A number of factors determine the value and quality of new construction or a renovation project. While you may focus more on the bigger things, like stability and functionality, there are smaller items that should not be overlooked. The following finishing touches can make a big difference in new and renovated properties.
- Beautiful Flooring Designs
Floors present the most visible surface area, next to walls, in most homes. Make sure you choose a covering that isn’t just practical, but also beautiful. The floor in a room can dramatically change the aesthetic quality of that space. Wood is lovely but can also be delicate in high traffic areas or homes with pets. Stone and brick is durable and can really dress up the area, making it much more appealing to those who live there and potential future buyers.
- Updated Countertops
Countertops are the heart of your kitchen. They are used daily and are highly visible. Whether you are building new construction or updating an existing home, don’t skimp when it comes to counters. Choose a material that will last and looks gorgeous with your cabinets and appliances. You can even go the extra mile with a backsplash to add character to the kitchen.
- Good Lighting
Lighting is both essential and decorative in any home. The level of light influences comfort, functionality, and visual appeal. Make sure you have proper lighting in each room. Your den or living room should have lower, warmer lighting while an office or work area requires something brighter and whiter. Lights can also brighten up the living space and make it more appealing to guests or buyers should you sell later.
- Outdoor Entertaining
The livable space your home offers doesn’t end at the exterior wall. It should extend outside into your yard. Having an outdoor entertaining space, even a small one, really adds to the appeal of a home. Pavers and a patio will make your property look much more inviting and provide you with another option when you need to escape for a little while.
Landscaping is another finishing touch that can really beautify your property. Many builders use clay pavers because they are durable, stain resistant, and hold their colour well. They can be installed many ways to create the look and tone you want in your yard.
