A Series of Gradual Home Improvements
During the year, I’ve been making upgrades to my home. I pick a part of the home that I think needs to be changed, and then set a budget around it. My latest project was adding glass doors to the showers. The showers are standard bathroom showers that also function as a bathtub, but they used a shower curtain before I had the glass doors installed. Despite being big on making improvements to my home, I’m not willing to do them myself, unless it’s something minor. I used a company that supplies glass shower doors in NJ to have the installation done.
Since my latest project resulted in work being done in the bathrooms, I’ve been thinking about continuing with more bathroom projects. There is currently wallpaper in the bathrooms, and I think that they would look much better with a fresh coat of paint. Technically I could just paint over the wallpaper, but I don’t think that would really look right in the bathrooms. The wallpaper is rather old, since it came with the house. By adding a coat of paint, I’m not only making the bathrooms look good, I’m also preparing them for the future. I’ll probably get tired of the paint color and will eventually want to change it. I can easily put a new coat of paint down with a different color any time I want.
I’ve also been thinking about getting new faucets for the bathrooms. The faucets that are in the bathrooms now work perfectly fine, but they just look so old. I would rather have something more modern, like one of those faucets that can be turned on without even touching it. These faucets have special motion sensors in them that will detect hand movement and turn on the water. I bet doing the electrical wiring for those is difficult.
