Simple Ways to Update Your Home
After you have lived in your home for a bit, you might feel like you want some change. You can easily freshen up your living spaces and make them more convenient, trendy, or functional than what currently exists. You do not need to do an entire overhaul of your home. Updating just a few items can make life a bit easier and/or aesthetically pleasing.
- Install a very large sink & helpful faucet in your kitchen. Even if it takes up some counter space, you will appreciate having a large sink for big pots and dishes. Add a foot pedal for the faucet. This is ideal for those who cook a lot with meats and do not want to touch surfaces in fear of spreading bacteria. By using a foot pedal, you can turn the water on with just a step of your foot. For those who prefer more technology in their home, a touch-less faucet is ideal and is now offered with most manufacturers.
- Add or change the blinds on a window to either block light or let more in your home. Update the look with shutters or a color that is on trend for the year.
- Change the hardware on your kitchen cabinets. The knobs and handles on your cabinets are like jewelry. They enhance the look of the cabinetry and add your personality into the kitchen. There are many finishes and styles of hardware. To make it easy, if you already have knobs, choose new knobs so that you do not need to drill another hole for handles. If you have handles, choose handles again, otherwise you will have to fill in the extra hole if you choose knobs.
- Add crown molding to a room. Crown molding adds an elegance and finished look to a room’s décor. There are many different sizes and profiles to select from. Paint or stain it the same color as the molding in the room to maintain a cohesive appearance. Both wood or polystyrene foam crown molding work in this application.
Changes such as these make an impact in a room’s design. They are relatively inexpensive and can be done as a weekend project. Come on in to Shell Lumber for the supplies needed to update your home.
