How To Reclaim Your Property From Disarray

These days it’s hard enough to pay your mortgage, let alone having to pay the big bucks for a whole host of home repairs. Busy lifestyles or tight budgets are just two reasons why we can sometimes let the appearance of our properties slip. However, there are some things you can do to fix up your house that are totally worth the investment.

So if your property has been neglected for a long stretch of time and you're looking for ways to make it look as good as new then read on, our guest contributor Emily has put together 5 simple ways to reclaim your property from disarray.

Landscaping
It’s easy to let your garden fall into disarray quite quickly if you don't keep up to date with regular maintenance and upkeep. The garden is also an area that becomes more difficult to reclaim the longer you leave it. It may be a good idea to looking into landscape construction in Perth if you feel like you're not up to the job yourself. Well thought-out landscape construction can really change the look of your entire property, making it look well-designed and cared for.

When redesigning your garden consider factors such as the existing landscape, the types of plants to use, the addition of outdoor entertaining areas and whether or not to add paving (as this may be easier to maintain than grassy areas).

Kitchen
Replacing cupboard doors and cabinets is often a more cost-effective way of updating the look of your kitchen without the need of a full renovation. If your kitchen feels less functional than it once was due to neglect then it may be time to invest in a complete remodel. Be sure to consider updating all outdated appliances which may no longer be energy efficient. Tiles, stainless steel and gloss finishes are also a good option for those who are looking to create a kitchen that is easier to keep clean.

Replace Exterior Doors and Windows
Your exterior doors and windows can become dirty, weathered and outdated if they are not well looked after. Sometimes there is no other option than to completely replace them in order to make your house feel like a home again. There are a number of reasons to replace your exterior doors and windows such as improved security and making your home more energy efficient. When considering new windows and doors aim to use materials, colours and finishes that are in keeping with the existing design features.

Bathroom
Having a bathroom which has seen better days can really make you fall out of love with your home. If your bathroom is in relatively good order then you may only need to replace items such as taps, cabinet fronts and accessories.

If there are problems with the plumbing then a full renovation may be in order.

Bear in mind that leaking water can lead to mould and damp if left for long periods of time. Fixing leaks and broken taps could save you big bucks in the future. It’s also important to think about which bathroom items are worth spending money on and which are not.

Paintwork
Giving your property a fresh coat of paint is an excellent way of making it look and feel clean and refreshed. What’s more, painting is often something that you can do yourself in your own time. Painting all interior and exterior walls in colours that compliment the home's existing design features can greatly improve the appearance of your property for little cost. Exterior fences or divided walls can also be quickly and easily improved with a lick of paint.

Hopefully, the above points have given you some inspiration on how to regain control of your property and reclaim it from mess and disorder. Choosing the correct materials and design features with low maintenance can ensure that your property is easier to maintain in the future and looks good for longer.

Till next time... reclaim your home from disorder!
