A Sneak-Peak Into The Home Renovation Projects

Upcycled Furniture:

Sometimes fully-furnished homes can get a visual upgrade by simply upcycling some of the pieces that look out of place in a freshly painted house. You don’t really have to throw them away just because they don’t look young enough. This is cost-effective as well as convenient. Identify old furniture pieces that can be refurbished rather than replaced.

Sand down surfaces to remove old paint or varnish.
Apply eco-friendly paint or wood stain for a fresh look.
Consider adding new hardware or decorative elements for a unique touch.
Upcycling furniture not only reduces waste but also adds character to your home.

Kitchen Cabinet Makeover:

It is normal for our kitchen cabinets to turn boring after a few years of usage. If we try to resell the house, the buyers may turn away due to the ordinary-looking kitchens. They will prefer a modern kitchen with a fresh look and it would be a headache to change the entire kitchen for the sake of making it look sophisticated. But you don’t need to do that as a kitchen cabinet makeover is all you need in this case.
Remove cabinet doors and hardware.

Sand surfaces to remove old finish and create a smooth base.
Apply a fresh coat of non-toxic paint or stain.
Replace outdated hardware with modern, energy-efficient options.
Consider adding organisational features such as pull-out shelves or racks.  

Energy-Efficient Lighting Upgrade:

Replace traditional incandescent bulbs with LED or CFL bulbs.
Install dimmer switches to adjust light levels and conserve energy.
Consider installing motion-sensor lights in areas with less frequent use.
Explore solar-powered outdoor lighting options to reduce electricity consumption.
Energy-efficient lighting not only lowers utility bills but also reduces carbon footprint.

Water-Saving Bathroom Fixtures:

Replace old faucets and showerheads with low-flow models.
Install aerators on faucets to reduce water usage without sacrificing pressure.
Consider installing a dual-flush toilet to conserve water with each flush.
Repair any leaks promptly to prevent water wastage. Water-saving fixtures not only reduce water bills but also contribute to sustainable living practices.

Indoor Herb Garden (Eco-Friendly Project):

Now this is something new and more in tune with the origin of this website. No matter how much a tree grows, the roots cannot be forgotten and thus this indoor herb garden is one of our very favourite home renovation projects. 
Repurpose old containers or mason jars as planters.
Choose herbs that are easy to grow indoors such as basil, mint, or rosemary.
Use organic potting soil and natural fertilisers to nurture your herbs. Place the herb garden near a sunny window to maximise sunlight exposure.
Not only does an indoor herb garden provide fresh ingredients for cooking, but it also improves indoor air quality.
