As Mother’s Day approaches, you probably are looking for gift ideas for the best mom in the world. This year, wouldn’t it be a great idea to give your mom something she can see and use every day for years to come? Home renovation is the perfect Mother’s Day gift! From cosmetic updates to more extensive renovation, check out these ideas.
Cosmetic Home Updates
If your mom’s home hasn’t been updated or remodeled since it was built, there could be a lot of opportunities to improve it cosmetically. You can arrange for a paint job or upgrade of fixtures, particularly in the kitchen and bathrooms. Lighting might also need some re-design to make the home brighter. Refacing or refinishing kitchen cabinets is another effective way to give a kitchen an easy facelift.
For an older parent, consider aging-in-place features, particularly in the bathroom. Think grab bars, non-slip flooring and lever-style faucets. Many aging-in-place features can also be considered universal home features and utilized not just by older adults, but young kids too.
Room Addition, Expansion or Conversion
If there are unused rooms, they can be converted into something that can be more useful for your mom. She might appreciate having her own home office or a home theater for entertainment. A craft room could be a good idea if your mom loves making things with her hands.
You can also have walls removed to expand a room and make for a bigger space. Meanwhile, if there’s too much extra space, building new rooms such as an additional bathroom can improve the home’s usability and value while adding convenience.
