Moving in to an old house? Or is your house alone simply old? It doesn’t matter, if you are moving in or already in it, eventually a time will come where the need to perform a full restoration of your house is present.
Houses like all things deteriorate over time, old houses are constantly being upgraded without changing its style to bring about a retro new-old age look. And you can do the same. If you happen to move in to an old home don’t simply demolish it, embrace it and improve upon it. This is how you begin.
Starting from the Ground Up
Begin your house restoration from the ground, with proper assessment of its foundation and structure. Chances are the house is strong enough to even add a whole new floor but then this becomes a remodeling not a restoration. Check up the pillars, the cracks on the wall, places where the paint has worn off and water has clogged. Have an expert perform a one day assessment and suggest your next step. It could mean demolishing certain parts or even just letting it be to bring out an old rustic look. Look at this page if you need a house or roof restoration.
Be sure to look into the roof, due to daily exposure to sunlight and the elements, chances are your roof is one of the most deteriorated parts of your house. Call upon some qualified roofers to perform a roof restoration and bring about a beautiful new outlook to your home. The process alone begins with a proper assessment of your roof, a thorough wash after broken tiles are replaced and then once all repairs are completed and a final wash is performed, a new color is added.
Let the Colors Speak Out
When bringing out a modern look to a new old you can’t go wrong with an effective color combination to make a striking difference. Be sure to use white in the right places, the color alone brings about a very pure, futuristic scene and works well with whatever furniture you decide to add later on. Don’t be like the old by having your walls and pillars in plain single color, mix it up, and add some designs to it especially on the ceilings if they are concrete. Be sure to not go overboard in designs as it will look gaudy. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
ShapeAnd don’t just stop at your walls and ceilings, look to your doors and windows, some of the first things that strike the eyes of the outsider and visitors who come into your home. Go with the traditional design by including restored antique looking doors and window frames and you will end up with a beautiful new house with an old look.
