Whether you want to increase your home’s resale value, need more space, or simply want a bit of a change, undertaking a renovation is a great way to give your home a much needed update. While many families avoid renovations because of the associated costs, by using budget friendly materials such as concrete, you will be able to make renovating a much more affordable prospect. Here are four great ways you can use concrete to renovate your home.
Update your kitchen or bathroom floor
It’s amazing how much of an impact a new floor can have on a room; it has the potential to brighten up your house, create the illusion of space, and of course add value. If you’ve got a tired looking vinyl floor in your kitchen, or chipped tiles in the bathroom, you may want to consider updating to a decorative concrete floor. Concrete is not only a low maintenance and cost effective flooring option, it is also available in a variety of decorative finishes including polished concrete, stenciled concrete or coloured concrete.
Concrete patio or deck
Installing a permanent outdoor entertainment area will add significant value to your home, and what better material to use for such an area than concrete. Avoid the maintenance and potential degradation (rot, termites etc.) associated with timber decking and opt for low maintenance, hard wearing concrete. Exposed aggregate is a great choice for an outdoor entertainment area as it has a natural looking finish and will integrate seamlessly with your garden/greenery.
If your concrete driveway is looking a bit worse for wear, it may be time to resurface it. Concrete resurfacing is an affordable, effective way to conceal superficial damage like surface cracks and stains and bring new life to your home. You can even opt for a coloured concrete driveway this time around to match your home’s exterior, which will instantly increase street appeal.
