“It is a privilege to wake up in this house that existed before us, and will exist after us.” -Tim Cuppet (homeowner)
There has never been any doubt that renovating your homes can be stressful to both you and your bank accounts.
Unfortunately, it is not something we can easily pass up upon–especially if our homes have already gone through several phases of wear and tear without being repaired. While you can choose to delay it until necessary, it is not an elective expense you can only choose to do when you wish. If you wish to keep the integrity of your homes, then renovations are not only necessary but paramount. After all, you cannot reasonably expect to buy a brand new home and keep it in pristine condition without addressing any need for repairs and the like. Renovating your homes preserves its integrity insomuch that it can actually delay its inevitable deterioration. Although the deterioration of your home is natural and inescapable, innovative solutions in your home would not only maintain its overall quality but you can actually curtail the normal wear and tear process.
However, home renovations do not have to be precipitated solely by deterioration alone. It could be that homeowners would like to give their spaces a metaphorical breath of fresh air by introducing improvements or they may simply want to see their interiors in a new perspective. However, home renovations are most prudent when your home is starting to show signs of disrepair. Unfortunately, not all signs home decline are readily apparent. Some of them might be concealed and if left unaddressed, could potentially aggravate an existing problem. In this regard, it is best to be aware which home renovations could be saved for later and which ones are urgent enough to require your immediate attention. Whether you are living in a condo in Ortigas or elsewhere, home renovations are essential if you wish to maintain the quality and value of your homes.
Here are some signs that you might need that home renovation more than you think:
1.) Your floor needs to be replaced
Do you have any missing floor tiles? Are your floors starting to detach? If these are things you can readily notice in your homes then you definitely need to renovate your homes. More often than not, rooms with the most foot traffic would require new floors. Such rooms would include the kitchens and the bathrooms. Tile or floor detachment can be caused by a myriad of things, but it definitely means your homes is in dire need of some TLC and a much-needed floor renovation project.
2.) It feels too crowded or too empty
If you feel like there are too many of you at home insomuch that you are constantly running into each other and invading each other’s space, your home might need an extension. Similarly, having way too much space is not necessarily a good thing either. A home being too spacious or crowded is never a great idea. Arguably, you might just need to get rid of the clutter and do some furniture reorganization, but if the problem persists after both have steps have been undertaken then you might be in need of more space for storage or you might need to expand your home.
3.) It is starting to leak
A leaking roof is never a good sign and more often than not, it can only mean one of two things. Either the roofing installment and service were both subpar or it might be that your home is already old than the roof is beginning to rot. In this regard, fixing your roof is necessary and at times, you might need to renovate it in its entirety (which means replacing the entire roof). Although this project can be a bit costly, know that it would be a worthy investment in the end. After all, you would not want to constantly have ceilings that leaked which would ultimately cause the destruction of your household belongings.
