Someone can decide on remodeling an older home for any reason—trend upkeep, stage to sell or new living arrangements, just to name a few. Sure, each homeowner reconstructs to their individual needs, but there are a few, simple feature updates that benefit any home. Consider these tips when remodeling an older home.
Ductless air conditioning
The easiest way to upgrade the AC in an older home is with a ductless AC system. Unlike a traditional, central AC system, a multi-split ductless system can be mounted on any wall in any room and deliver temperature-controlled air to that area. You can even create “zones,” so air—and money—won’t be wasted on an unoccupied space.
Air ducts are often a source of energy waste and poor air quality. Ductless AC units offer multi-stage filtration, which drastically reduces the amount of particles in the atmosphere and improves the quality of air in your home. To keep away those allergies, you’ll want the most efficient ductless air conditioner for this San Antonio fall season.
Revamp the exterior
Like the Dixie Chicks ring, we all desire wide-open spaces. There’s no exception when it comes to a backyard. Luckily, you can keep your spacious, outdoor aesthetic without compromising safety and privacy.
Wrap your patio with a screen. This lets you indulge in a relaxed, autumn evening outdoors without any unwelcome critters, insects or nosy neighbors crashing the party. It also keeps wandering children and pets enclosed in a certain area for that second you take your eye off them.
The kitchen is often the heart of the home. Keep it that way with an open floor plan, allowing for a large group of family and friends at every birthday, holiday party and just-for-fun gathering. When it comes to colors, keep it simple. Think neutral countertops, floors and appliances, but no white. A simple, natural color scheme complementss any décor style.
Determine the fine line between necessary and luxury. Consider convenience, cost and what it will take to sell the place in the future. Don’t be cheap, but do some research before choosing the highest end feature.
