The truth is that the time always comes when we must reform our house and it happens to all of us. The moment may come sooner or later, but it inevitably does. It is then when we have to puff up with courage and desire to take the bull by the horns, making use of the cliché: “The sooner I get with it, the sooner I get rid of it.”
We must not forget that a home is a place that is always in use and that all its components wear out and deteriorate, so it requires maintenance to prevent things from spoiling or breaking or that the house simply does not it comes on us; never said in the literal sense of the phrase, of course 😉
But this is not the only condition for home renovations . There are many others. It can be for aesthetics or decoration; that the original style of our house has stopped attracting us or that our tastes have changed as we have been getting older or that fashions and styles have varied considerably during all this time.
Another reason may be because the family has grown, both in number and age. We started with two people inhabiting it and there are already four of us, counting the two girls. Indeed, you have been right with your thought: our daughters have already turned twelve and ten years old and they absolutely do not want to have to share the same room. Something logical: they need their space and their privacy; the same thing happens to his mother and me.
Do not hesitate. As has happened to most of the people on this planet, the same thing will happen to you and you will have to carry out the housing reform. And you will think. But what reform do I have to do or does my house need?
Five favorite ideas to give your home a nice change of scenery.
The living room . It is the most used room, so it deserves a special mention and dedication. You can choose to leave the walls smooth and paint them a light blue tone. Dress it up with some navy blue sofas, accompanied by a coffee or coffee table, a dining table for six people and the standing table where to place a lamp, all these furniture that are made of wood and with shades of cedar or oak, birch looks great too.
The bedrooms . It all depends on which ones you are going to reform and who is going to live in them. It is not necessary to treat a children’s room the same as a juvenile one, the same happens with those of marriage and that of grandparents. Ask them and let yourself be advised and advised by what each one wants and needs; do not forget that it is their space and their world. Each one chooses what he wants and how he wants it.
The kitchen . The first rule to follow when renovating your kitchen is that it has to be practical and functional, it does not mean that we do not let our imagination fly when changing it, but the kitchen is a place above all for work and we must have it everything at hand and where we can move easily. You can choose to divide it by spaces. The place to cook, which has a large worktop and the furniture is at the right height so that you can work without any discomfort, especially on your back. Create an island where you can prepare all the food that you are going to use in your favorite dishes, in it you can include the sink and on top of the island a utensil organizer where you can have all the utensils that you will need to cook at your fingertips. Appliances have to be as energetic as possible and located as close to each other as possible.
The bathroom . You can choose to tile the walls with white and “herringbone” tiles. All the complements and accessories, along with the faucets of the basin and the bathtub, in golden tones. That all the sanitation and the bathtub maintain an old style. You will get the whole outfit to give off a sense of purity and classic that I love.
The terrace . We must not forget that it is the room where the inclement weather is most noticeable, the four seasons truly inhabit it. The terrace is not used in the same way in summer as in winter, for example, therefore you cannot decorate it in the same way at one time as at the other. For summer, you can take advantage of it to sunbathe, so a good idea is to have spacious and comfortable hammocks, or some chairs and a table to have coffee, a soft drink or a frozen mojito. So that the sun does not bother us, install translucent blinds or tinted windows or awnings and umbrellas. For the winter what I advise you is that you have the terrace well insulated from the rest of the house, in this way we will be very warm and we will save good money.
And the time will come when the reform of your house is finished. It will be then when you will realize all the effort and time that it has cost. Don’t worry, take a tour of the entire house, admire it, see how all the ideas you had in mind have come true, feel the new walls and furniture … What will happen? Simply that you will smile and look at each other feeling proud of yourselves, since everything will have been worth it because you know with total certainty that you have gained in quality of life, you are going to live better and, therefore, you will be happier.
