Spring is finally here! Freshen up your home and put a little extra spring in your step with these spring remodeling ideas.
You’ve been cooped up inside all winter. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably getting bored of looking at the same decor, living in the same rooms, and using the same appliances. You’ve rearranged furniture, you’ve painted, you’ve hung new decorations or made other changes here and there, but those steps only take you so far. And moving or buying a new home just isn’t an option right now.
This is where remodeling comes in. It gives you a big change, allows you to update and completely rearrange your space as much as you want, but isn’t nearly as expensive as buying a new house. When it is time to move, any remodeling you’ve done helps you financially by raising the value of your home and thus allowing you to sell it for more. Remodeling gives you the opportunity to live happier in your home for now, and is an investment toward selling it in the future.
So, what kind of spring remodeling project did you have in mind?
Here are some remodeling ideas to help spark your creativity.
Bathroom Remodeling Ideas:
We all spend time there, so why not make the best of it? One couple gave their bathroom a whole new look just by changing the vanity, replacing the floor tiling, and adding some brighter lighting. I hate it when rooms are too dark!
Notice how the white trim vanity with the marble counter contrasts to brighten the room and gives it the feel of cleanliness. The patterned tile compliments both colors.
Or what about bathing itself? Here, the shower tub needed some serious updating. Tiles were cracking, the tub and faucets were rusting, the toilet was a bit tight being so close to the tub, and who needs a window into their shower?
This is the same room, rearranged and updated. The window is in the same place, but the shower, toilet, and sink have all been moved to take better advantage of the space and make it a little more open for moving about.
Why would you like to change in your bathroom? Can you imagine how it might look, or even be arranged differently? The nice thing about bathroom remodeling is that it is generally the least expensive room to remodel being as that it is the smallest in the house, but doing so makes a dramatic difference.
Kitchen Remodeling Ideas:
This kitchen remodeling project brought major change to this homeowner. The biggest problem is the narrowness of this galley style kitchen. Two people could hardly fit around the stove / refrigerator / counter area.
Now they’ve switched the refrigerator and stove (while updating both), added a lot more counter and cabinet space (I hate running out of storage space, and knocked down the wall over sink to make the room feel nice and open.
Not all kitchens need to be completely remodeled to make a difference, though. Even simply replacing cabinetry can greatly enhance a home’s decor and resale value. Compare this kitchen’s before and after photos, for example.
