With so many styles, products and materials available today, it can often be difficult to decide on one of them that suits your preferences best and lasts over time. Customers are often confronted with difficulties in opting for the right remodeling projects that pass the test of time. Since remodeling projects involve financial and time resources, people fear that their choice will be the wrong one.
Although most of the times, tastes and preferences can change over the course of time, there are, however, 8 tips and tricks that specialists recommend so that you can enjoy your home remodeling for a long time. Here’s what you should keep in mind:
1.Use durable finishes
If you choose high quality finishes, not only are there real chances to enjoy your house for many years, but you will also save money in the long run. It’s true that from the very beginning you will have to spend more on high quality materials and products, but their ability to prevent wear means you will spend less on repairs or replacements in the future. The only time you’ll regret paying a higher amount for high-quality items is the day you actually take your money out of your pocket and pay for it. But every day after that, you will be thankful for this, and you will be grateful that you have spent the money on something well worth it, beautiful and useful for the remodeling project.
2.Choose relaxing colors for the walls
Our tastes tend to change over the years, even color preferences. But if you choose relaxing colors for your home, you are likely to appreciate them more. Very energetic colors can be fun and exciting, but there is a risk of getting bored with them very quickly. Plus what do we do with the trends that come and go ?! We must also take them into account. As a result, neutral shades will always be the best choice.
Another tip: You must always keep in mind that when you choose the color of the paint, many shades will look much lighter in the can than when you apply them to the walls. Try a paint sample on the walls before moving on. If it turns out to be too saturated, but you’re pleased with the base color, try diluting it with 50 percent white.
3.Add as many windows as possible
In no way will you regret the addition of natural light sources in your home or, at least, the widening of the windows. But take care of maintaining a pleasant climate, especially in the winter, with blinds or curtains that keep a constant temperature. The higher the window, the cooling in the room will also increase. So make sure that you take the necessary steps to control the temperature changes that go hand in hand with larger windows.
4.Limit the presence of novelty items
If you don’t exaggerate with the trends and choose one or two items that stand out, the probability of feeling overwhelmed by your own choices is very low to nonexistent. It’s easy to love something that stands out when you choose it wisely.
5.Add bold colors through accessories
Choose to add bold colors for a long time, exclusively through accessories and works of art. They are easy to replace when they are no longer fashionable and they can even be the items that catch the eye. Keeping a neutral overall palette allows you to add bold and energetic colors. Changing accessories is a much cheaper option than repainting walls, isn’t it?
6.Opt for classic pieces
Whether you choose finishes, the color palette or the furniture, if you go for classic designs, unlike the trendy ones, your home will be truly timeless. There is a reason why some elements become classical, and that’s because there is a certain aesthetics in their case, which continues to amaze generations for generations, while different seasonal trends go away before new ones even appear.
7.Ensuring functionality – a key goal
Make sure you have enough storage. You can never say there’s enough or too much. Also, try to keep adequate distances in your space, avoiding overcrowding it with furniture. Barriers or obstacles in the living space will annoy you every day, without you even realizing what really bothers you.
8.Don’t be afraid
Just because you want a remodeling to pass the test of time doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be excited. Many customers often change their options by choosing a “safe” remodeling at the last moment. It’s important to trust your instincts. You probably already know what you like, and you are unlikely to change your option so fast. The comforting thing about interiors is that they don’t have to be permanent. Taste can change over time, but the good news is that a renovation or remodeling is always a good option.
