complete and can add a lot of value to your home. The key is finding a smart device platform that is reliable, highly compatible with other devices, and offers the lights/outlets that you want. Look for options that are supported by Google, Apple, and similar large companies, as these devices tend to have built-in longevity. Staying with the same company also means that you won’t have to switch between apps to control your lighting.
Renovating the Porch
The porch is the first thing that people see when they visit your house, and it’s a great way to make a strong first impression. New paint (include a new door color) can make a lot of difference. General cleanup and the addition of hanging baskets or flower gardens can also completely change how this area looks.
Putting in Skylights
Skylights add more light to rooms and a great feeling of space to your house. Today’s skylights are also far better than those in past years, as they come with features like auto-covering, rain detection, and more!
