When it comes to renovations, your garage, patio or walkway probably aren’t at the forefront of your mind. Many homeowners think about installing new kitchen counters, flooring or even giving their interior a new coat of paint. But with warmer weather approaching, you’ll be wanting to start spending more time outdoors and you might have noticed the state of the area outside of your home.
Each of these three areas can provide value to your home as well as add to its curb appeal. Simple upgrades can help you when it comes time to sell your home, giving you a boost in your home’s price. And not to mention, you’ll be able to get more out of the square footage of your home and property by doing so.
Garage Flooring Renovations
When it comes to deciding how to renovate your garage, it’s use should play a big role in your decision. Are you planning to use the space as a workshop? Or simply a place to park your car? Garages are usually used as mixed spaces with multiple, functional purposes. If you set out a practical renovation plan, you can address each of these uses as well as decide on what type of flooring would be best.
Interlocking tiles for your garage are a great option to revamp your garage in a visually-pleasing manner. Interlocking tiles offer a huge selection of colours and patterns; and you can find something that suits your taste without a problem. They are great for rolling cabinets on top of, as well as a good choice for climates with lots of rain or snow.
Garage floor mats are one of the easiest solutions for homeowners. They can be rolled out and installed in one day. They help to protect against dirt, moisture and snow. If you like to use your garage as a workshop, garage mats are great at soaking up oil spills and other liquids while protecting the flooring underneath.
Renovating Your Walkway
Your walkway might be one of the last places you would think about when it comes to renovations. But having a great walkway adds to the curb appeal of your home significantly. You can choose from a variety of materials and finishes to suit your house, such as poured concrete, flagstone or crushed stone. Each has their benefits and drawbacks, as well as suit a wide variety of different climates.
With the cold season almost at an end, you’ll probably want to start spending more time outdoors, enjoying your backyard. A nice outdoor patio can make it more inviting. If you don’t have one yet, you should first map out the location and the space it will take up. The next step would be to choose the right material, for example, you can go with cedar, redwood or composite. Or you could choose to go with concrete or natural stone, depending on your preferences. After it’s done being built you can play around with making it comfortable using a wide variety of different furniture and other elements.
