Breathe New Life to Your Home with These Five Renovation Tips

March 27, 2024

Let's face it: sometimes even the dream house can start to feel . . . well, a little drab after a while. But before you pack up the moving boxes, consider a refresh! Something simple like letting us install beautiful window treatments to bring more light? Or perhaps adding structures like a screened-in porch? Here are 5 renovation ideas to make your house feel brand new again, no matter where you live:

Get Dressed Up with Upgraded Window Treatments for Your Home Renovation

Ditch those dusty old blinds and elevate your space with stylish window treatments. Play with light and function: bold roller shades can create a sleek movie room atmosphere, while Roman shades add a touch of elegance. Transitional shades offer the best of both worlds, letting you adjust the mood depending on the occasion.

But for a timeless look with a touch of luxury, consider durable composite plantation shutters. Their clean lines add architectural detail and provide excellent light control. You can customize the amount of sunshine or privacy you desire with a simple adjustment of the louvers. You can swing open the hinged panels for complete sunshine or simply adjust the louvers to shift filtered light wherever it is needed. Then close the panels and louvers to block most sunlight and drafts.

Brighten Your Interior With Light Upgrades

The proper combination of electric and natural light will alter your indoor environment, making it appear more spacious. If part of your house appears crowded and gloomy, add more light. A certified electrician could insert your choice of fixtures, or you can incorporate an assortment of lamps. It’s not difficult to find lighting for your unique style, from fun and funky lamps to ornate chandeliers.

Make the most of natural light to cheer up your interior — and your mood. If your home has wobbly window treatments that are a pain to open and close, switch them out with interior shutters. They effortlessly open to give you a clear view of your windows in the event your family needs additional light for play or work.

Renovate from the Ground Up with New Carpet

Your carpet gets a workout daily from everyone trodding over it. If your carpeting appears torn and trampled, replace it for an immediate home improvement. Today’s popular options vary widely from everyday shades and eco-friendly materials to bold jewel tones and extreme designs, so there’s a suitable choice for any interior space. You might peruse different textures and densities to discover a long-lasting solution that’s most appealing to you. If you don’t require brand-new carpets, go a different route with a modern rug.

Take Your Living Space Outdoors

Home renovations can move into the exterior as well — especially if your house feels cramped. Transform your patio or deck into a more welcoming space for entertaining or unwinding with new seating, an umbrella or gazebo for shade, and decorative lights. Install a gas or wood-burning fire pit for those chilly autumn nights. Add fun games you can play in the yard with family and friends. If you lack a deck or patio, you can build a new space by putting down stone pavers or deck tiles.

Renovations are easy to adapt for more living space. Simply paint or stain as needed and add a free-standing or hanging swing and a rocking chair or two for seating. You could also enclose your exterior environment to restrict pesky bugs like mosquitos and make your new favorite spot more satisfying.

Make A Statement With Wallpaper

Wallpaper is a trendy choice in home renovations. You have access to wallpaper in a range of designs, colors, and textures to change the appearance of every room within your residence. You might put up playful styles in the kids’ rooms, a bold geometric design in your formal dining area, and a quaint covering in the downstairs guest bathroom. You could also update your lounging area with a fresh coat of paint and add complementary wallpaper on a neighboring wall.
