Imagine What Your House Could Look Like For Thanksgiving.. Do you need to Remodel?

A walk through treasures.

Let’s take a trip. Relax, you do not have to pay for the gas or food…yet. Our trip will take us through the most treasured moments you had in that beloved home. Close your eyes. Let me lead you over the dark hardwood floors that seemed cold under foot. As we walk through your home, you feel the soft carpet between your toes, supporting each step. Smell that? The welcoming scent of fresh bake cookies in that silver and black oven that once housed that large turkey for the Thanksgiving holiday. Each appliance appears to shine, clean and pleasant. The tan tiled floor feels like ice beneath your bare feet. You trace your fingers over the grooves between each tile over the surrounding counter tops. Come, stand by me. See the beautiful gardens through the clean glass windows.
Let’s continue this trip through time as we walk to the large bathroom that can house cities. Okay, maybe just a small town. As we walk through the door, we see the big circular bathtub next to the double white sinks and silver faucets. The surrounding walls appear beautiful with the white rose wallpaper. Heaven knows all to well the pleasures of sinking beneath the hot water within the deep tub before you.


Behold the signs of change.

Open your eyes slowly and behold the horrors of time. Don’t cry. That peeling wallpaper, stained with mold and mildew, can be brought back to the beauty it once was. As you look over the double sinks, now cracked and covered in soap scum, you feel the desire to back away slowly praying for it to go away. Relax, you are safe. Look at the dirt caked within the tiles over the bathroom floor, as well as throughout the kitchen. Missing our trip into the past yet? The cabinets are packed with containers ready to fall out onto the floor, if you can open the screeching doors.
I suppose by this time you are ready to remodel this unpleasant mess and bring it back to its former glory. Now you can. You can start by replacing those old appliances that are covered in stains. Adding new appliances is a great start to replacing the old with fresh luxuries. The next thing that should be fixed is the plumbing to allow the toilet to flush properly, rather than flushing ten gallons of water. That is enough for a short shower, but no showering in toilet water…gross.
Walking through your beloved home, you notice the large tub that is now covered in mildew and stains from time. The back-splash in the kitchen appears faded with water stains, and the cabinets appear as if they are going to fall onto the floor. As you open the dishwasher, you are forced to remove the containers that would have been stored in the cabinets if you were able to open them. No longer must your treasured home suffer. It is time to remodel.
