Renovating Your Home; Where To Do It, And What To Do



Renovating your home is one of the most fun things that you can do. It means that you get to redesign what you don’t like about your house and turn it into something that you do like. But what can you do in each room to give it the most effect? What works the best? Well if you keep reading then you’ll find out!


Bathrooms


Bathrooms are like attachments to a house, they’re solely functional room but they have to have a clean, cool and sanitary feel to them because of the purpose that they are for! After you’ve gotten out the shower you want to be surrounded by a clean environment, one that isn’t going to get ruined after some water has gotten on it, so here’s what you should do. Paint the walls of your bathroom in a neutral colour that won’t get water stain marks. Water is going to get everywhere in your bathroom so if you have a greyscale paint then the stains won’t show up. You should also lay down some bathroom tiles. These tiles are waterproof and make cleaning up water much easier to do. You should be putting these on the floor in your bathroom and on the surrounding wall of your bath/shower, water will just drop off it and won’t damage it, so so you can just leave it to dry without worrying about it!


Kitchen


Your kitchen is a very important part of your house. Again, it’s a functional room but it’s also a very sociable one too. When dinner is being cooked, you can expect lots of hungry people to be popping in and out to check how far away dinner is going to be! You have to make it as functional but attractive as possible because it serves both purposes, quite unlike any other room in the house, so here’s what you should do. Get a new laminate worktop for your kitchen, it’s the most hard wearing and cheapest out of all of the options that are available to you, so you can save a lot of money here. You can also get a lot of colour with laminate worktops too, so you could go for something exotic in your kitchen! You’re also going to have to make sure that your flooring and cupboards match the colour and the styling of the laminate worktop too else everything will look patchworked and out of place, but if that’s the look you’re going for then by all means do it!


Living Room


Possibly the most complex out of all of the room in your house that you can renovate, but it’s the one that is going to have the most effect. Your living room is the main social hub of your house, it’s where everyone first goes after a long day of work or school, flicks their shoes off and sits down. Most people have TVs in their living rooms too, so it’s a place where everyone gangs together to watch a bit of TV to wind down late at night after a hard day. There are 2 main things that you can do with your living room, restructure or refurnish. By refurnish we mean getting new furniture in, getting new carpets in and painting the walls. On it’s own this is normally enough to make a massive change because the color of the room is going to be totally different, you’re going to have different furniture to use and everything is going to feel much more comfortable on your feet. However a restructure is when you knock down most of the building to restructure the living room, this often requires a custom house builder due to the sheer amount of work that has to be done, but once you’ve done it you’ll realise the work was worth it!

All of these things are going to make a huge difference to your house and is why they deserve a spot here! Your bathrooms when done up properly will provide a whole different feel to your house even though they are only tiny rooms that serve one purpose, your kitchen will be much easier to use and maintain and you can have it any colour you like so long as it all matches (or not!) and you’ll have the living room of your dreams, whether or not you decide to restructure your living room completely is up to you! There are of course multiple ways to design your bathroom, we haven’t gone into specific detail here but if you’re looking for a luxurious style check this out!
