A home improvement project isn’t only for husbands and men to manage. There are many cases where women need to deal with the project themselves, due to divorce and other issues. It is important for them to improve the house for remodelling purposes and increase the overall values. This is actually not a difficult thing to do for women, because normally, they are responsible for most of decisions in the household. They often have strong decisions regarding home purchases, renovation and remodelling, even in the presence of their husbands. Obviously, men often have their own preferences, such as larger garages or a more improved area of solitude inside the house, which is often known as the “cave”. In reality, men in the families follow the women’s lead in terms of decision-making process.
In general, women are needed during the home improvement projects, because men don’t really pay much attention to specific details, such as windows treatments, draperies and others. Men could have less innovative decisions, because they tend to choose normal colors for everything, such as gray and brown. Men also choose simpler, low-maintenance details so they won’t need to repair or fix things repeatedly. If men are told to decide, they will choose durable, industry-grade furnishing, appliance, cabinetry, mirrors, tiles, sinks and faucets. Visual appeal will be considered a lower priority for them. So, it makes sense that women should be included in the process, so things can be made more beautiful and appealing. One area that women should have a big involvement is kitchen.
When it comes to improving kitchen, women should be given the decision on how knobs are changed and cabinetry is refinished. There are many details that we need to consider. They could combine ceramic sink with specific color with unique faucet so they can get desired effects. If men are told to design it, they will use much less inspiring combinations. In fact, when improving the kitchen, men could simply rip everything out and change them completely.
In reality, new tiling at small areas of the house and newly painted walls could already make things much improved. Some minor additions in lighting could also help us modernize and transform the whole effort. By working together, men and women could make a compromise to find a solution with balanced functions, reliability and visual appeals. When improving the house, it is also important to let in more light and this could make the interior looks more spacious.
When remodelling bathroom, women should incorporate their feminine side and they could add specific elements such as olive green details and others. They could also choose sliding glass door with fibreglass insert. On the other hand, men could choose things like jet tubs and other less feminine details. Again, it is important for husband and wife to integrate and find a compromise to their solutions. Another big decision is the color of the paint for the whole house and again, it is an opportunity for both men and women to find compromises.
