Home improvement projects are a fun and fantastic way to get the most enjoyment out of your house! There are a lot of simple, basic things that you can do to make it the home of your dreams.
You can make your ceilings look higher than they actually are by using two tips. Paint stripes in the room or add a floor lamp. This will make an optical illusion in the room. Paint the ceiling a lighter color, off white to make it appear higher and keep the room brighter. Darker colors tend to close the room in, so keep the ceiling lighter than the walls.
You might already have great hardwood floors under the carpet in your house. If so remove the carpet and sand and refinish them. You could end up with beautiful wood floors for a lot less than you envisioned.
Replacing old solid flat faced closet doors through out the whole house with new six panel by folds or six panel doors changes the whole look of the house. they are easy to install and not too costly. In most cases the new doors will fit right into the old space with minimal work.
Move your furniture away from the walls to make a room look bigger. This makes it seem that the room is larger while giving it a more modern and contemporary ambiance. Of coarse you can only do this if the room is big enough to allow this.
Don’t forget about landscaping when planning your home improvements projects. The first thing a person sees upon approaching your home is the lawn, the entire house seems impressive if you have a nice lawn. From personal experience, one of the best things that I ever did to my house was to have the yard re-sodded, it just added a whole different look to the entire house and it was not that expensive, especially if you can hire someone from a sod farm to do the work you can save a lot. On the other hand if you want to do it yourself, just have the sod delivered right to your home and lay it yourself its not that difficult to do. Of coarse removing the old lawn is where all the work is. Find a handyman to do this part of the job.
