Small Project, Huge Impact: How Small Home Remodeling Changes Can Make A Big Difference
A remodel doesn’t have to be ‘huge’ to make a massive difference to the look and feel of your home. Just because you don’t need or want a whole house to remodel doesn’t mean you can’t make significant improvements to your home. In fact, some smaller remodels and changes can give the highest returns on investment of any remodel project. Here we look at some of the small homes remodel changes that make a big difference.
Updated Kitchen Cabinetry
Kitchens are still prime real estate for high value remodels. Kitchen cabinets can take up a lot of visual space in the kitchen, so merely updating, replacing or painting your kitchen cabinets can make a huge difference to the look of your kitchen in a short amount of time. Your design-build firm can even help you find creative and innovative ways to use the cabinet space you have to allow you to access even more storage.
Replacing Kitchen Countertops
Kitchen countertops are another large surface area in the kitchen and make a significant difference to the appearance and atmosphere of the kitchen. While marble is always popular for kitchen countertops, quartz is rapidly becoming a favorite. Your design-build firm can even help you choose unique countertop materials such as glass, metal, concrete, stone, or salvaged wood.
New Shower Doors
Another top location for high value remodels is the bathroom. Installing a new shower is a small update that can make a huge difference to the appearance and comfort of your bathroom. New shower doors or a new shower enclosure is a small and time efficient update that can transform your bathroom.
New Faucets and Sinks
In both the kitchen and bathroom, new faucets and sinks are an update that takes minimal time to install, but that completely changes the look in your bathroom and kitchen, while also changing the performance of the space.
New appliances or fittings in the kitchen can be added gradually or replaced in one fell swoop, adding a more modern and updated look to your kitchen with better performance.
The backsplash is another aspect of the kitchen that can absorb a lot of visual space. An updated backsplash can transform the look of the kitchen, particularly when combined with new cabinets, countertop or a fresh coat of paint.
Garage Door Replacement
A garage door replacement can be surprisingly quick, easy and high in value, completely changing the curb appeal and exterior appearance of your home.
Window replacements can surprisingly provide one of the highest returns on investment of any home update. Upgrading to energy efficient windows has a multitude of benefits, including improved thermal efficiency for your home, improved home appearance and comfort and added value to your home. Your design-build firm can help you enlarge existing windows or install new windows while maintaining the structural integrity of your home.
Fresh Coat of Paint
A fresh coat of paint, either inside or outside can really brighten up and update any space, and the size of the project is as big as you want to make it.
Adding dimmers, upgrading to more energy-efficient lighting, replacing light fittings or even installing tube skylights can be jobs that only take a day, and yet can make a significant impact on the energy efficiency and appeal of your home.
It’s not just the inside of your home that can benefit from small makeovers. A repaired and cleaned or replaced driveway, updated landscaping and new front door are only minor changes that can change the appearance and curb appeal of your home.
