A lot of ideas go through our minds to leave our house or apartment looking like new. The question is: does our budget fit to achieve our goal? These are some practical tips to remodel these two vital spaces in our house without having to invest millions of pesos that, sometimes, due to ignorance in home decoration issues, are unnecessary.
Let’s Start with the Kitchen
Sometimes it is better to look at the investment we will make in the dishwasher; that is, it is better to allocate money to one that is high quality and modern, as it will help us save water in the future, in addition to contributing to the conservation of the environment. Today’s dishwashers are practical, fit in any space and, best of all, come with enough technology to regulate the consumption of the precious liquid. It must be added that the designs are more and more varied, so as far as aesthetics we will have enough options to choose from.
As for the fridge, you have to think about spaces and use that we will give it. If it is a person who lives alone, or a family of no more than three members, why choose a large refrigerator that, in addition to taking up a lot of space in the kitchen, will spend more energy, so we will also spend more money on services. For these cases, the best is a medium fridge; those that exist in the current market help in the conservation of light.
The dishwashing trays. It is best to use one that is stainless steel. Although they can be expensive at times, we will save a lot of money in the future, as these are the ideal to withstand shocks, in addition to being easy to clean. In this way we will avoid ‘headaches’ when changing this element of the kitchen.
Multifunctional ovens. These are ideal not only to save space, as we would be replacing the browner and the defroster, they also help save gas and energy. It is a small appliance and can be placed in practically any kitchen space.
The inn. Together with the dishwasher they make up a large kitchen space. The best thing is to separate a space for the stove, in this way we will have –in line- counter, stove, dishwasher and oven (giving the order to our own taste).
To save money, it is best to opt for a hard-stone counter (countertop), as they resist high temperatures, withstand any type of cleaning, are heavy traffic type and withstand humidity. From the outset, these will prevent us from changing economic counters when buying it, but expensive when maintaining it.
Now Let’s go to the Bath
Walls. One of the keys to the aesthetics of the bathroom is that the walls are tiled and that it plays with the colors of the floor and furniture (sinks, toilet, among others). However, there is no obligation to tie ourselves to buy expensive tiles to leave our bathroom looking like new. One of the most recommended options by experts is to use vinyls or natural bark; of course, as long as they withstand humidity. Not only are they inexpensive, but we can install it ourselves, making it less of an expense.
Hire an expert of kitchen and bathroom remodel San Diego before you lay down. Whenever we see a moldy wall, we think we have to tear it down and veneer a new one. However, the first recommendation is to direct our doubts to a construction expert, because perhaps the solution is simply to adapt a natural ventilation system (such as a window), so that the air will circulate more fluidly in the bathroom.
Light, key to saving. It is evident that today the majority of companies that manufacture light bulbs and lamps are worrying about the preservation of the planet. So, remember more bulbs don’t mean a brighter bathroom. Kitchen & Bathroom remodeling experts in La Mesa recommend using energy saving lamps that, in addition to maintaining the same light output, save up to 35 percent more energy, and best of all, have much more durability. Thus, we save on remodeling and maintenance in the short and medium term.
Workforce. It is time to think that remodeling the house can be a very fun activity, it brings the family together and the satisfaction is enormous. To leave our house as new they can participate from the smallest of the house, to the grandparents.
To avoid labor costs in something that we can surely do ourselves, the ideal is to plan the tasks that each one will do. Of course, the more complex tasks, such as electrical or plumbing work, it is better to leave them in the hands of experts, because we are not going to want to do damage in our remodeling stage.
The remodeling of the bathroom and kitchen, as well as any other space in the house, should not be taken as a tortuous and complicated practice, just enough to set the tasks and make a schedule, this will avoid high money costs, especially in times of end of the year.
