Calgary Renovations Need Not Be Costly; Some Minor Touches Can Go Big
Remodeling one’s home need not have to be large-scale or expensive. Room-by-room renovations in Calgary may require some small touches that can go a long way in drastically shifting the aesthetic and monetary value of your home in your favour. Yahoo Homes reminds how some small but smart changes can create that big bang for the buck.
“According to Remodeling Magazine‘s 2014 Cost vs Value report, projects like replacing your front door, doing some kitchen rehab or building a deck can make a big impact on your home value without making a big impact on your wallet. Minor, inexpensive fixes, done the right way, can dazzle buyers and make your whole home seem more modern, updated and expensive.”
Some of these astute changes include replacing your wooden door with steel, which is primarily chosen for safety measures, but is also, in fact, energy-efficient as it effectively traps cool air indoors when it’s warm outside, and vice versa. In the bathroom, you can use a more harmonizing color palette to spice up the space, or try replacing the wooden vanity tops with stone (like granite), which always appeals to home buyers. The remodeling changes should be undertaken with this pragmatic approach in mind: to recoup renovation costs when it is time to sell the house. Inexpensive minor touches can boost your home’s value if you stay true to basic design principles.
For interior colour trends, 2014 will see the rise in popularity of blues. For walls, pale white is a thing of the past – the year will show a lot more dramatic and glamorous walls contrasting with foreground furnishings in colour and texture.
Dark, moody walls may be designed as perfect backdrops for metallic furnishings trending today. For tech-savvy homeowners, the addition of the U-plugs (house sockets with two built-in USB ports for charging mobile devices) is in. For starters, get in touch with accredited Calgary renovation companies, such as Proflex Contracting Ltd, to help you with design concepts and general project planning decisions.
