If you're planning to renovate the interior of your home, there are many ways to achieve an updated look without breaking the bank. Switching out some interior components throughout the house can both modernize and refresh the entire space. Here are 3 ways to update your home's interior:
1. Replace interior doors with newer versions. If your home is older, your doors may be dark wood or an older, outdated style. Many home renovations include switching out darker wood for white, offering a clean, streamlined feel to the home. Most doors come in standard sizes and don't have to be custom ordered. Some rooms look terrific with French doors; a study on the main floor can be sectioned off for privacy, but the French doors add elegance and light. You can also be creative with interior doors; consider adding shelving or molding to flat panel doors for visual interest.
2. Update the trim throughout the house, or even just in specific rooms. If you plan to switch out interior doors, especially if changing the style or color of wood, you'll want to match the doors with new trim. Crown molding comes in a wide variety of sizes and styles, and immediately adds value and sophistication to a home's interior. Trim can be painted or stained to reflect the rest of the home's decor.
3. Update the hardware throughout the home. Most homes have quite a bit of hardware throughout, including in the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry room, and on doors. Knobs on doors should be updated to complement any changes in interior doors or trim; satin nickel, brushed pewter, and rustic oil-rubbed bronze are three very popular current styles. These finishes can be used on faucets, handles, pulls, and knobs in any room in the home. In addition to metal hardware, homeowners can choose from ceramic, glass, and wood options.
