Home Improvement / August 30, 2015
With work, family, friends and leisure pursuits all competing for your attention, chances are the last thing you want is to spend one more minute on home maintenance than is absolutely necessary. Home improvement projects that save you time are always welcome, especially when you don’t have to implement them on your own. From smart storage units to low-maintenance flooring, Handyman Connection of Carmel is your source for remodeling solutions that make it easier to keep your home looking clean, tidy and organized.
Whether it covers your kitchen countertops, surrounds a shower or adorns your windows, every material used in your home has its own set of maintenance requirements. By choosing materials and products with easy-to-clean finishes, you’ll spend less time scrubbing, scouring and polishing. Best of all, you don’t have to sacrifice style to enjoy the benefits of low-maintenance materials. From laminate flooring that mimics natural stone to vinyl siding that looks like wood, you’ll find synthetic materials that are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.
For cabinets that are as stylish as they are easy to clean, think contemporary. Ornate cabinetry may be visually appealing, but it takes a lot of elbow grease to keep all those nooks and crannies free of dirt and grime. The streamlined forms and clean lines of modern design, on the other hand, offer the ultimate in easy maintenance. If slab-front doors are too plain for your taste, choose panel models with beveled edges that will come clean with a single wipe. Think minimal when it comes to kitchen knobs, drawer pulls and hardware too.
Smart Color Choices
Let your individual cleaning style guide you when choosing colors for your remodeling project. If you can’t abide crumbs on the counter, for example, avoid dark shades or multi-color patterns that make it hard to see them. If fingerprints on appliances drive you up the wall, skip the shiny stainless steel and opt for a color in a matte finish instead. Colors and finishes can reveal dust and dirt or conceal it, so it makes sense to base your choices on the amount of everyday cleaning you’re prepared to do.
A Place for Everything
Remodeling projects that reduce the amount of clutter and chaos in your life make your entire home easier to maintain. Something as straightforward as installing a built-in storage unit near the front door can save you hours of time hunting for misplaced car keys, mismatched shoes and lost scarves. From extra shelves in the pantry to a full set of cabinets in the garage, organization is the key to keeping clutter at bay. At Handyman Connection of Carmel, our carpenters have the experience and expertise it takes to create storage solutions that are personalized to fit your specific needs.
Regular maintenance is an important part of homeownership, but that doesn’t mean that you have to tackle every task and chore on your own. In addition to providing easy-to-maintain home improvements and renovations, Handyman Connection of Carmel offers a wide array of maintenance services too, covering everything from gutter cleaning and window repairs to hanging holiday decorations. Our low-maintenance solutions are guaranteed to free up your schedule so that you can spend more time enjoying life with your friends and family. Request your free, no-obligation estimate today!
