When thinking about home upgrades, most people think about entire home remodels. However, there are strategic ways of improving your home without committing to a longer process. Knowing where upgrades can happen can help save you time and effort while improving your home’s look.
Blue Print General Contracting in Hamilton is a full-service general contracting company that offers basement development, bathroom remodels, kitchen renovations and more. They have suggestions of three upgrades that homeowners should consider:
A flooring upgrade can make a significant difference
The flooring in your home plays a significant role in how the room looks. Flooring should be attractive, functional, and meet your specific needs for lifestyle and maintenance. For example, hardwood flooring is a classic choice and can improve aesthetics and value. Upgrading your floors to quality hardwood will drastically change the look of your home. If you have an older hardwood floor that is scratched and worn, you can consider refinishing it instead of a total replacement. Blue Print General Contracting offers a range of floor maintenance and restoration services, including hardwood, laminate, tile floor repair, restoration, and sealing. Your older floors can look brand new again!
For bathroom renovations, consider water-resistant flooring that is easy to clean and maintain. Ceramic and porcelain tile, luxury vinyl tile, and luxury vinyl plank are great options. They’re durable, water-resistant, and hygienic.
Stairs can be an eye-catching feature
Along with flooring, stairs also require maintenance to extend their life and keep them looking great. Depending on how your home is laid out, stairs can be a big focal point. Upgrading your stairs can significantly improve the look of your main floor if this is the case. Regular refreshes can help fix damage while improving their aesthetic to match your style and other upgrades. Sanding, staining, and sealing are stair maintenance services offered by Blue Print General Contracting. In addition, updating hardware like changing handrails and spindles can go a long way in transforming the look and safety of your stairways.
New windows and doors improve curb appeal and efficiency
Windows and doors play a key role in your home’s curb appeal. In addition, your windows are the main culprit for energy loss in your home. A window and door upgrade can drastically improve energy efficiency and home comfort. It will also do wonders for how your home looks.
Blue Print General Contracting offers doors and window upgrades and can help you find a look that meets your personal taste and home design. French doors give a tasteful look while improving the natural light. Bay, bow, or geometric windows can provide a focal point seen both inside and outside the home. For example, a bow or bay window can provide exceptional views of the outside in the kitchen while providing a shelf for plants, decor, or kitchen supplies.
If you’re developing the basement, you’ll need egress windows in bedrooms to comply with the building code. Larger basement windows can also improve natural lighting, making a basement feel airy and bright. Learn more about popular window styles.
