Useful Upgrades For Your Old Home

Having lived in a home for a long period of time, you are likely to start realizing that your home lacks a lot of the things that modern homes have. With time, home designers have identified numerous details that can be added to homes to make our lives easier and our homes looking neater and tidier. Fortunately most of these upgrades are not too expensive and can be made easily. Another benefit of upgrading your home is to increase its resale value in the event you decide to sell your home.

Cleanliness and Ease in the kitchen

Frequent cooking has a tendency to create a mess. Oil splashes from your cooking and soapy water splashes from your constant washing up are likely to make your kitchen walls dirtier and more stained than any other wall in your house. You kitchen walls tend to get stained much faster than any other wall in your house as well. One of the best ways to avoid this is to have a kitchen splash back built at your home that will make cleaning up easier and prevent those staining liquids from hurting your wall.

Hanging up your kitchenware 

Forks, spoons, cooking utensils and whisks are some of the few things you are like to find scattered around your kitchen. Because these utensils are used so often and washed so often, they tend to get left around on plate racks and wire racks making your kitchen look untidy and cluttered. One great space saving option is to have hooks placed around your kitchen so you will be able to hang up your utensils. Ideally you will want to have the hooks placed closer to your cooking area and to your washing area, preferably above your kitchen splash back and by your stove at a safe distance away from the heat.

Additional storage

One of the most important things that most homes lack is adequate storage area. As a result our homes are often cluttered with hundreds of small things that do not have a place, with dozens of boxes and with dozens of almeirahs, cupboards and wardrobes that take up a lot of space in our homes. When redesigning your home, it is vital that you make an effort to create a lot of additional storage in areas that would otherwise go wasted. Some examples of this are underneath your concrete hollow bed, underneath your kitchen sink and a number of cupboards and ward robes on your walls above eye level. Making storage space above eye level helps to clear space on your floor by eliminating extra cupboards and boxes making your home look much more spacious.
