Bringing A Home Back To life One Room at A Time

Buying a home is a major investment. Most people work for years to afford the down payment on a home. Buying the perfect home can be pretty difficult, especially for first-time buyers. That means a fixer-upper may be the best choice. Many homeowners purchase a home that needs a little work their first time. With a little work, that home can increase in value and turn a tidy profit once it’s sold. The trouble is, home renovations can be very expensive. Hiring contractors for even the most basic renovations could end up costing the homeowner thousands of dollars. As an alternative, many homeowners decide to do the work themselves. This is a great way to improve a home and save money on major projects.

The key to home renovations is to start small. Beginning with the bathroom might be the best thing. There’s not much in the way of major renovations when it comes to fixing up a bathroom. Looking online for some bathroom remodeling ideas is a good place to start. Design magazines and hardware providers often have links and resources for homeowners to start with. The next thing to do is come up with a plan. It’s important to measure the room and figure out exactly where everything is going to go before starting the work. Cabinets and fixtures can be moved easily as long as the wires or plumbing won’t need to be moved. If any work requires penetrating the walls, a contractor will need to be hired.

When it comes to color, it’s recommended that homeowners use the sixty, thirty, ten rule. Sixty percent of the room should be the main color that inspires the overall feeling of the room. Thirty percent of the room should be the secondary color that brings out the primary color and helps direct the eyes to larger features. Ten percent of the room should be an accent color that makes the room pop and really brings out the smaller features of the room. Homeowners can find plenty of ideas online or by talking with their local service providers about how to get the most out of a small space.
