Most people assume that in the home remodeling industry, the bigger-dollar pieces are what make a home stand out. While that can be true, it is important to remember how the little things can add up to turn an average home remodel into a great one. Consider the following five low-cost tweaks to help make your house feel like home.
- Screw-less outlets and switch plates.
Screw-less plates are actually screw-on plates that have a smooth cover that pops over the top, which creates a sleek and modern look without the distraction of the tiny hardware holding the outlet and plates in place. They come in a variety of colors, and some brands work with the screw-on plates that you may already have!
- Matching and good quality hardware.
It is very easy to become so focused on the spaces under construction and lose sight of the unity and flow of design throughout the entire home. When picking hardware, make sure that you pick pieces that will go with the rest of the house and be able to serve your house well. Consider the amount of use the hardware will experience, where it is located, and the weather in the area when making a decision.
- Soft-close cabinet hinges.
Cabinets can go through a lot of use and abuse. Sometimes their doors are closed with a lot of force, which can make quite a commotion when it returns to its frame. Soft-close hinges stop that by catching the door mid-swing before it’s closed and slowly shuts it. Drawer glides are similar, preventing loud noises and damage from happening to your drawers.
- Custom cabinetry organization.
While buying many pieces from your local organization can be fun, it is not the most productive approach to assuring an organized space for your new remodel. Consider your space and your storage needs–take a hard look at what needs to be kept and where. Once you do that, then you can work with different companies or even your cabinetry makers for organization that can be integrated directly into your space.
- Protective glass treatment
It is valuable to add protective sealant to glass shower doors. Not only does it protect the glass from damage down by water, heat and minerals, but it also helps the doors stay clean longer. When it’s time to clean, all you have to do is do a quick wipe down and you’re good to go!
