Remodels | January 10, 2019

Simple remodelling ideas for old homes can be an easy way to transform and freshen up almost any room in a house. At Ridgepoint Homes, we know that, while remodelling an old house can have its challenges, home remodelling projects can be the perfect way to add a much-needed personal touch. That is why we offer a range of remodel services for homes of all shapes and sizes.

Simple Remodelling Ideas for Transforming an Old Home

Some simple remodelling ideas for old homes include but are not limited to:

1. Changing Wall Colours and Adding Dimension

One of the simplest ways to remodel an old home is to change up the appearance of the walls. Consider freshening up the paint on the walls with a new coat of paint or a brand-new paint colour. For homeowners who want to add a bit more personality to a space, consider putting wallpaper on the walls instead. Since wallpaper has begun to regain popularity over the years, there are many different modern options available.

Homeowners who want to reflect the traditional elements of owning an old home can also add wainscoting or crown molding to the walls to add an extra level of dimension and architecture to the room.

2. Updating the Kitchen

Since the kitchen is most often the focal point of old homes, updating the kitchen can provide added value to the home. While remodelling a kitchen is not always an easy task, opting to change out smaller elements at a time, such as updating appliances and countertops, can make the process less stressful.

If you are thinking about completely remodelling the kitchen in an old house, hiring a professional to handle the job can save you both time and stress in the long run. A professional will also be able to ensure that all elements are installed properly at that your old house can handle certain updates, such as new appliances.

3. Replacing Outdated Hardware

Many old homes often have outdated hardware that has become rusty or corroded over the years. Simply updating hardware in the bathroom or kitchen can help improve the style and aesthetics of the space. Make sure to select hardware designs and styles that match the decor of the home or will work well with other updates you have planned.

4. Converting Rooms

In many cases, old homes tend to have more rooms than are actually needed. If your old home has extra bedrooms, a den, or an office that you are not using, consider repurposing the room by simply replacing the furniture. You can also hire a contractor to knock down walls between rooms in order to create a more open concept floorplan.
