The Least Expensive Remodeling Project is Refinishing!
Homeowners often feel frustrated when they’d like to remodel their home, but they just can’t afford it right now. Today we’re going to discuss things you can do to your home to achieve a feeling of accomplishment toward remodeling without actually changing the structure of your home. We’re going to talk about remodeling with paint.
New Kitchen Cabinets
Okay, no, not really new kitchen cabinets, but newly painted cabinets. Let us show you how we can refinish your cabinets and create an entirely new atmosphere in your kitchen with color. Take a look at our gallery of past work here. Scroll down to the heading Cabinet Refinishing for some great examples and ideas.
Paint the Walls
A fresh coat of paint does wonders for a dull or dated room. You may be surprised at how different your entire home will feel after repainting the walls throughout. Choose vibrant and exciting colors for areas of your home that should be filled with energy, such as the family room or a child’s playroom. Choose relaxing colors for the bedrooms and bathrooms, and colors that promote cleanliness and appetite in the kitchen and dining room.
Paint the Trim
Many homeowners don’t like the idea of painting their trim, and that’s completely understandable. We can skip this part if you prefer stained trim so the wood grain shows through. We will say, however, that painted trim adds a great deal of depth and intrigue to a room. You may choose to go with a nice medium neutral color for the walls and trim it with white for a classic, clean appearance. Door facings and windows really pop when you use white trim.
Paint Interior Doors
No homeowner’s manual anywhere says your interior doors must be wood grain or any specific color. Allow your children to choose the color for the interior of their bedroom door (that’s the side that faces the inside of their room). You can make the outward facing side of the door a color that goes well with the surrounding decor, or simply keep it wood grain and refinish it. Interior doors are relatively inexpensive and can be replaced easily if they’re damaged or if you decide later that you hate painted doors.
Refresh the Paint in Your Closets
The closet is quite possibly the most overlooked area of the home, but it is very important to maintain. A crisp, white closet interior reflects light well and shows the true color of your clothing so you always leave home looking amazing. Install a full length mirror somewhere in the closet so you can always take a good look at your overall appearance before leaving home.
