Tips For Turning Your Fixer-Upper Into Your Forever Home

screen-shot-2016-11-19-at-9-05-36-pmWith some TLC and inspiration from your favorite HGTV television series, you can turn a fixer-upper into your forever home. Whether you are looking for a complete gut or a cosmetic fix, bring out the true visionary in you by seeing past a property’s current state and unleashing its potential. Question is – what should you fix first?

1. Paint – Painting interior walls is an inexpensive and easy way to transform any room. Break up the ordinary look with a bold and vibrant accent wall that will help highlight and define the entire room.

2. Floor – Unearth the beautiful hardwood floors hiding under the soiled, old carpet. Refinish and refurbish a floor to add elegance to a home and enjoy the benefits of long lasting durability hardwood floors provide. If there is no wooden treasure in your home, opt for alternative floor renovations for each room based on function, looks and your lifestyle.
3. Kitchen – The kitchen is usually the first place to tackle when renovating your fixer-upper. An open concept kitchen design is an ideal layout for making a small room feel bigger. You may have to knock down a wall or two to create a fluid flow between rooms, but it is a great space-saving trick to turn three rooms into one!

4. Curb Appeal – It is not only the interior that matters, it is the exterior, too! Make a great first impression and boost your fixer-upper’s aesthetic appeal by applying a fresh coat of paint to the exterior walls to drastically enhance the look and feel of your home. Replacing old windows and doors or installing trim details, along with incorporating new fencing, can also help improve the look of your property.
