Buying a home is a big deal, it’s one of the biggest purchases and moments in a person’s life. It’s an exciting time; you finally have the freedom to make a space your own! After you get those keys in your hand, you will probably be eager to make the place feel like home. You may feel like painting the walls or changing the floors, or maybe you aren’t sure what to do. Whatever the case may be here are five home improvement tips and ideas that can turn an ordinary house into a home.

Paint the walls

A fresh coat of paint can make a huge difference to the feel of a room! When you are searching for the perfect home, the existing paint colors may deter you from purchasing the house. However, one of the great things about buying a house is you have the freedom to make the changes you want and a fresh coat of paint can do wonders! This is a project we see new homeowners asking for a lot, painting can really help restore a room that has suffered from years of wear and tear. Fortunately, the professional team at House Doctors has years of experience needed to do an outstanding job each and every time.

Update the floors

It’s pretty common for new homeowners to want to change the flooring when buying a new home. Updated flooring can instantly transform the look and feel of your new home. The cost of having new flooring put in depends on the quality but also the design aspects too. If you need a complete installation of new flooring for your home, call us. House Doctors has the resources to ensure that your floors will be installed properly, look great, and remain dependable for years to come with minimal maintenance from you.

Change the landscape

Buying your own home most likely means that you will have a new yard to take care of. This is your chance to experiment with different styles to decide what you like and of course what you do not like. Whether it’s adding flowers or planting new trees it’s important to think about how these changes will affect the value of your home.  If you are planning a big landscaping project and find yourself needing help, give us a call.

Updating the bathroom

Renovating a bathroom can be a daunting task when you purchase a new home. Most people think about renovating a bathroom and see dollar signs. The truth is a bathroom remodel doesn’t have to be expensive and can usually be completed over a weekend. Minor updates to a bathroom such as replacing a shower head or changing the vanity can make a big difference. A complete bathroom can be more expensive depending on your budget and goals. The beauty here is that it is your house and you can go as big or as little as you want.

Change the lighting

One of the most overlooked things people do not consider when buying a new home is the lighting. Much like the paint color in your home, the lighting in your home can make or break the space. Consider replacing old light bulbs with new ones to open up the space. Lighting plays an important role in the home; it cannot only help you see better but it can also set the mood of a room. Sometimes we wish we could control the lighting in our rooms without ever getting off the couch. Now, with the advancements in smart technology you can. There are now lights you can install that can be control with the sound of your voice and through your smart phone.
