When building or renovating a home you’re going to be faced with a lot of questions. You’re also going to be forced to have to give a lot of answers and make a lot of choices. Everybody wants the best that they can get, but often this comes at a high price.
In this regard, there are several things that you can afford to do cheaply. This might include doorknobs and outlet covers, towel racks, and other features that go relatively unnoticed. It doesn’t matter to most people if these aren’t top of the line. However, there are certain features in the home that are best made into a statement. They’re places where there is high traffic, a lot of focus, and a lot of time spent. These places are where you want to put your money.
Here are the top features in your home that you want to make a statement.
Your Staircases and Railings
Staircases and railings are parts of a home that people don’t often think about today. It used to be much different. Grand staircases were a thing to be envied and the fancier your railings, the better off you were and the more revered you were in society. It was an emblem of class. Today, it might not be the same, but this isn’t an area you should forgo.
Well designed and thought out staircases and railings will be a focal point in your home, especially if your home features an open design where the upstairs is visible from below or if the stairs are in a highly visible area of the house. Spend your money on these aspects and you’ll be amazed how much it changes the overall look and feel of your home.
Today more than ever it seems that people want the top of the line as far as kitchen appliances go. And why shouldn’t they? The kitchen is the part of the home where most of the entertaining is done. If your home features an open concept design that carries over from the kitchen to the living room, it’s especially important that you invest your money into these features.
You’ll want something durable, sustainable, and pretty to look at. Stainless steel is a popular choice for kitchen appliances. It goes with everything, and instantly makes your home more valuable.
Where You Walk
The final thing that should be seriously considered is what kind of flooring you’re going to have. Flooring defines a space and it’s what everyone will be walking on, so of course it will go noticed. You don’t want to nix a floor option simply because it’s pricy. Consider your needs and the way your live your life in order to choose what’s right for you.
Floors that are priced lower tend to have less quality and be less durable. Choose to spend good money on your floors so that they will last as long as your home does.
