If you’ve been looking for something new to do to your home, you may want to look at one of these items. Sure, you could just paint the walls a different color, or maybe get new cabinets in your kitchen, but sometimes something completely new to your home is exactly what you need to make that drastic change you are itching for.
Each item takes some work to install it, and you may need a professional on hand for some of them. However, each also has different style choices, so you can easily pick something that matches both your personality and your home.
Add A Fireplace
During the winter it can be great to have a fireplace to snuggle by on cold nights. If you moved into a home that doesn’t have a built in fireplace you can still enjoy the comfort and warmth of a fire with a gas fireplace. You may also want to invest in a nice real or faux fur rug to pull off the complete look and give yourself someplace comfortable to lay by the fire.
They come in all different shapes and sizes. Some work as a centerpiece to your room, while others are made to fit in the wall. Which design you choose with likely depend on your home and how much work you want put into installation.
Install An Island
No matter what the size of your kitchen, an island is a must. Kitchen islands give you more space for working, if you spend much time in your kitchen. They also give you more storage space, depending on the type of island you choose.
There are many different kitchen islands out there. Some are simply a countertop, some include cupboards or shelf space, while others may have a sink or even stovetop in them. Obviously the more amenities they include the more work it will take to have them installed in your kitchen.
Have A Closet Organizer
There are many different brands of closet organizer systems, so you may want to do some research to make sure you are buying the best system for what you need. If you are putting one in a child’s closet you may want something extra sturdy. While if it’s in a shared closet for you and a spouse you may want to have separate hanging areas to have a “his” and “hers” type sectioning.
What you need will also depend on what items you have to put in your closet. If you don’t hang many of your clothes you may want less racks for hanging and more spots for folded clothes. Or, if you hang everything but your unmentionable then you may want multiple racks for hanging.
All of these options can add a little something extra to your home, making it more organized, more comfortable, and even more stylish.
