When your appliances fail or become outdated, you may be thinking that it?s time to spruce up that kitchen space with new cabinetry and some new countertops and flooring. There are many types of remodeling jobs people try and do for many reasons. Before you pull out that tape measure, though, take a few minutes to read these tips.
Change your shower curtain once a month. Showering produces excessive humidity in a lavatory that in turn causes shower curtains to develop mold and mildew ? this is true even if you use walk in showers, which are known to produces less mold and mildew. To keep your space fresh and healthy, replace your curtains. Don?t buy expensive plastic curtains with hard to find designs, and you won?t feel bad about replacing it.
Rather than replacing the tile in your home?s bathing room or kitchen area, consider re-grouting. In many cases, it is the build-up of dirt, grime and even oil, that is making your tile look old and dated. Scrub it clean, then scrape out the old grout for a quick way to refresh the room.
Freshen up the look of your aging bathroom without re-tiling. Scrape any accumulated grout, and then re-grout instead of replacing the tile. Buff out any leftover haze to make it look sparkling and new. Add new light fixtures, a medicine cabinet, shower doors or a fancy faucet for extra effect.
If you have tiles in your toilet, make sure to use bath rugs in front of your toilet and bathtub. Adding bath rugs not only adds a touch of personality to your toilet, but also keeps you from slipping and falling; try rugs with different patterns and designs for a look that is uniquely your own.
When your remodeling plans call for major bathing room renovations, do yourself a favor and make plans to make your bath rooms handicap-accessible. You do not need to carry out the full conversion immediately but preparing bath rooms for this eventuality will save you time if you grow old in the same house. If you sell your own home, these preparations will add to the value of your house on the market.
Now that you have seen how easy it is to find the strategies to give the home, not just added beauty, but added value, it is time to get started on that home improvement project. The practical tips from this post will give you the information that you need for success.
