Kitchens and bathrooms often top the list in any home renovation project. According to a review journal, the kitchen is the most used room in a house. It is the first thing that homebuyers scrutinise whenever they are buying a house, so a well-designed and updated kitchen can increase the value of your home.
Equally important and next to the kitchen is the bathroom. A bathroom renovation can make a huge impact on your home’s value as well as your comfort level. Bathroom remodel involves changes to the size of the room, plumbing fixtures, and finishes.
One problem that most people have with their kitchen that pushes them to renovate is lack of prep space and storage. Cooking in a cramped space can be challenging and messy. But by doing space adjustments and remodelling to your kitchen, you can make cooking easier and a little more enjoyable.
Moving your kitchen to a different location in your home
If you can find a better location, moving your kitchen to a different area in your home can be an excellent way to remodel your kitchen, especially when the current location does not allow reconfiguring the layout or does not have ample space for extensions. Moving your kitchen will instantly transform your home. In moving kitchens, most people opt to have theirs situated near their backyard so that they can open their big doors and windows and create an indoor-outdoor kitchen and dining experience which is ideal when hosting family and friends.
Tear down walls to connect kitchen to dining room
Tearing down walls is a simple solution for expanding your space. Tearing down the wall that separates your kitchen from your dining area will give you more space to move around. You can also always use the dining table as a prep station for your cooking. Moving dishes from the kitchen to the dining table is also easier especially if you are prepping for a big feast.
Add additional counter space and a breakfast nook
If you do not want to have a major kitchen renovation but you need additional space, a good compromise is to build additional counter space to serve as a prep area. The new counter space can be added as an extension to your current one, or build a new kitchen island that can also serve as a breakfast nook.
Tired of your bathroom’s dirty tiles? Do you need new fixtures or a fresh coat of paint? Whether you’re renovating to upgrade your bathroom or out of necessity such as to resolve a faulty plumbing, here are some renovation ideas that may inspire you.
Build an ensuite bathroom
Building an ensuite bathroom, especially for the master bedroom, will not only be practical, but it can also raise the value of your property since people nowadays prefer having a private ensuite. Building an ensuite is a big construction project that requires professional plumbers and electricians working with your contractor. This requires planning and careful execution to avoid safety hazards like leaking pipes or mishaps like no water coming out of your shower.
Add a bathtub or a shower
After a tiring day, we all can’t wait to go home and soak in a tub or have a beautiful, hot shower. Depending on what you need and what your space allows, you can choose from the standard bathtub to the innovative ones like the walk-in tub and the whirlpool spa tub. Showers also range from the standard overhead to new ones like the walk-in shower and the digital shower.
Replace or repair broken tiles
Damaged bathroom tiles and stained grouts are not only unappealing to look at, but they grow moulds which we all know is bad for our health. It’s always good to repair cracked tiles by sealing them so that the damage won’t spread and cause your tiling to fall apart. But if you choose to have your whole tiling replaced, why not try a different kind of floorings like vinyl tiles and hardwood flooring that are not only waterproof but also slip-resistant.
