Let’s face it, many of us are house proud and really enjoying spending time, effort and money on our homes to make them look and feel as best as they can. After all, a home can be one of the biggest purchases you make in your life, which ultimately means that many of us are not only proud of how they look, but feel damn well special that we have our own place.
However, what you want your home to look like, and the sheer reality of costs and expenditure can be somewhat different. So we often have to compromise on things, or spend our time doing smaller jobs rather than everything all in one go. So I thought I would share with you what I consider to be one off changes that you can make to your home, that can honestly leave a lasting impression. Perhaps it will inspire you to take on one or two of these projects yourself.
What you walk on each day can dramatically change the look of your home
Our home floors are a huge surface area of our homes and take up most if not all of the square footage of our homes. However, many people don’t think to change up the flooring as a job on its own and instead choose to include it as part of an overall makeover for a room. However, taking on this change solely can dramatically change the look of your hoe, and it can often be an easier project to take on. One of the first things to consider would be the DMX 1-STEP laminate underlayment before laying down any flooring. Once you start the job you will begin to see that it can really change how a room feels, especially in regards to its size. Why not try it and see for yourself.
Natural light can significantly change the way a room feels
We all know that light can really make a room feel bigger, so getting in as much natural light into a property is a quick and easy way to do this. On the subject of windows, this could be the ideal opportunity to upgrade your windows and in the process, you could also gain any permissions to make them bigger. The more light you get into a home, the more appeal it has.
On the subject or lighting, think big
While discussing lighting, if you don’t have the option to get more natural light into your home, then you could invest in some great lighting for the room. Dramatic ceiling hangings can be a great feature and add some great light, or you could add a more modern touch by installing spotlights.
Investing in key areas could increase value
Finally, investing in the key areas such as the kitchen and bathroom can make a home feel like it has been completely revamped, just by focusing on one of these rooms. They also tend to be pricey, but they can add the most value, so it could be well worth the investment.
I hope that this inspires you to make some one off changes to your home this year.
