Personal Thoughts on Our Home Renovation Projects

Starting a new life in Fort Lauderdale has been a pleasure in a lot of ways. After completing several home restoration projects, living in our home has been nothing but pure bliss and comfort. Seeking the services of professional specialists on water damage has to offer had been one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. Now, we’ve decided to initiate the second phase of our home renovation project. 

Painting Job

This project means that I can soon achieve that picture-perfect home I’ve been fantasizing about. The idea of fresh paint and new ambience excite me; although it feels weird to have the male workers show up early in the morning to do the job, i needed to contract a house painting Miami service

In this case, waking up early would be the challenge on my part. On ordinary days, wherein I work from home, I basically roll out of bed and face my laptop. For the next few days, I would have to make some effort to look like an organized, well-dressed and well-mannered housewife who cares a lot about her home. 

Outdoor lighting 

Part of our project is to have new lights installed in our outdoor patio. My husband suggested this so we can entertain guests and have dinner al fresco right where we can see the sky, the moon and the stars. This project will also create a wonderful venue for my weekly girl bonding with my girlfriends.

My husband won’t have to worry anymore about picking me up drunk in some place. I can have wine nights comfortably with my friends in our well-lit patio. And in the instance that I couldn’t handle my alcohol level, I can just conveniently make my way crawling towards our bedroom.

Garage renovation

We decided to have a major garage renovation – not just specifically for cars; but for my husband to have his “man cave” where he can spend his time doing stuff. Our garage is all planned for a dual purpose which means; a parking space for the cars and a work station where my husband can play handyman.

This project is for him to have his own personal space in times when he’d rather walk through hell than to deal with me. So having a nice and comfortable garage is a win-win situation for both of us. 

Installation of new fixtures

Installation of new faucets and a new shower head completes the second phase of our home renovation project. I look forward to seeing and touching those shiny new fixtures that would add some glam to our bathroom and kitchen. I specifically chose the types and designs which makes me even more excited about the outcome.

We even had to shed off more than a few bucks for the fixtures because we are aiming for quality. I particularly love the large high turbo-pressure shower head chrome bath that will soon be installed in our private bathroom. Something wild and exciting may come out of it. And who …

How I Envisioned Life in Fort Lauderdale: Home Renovation & Restoration Projects

fort lauderdale city decor

When I moved to Fort Lauderdale, I envisioned a bright and sunny home that is welcoming and full of good vibes. I wanted a place that can make going home something to look forward to. And so I came up with some home renovation and restoration plans to jazz up my home and make it look like something I had fantasized before I even moved in. 

The Planning Stage

Planning the renovation and restoration was perhaps the most crucial. My husband and I had to agree on a budget and identified the areas that require treatment. To protect the structural integrity of our new home, we had to consider factors such as the safety of the water system, presence of molds and moisture build up in confined spaces.

We agreed on some changes such as the addition of a walk in closet which is every woman’s dream, a nice bathroom, more storage spaces in the kitchen and re-painting of both interior and exterior walls. 

We finalized our plans with the most professional team of specialists that work on water damage fort lauderdale residents can rely on. Their extensive services made it possible for us to minimize the cost of the project since they can cover almost everything we have in mind.

They provided us a reasonable quotation and a clearly itemized job order. This made it easier for us to prioritize some areas that require immediate treatment; and also encouraged us to save for other future projects. 

The Actual Process of Renovation and Restoration

The project was implemented right away and as planned. The water damage specialists started checking the water system and identified areas where there’s water retention and mold infestation.

I am particularly concerned about these aspects because I wanted to make sure that we have safe water source. Furthermore, I consider molds as our enemy because my husband has allergy issues and I wouldn’t want our first few weeks in our new home to become traumatic. 

The renovation project was quite stringent and my husband was completely hands-on; but the specialists managed to meet our expectations well. As things gradually fell into place, I started to envision having a blissful and comfortable life in our newly restored home. It was everything I’ve always wanted. 

Here’s a checklist of “dream projects” for your home which you might want to consider;

  • Repainted walls that create a suitable vibe
  • Safe water system
  • Clean, fresh and breathable air in all areas
  • A minimalist bedroom with good lighting and relaxing atmosphere
  • A pretty and well-lit walk in closet with full-length mirrors
  • “His and Hers” bathroom sink and comfortable toilet
  • A good and high-quality shower head with access to hot/cold water
  • Lots of storage spaces and closed cabinets in the kitchen
  • Large kitchen sink
  • A mini wine cellar 
  • Breakfast nook
  • Accent lights to highlight some areas in the dining and living rooms
