Redecorating a house can be a challenge and in some cases it can feel overwhelming. Redoing one room at a time can take some of the pressure off and let you focus on your vision for that particular room. Here are a few tips on a room-by-room basis.
Living Room – If you have hardwood floors you may want to consider putting some bamboo rugs down on the floor. They offer a modern look and protect the floors. If you are looking for new furniture, shop early as pieces will often have to be ordered. Don’t forget wall hangings, they can really add some dimension to a room.
Kitchen – Remodeling a kitchen is a big project so expect it to take at least a month or two depending on the scope of the project. Older cabinets can be made to look new with just a re-facing, this can save thousands of dollars. Set a budget and stick to it, adding expensive changes to the job is very easy when it comes to kitchens.
Bathrooms – A fresh coat of paint and changing your trims and accessories can really freshen up a bathroom. Adding a cheval mirror is a nice touch. If you are completely gutting the bathroom, figure at least two months to get the job done right.
Redoing a house can be difficult but when the job is done, you will be happy you spent the time.
