Home Remodeling Crash Course: What I Learned the Hard Way

3 Remodeling Projects To Make Your Home More Welcoming

Strategically furnishing and decorating your home can make it feel quite welcoming. However, you might feel like it is still not as welcoming as you would like it to be. The most fitting furniture and decorations can only do so much when your house lacks in other ways. An excellent solution is to work on interior remodeling projects that can make a clear difference.


Neutral furniture with splashes of color through accents and decorations is an excellent strategy. Unfortunately, you might want more color than these things can do. Remodelers can paint your home in various rooms and on multiple features to satisfy your needs. The dining room, entryway, kitchen, and living room are worth painting because they are shared spaces.

As for specific features, you can opt to paint the ceiling, trim, doors, walls, and window frames. Remodelers will also help you pick a color scheme that looks attractive and welcoming.


Lighting improvements are another way to make your home look and feel more welcoming. Both artificial and natural lighting can make an enormous difference.

Natural Lighting

Allowing light to come through the windows is an easy and reliable way to get natural lighting. But sometimes, outside obstacles block most light from coming in. Remodelers can install windows where you know there are few to no obstacles in the way. These additions will greatly boost natural lighting in rooms that may be lacking otherwise.

Another way to bring in natural light is through skylight installation. Skylights get their sunlight from above, providing a unique lighting angle for your family to enjoy.

Artificial Lighting

Installing new light fixtures in your home can help you accomplish your goals. For instance, you can focus on lights that increase the overall brightness of each room. Chandeliers, pendant lights, recessed lights, or track lights are all viable options, depending on your specific situation.

A smart move is to work closely with remodelers to determine which artificial lighting installations you are most interested in to boost lighting inside each room.

Layout Change

Changing your home's layout can also make a noticeable difference in how inviting your home looks. Removing a single wall might open up the house and create an open layout. This may allow natural light from one room to flow into another, which can increase lighting overall.

Invest in these remodeling projects to make your home more welcoming in multiple ways.

One of the most challenging times for me as a homeowner was when my family was growing but my house was not. We were quickly running out of room and things felt cramped. That's when I started looking into the possibility of remodeling the house to add a couple of extra bedrooms and expand the living area. I had no idea how complex the process would be or what was involved, but I learned a lot along the way. Now that the work is done, I have created this site to help teach others what I didn't know going into the plans.
