Remodeling Ideas for Your Home

When it comes to remodeling your Boise home, it helps to have a variety of ideas that you can use to get the exact results you want. There are inexpensive remodeling projects you can do, and then there are more significant projects that can require serious planning and a significant investment. But the most important aspect of these projects is that they get the right results and add some value to your home. The professionals at Handyman Connection of Boise can help you complete any remodeling project you like, but it is always helpful to have some ideas to get your thought process started.

Install A New Ceiling
You would be surprised at how different a room can look when you install a new ceiling. You can choose to use basic ceiling tiles to get a conservative look, or you can scout the Internet for decorative tiles that really make your home stand out. When the ceiling is done, use crown molding to create the ultimate frame to your artwork. You can put new ceilings in every room, or choose the high traffic rooms to make an impact on guests.

Turn Your Door Into A Bookcase
Wouldn’t it be fun to have a bookcase that actually doubles as a secret door to another room? If you have an office or a small bedroom that is attached to the living room, then start planning your wall of bookshelves that includes turning that door into a secret entrance. This project will require some extra help and you should consider hiring a professional to do the installation to make sure it is done right. But the end result will be the ultimate conversation piece that will turn your home into a house of intrigue.

Build A Kid’s Loft
College students use lofts to help free up more space in their dorm rooms and you can use the same concept when you remodel your child’s bedroom. Remember to put in plenty of safety measures on the upper portion of the loft to keep your child safe while they sleep at night, and do not allow the amazing potential of the bottom part to go untapped. You can install a desk, a play area, or even a second closet under your child’s bed and free up plenty of space for other bedroom remodeling projects.

Make A Display Wall
One of the least expensive ways to remodel a room is to put up a new coat of paint, but painting a room one solid color is boring. Instead, choose one of the walls of your room to be a display wall and paint it a completely different color than the other three walls. It is always best to choose a solid wall that has no doors and as few windows as possible to get the maximum effect. After the paint has dried, install some shelves and start putting up framed works of art on your display wall to add a unique look to your room.

Put In Hardwood Floors
Since we have covered ways to make your ceiling and walls look unique, we should probably give some advice on remodeling your floors. Installing hardwood floors can sound expensive, but there are laminate floor products out there that you can install yourself that look great. You can buy laminate that looks like all types of hardwood floors, tile, and even stone that simply snaps together and can be installed in a single day.
