Home Remodeling Tips When I purchased my second home after outgrowing my starter home, I was absolutely in love with it. However, after moving in, I quickly realized how much I missed having a master bathroom. I didn't think I would miss it, since the nearest bathroom is right down the hall, but since I frequently have guests over for long weekends, I realized that we were "fighting" for much-needed bathroom space. I then looked into my remodeling options and a contractor told me that adding a master bath would be a very easy task to complete. The remodeling process didn't take long, and my home is now perfect. I am very eager to share what I learned about home remodeling with others who need the tips on my new blog!




Have you grown tired of your current house? Are you thinking of selling it so you can move somewhere else? Instead of taking the time and expense to sell your home, search for a new home, and move to the new place, a better option may be to simply update or renovate your current home. There are many things you can do that can make your home look nicer, bigger, or more modern without having to spend a fortune doing so. Some things that you may want to consider doing include:

Update bathroom: The bathroom is a good place to start when talking about remodeling. Since it is most likely to be the smallest room in the house, any changes made here will cost less than if they were made in other rooms. It's also a room that you will visit multiple times per day and, as a result, helps to set the feel of the rest of the house. If all you do is to install a more modern-looking bathroom cabinet and sink, replace the toilet, and repaint the walls, you'll go a long way towards making the room feel entirely new and different. Of course, if you have the budget for it, you may want to also consider replacing the bathtub or shower and the floor as well.

Replace kitchen cabinets: Few things make a kitchen feel small and cramped like cabinets that are poorly thought out or that are too small for your needs. If you can't store your pots and pans along with your family's foods, even the best kitchen is going to feel inadequate. Although it might not seem like there's much change to be had as far as rearranging your kitchen cabinets to better suit your needs, it's a good idea to consult with a professional about this. They'll be able to make suggestions for better cabinet placement or for slight changes in the dimensions of your current kitchen cabinets that can result in your new cabinets making your kitchen feel completely new.

Repaint exterior: It's one of the first things you see when you arrive and one of the last things that you see when you go. Although you might not consciously think that there is anything drastically wrong with the outside of the house, layers of dirt and grime combined with paint that is starting to look weathered and aged can contribute to making your home feel old and worn out. Installing new kitchen cabinets or renovating your bathroom may do little good if you're subconsciously perceiving your home as old and decaying. Repainting can go a long way towards making your home seem more welcoming and inviting.
