Our homes are very important to us, not only because we live there, but because it is our safe zone, somewhere where we feel secure and where we spend our free time. Because of this, we are always trying to find the newest way of further improving our home in order to make our lives more comfortable and more convenient, and small changes can help us create a more positive environment, but it is your decision to make where you should invest into. No matter what you do, have in mind that any investment into your home will certainly be worth it, and it will increase the overall value of the property, which can come in handy later on, if you decide to sell it or rent it.
1. Bathroom Renovation
Bathrooms are usually neglected when it comes to redecorating your home, as they are considered to be a low traffic area, unlike dining rooms or living rooms where people are constantly present. But despite this, having a nice, spacious bathroom can really improve the overall comfort inside your home, not to mention that it can make your short stay there a more pleasant one. When we do the math, about one and a half years of our life (on average) is spent in the bathroom, which is not something that we can take lightly. You can change anything you want there: the colors of the walls, broken tiles, leaky faucets or decorations. Changing the space dedicated to you bathroom will require a bit more planning and a lot more money. But some small changes can be done easily, for example, buying some high-quality faucets, or having a shower installed instead of an old-fashioned bathtub. Bring some technology into your bathroom and think about dimmable lights, which can perfectly set the mood for you to relax in. Waterproof speakers are also a good idea – you can play your favorite music while showering.
2. Put Your Attic to a Good Use
If you are lucky enough to have a big attic, then you should have no trouble in deciding that you should improve around your house. An attic can serve many purposes, mostly, it can be a whole other room, which you can use as a study room, as an entertainment room or your personal office space. It can even serve you as an additional storage space, but it would be a much wiser solution to turn it into something more practical. If you had some insulation place to keep it cool during the summer and warm during winter, it can be a perfect room to spend your time in. Furthermore, an attic can also serve as an excellent room for your children, or you can turn it into a gaming space that you have always wanted. Just do not use it for disposing of things you do not need, as it can quickly turn into a room full of mold which can both be a health hazard and a waste of perfectly good space.
3. A Livelier Living Room
The living room is probably the biggest challenge for any homeowner on one hand, there are so many things that you can improve, or buy, that can change the overall look, but you wouldnt want to create the Frankensteins monster and have different styles combined in a small space. Common ideas include having a few more bookshelves placed, as books not only give a nice impression but they also give a relaxing touch to the overall feeling in the room, making it easier for people to talk and truly enjoy themselves. Lighting is also important, and having only one source of light is simply not enough. You want to have the biggest windows possible to let in the natural light during the day, but during the night, you would want to have at least one lamp that can create the mood in your living room. Anytime you have guests, you can set the light intensity as needed, and it would be advisable to have light dimmers installed, so that you can alone decide whether you need a lot of light so that you and your friends can play board games, or a dimmed atmosphere where you can have a romantic dinner with your beloved.
