How many times would you say that you and your housemates walk through or use the living room in one day? How about the bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom? These areas of your home are considered high traffic because someone is always walking through them or using them to relax, cook, bathe you name it.
When you want to remodel your home, high traffic rooms should be given priority because these are the areas that show the most daily wear and tear. Something as simple and nice as a wood floor could make all the difference in the look, feel, and durability of your rooms. You should also choose simple and comfortable over trendy.
Here are other ideas for remodeling high traffic rooms in your home.
Flooring Choice Matters
In high traffic rooms, flooring is paramount. You don’t want to trip on a frayed, cheap rug that’s been walked over a thousand times. Flooring is where you should invest a bit more of your budget. Hardwood flooring is a good idea because it’s durable and lasts for a long time with care, but you can cover it with massive area rugs for both warmth and comfort.
Multipurpose Furniture Could Change Your Home Life
Multipurpose furniture is a game changer, especially in a busy home. For example, an ottoman that doubles as a storage space ensures comfort and an extra place to seat, while also keeping a room free from clutter.
Shelves, Boxes, and Storage Space Galore!
When your home is busy, you need organization to keep things in top-notch shape. Keep clutter down with well-organized knickknacks and everyday items on bookshelves, in storage totes, or on rack shelves. It’s easier to organize when each room has its own method of storage.
Remodeling high traffic rooms in your home can be quite the challenging endeavor, but it’s not impossible. Remember to stick with comfort and let your personal style shine through in the colors you choose for your décor.
