House Renovation: From A Mother’s Point Of View

Every nook and cranny of your home was comforting when suddenly, an offer of a new beginning arrived knocking on your door. Straightaway, you saw your musty curtains, your dull furniture, and your boring lay-out. You recollected one quotation, “Do not do for tomorrow what you can do for today.” Unusual as it may seem, this quote grew more real to you than at any time that you have been a mother to three beautiful kids. Being the mother, you realized that you are the only one who can do it; the one who possesses the eye of the tiger for details. You hesitated; but were innervated when you have recalled seeing shows in the television and reading much about it on magazines. In a short moment you told yourself: My cognizance is enough! What you want to do at long last came out, encapsulated in one word: renovation!

Before we start getting giddy painting and buying things that we need, let us first be wise and make a checklist for our project: Are our sofas not as colorful as before? Do they possess a pigment that is becoming an attraction for germs and other microorganisms? Are our once cream-colored comfy bed turned into a gray-colored cushion with deep depressions? Does everything just seem defective to our eyes? If we responded yes to any of these questions, then our wandering view about our family’s future is just right. And we know for sure that our being perfectionist will not let this moribundity continue.

With all the careful scrutiny and budgeting, the process of renovation may really seem abstruse. It will incorporate a knowledge of reinventing things which may need the powers of an engineer; a plan of a new theme which may need the abilities of an architect; and of course, a basket of pixie dust (that will make your new home a picturesque of beauty) which may need the magic of a fairy. But who says we cannot be an interior designer? Who says mothers are just a crew of weaklings that cannot even hook a nail? Well, for the information of non-home makers, we are also capable of managing novel things; specially if it is for our dear families. With this vindication, we can now “borrow” our hubby’s bandoleer and arm it with our necessary weapons for house reinvention.

After our home check-up and budget computing, let us now finally begin with our project. The things that we may do are the following: Modify Colors – Color is everything; it affects our moods. We should find the perfect color that will fit onto the different personalities in our home; Get Over: Space is valuable; it is the key to lay-out. We should get over with the old, unaccomodating and cumbersome things we still keep in the house that gets it crowded; Add- The balance lies in addition and subtraction. If we take aside old things, the remedy is to replace them with new and definitely accomodating ones. These additions should not only be cozy to our family but also to the size of our home; and lastly, Creativity- Creativity is the cherry on top of our ice-cream. It is the component that gives vibrancy.

Uneasiness and Muscle Aches, these are the certain symptoms that we will experience after this project. At the end of our brave and tiring pursuit, we may be even marked as bizarre for our brave venture into something we are not really familiar with. But do not fret and regret, success or not, we surely earned something out of it. Just like what one quotation said, “Experience is what you get when you do not get what you want.” With a “new” home, we can now be rest assured that every nook and cranny is fine. We may not be experts on house renovation but luckily, we are moms; we know best.
