People often say that “home is where the heart is”.  No wonder all of us want to come home to a place that is comfortable, clean and for lack of better word “homey”.  There really is no place like home so no matter how awesome other places are, there is a sense of belonging and security in being right at your own home.

However, just like anything else that we own, our precious home is also subject to wear and tear.  Eventually, there is no amount of cleaning that you can do to bring it back to how it was.  That is why occasional home remodeling is inevitable.  Regardless of how careful you are with our home, there will come a time when you have to spend a little for it and lift a finger or two to bring it back to its former glory.

2. The Kitchen

The bathroom and the kitchen are prone to repairs and tile replacements for the simple reason that they are the areas of the house that get wet a lot.  In time, all the years of being soaked in water will take its toll. See this helpful post on Remodeling Your Kitchen.

4. The Exterior

The exterior, on the other hand, is most subject to wear and tear because it gets soaked whenever it rains and really gets the beating from the sun during the summer seasons. For your exterior, sometimes all you need is a paint job for your house to look like new again.  Why don’t you make it a family project and get everyone involved.  It’s a fun and cost efficient way to bond.  It can be productive too.
