Smaller Remodeling Fixes That Can Transform Your Home

Construction & Contractors Blog

When you think of home remodeling, you might imagine someone tearing down a wall to put on a major expansion. But not every home remodeling job has to be dramatic in order to transform the look and feel of your house. If you'd like to change things up without tearing the entire place down, here are some smaller remodeling jobs that can make a big impact on the visual appeal of your home.

Switch Out the Lights

No, we don't just mean changing lightbulbs. If you have major light fixtures in your foyer, kitchen or elsewhere, changing the overall design or form of lighting can cast a new, well, light on the entire area. Maybe it's time for a new chandelier to welcome people to your home above the foyer. Maybe some softer lighting will add appeal to your bedroom or family room. Install new light fixtures in key parts of your kitchen to get a better look at what you're doing over the stove or while washing the dishes.

Keep Your Junk Off the Floor

If you feel like there's always stuff ending up on the floor or a random table because you don't have enough organizing space, it's time to change that. Hire a remodeling contractor to redesign your pantry or any closet where you could use some additional shelves. Try a vertical shelf for items that have never fit on a horizontal one. Add storage space to your laundry area to keep your detergent, fabric softener and other important items all organized and in one spot. Add shelving to your garage to keep the area clutter-free and leave behind the days where you have to be careful not to bump into something with your car.

A Fresh Coat of Paint Can Work Wonders

If you don't have the money to add brand new fixtures or additions to your house, maybe consider just changing the color of your interior instead? A remodeling contractor can do paintwork or add new wallpaper to help add a new visual vibe. Do you have a room where the furniture no longer matches the walls? Leave the furniture there but switch out the wallpaper and you'll have a much easier and possibly less expensive fix for your problem.

A local remodeling contractor can help you switch up the look and feel of your home, even if you don't have a huge budget. Contact a local expert today for more information. Companies like Kavin Construction can help.

Construction Needs in Times of Disaster

I live in the middle of the desert, so I never thought that flooding would be a problem. However, a few months ago my town was hit with a huge storm. These freak storms are called "Hundred Year Storm" because the chances of them happening are once in a hundred years. Needless to say, no one was prepared for the aftermath--especially not the city sewage system. All this extra water had no where to go, and suddenly, I found my basement flooded. It wasn't a fun experience, but we dealt with it the best we could. Since then, I have spent a lot of time looking into different options for sewage, water lines, and other related things. We're now even looking into building a new house. This blog is the result of my ongoing research.
