As we fast approach the festive season when families come together for the festivities, it will even be more joyous celebrating Christmas and welcoming the new year 2020 in an elegant and nice-looking house.
From well-painted walls and to a neatly trimmed compound. Living in a house with an impressive and striking look should be everyone’s dream before the festival season.
Remember the day you entered your brand new house, your excitement was heightened by the new items that were in it. As years went by however, the house succumbed to age, the roof gathered dust and rust, the paint on the walls peeled away and got dirty as also the water taps got broken or stained. Renovation might be inevitable even though the house may not necessarily be up for sale.
However, thanks to the hard economic times, this may not necessarily be as possible we wish, in that case, one has to devise ways and means of giving the house a facelift albeit at a low cost but efficient budget to save the day.
Nil Post got in touch with First Village Technical and Construction Company and they suggested the following guidelines would help to give one an idea of a low-cost renovation;
Plan for it
It can be disastrous to wake up in the morning and think about a facelift plan and budget from the blue. You need a good amount of time and preparation before you make up your mind and set out on the project. This will give you time to consider the different options available on the materials, their prices and above all change of mind.
Get your priorities right
Kampala stresses that it is important to first choose what exactly you want to renovate as that will save unplanned expenditures. In so doing, you will come up with a priority list of what ought to receive a facelift first in line with your budget. You can decide to start with repainting alone and later handle other things like redoing the ceiling and floors.
Do you know the type of paint you want to use for the renovation or are you carrying on with the old one? once that question is answered, the next aspect should be doing a market survey to ascertain the prices. You should carefully select the amount and type of paint from the variety available and that includes oil, weather guard and silk emulsion among others. Be sure of the space (in square metres) color and longevity you want as each of these has a bearing on the costs.
Renovation doesn’t necessarily mean breaking down walls and replacing every physical aspect of the house. It can be as simple as replacing and refurbishing the drawers, cabinets, and sinks to give your kitchen a tricking look.
Replacing the wall tiles, old paints and varnish on the cabinets go a long way in giving the kitchen a fresher look. You can also consider the possibility of refacing the cabinets.By refacing, you replace only the cabinet doors but leave the actual cabinets (boxes) intact. This will depend on the size of your kitchen but it’s sure way to save the costs of buying brand new cabinets.
Bathroom and Toilet
This largely depends on the type of bathroom. While some houses have bathtubs, others have showers but you may not necessarily have to replace these unless necessity rules otherwise.
Tiling the floor of the bathroom and even the walls is a sure way to giving it a nice look. If you already have, they may need replacement just like the sink.
However different shops come with different prices.
The fact that any house can be broken up to suit the owner’s desires. This, however, doesn’t mean breaking down the entire house. It can be walls in particular rooms. As part of the facelift, you can break down the wall partitions to make the living, dining rooms and kitchen open space. It is a fashionable trend these days.
You don’t necessarily have to bring the roof down and replace the rusty and dusty iron sheets or tiles. Repainting, preferably with a different color all together is good enough but this should be done after replacing the worn-out parts.
A facelift for the living room can really be anything from replacing the curtains to repairing.
Acquiring tiles or replacing the old ones may be an expensive venture but there are cheaper options that are equally worthwhile. You can refurbish the living room with a big tile capturing a family photo engraved on it and place it in the middle of epoxy. The beauty, however, is that you can do most of these renovations on your own.
