Historic Atlanta Home Restoration
The future is the past in home renovations
Refinishing old house fixtures like bathtubs, tile and cabinetry are the future of home redesign. The biggest trend today, that doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon, is to repurpose the once majestic features in our home. That means everything from your home’s old bathtub to intricate crown molding to light fixtures are being repurposed and reused. They are being reinvented not only for budget-friendly reasons but because it just makes good sense to bring back to life something that was made to last.
If you are lucky enough to own an older home in Atlanta, then you know the historical importance of saving your home and revitalizing it to its former glory. This isn’t just a trend; it’s a duty you have to fulfill as a homeowner with an older house. History has become so important to America. We are tracing our ancestors and learning more about our DNA and the family that shaped us into the people we are today. We are concerned about our country and are striving to preserve the past in any way we can. Our future really is our past and how we choose to honor it. That means your home should depict this as well.
There are so many shows on channels like #HGTV that show you how important it is to preserve our nation’s history by restoring old items, furniture, cars, and homes. We need to hold on to what made this nation great and the important take away from renovating old pieces of America is that they just don’t make things like they use to anymore. This includes not only the houses themselves but also the fixtures that went into creating them.
Older bathtubs, tile, and cabinetry were made to withstand the test of time. Unfortunately, years and years of neglect and abuse may have caused these fixtures in your home to become worn and weathered. The answer isn’t to replace. To save these fixtures and the history of your home, think about refinishing. Atlanta bathtub refinishing is the biggest trend in home remodeling for a multitude of reasons. Refinishing is a process that strips your old fixture, such as your bathtub, of its exterior coating (while not touching its original material), fixing any chips, cracks or holes and then applying a new coating. This new coating will not only revive your fixture and make it look brand new; it will protect it so that you can get many more years of use from it.
Refinishing is the number one way to take your old home fixtures and revitalize them to their original state. You aren’t harming the fixture, you are saving it. Top Gun Applied Surfaces has been refinishing Atlanta homes for years. This may be considered a trend but it has been around for many years and it will continue on for many more years ahead.
