May 3, 2022

If you’ve fallen out of love with your home, an expensive move isn’t the only way to get that spark back. Renovating the home you live in is a great way to make some changes that improve the aesthetic, and the flow, and increase your resale value.

However, renovations can be costly, time-consuming and frustrating. Not to mention there’s always the fear that your contractor will find something else that needs fixing thereby adding unexpected thousands of dollars to your total costs. That’s why small renovations in Vancouver for your home are the best way to go. If all you want is to freshen up the look of your home, here are a few simple and small changes that you do that will make a huge difference in the presentation of your home.

  1. Look Up at the Ceiling

You might not think of ceilings when you think of renovations, but before you write off the idea completely, take a look up. Are there cobwebs? Are the corners dusty? Is it still white? Not many of us take the time to clean the ceiling, but leaving it alone to collect dust and grime can make your room look darker. Give yours a good cleaning and then try comparing a before and after photo. See if you can spot a difference in the brightness of your room. Ceilings might not get much attention, but they can change the way a room is seen. Consider adding moulding, beams, and even a bright pop of colour to your ceiling for an instant upgrade.

  1. Kitchen Storage

Kitchen renovations are among the most popular with one of the most common complaints among homeowners being that their kitchen doesn’t have enough storage. You can create sleek and stylish storage solutions for a modest price by freeing up counter space to give your kitchen a more open feel. Floor to ceiling cupboards, rails, and a multi-useable kitchen island are just a few ways to add storage while upgrading the look at the same time.

  1. Add Decorative Flooring

Like the ceiling, adding some designs to your floor is a great way to spruce up a room. Floors typically get a little bit more attention than the ceiling does but it’s not the first thing that comes to mind when people think of renovating. If you want to give your room a dramatic makeover without spending too much, try adding tiles with a unique textured design or hardwood floors in a unique colour. Even a plain concrete floor with a beautiful decal can transform a space.

  1. Paint the Walls

One of the fastest and most common ways to change up a room is to paint the walls. This can be a fun weekend project to do with your partner or the whole family. Try choosing a bold colour to paint just one wall or add a large framed portrait for a pop of colour.

  1. Create Storage in the Entryway

The entryway sets the stage for your home. By adding deep storage benches for winter clothes, tall shoe racks and mirrors on closet doors, you can declutter the space and make your entryway more inviting.

  1. New Faucets

New faucets can give a bathroom or kitchen an instant facelift.
