If there is one thing that upgrades give your home, it’s value. No matter how you have your home, the way you change things can not only add that value, but make it look fantastic! We now spend a lot of time going online and keeping abreast of new trends in fashion and new technology trends, and the trends in the home are now evolving faster than ever. Each time you search online for the best ways to change-up your garage or your kitchen, there are always new trends and styles to follow.
Every industry from interior design to building are constantly developing and changing, and with life being busy enough to make most homeowners dread making home upgrades, it’s all about making the upgrades that make for low maintenance living. Here’s the thing: keeping house? There’s just not enough time in the day between busy careers and families to raise. With low maintenance home upgrades, though, you can upgrade to some of the most beautiful products that don’t take much looking after. Here are five classic examples.
Stain Resistant Countertops. Marble, granite and natural stone are all gorgeous, on-trend upgrades to add to your kitchen. However, they don’t last long unless they are sealed professionally. If you are upgrading your kitchen, quartz is a much better, more long-lasting option that can really make your kitchen look great and resist scratches, stains and high heat.
Coated Garage Floors. Upgrading your garage space has to include upgrading the flooring, and at companies like Kwik Kerb, epoxy flooring is what’s on offer. It lasts for years and requires very little maintenance to keep it looking fantastic.
Hardwood Over Carpet. Thick carpets are lovely to look at, warm the house right up and are comfortable in the home. And they also attract every fleck of dirt, every squashed crumb and they cling onto red wine like nothing else. If you’re clumsy or you have kids, installing hardwood flooring is often a far better low maintenance alternative.
Upgrade The Roof. The time of year for replacing tiles on your roof can be one of total annoyance when you have broken tiles and no budget to replace them. Swapping tiled rooftops for metal ones can be so much better for your wallet. Fire resistant, energy efficient and little to no maintenance needed, they’re a preferred option!
Replace Wooden Windows. Wooden window frames may look wonderfully chic, but they’re prone to rot and termites unless your careful. Switching the wooden frames for PVC can be the best decision that you have ever made. All they’ll need is a wipe over with a cloth to keep them looking great.
These low maintenance upgrades could transform your home with little to no issue. All you need is the time to get everything installed and upgraded. Take a moment to think about how much of your time you spend on home maintenance, and then move forward from there. You won’t regret adding value and minimising the fuss of your home.
