Over time, the structure of your home will degrade and lose some of it’s function or aesthetic appeal. When you’ve decided it’s time renovate your home, you can attempt to do the repairs yourself.

What is Home Renovation?
Home renovation is different from home remodeling, although many people use the two terms interchangeably. By definition, home remodeling means you want to make significant changes in the structure, appearance, or function of specific areas of your home, or even your entire household. This involves things such as changing design schemes, changing room layouts and changing the way you use a room or larger area.
On the other hand, the definition of home renovation means you take areas of your home that are in disrepair and restore them to good working conditions that you can rely on for the foreseeable future. A renovation project can range in scale from minor touch-up work in a single room to major refurbishing efforts that cover both the interior and exterior of your household.
There are a number of reasons to renovate your home. For example, while you may love your home; living conditions in one or more rooms may have diminished or even led to significant decreases in your home’s overall function. You may also choose to renovate if you plan to sell your home sometime in the near future and want to maximize the market value of your property. Other common reasons for deciding on a home renovation include a need to fix specific safety issues in your home or a desire to increase your home’s energy efficiency.
A kitchen renovation restores specific elements of your kitchen or the entire room to good working order. Issues commonly addressed during this type of work include:
- Repair of damaged trim
- Replacement of defective built-in appliances
- Repair or replacement of damaged cabinets or drawers
- Replacement of damaged linoleum or other types of flooring
In some cases, the changes made during a kitchen renovation may eventually turn into remodeling work. For example, if you’re replacing damaged cabinets, you may decide to upgrade them with new cabinets that have a different layout or different design scheme. Similarly, you may decide to replace defective built-in appliances with different types of appliances that better suit how you currently use your kitchen.

- Broken shower enclosures
- Run down or damaged carpet
