Renovations do not necessarily mean that there was something that was damaged and it was high time for you to go ahead and fix that. Sometimes, renovating just mean you want things to change in your house to make things more efficient and easy to move around in. Most of the time, that can be the case. Though hiring people to do it may be costly, but then again everything in the world is never free. At least you will not have to do it all the time. You know, the kitchen and bath renovations.
In homes, there are some that have the kitchen and the dining room separated. That is a bit of a hassle if you are the mother and is the one cooking for your family. The best way to do about that is tear down the wall separating the two rooms and turn it into an island that instead of separates them completely, serves as an easy access to both the kitchen.
That would entitle you to buy stools so that your family members can just sit on it while talking to you as you cook. Having a sink on the island also benefits you the most since it is found in the middle of the entire room and you may not have to walk far to wash things. You can even put on a fruit display right beside it.
Putting fruit right where people can see it easily will entice them to eat some. That can be a good way for your kids to start eating something healthy for once. When food is visible, even when one is not hungry, they still tend to want to eat said food.
Whether we blame that on our human gluttony or not, use it to your advantage. Try not to forget the fire extinguisher. Always place it in a reachable sight and maybe a little closer to where a fire is mostly happening.
In terms of emergency, the best course of action is to abandon the food and make sure that there is no hazard of you and the house burning down into the ground. Try to avoid that. As for bathrooms, the one place a human could be themselves and enjoy solid alone time doing necessary bodily things, it would be nice if they were tiled and comfortable to be in.
Make sure that the place is bright too, just in case there might be emergencies where someone slipped and fell. At least with that light, the fallen idiot can easily be seen and pulled up right away. Showers that have a hot and cold option. Most countries do not have this option at their houses so count yourself lucky if you do.
Waking up freezing in the morning, it would terribly suck to be taking a cold bath. At least with the hot water, you can relax for a bit as you stare at the tiles and rethink what there is to rethink. Speaking of the tiles, of course, we all would want them to become pretty enough to look like something out of a magazine.
In that case, your tiles have to be brightly colored. This is it is easy to see dirt and mold that sticks there. That way, cleaning would become easy and less of a headache. Although, cleaning a bathroom is something a lot of would rather avoid. But then again, sometimes we just have no choice.
