Remodeling your home is done for many reasons; you could be selling your house and want to increase its value, or you just moved into a new house that requires a lot of maintenance.
What better way to do that than flip through endless furniture catalogs and magazines, hire up some contractors or interior designers, and give your home a makeover.
Below are some unique renovating ideas that you can give your home.
Tips before Renovation
Before getting started on your dream home renovation, there are a few factors that you need to consider.
You can remodel in two ways; either DIY with a few trusted friends, but this process might take time, or ideally, hire contractors according to the neighborhood you live in.
If you live in California, then you’re in luck. California is booming with highly rated remodeling contractors.
You can give your home a ‘Hollywood’ makeover.
Either way, bear in mind that remodeling takes a lot of time, so if you’re renovating your kitchen or bathroom, there’s a chance you might need to leave your home for a place that has running water till it’s done.
Optimize the Space under the Stairs
There are many unique remodeling methods you can apply for the space under the stairs.
Create an elegant or trendy bookcase, or storage shelves to display some pictures and plants. You can also turn it into a mini wine cellar or a small reading nook with comfy cushions.
Or use them as storage spaces with pull-out drawers to store any important items.
Add Sunken Seating Areas
Sunken seating areas, or a living room pit, can be a gorgeous addition to your living room.
With steps leading you to a cozy and comfy rounded or square seating area, your guests will be encouraged to engage in this unique and sophisticated living room.
This sunken area feels open, spacious, and inviting.
Sunken areas aren’t only for the living room, they can be applied in your backyard as well.
This outdoor patio seating arrangement will be even more perfect if you place a sophisticated mini fire place in the middle.
Skip out on Traditional Kitchens
Kitchens are one of the most important rooms in your house, so for a unique and show-stopping look, opt to get a little creative and stay away from traditional design elements.
With cabinets, choose brighter colors to make your kitchen livelier like hues of blues or greens with brass handles and faucets.
You can always go for an open shelf plan for a rustic feel. Choose a funky pattern for your backsplash to go with your design, instead of a plain one.
Or, you can always decide on tiling your kitchen with patterned ceramic tiles or even paint the ceiling a dramatic pattern; both add flair to your kitchen.
Create a bench-style dining nook that doubles up as a kitchen island as well.
Create a Spa-like Bathroom
If the space allows it, create a luxurious home-spa bathroom! Choose elegant and neutral-colored tiles, opt for a floating vanity with a bold color, and play around with some plants and artwork.
You can also choose a gorgeous stand-alone bathtub with claw feet that will give your bathroom a royal feel. Create a walk-in shower with a variety of water jets or a rainfall showerhead.
A Much Needed Makeover
There comes a time when a remodel is needed. Often at times, people renovate their home by the book and use traditional remodeling techniques.
Consider going a little wild with unique and trendy ideas, like those mentioned above and many others, to truly give your home a one of a kind look with a cozy and luxurious feel.
After all, how many times do you get to remodel in a lifetime?
