4 Home Renovation Projects For A Healthier Home

This year, you might be considering a long-overdue home renovation project if the health of your home is on the downward slide. Here are 4 home renovation projects to help build yourself a healthier home in 2018:

Add a Mudroom

Our homes are often covered in shoe tracks and littered with hats, coats, and various other outdoor apparel. By adding an entryway, you can reduce the amount of dirt that enters your living areas. A mudroom stores your dirty shoes and keeps the locker-room stink out of your home.

Your mudroom can be as big or as small as you need it to be. Ask your design contractor for custom built-ins to fit your space, including cubbies to organize your belongings. You can even ask for multi-purpose benches with hidden drawers for additional storage. This makes it easy for your family and guests to sit down and remove their shoes before entering your house, saving your floors from the outdoors.

Go Green

If you want to save money, consider going green in your next home renovation project. You can save thousands of dollars every year simply by replacing old appliances and structural basics, such as windows and doors. Adding a hot water recirculating pump will reduce water consumption and the time it takes for hot water to reach your faucets or shower. Upgrading your home to include more energy-efficient and water-efficient products helps your wallet and the environment. There are hundreds of quality “green” materials to use in your next project that are renewable, recyclable, and promote a cleaner, more sustainable environment. Not to mention, your family can breathe easier knowing your home’s air quality will improve as well.

>> Eco-friendly Choices to Make in Your Home Remodel

Replace your Countertops

A counter replacement might be an easy way to boost the aesthetics of your kitchen while simultaneously limiting the spread of bacteria. You’ll need to look for countertops that won’t harbor bacteria during food preparation, washing dishes, unloading groceries, etc. If you’re considering a kitchen renovation this year, take a gander at silestone quartz or copper countertops, which are naturally antimicrobial.

Remove Carpeting

Carpet is known to collect dust, dirt, and stains in family households. This year, opt in for hardwood floors instead, which are much easier to clean and manage than its counterpart. If you can’t quite spring for hardwood, check into laminate wood, which gives you the look of hardwood at a fraction of the cost. Just imagine not having to vacuum or shampoo the carpet on your stairs or in your living room right before guests come over.

If you’re a lover of all things carpet, consider replacing the carpet in high-traffic areas of the home, such as the hallway, living room, or family room. With hardwood floors, you can get fashionable area rugs, which still offer comfort for your feet. These rugs can be easily maintained and swapped out when they get old and raggedy.
