Choosing the best flooring is one important decision to make when building or renovating your home. Proper flooring can either make or break the over-all look and feel of your new or renovated space. Oftentimes, proper flooring can also ensure the safety of people, especially the little children, living in a house.
There are a number of factors to take into consideration in deciding which type of flooring best suits your living area. Here is my list:
Some types of flooring are more costly compared to others and it is best to set a specific budget for your flooring requirements. This will help you decide on which types of flooring to check out and avoid. Depending on the budget you set, you can either opt for high-end top quality flooring alternatives or choose the more economical ones that are easy on your wallet.
Of course, to give you more value for your money, you can always check more stores to compare prices and be on the lookout for warehouse or outlet sales and carefully time your purchases around them to score bigger discounts.
As your family gets bigger and you start to accumulate more things, you will notice that you may be running out of space. There is only so long that you can put things in the attic or in the garage before it becomes too much.
What you need to do is try to create more space in your home. You can do this in many ways, but, there are some pointers you should remember to get the most out of your extra space.
Get Creative in the Bathroom
When it comes to the bathroom, there are often multiple products kept in there as well as towels and other cleaning products. Because a lot of bathrooms don’t offer a lot of storage, it can be difficult to find the additional space you need.
One way you can create more room is to utilize under your sink area by adding storage such as a cupboard. You can also use the space above the sink and beside the toilet to store toilet rolls and other toiletries.
Despite what you see in those house flipping shows online, most home improvement projects are far simpler than taking out walls or installing new cabinetry. You can improve aspects of your home’s comfort and looks with easy projects that will fit into your weekend plans. Whether you want the outside or the inside to be a little better, these home improvement projects are doable even for DIY novices.
Paint Your Front Door
A very simple way to improve curb appeal is to paint your front door. Check your HOA for any off-limit colors, then have fun choosing something bright. Many homes painted simple colors like white, beige, or brown look great with a blue, green, or even red front door. Replacing your front door is another home improvement project. It’s a little more complicated, but if you’ve got a helper you can replace that door in an afternoon. Paint the new door a fun color or get an attractive wreath to hang on it. Voila, you’ve improved your curb appeal with very little effort.
Improve Your Air Quality
When people think of home improvement, a home’s looks come to mind first. Air quality is just as important to comfort. Spend a home improvement day doing little projects that will improve your indoor air quality. First, get a MERV 10 or higher HVAC air filter. Change your filter, then mark your calendar each month, so you remember to change it again. Then get some house plants like spider plants and peace lilies known for improving air quality. If you love candles, make sure only to burn beeswax candles, since they lack the harmful chemicals other candle wax contains.
