Make Your Home Attractive With These 5 Remodeling Ideas

Thinking about your next big remodelling project? Before you tax your head and your eyes with an endless browsing of design ideas, you’ll need to have a clearer idea of just what you would like to change or upgrade this time round. Are you looking to do most of the work or are you going to seek the help of professionals? There’s obviously a more serious side to remodelling than just picking out what you like, but let’s enjoy the fun part of this process as you consider these few fantastic options for remodelling your interiors.

Use Crown Mouldings:

 IMG 1Crown molding styles are literally the ultimate representation of trims. Reaching high up in our homes on our walls, ceilings and cabinetry, this structural element has always been a familiar face in many homes and public establishments. From simple cove crown mouldings to elaborate plaster-cast cuttings, this is one feature that has evolved over the years to suit both our tastes and budgets. Alex Mouldings offered modern crown molding designs that can be perfect with your home interior.

Get a New Coat of Paint

 Paint doesn’t last forever, but that can be fun as you choose the next colour to put up in your home. Wear and tear on our interiors come in the form of cleaning substances and the dirt and dust that permeates our homes on a daily basis. You can choose to repaint an entire room with a fresh coat of paint or you can choose to retain one wall as a key feature and add some interest to an otherwise normal room.

Depending on your preferences, you might just want to scout around for some old-goodies (whether in your own home or at flea markets). Vintage pieces in good condition will definitely give your interior an instant upgrade. Lamps and other decorative elements are usually the easiest to install or add-on, but you can also look out for some heavier elements like an old wardrobe or even a whole door to give your entire place a brand new feel.

Install Wainscoting Panels

 IMG 2If you’re looking for a sophisticated finish for your interior walls, you’ll definitely have to consider wainscoting panels. Popular since the Colonial and Victorian era, this long-lasting addition not only delivers a polished persona in any home, it’s also useful for protecting our walls from various nicks and bumps and providing a layer of insulation during those cold, winter days.

Put Up a New Backsplash

 Looking for something to protect your kitchen walls from splatters and splashes? There are a few options you can consider for your kitchen backsplash; namely tiles, panels, and even glass. Not only can it change the feel of your entire kitchen, it can also act as a feature wall if needed. Depending on the material of your choice, you can choose to install it on your own or you might have to enlist some professional help.

There are many ways to add texture to our walls, one of which would be the application of wallpaper. Not only can you install this all on your own, it’s actually more cost-effective compared to paint as it is known to be able to last up to three times longer. Another bright side to using wallpaper is that the thickness of the material helps to smooth over any uneven wall surfaces and helps to hide imperfections.

Try Out Some Tiles

 IMG 3Tiles are definitely a versatile addition in any interior or exterior. Ranging from glossy 1” x 1” to natural cuts of gigantic proportions, you’ll probably be shocked at the amount of choices you have the next time you decide to use this element in your home. If you’re thinking of tiling up your walls, two general locations would usually be the kitchen and bathroom. The use of water in these two places makes it logical to consider using water-resistant tiles to protect our interior walls.
