You’re a homeowner now. You come home each day, unlock the door, and are immediately greeted by an entire home that is completely yours. Now, with the thrill of buying a home behind you, you are looking to the future. There are plenty of cost-effective upgrades homeowners can complete to increase the value of the entire property. Whether you are working on a budget or simply looking to get the most out of your money, these simple upgrades ahead of the holiday season will make a big difference. Consider your options before pulling the trigger on any renovations or upgrades.
Over time, a home’s paint may crack, discolor, or peel away. It is unsightly, to say the least. Thankfully, painting accents or kitchen cabinets – two aspects of your home that can make a major aesthetic impact – is relatively simple and affordable. A single coat of paint can breathe new life into both your kitchen and home.
Painting seems easy, though, right? Well, painting is as much a science as it is a creative endeavor. There is a technique in the brush strokes, in coating the cabinets or walls properly and choosing the perfect color for the room.
Your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the entire household. It is going to take a beating over the years. Your backsplash, for instance, will take the brunt of your cooking and cleaning mishaps. It might be time to replace the backsplash for an updated look.
When upgrading the backsplash, you’ve got a few options available:
- Paint – A fresh coat of paint is the easiest option. If you are happy with the material of your current backsplash, then a fresh coat of paint is easy enough to breathe a bit of life into it. You’ve got numerous colors available, too.
- Wood – If the time has come to fully replace the backsplash, then consider wood as a viable, attractive option. Wood in the kitchen provides a truly rustic appearance and increases property values extensively.
- Mirroring – If you look at any home design blogs, you’ll notice that mirroring is quite popular right now. Homeowners love the appearance of reflective glass in the kitchen. Your backsplash is the perfect canvas for reflective materials. There are adhesive sheets available for easy installation, too.
If you are remodeling portions of your home on a budget, do not ignore the wallpaper. Wallpaper is a cheap, attractive solution when updating any room in the house. You can opt for the rustic look, a modern, sleek appearance, or perhaps even an old-school décor. Whatever the case, you are sure to find a wallpaper selection that suits your needs and style at any home improvement store.
