Ideas for Giving Your Home a Much Needed Facelift

Whether you've lived in your home for a long time and want to make some upgrades or you've recently purchased a house in need of some work, there’s a chance you're wondering what kind of changes you either want or need to make. While the choice is yours, consider some ideas that can really improve the look of your home.

Major Room Renovations

One smart plan, particularly if you're planning to sell the house in the near future, is to completely gut and renovate the kitchen and bathroom. You could give the other rooms a facelift too; however, buyers are often particularly interested in new kitchens and bathrooms. Check out some modern and popular styles by browsing through houses that have recently sold in the neighborhood for high prices. Even when you're not looking to move, renovating the kitchen and bathroom can help you to enjoy your own home more.

Increased Energy Efficiency

Opting for greater energy efficiency in your home makes the property more marketable and in the meantime can save you money on bills; not to mention this move also allows you to be kinder to the environment. Sustainable home renovations could include solar panels or more energy-efficient appliances, such as air conditioners and washing machines. When you're purchasing new appliances, you should also ask about how to use the unit in the most efficient way.

New Siding

Getting new siding for your home can completely change the exterior appearance. This improvement can make a home that is many decades old look brand new. You can also choose colors that reflect the style of the house. For example, you might go for a sunny yellow or a powder blue to give off a cottage vibe. A stark white or regal silver could provide your home with a luxurious aesthetic.

Flooring Repairs

Replacing the flooring in your whole house can certainly change the home's appearance. However, you don't have to make such grand renovations if your time and budget do not allow you for doing so. You could replace the floor in one or two of the rooms. You might decide to have the wood floors redone in the living room or dining room. Another option is to get some throw rugs to change up the vibe in the bedrooms or den.

Giving your home a facelift is a way to feel better about your living space and to bring it into the modern era of living. When you get home from a long day at work, you can have a retreat in your own paradise without racking up high energy bills. There’s also the added incentive that these types of renovations can increase the resale value of your house as well.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
