Renovating Your Home: 5 Quick Wins

Nashville’s real estate market is booming. Homeowners all over the city are remodeling their houses and making investments to improve their property values. Now is the time!

If you’re pressed for time or money, you might not have the resources to join in the fun and remodel your home. That can make for some spring-time blues as your friends begin the beautification process. We understand, and we’re here to help.

Here are a few low-commitment / low-cost ideas for ways to renovate and revolutionize your home. Make 2017 a year of change!

1. Get Organized

It’s incredible what a little organization can do for your home. But the longer you put it off, the more daunting this task becomes. Break the cycle of messiness! Pick a weekend and dive in!

Organizing your house might not seem like much of a renovation, but don’t underestimate it. For the less fastidious among us, implementing an organizational system can be revolutionary! Just give it a try and see what happens when you reclaim your home from messiness.

2. Rearrange Your Furniture

If you want to reinvent your home, rearranging is a great way to go about it. Drastic rearranging can make your home feel new once again. So start thinking about ways that you could rearrange the furniture that you already have and repurpose the spaces in your house. The best part about this is that it’s FREE!

However, if you’ve got the budget for it, consider buying that additional piece of furniture that you’ve been contemplating. Maybe it’s another arm chair. Maybe it’s an island for your kitchen. Having more to work with might help you in your rearranging efforts.

3. Get A New Coat Of Paint

Paint the inside of your home! You don’t have to paint your whole house; just choose one room! A new coat of paint can give your home an entirely different feel. If there are vestigial colors on your walls from the previous owners, get rid of them. Make the space your own.

Of course, painting will cost some money. So if you’re going to spend money, make sure that you get it right the first time around so that you won’t need to repeat (and pay for) the process again later.

4. Change The Lighting

Lighting has a massive but often unnoticed effect on the aura of your home. Poor lighting can make your eyes tired and give you a headache, which will only perpetuate your fatigue at the end of a long day. Swapping your lighting fixtures out can, quite literally, help you see you home in a new light. (Get it?)  

As you consider how you want to change the lighting in your home, consider how much natural light each space already gets. Natural light is good. You will want to preserve this and choose a lighting scheme to compliment it.

5. Install New Floors

Renovating your house does not need to be a daunting, anxiety-inducing, bank-breaking task. You can make progress towards your goals today by choosing small pieces of your home to remodel. Continue from there, addressing each piece of your home, one at a time.

If you’re wondering where to start, how about with your floors? Floors lay the foundation for the experience that you have in your home. They combine aesthetics with function in a way that very few other features of a home do. Picking the right flooring can be a game changer, so why not let us help?
