Written by Posted On Friday, 20 June 2014 07:08

Home is our shelter, and it is a place where we not only feel secure, but where we spend most of our free time. That is why we are always on the lookout, searching for ways of improving our home, making our lives more comfortable, and not to mention, more convenient. This kind of small changes can also improve your overall happiness, but you should carefully choose where you would like to invest into.

No matter what you decide, a home investment is always a worthy venture that will not only increase the overall value of your property, but certainly increase the quality of your life.

1. Renovate Your Bathroom

The bathroom is a really important room in any house, and you can tell a lot about a person when you see how clean their bathroom really is. It is also a place where we spend about a year and a half of our lives in, and this makes you wonder: is your bathroom spectacular enough? You can improve it in many ways, starting by changing the color of the walls, or replacing broken tiles. Depending on your budget, you can even change tiles, although that might require hiring a professional. Try and refurbish everything that can be reused, but invest into some high-quality faucets, as to prevent leaking. Think about having a waterproof speaker installed, as there is nothing better than singing while taking a shower. Another change might include installing a tankless water heater, which can heat the water as much as you need, so you don’t have to limit your baths anymore.


2. Transform Your Attic

If you are lucky enough to have a spacious attic, then look no further. An attic can be a huge addition to your home, and you can easily make a room all for yourself and finally have that gaming space you've always wanted. Most people just use it as storage space, putting piles and piles of junk, while it can be easily turned into an office space, or a kid’s room. Remember, you’ll have to invest heavily into some proper insulation of the place, and to make sure that the place is actually good for living in. With a little bit of decoration, a fresh coat of paint and some furniture, it will be a brand new room that can serve any purpose you want. Unlike basements, attics are naturally more open, there is more air and sunlight there, and basically it has all the requirements for turning it into a wonderful living space.


3. Redecorate Your Living Room

Do you want a bigger TV, or some better speakers? Do you want to have that book shelf finally installed, but you never seem to have the time? The room in which we spend most of our time, when we are not sleeping, is usually the living room, and the importance of such a space cannot be emphasized enough. It also serves as a great place to receive guests, or to spend some time with your family. Your imagination is the only limit, and you can improve it in many ways. Think about having a fireplace installed? If you find it too hot during the summer, think about having an AC installed, which will not only heat and cool down a room, but it can also remove pollen or other allergens which may cause you discomfort. If you have some additional finances, you can even change the old furniture, or add a new coffee table. If you like modern art, think about buying a few pictures online that will definitely improve the overall aesthetics of a room.


There is an endless amount of ideas that could help you improve your home. You can create a flower garden in your backyard, or make a small water fountain. Do not forget to use every corner of your home, as every corner that is not used can be transformed into a shelf or a cupboard, where you can store all your additional stuff. Don’t be afraid to move stuff around, as you never know, you might find the new arrangements to be more to your liking. Whatever you decide, make sure that you enjoy all the changes you've made, while trying to stay inside your financial limits.
