Spring Renovations: 5 Ways to Refresh Your Home
The sun is shining and the snow is melting, it’s time to refresh our homes, but beyond spring cleaning are you considering a home renovation? Springtime is perfect for joy and love and that should be reflected in how you feel about your home. So if you aren’t in love with your home or don’t find yourself feeling joyful at home it may be time for a renovation. North Canadian Construction is here to offer some suggestions on how we can help you spring into action.
There is nothing more indicative of spring than colour, all the bright green foliage and colourful flora, this is why as it warms up outside we often want to brighten and warm up our homes. Adding colour to your home is a great way to do so and there are some springs trends in renovations we think are particularly interesting:
- Shimmery Flooring & Tiles/ Glitter Grout
- Ice Cream Colours
- Warmer Kitchens
- Gold Accents
- Aesthetic Storage
- Have Your Carpets Lost Their Magic?
By swapping out carpets for hardwood not only are you improving the cleanliness of your home, especially if you have kids and pets. Speaking of pets, your new hardwood won’t trap dust, pollen and allergens so commonly associated with spring but there are so many pros vs cons associated with carpets vs hardwood. You could also go for laminate floors, bamboo flooring, tiles (porcelain/ceramic/marble/slate), linoleum, there are also hardwood alternatives to explore in the pursuit of avoiding carpets.
- Oh The Pane of Old Windows
You want to see the beauty of spring don’t you, what better way than with new windows. Not only do new windows increase the levels of natural light in your home and other benefits but new windows increase the energy efficiency, insulation and R-rating of your home, which means when winter rolls around again you won’t be cold-shouldered. Not to mention with the savings on your energy bill new windows practically pay for themselves.
- Kitchen Update
The hearth is the heart of the home and because the kitchen is the modern equivalent to the hearth (space where cooking is done), that’s why investing in your kitchen is a great way to increase value in your home. This is why renovating your kitchen is one of the largest projects you can embark upon. It doesn’t always have to be however, you can do simple things like painting cupboards, walls and even appliances to refresh the looks of your kitchen.
When spring arrives we often get this need to nest or spring clean our homes, and this brings to light our storage needs. The best part is if you don’t have the budget to invest in some luxury storage solutions, there are DIY options for anyone who is handy!
If you find that our suggestions have gotten you so excited you wet your plants you may be ready for a spring renovation.
