The fear of not having enough money to face the reform of a home or lack of time paralyses many owners to perform a renovation to the house. But it is possible to make small renovations that bring great improvements with little effort and without scratching your pocket a lot: put vinyl coatings, anti-damp paint, line the kitchen furniture with gloss or matte vinyl, or paint the walls of the bathroom with synthetic enamels.
Remember that if you want to move and are worried about your belongings you should contact Adelaide Furniture Removals and have peace of mind knowing your goods are in the hands of truly experienced experts.
1.- Before beginning the renovation, the strengths and weaknesses of the home should be analysed, such as isolation, ducts or lighting require special attention. It is also interesting to consider the aesthetic that one wants to give and all those details that are sought inside a house. For this, it is necessary to prepare a concrete project, which perfectly fits our needs and budget, and thus avoid future mistakes. In case that what we want to do exceeds our capacity to carry it out, it is advisable to ask for help from a professional. It is convenient to request a detailed budget from several professionals and compare prices. Although it may seem that hiring an expert will make reform more expensive, your advice can save us money
2.- At present there are new materials that facilitate the renovation of spaces, to the point of being able to avoid the works completely: vinyl coatings, anti-damp paint, PVC materials, etc., are some examples with which today can renovate a house without facing debris and endless and expensive works
Painting is the ideal instrument to give a fresh look to homes in an economical and simple way. Also, with the painting you can improve any room, making it more pleasant, giving light or expanding spaces.
3.- One of the drawbacks that most concerns a second-hand home is the condition of the pipes. If these are copper or iron, the oldest, it is convenient to check both the flow of water and its status. If the pipes are visible, they can be replaced without lifting the floor. A satisfactory solution to renew the appearance of exterior pipes can be to paint the same colour as the wall or camouflage them with a tall piece of furniture that will act as a parapet for the vertical pipes.
It is also possible to regenerate the poor condition of the pipes by means of solutions that do not require replacement. The most innovative option is to apply a layer of special resin, covering the inside of the old pipe, this way a second pipe is created through which the water will circulate free of any metallic waste
- – Give a fresh look to the kitchen and leave it nice and cosy with little budget, it is possible with these tips. The cabinets can be lined with glossy or matt vinyl, the specialised stores offer a wide range of these materials that, combined with the antique furniture, will completely change the aesthetics of an old kitchen. The same goes for the walls, replacing the tiles is expensive and cumbersome, on the contrary, they can be renewed by painting them, applying a resistant paper or a special vinyl that will also cover any damage.
5.- One of the most common renovations and that more possibilities presents is that of the bathroom. No need for big works and expense, we can leave it as new if we tune the walls with synthetic enamels or papers and vinyls resistant to moisture. For floors, there is a good offer of paints and coatings on the market that are easy to place on top of the tiles and imitate all types of material, they are also warmer, easier to maintain and cheaper
If we want to enlarge the bathroom space, it is best to replace the bathtub with a shower tray. Instead of furniture, we can install shelves or shelves, they are cheaper and do not go out of style
As for the toilets, if they are not broken or in poor condition, a good measure to update them may be to change the faucet of the sink and shower, and in the case of the toilet, replace the lid with a more modern one. In addition, there are specific paintings that we can use to give them a better look.
6.- Replacing doors and windows is one of the most expensive sections in the reform of a house. If they really are in poor condition, we must consider replacing them. If it is only necessary to give a new air to the doors, it will be enough to coat them. The semi-lacquer is easier to apply with a roller and is even more economical. As for the colour, white or the same as the wall, they represent a sure hit
The windows will look like new if your frames are sanded and painted. You can also place curtains, which in addition to changing the appearance of the room will serve as insulators to avoid excess cold or heat
7.- Getting the right amount of lighting from the beginning throughout the house helps to give a new and more comfortable air. Properly distribute lamps, spotlights and their points of light, will also help reduce the cost of electricity
The mirrors also play a significant role when it comes to expanding a space and giving it more depth or to provide more light an area that is darker
8.- The living room is the main room of the house and where we can let our imagination fly when planning a reform. If the house has a living room, it can be separated without lifting a partition, simply place a mobile screen, a rigid curtain or a sliding door, to achieve a “wall effect” that will be reversible to bring the two spaces together what do you want
