Home Remodeling

Quick Updates for Your Home in 2023

Modernizing an outdated home that has been neglected can be difficult. Your entire house does not need to be renovated. Small changes can be made all over your house to give it a more contemporary appearance. These little tasks can help the process appear less overwhelming, let you save money, and let you concentrate on what you want from a significant remodel.

Here are five quick methods to give your house a trendy makeover.

Upgrade Your Appliances and Fixtures

Many older homes still have hardware made of brass or gold. It’s remarkable how little things can have such a large impact on a home. To give your house a fresh look, you have countless possibilities of finishes and fashions. The best part is that you can do it yourself quickly over the weekend. You don’t have to work with experts!

Replacing appliances, however, are more difficult and expensive. There are numerous models available, including refrigerators, dishwashers, and ovens. Depending on your priorities and budget, this may need you to spread it out over a longer period of time. However, replacing outdated appliances with more contemporary models will enhance the look and functionality of your house.

Walls, Floors, and Countertops Should Be Updated

The use of wallpaper is increasing. It’s crucial to keep in mind, though, that outdated trend and decor can give a house a more outdated appearance. A room can look dated if the paint is faded. By cleaning the area and applying a fresh coat of paint, you can maximize the space. A room’s antiqued mirror can add visual interest and a splash of color.

Even if it costs more than other improvements, replacing carpet with gorgeous wood, laminate, or tile may significantly improve a space. If you do a lot of research, you can frequently find excellent choices that are on sale at your local flooring provider. You can clean and refinish hardwood floors for a more modern appearance. Updating and maintaining your floors can be a selling point if you intend to move.

New countertops will also be welcomed by prospective homebuyers. The expense of this house improvement may be high. The options of laminate, concrete and engineered stones may all be reasonably priced. More so than ever, granite is currently more inexpensive. We advise property owners to examine the state of their cabinets if they are considering installing kitchen countertops. It is typical for older cabinets to grow brittle, and ultimately, your cabinets will require replacement, even if you simply want to replace the countertops. Countertops and cabinets both need to be taken out and replaced. This will prevent you from spending money on countertops twice. This is why the complexity and expense of this particular project may increase.

If you really want to stay within your budget, you could even refinish your countertops. There are several items that appear like faux granite, but cost a lot less. Concrete countertops made at home are also becoming increasingly popular. But keep in mind that reducing expenses typically involves losing quality. These goods are usually temporary and sometimes helpful, but they are easily broken and need to be refinished or replaced quickly. It is essential to engage pros to complete these types of work correctly if you are unsure that you can perform them. Even while it might cost more up front, it will be worthwhile in the long run.

Create a Unified Color Scheme and Flexible Design

Another excellent technique to remodel an outdated house is with a coordinated and elegant color combination. The backdrop of neutral walls is perfect for accents and color pops in home design. Use the same color family throughout your house to keep everything feeling beautiful and harmonious. If your decor changes frequently, it’s simpler to select neutral paint colors. They suit various accent colors beautifully.

Even if you don’t have the budget to take down walls, there are numerous other ways to make your floor plan appear larger. The placement of your furniture should make it simple to go from one room to the next. Keep the area between walkways and thresholds, clear of junk.

Updating Interior Lighting

Although upgrading the lighting in your home might not be your first choice, we promise that this change will significantly improve how you feel. In many older homes, the kitchen has a single rectangular fluorescent light and the bedrooms and living rooms have fanlight kits. These fixtures aren’t terrible, but they don’t distribute light evenly and can make a room dark.

Let’s start with the outside of modern homes. Visitors initially notice this when they arrive. By painting your front door, adding color to your landscaping, and installing outside lighting, you may improve the curb appeal of your house. This is a wonderful job we completed for a client: we gave her front yard charm and character by adding custom shutters. We also provide iron doors to enhance the beauty and luxury of your home’s exterior.

A complete renovation can be a fantasy come true, but it is not always possible. Until you have the money for a complete remodel, these are excellent ways to refresh your house.

GI Construction - January 2024 I do not give 5 star ratings – As a process improvement professional, there is always room for improvement. 4 star is fabulous, but since this is an algorism I will deviate from my norm. In 2021 I had gone out to bid, only to find out that most construction and supply houses had prices that I found to be unacceptable. Products such as shower heads, faucets and cabinets were priced extremely high, they were also hard to get. So, we put this on hold and did smaller projects; outdoors, flooring, kitchen, etc. to show you we were getting introduced to construction projects. In October 2023, we went out to bid on renovating our 30-year-old, 2.5 bathrooms in Las Vegas. I reviewed many companies and found 3 that were reviewed well and had no issues with the board of contractors. After review of their costs and discussing how they would work the project, we decided on GI. They started the work when we had purchased all the materials that we needed to purchase, (shower heads, cabinets, basins, tile for the showers and floors, etc. They started their day at 7 am and worked to 3 PM. They take pride in the work and make sure it is done correctly. As an example, Jose (one of the tile guys) did the main bathroom shower and flooring. He worked his artistry in making it extremely beautiful. He would cut a piece for one of the benches, use it on top and take the other piece he just cut and place it in front, so it was a continuation. He did this on each of the benches and step over in the entrance. Just look closely at the main shower enclosure and you will see the quality. Problems yes! We were phasing in the project the main bathroom and ½ bath first, then the guest bathroom. After the main bathroom was completed, I turned on the hot water in the glass vessels we had picked out. I was waiting for the water in the shower to get warm. I turned around and saw the water was hot going into the vessel, so I turned it off – I thermal shocked the glass, it broke, fell to the floor, chipped the new tile and generally made things a mess! I called the team manager (Valentin) and told him what had happened, his response was “No problem - We’ll take care of it.” So, I reordered the glass vessels and got them re-installed. The tile I repaired with a chip kit I had used when we had redone the tile the prior year. The other issue we encountered was we lived in the home during the construction. Dust everywhere and constantly cleaning to keep the house livable. The bottom line to me is the quality of the people that are doing the work and their dedication to the customer’s complete satisfaction is one of the things that made this less arduous. The entire project took 7 weeks; 2 weeks delay due to our buying the wrong products and having to find replacement products. The GI team worked with us, guiding us to right suppliers and helping wherever they could. I will put pictures of GI Construction’s finished work and during the project. Hopefully you will be able to tell their quality. Just a side note: Valentin and his teams kept this project going Monday thru Friday. They don’t work on the weekends, but pulled a half day on Saturday a couple of times to meet my schedule. I can’t say enough of Valentin’s professionalism! The customer is always in the forefront of his mind, making them feel good, lowering their anxiety about the project.

We reached out to GI Construction to do some work for our bathroom remodel and could not be happier with our experience. They were professional from start to finish, always on time, answered any questions I had throughout the project, and just did a great job overall. During our planning stage Isaac really took his time to ensure that the work they were doing was going to be both functional and practical. Both he and Valentin wanted to make sure that they were giving us the best possible product and went over every possible design to help us choose the best one for our needs. In a time where good, trustworthy contractors are hard to find, GI Construction sets a standard that should be held across the industry. Thank you GI Construction for all your work, it was worth every penny!

We hired GI construction to take over a small bathroom remodel of a shower. The first contractor we hired did a horrible job, we lost money and had to terminate his services in the middle of tiling. Issac the owner and Valentin the project supervisor met with us and went over everything step by step giving us confidence that the nightmare construction would be turned around. So glad we chose GI construction, our walk in shower turned out beautifully! Long story short, don’t cheap out, go with a professional! My husband and I would use GI construction again. We love our new shower! Services performed: shower remodel

We really wanted to have our master bathroom reconfigured to accommodate a nice walk-in shower and have an old jetted tub removed. After contacting several companies with little to undesirable responses we contacted GI Construction. Isaac responded to our house the very next day and observed what we envisioned. He was vey knowledgeable and forthright in his assessment of our project. We contracted with GI Construction and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Valentin and Roberto came to the house to establish a plan for construction and a timeline. Roberto was a true craftsman and insured every aspect of our construction was done with strict precision. The walk-in shower and associated construction was done in a timely manner and with ultimate concern for our pleasure and acceptance. If you are looking for a "professional contractor" to do your construction project look no further than GI Construction - you won't be disappointed. We would highly recommend them for any project you may encounter. Thank You GI Construction for providing us with a beautiful and functional master bath !!

Would highly recommend for their services. ** Thank you Isaac & Valentin for making our bathrooms look amazing!**

After searching and obtaining many bids from different construction companies, Isaac with GI Construction provided us with a low cost, complete and solid option that did not hide or leave open any unknown fees. There methods of a simple TI were perfect for our needs as well as saving us thousands on unneeded expenses. I'd personally recommend GI for any project small or big.

My project manager Valentin was so helpful and very responsive with any issues. Foreman Jorge went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with all the finish work and he and his crew stayed late on a Friday to finish the job. They even moved my very large headboard back in from the garage. All workers were professional and polite. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using in the future.

We worked with Isaac, the owner and Valentin, the project manager and their amazing crew. We couldn't be happier with the end project! We had a water leak from an upstairs tenant so the whole bathroom had to be redone and a wall in the bedroom on the other side plus we had some plumbing and wiring done as well. I would love to leave a picture but couldn't see where to add it.
