Renovating your home can be stressful for you and your wallet. If the overall quality of your home is deteriorating, then it’s time to plan your next remodeling project. Here are some ways to tell when it’s time to have your home renovated.
Your Roof Is Leaking
It’s not fun to hear water dripping late at night or to wake up to brown water stains on your ceiling. Leaks in your roof can mean the roof is old and has rotted away. It could also mean that the roofer you hired didn’t do a good job. Either way, your roof needs to be replaced.
Do you still have popcorn ceilings from decades past? Then your ceilings are due for an update as well. Popcorn ceilings are more susceptible to leaks and water stains than other types of ceilings.
The Paint On Your Walls Is Chipping
Another clue that your home needs renovating is when the interior paint starts to chip. Many factors affect your walls such as dirt and the chemicals you use. Apply a fresh layer of paint to your walls on the inside and exterior of your home. Touch up your cabinets, drawers, and other areas in your kitchen and bathrooms.
Outdated Paint Colors
Outdated colors are one of the most noticeable signs that your home needs a renovation. You don’t want your home to look like it came out of a bad 80’s movie. Consider using timeless colors such as black, white, and gray. More homeowners are now choosing timeless palettes that add a very modern or minimalist look but still looks trendy.
The Plumbing Literally Stinks
When your bathroom smells like an old bathroom, then you know you have plumbing problems. It’s time to replace those old and rusty fixtures with modern fixtures that conserve water and express your sense of style. You should also replace the toilet’s wax seal and fix any other leaks that exist.
Your Entire Home Feels Outdated
If you’re seeing a lot of vintage finishes inside and outside your home, then it’s time to start a remodeling project to update it. Older homes may have brass or gold door handles or gold finishes everywhere. The bathrooms may have gold fixtures and faucets.
You can do this project yourself without the help of a contractor. You can replace your fixtures inexpensively thanks to home improvement stores and online websites. New fans and light fixtures can be easily found too. It’ll probably cost you less than $400 to make some of these improvements.
