Recycle and Rejuvenate Your Home for the New Year

Recycle and rejuvenate your home for the new year. It’s a new year and time to look around your home and assess the plans you had last year to redo an area of your home but didn’t get to it for some reason or another.

It’s a new year and time to look around your home and assess the plans you had last year to redo an area of your home but didn’t get to it for some reason or another. If the reason is finances, you might want to rejuvenate your home or revitalization instead of a complete redo.

Resurfaced and Refaced Kitchen

Sanding and revarnishing or repainting your cabinets may be a better option than the expense of a whole new kitchen. Kitchen countertops can be resurfaced right over the counters and rejuvenate your home at a fraction of the cost. One option is concrete countertops, this product gives the consumer many options and the cost can be less than half of the cost of granite and still give you the look you want. Add a pop of personality by choosing one area of your cabinets to add glass doors. Gather items and collectibles to establish your own unique look. Create a focal point by painting the inside of the cabinets a contrasting color.

Revive and Renew by Repainting

Use what you have and rejuvenate your home by repurposing and recasting. Repaint your living room and add an accent wall. Choose a strong color to blow away the hum drums and your guests. Ask the folks at The Paint Mart in Redding for help.

Don’t be afraid of the dark; these strong, bold colors can be adventurous and daring but by stepping out you can make a statement and the dark color will emphasize the light in the room and make it resonate.

Up Style and Renew for Less

Reusing and repurposing old parts of your home not only saves you money, but also helps keep these items out of the landfills. Instead of throwing out that old couch or chair, renew them instead by redoing the cushions to give them a new life and a new style. Couch covers are making a comeback, they come in a variety of colors and patterns and fit most couches. Don’t be afraid to add color or pattern to your living room and the cost is low enough that you can change it frequently. Whether you are getting your home ready to sell or just giving your house a new look, by utilizing the features in your home that can be revamped, you can refresh, refurbish, and rejuvenate your home without throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
