When you purchased your home, it was modern and stylish. Years, maybe even decades, have passed, but your home still seems to be stuck in the past. Or maybe it was an older home when you purchased it. Good news! You can enhance the look of your home by incorporating some minor home additions without having to do any major renovations. Here are some simple projects you can take on to bring your home into this era.
Don’t have the money or time for a major bathroom overhaul? No worries. A new coat of paint and updated fixtures can dramatically enhance this space. Start by painting the cabinets a dark color, like black, or staining them a deep brown, like mahogany. After this, switch out the fixtures, including the faucet, light switch and shower head, for a sleeker design.
A great way to transform the look of your kitchen without a lot of effort is to update the light fixtures. If your home is on the older side, there’s a good chance you have traditional recessed lighting. Add personality to the space and brighten it up with new pendant and wall-mounted fixtures. You also can use the cabinetry trick from the bathroom to update the kitchen.
You can revamp the look of a dull and boring basement with molding, both floor and crown. This style staple can add a look of sophistication while also making the space look more polished or finished. For a bolder look, consider having the molding painted in a contrasting color to the wall and don’t choose the same design for your floor molding as you do the crown molding.
If you want to enhance the look of your outdoor space, start with a focus on the deck. If the structure of your deck is still in good condition, consider updating the railing. For wood decks, a great update is the addition of a wood-iron or wood-glass railing system to add more style appeal. If not, a fresh coat of paint can go a long way.
With a little creativity, you can transform the look of your home without taking on a major renovation project. A contractor can further help you find unique ways to update your home. To get some ideas and quotes, call N&C Construction in McDonald, PA.
