Low-Cost Remodeling Details That Will Make a Happier Home

Quick home renovations involve updating the overlooked pieces in your home such as — hardware, cabinet interiors, light switches, and outlets. These are everyday items that will be used with a new, fresh feel and look.

Screw-less outlet and switch plates.

Screw-less plates still use screws to attach to the wall securely, but a smooth cover snaps over the base to hide the hardware creating a seamless outlet.

Matching door hardware.

Creating consistency throughout your home by selecting similar hardware that will be installed on all doors and cabinetry will show a well-thought-out design and look.

Remote venting.

After taking a well deserved, long steamy shower, you could remotely turn on the vent to bring your relaxing atmosphere back to normal. The remote vent motor is placed in an entirely different room, usually up in the attic, creating the quietest and relaxing shower or bath you’ll ever experience.

Soft-close cabinet hinges and drawer glides.

You know those days when your kids or family member decides to slam your cabinet drawer just as your sipping your freshly glass of wine? Well, soft-close hinges have your name written all over them. These hinges and glides slow down mid-swing / mid-closing and touch with a whisper. Now enjoy your wine.

Cabinetry organization.

Don’t buy everything you see at a container store, take some time and inventory what needs to organized. Measurements are important, but most can be integrated into cabinets and drawers with little adjustment.

Protective shower glass treatment.

Shower glass is fantastic for looks and keeping the rest of your bathroom dry, but to keep the clean and spotless, it is important to seal the glass. There are products like ShowerGaurd sealants, this will prevent glass from spots and scum from regular use.

So there you have it, low-cost updates to make your home feel and perform like new. It’s the little things that count.
