You’ve seen the millions of renovation programs like Fixer Upper and Flip or Flop on HGTV and the countless others on television channels up and down your guide. Everyone seems to be renovating instead of building. And this trend doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. It makes perfect sense in today’s world. It’s not just financially friendly to renovate, it’s environmentally friendly as well.
House renovations can be anything from a simple lighting rewiring to completely gutting each room and everything in between. One thing that is increasingly important to homeowners is to restore as much of their home as possible. This includes bathtubs, tile, cabinets and even countertops. Older homes were built with solid cabinets, hard to replace tile and strong, solid bathtubs. These are items that were built to last. They weren’t made cheaply and they deserve to stay.
A simple and effective way to keep these old fixtures is to refinish them. Bathtub refinishing is a process where the old paint is stripped from the tub, any chips or cracks are repaired and then a new coating is applied. You keep the integrity of the original tub but now it looks brand new. It takes as little as two hours to complete and in just 24 hours, it’s ready to use again. The best part is, you can make it any color you want (or get rid of the nasty old color you don’t).
Kitchen cabinets were made with solid wood. They were built to remain in the house they were designed for. Over the years, grease and grime have built up over them and different homeowners used and abused them. They may even have painted over them a time or two. With cabinet refinishing, a similar process as bathtub refinishing is applied and those beautiful cabinets shine through again. Add new hardware and no one will ever know.
Tile surrounding your old tub doesn’t need to come down. Refinish it! With the same process, you can turn that dingy old tile into like new to go along with your new tub. You are still keeping the beautiful old tile that came with the house, but now you are giving it new life.
