You keep saying that you’re going to switch out the cabinets in your kitchen, or retile the bathroom, or finally repaint the living room once and for all. Whether you magically need to add a closet where there isn’t one or you want to make small adjustments such as upgrading your shower head, right now is the time to start. Call it a pledge for self-care or adding a New Year’s resolution to the list. So, pick up that phone to call Mr. Build It because your home deserves a little more love this year. Here are a few clever ways to spruce up your home.
1. Renovate the bathroom—but don’t move the pipes
Renovating your bathroom can get pretty expensive. There the requisite plumbing and electric work, a fresh coat of paint, and new tile. However, there is one update that could send you over your budget in a blink. One way you can prevent this is to not rearrange the entire layout of your bathroom.
2. Do not underestimate the power of paint.
As always paint does wonders. A few coats of paint can take instantly cheer things up and bounce around more light.
3. Embrace the breakfast nook.
Allow just enough room in your kitchen renovation to incorporate a snug breakfast nook, complete with marble tabletops and oak benches. The overall depth should be enough room to sit your family comfortably. A welcoming and undeniably elegant breakfast nook will achieve the perfect balance of practicality and polish.
4. Do subway tile differently.
There is no need to opt for basic horizontal subway tile if you wish for more movement. The classic subway title design is typically stacked in uniform-laid horizontally and off-center. That’s as classic as it gets. But if your someone who wants to jazz up the design a little bit there are many ways to reinvent it. It’s really as simple as playing with the color of ceramic, the shade of grout, or the way you rearrange the pieces.
5. Switch up your backsplash.
Somewhere along the way, you decided to install tile in your kitchen backsplashes. There are a ton of chic ways to give your kitchen’s background an update. For example, you can bolt pieces of glass on top of a fun wallpaper for a one-of-a-kind backsplash. Or if you want a more clean and crisp look, install painted shiplap behind the countertops.
6. Rethink awkward nooks.
Sometimes full renovation isn’t necessary when your home had good bones. It’s as simple as adding a new piece of furniture to totally change the awkward entry hall.
7. Install marble floors.
Although this may sound like a luxury, if you search around you may be able to find enough scraps to make your own. A marble floor may sound like a complete extravagance for your everyday home, but there is a practical and stunning way to go about it. Use pieces that are materially unique and create a unique floor design.
8. Fix up the laundry room.
If your someone who is lucky enough to have an at-home laundry room, then give it some love every now and then. You want your laundry room to standout like the rest of your home. You want it to feel fresh and approachable but also add a unique twist. Maybe throw up some fun wallpaper or find some cool hardware to dress up your cabinets with.
