Apartment renovation can be something truly outstanding, but only if you do it right. There are so many options to choose from and decisions to make it can sometimes seem a little overwhelming. Therefore, here are some smart apartment renovation tips that can help you achieve successfully attain the home of your dreams!
Use the 5 year rule
What is the five year rule you say? It’s actually quite simple – any items that you haven't made use of for at least five years should be donated or recycled. This is to minimise clutter and make your home feel new again. Trust me, its a simple, yet very effective!
Begin with inexpensive fixes
Clean windows, a new coat of paint and some new door knobs can do wonders to a tired old home. Painting is especially effective as it can completely transform the mood of a room, at a relatively low cost.
Check your appliances
Its always important to check out your appliances and other home machinery semi-regularly. This includes washers, dryers, central air conditioning, heated bathroom floors and dish washers. You might find that A: they're become faulty and potentially dangerous, or B: that they're a little outdated. Opting for newer, high tech appliances can not only make your life easier, but also increase the value of the property if you are wishing to sell.
Redo the bathroom?
Bathrooms are said to be the most financially beneficial room to renovate in the house. Why is that? For starters its one of the most used rooms in the home. Secondly, reinstalling the older plumbing reduces the chance of disasters such as burst pipes, which can be even more costly in the long run. So update your room with fixtures such as new tiles, modern tap ware and rain shower heads.
A kitchen renovation is another wonderful idea for any home renovator. You spend so much time in this room of the house, so its really worthwhile to play around with the layout of the space, and spending effort to make it as simple and helpful as possible. Replacing cabinetry is another costly, but very rewarding decision to make. Finally finish with some simple tasks such as cleaning out the oven, cleaning the floor and investing in new kitchen gadgets to vamp up the space.
