Although most people are incredibly happy with their home when they buy it, many people will begin to have thoughts of how they could renovate their homes immediately. It may not be the first priority and you may want to wait until you pay off the home until you start, but eventually the thought will come. If you’re beginning to think about renovations, securing your VA Home Loan is the perfect way to finance it. Below, we’ve compiled a list of a few renovation ideas to get you started. Check it out and see if you get inspiration from any of them!
Remodeling your bathroom is one of the first things that come to mind for anyone considering a remodel. Many older homes come with porcelain tub and shower combos, and a basic linoleum countertop and floor. Although this is the case with most homes, everyone dreams of getting to shower in a walk-in shower complete with beautiful tile, and maybe even a heated tile floor to match it. Possible renovations in your bathroom include tile countertops and floors, a walk-in shower, and a jacuzzi tub. If you can’t remodel the rest of your home, at least you’ll have a beautiful bathroom that you and your loved ones will definitely get a lot of use out of!
Having a beautiful kitchen can make your house the destination for family gatherings and get-togethers with friends. One renovation most people will complete when renovating their kitchen is enlarging the space. Whether you need more room because your family has grown or you need more room for utensils and food, making your kitchen bigger can prove useful in many situations. However, it is a renovation that can only be achieved if your house’s design allows it. You must have a wall you can break down somewhere, and there has to be space that can be taken away from another room. If you want to change the look of your kitchen without a big demo project, you can go the tile route with the kitchen as well, implementing a tile backsplash and floors, and a solid granite countertop.
This last renovation is one that is more for fun than anything else. Every film fanatic has dreamed of having a home theater, and it’s entirely possible. Gone are the days of going to the theater when you have your own theater at home. You can opt for a massive TV for higher picture quality, or you can go with the projector screen if you want the classic feel of a movie theater. The huge viewing screen coupled with surround sound will truly make for an incredible viewing experience. And of course, no home theater is complete without comfy sofa chairs.
