The classic look of colonial homes are sought after by many home owners. From the outside, you have a state-like house, giving the feeling of sturdy opulence. There’s bring, decorative railings, pillars or elaborate trim. From the outside, you a presented with a charming house that can become a facade. To keep that same great feeling when walking into a colonial house, consider these renovation ideas that are realistic and practical to achieve.

 

Refinish The Flooring

The original facade of the home was approximately 40' wide, 60' if you include the garage that is behind the wall to the righ

 

One of the most attractive feature of a colonial home, the hardwood floors can always use a face lift. Depending on the year of your classic home, consider refinishing the floors to give a great first impression to anyone walking in the house. If you would like to do a full refinish, you can sand and then finish. Or, you can do a light finishing using a fresh coat to the existing wood. This process can be done in just 1-2 days (depending on how many square feet you have). Additionally, it adds a major upgrade to the house interiors.

 

Out With The Old Living Room

The classic large living room is a staple in colonial homes. Often times, these living rooms were set for formal reception. You can easily upgrade these living room areas into much more interactive spaces. Using bright colors and modern furniture, get creative by adding a small office, comfortable seating or areas to entertain. Of course, you probably love to entertain people more than greet them formally. Best of all, they are an easy reno for any colonial living room, making it modern.

 

Stainless Steel Kitchen Upgrades

You’re already picturing some fresh floors and new living room, next walk into the kitchen that currently has it’s old cabinets and appliances. Using a single paint color, like white, you can tie together all the elements of the kitchen cabinets. Then, add stainless steel appliances. It is a worthy investment for your home. The value is welcome considering Klamen Real Estate. More importantly, it will look great, giving your kitchen a brand new look.

 

Create An Open Concept

The best part about colonial homes is the space they have. Unfortunately, some older colonial houses have a terrible layout. You feel like you are cramped into narrow hallways or awkward corridors. Instead, tear down some walls (after doing safety checks, of course). The open concept in a colonial style home can create so much more space and a bigger feeling in your home. With the right help, this renovation project is a smart way to connect everyone in the house.

 

Let In The Light

After successfully putting in an open concept floor plan, you should continue to let natural light into the house as much as possible. Even without an open concept, lighting is a quick and easy upgrade brighten up the classic colonial home. You can install new windows, clean up old ones or adjust drapery to let more beautiful lighting in. Make your colonial home feel as light and airy as possible to overcome any older, closed off impressions. You and your guests will enter the house feeling more upbeat and comfortable for this simple change.

 

These are all great renovation ideas for colonial homes. Whether you live in a classic or newly constructed colonial home, take these easy renovation ideas in to consideration. If they don’t apply right now, they might work for you in the future, especially if you plan to sell your home fast. In the meanwhile, enjoy the new looking floors, living room, kitchen, floorplan and lighting. You’ll be glad you took on these sensible renovations for your home.
