Forget the normal bathroom, get a home spa

Do a kitchen makeover

A typical family spends a lot of time in the kitchen. The kitchen has become a great bonding place for many families. Remodel your kitchen to make it user-friendly for all the family members.

If for example, you do not have a kitchen island, consider putting one in. Not only does it give you an additional surface for prepping your meals, but it is a place where the family can congregate to talk or for a quick meal.

Other remodeling ideas include putting in more cabinets, a fresh coat of paint, and tile replacement around the kitchen sink, among others.

Convert unused spaces

Do have an attic or basement that you only use for storage? If there is, there is so much more you can do with it. Start by clearing out what is in the storage. If it is trash, toss it out. If it is old stuff, have a yard sale or donate to charity.

Next, decide what you want to do with space. You can use it to create a home office, home gym, study area, family room, among others.

Ensure that the plumbing works and that the rooms are well insulated.

Set up a Smart home

With the advancement in technology, several smart devices will make your life so much simpler. We now have home alarm systems that you can monitor remotely. Other smart home features include smart lights, smart locks, smart thermostats, and smart humidifiers, among others.

The advantage of a smart home is that even if you are not around, you can give the impression that you are home. A burglar is not likely to try and access a home that has some activity going on. If you have a smart TV, set it to go on and off at a particular time. Smart bulbs will come on when darkness begins to fall and go off in the morning.

If you have kids, setup baby monitors with video surveillance, so that wherever you are, you know your kids are safe.

Bring color into your house

2019 is the time to get creative on your color palettes. Forget about the safe, muted colors. Try the richer hues available including red, pink, and blue, green among others. Your house will look bold and inviting. Don’t be surprised if your close family members borrow a few tips from your use of color.

The best part about it, with a little skill training you can do the job on your own. Also, consider making it a fun family activity so that everyone feels a part of the process.

Utilize Dead Space

There are spaces in the house that one can consider dead space. One such area is that space under the staircase. There are so many uses you can have for it.

Get your local artisan to design a unique bookshelf, or use the area to display keepsakes or souvenirs.

Depending on the space available, you can fit in a stylish office desk, thereby giving you a place to do your work.

Another way to utilize the space is by getting stylish cabinets put in, thereby giving you great storage space. Alternatively, have the artisan design a unique shoe rack that fits right under the stair.

Of course, some of these ideas can only apply depending on where the staircase is. If example, it cuts across the living room, then maybe a shoe rack would not work. A bookshelf, on the other hand, would be a great idea.

Final Thoughts

The whole idea behind remodeling your house is to give you a comfortable, livable space. Whatever changes you make should improve the value of the house while giving you functionality. Plus, it might be a prudent idea to acquire a depreciation schedule.

You can use a contractor to do the remodeling, or you can take on some of the jobs yourself. If you decide on the latter, only take on jobs that you can do, because the cost of repairs may not be cheap.
