Enhance, Don’t Renovate: A Hubby’s Guide to Transforming Your Home



Are you dreaming of a fresh and updated home but worried about the hefty price tag that often comes with a full renovation? Fear not! At Hire A Hubby, we believe that sometimes, all it takes to transform your property  is a little creativity, a splash of DIY magic, and some expert know-how. So, let’s explore how you can breathe new life into your home without breaking the bank.






Update Your Tapware



The bathroom and kitchen has an average lifespan of around 15 years which makes it easy for you to fall out of love with your bathroom/kitchen design before you know it. Updating your tapware can be a simple yet incredibly effective way to give your kitchen or bathroom a fresh, modern look. The taps and sinks in these spaces are not just functional; they also serve as design elements that can elevate the entire room. Whether you’re aiming for a sleek and contemporary vibe or a more traditional and timeless feel, choosing the right tapware can make all the difference.


Consider the finish of your tapware carefully. Matte black, brushed nickel, chrome, and brass are just a few of the options available. Each finish can dramatically alter the aesthetic of your space. Matte black offers a bold and minimalist look, while brushed nickel can create a soft, luxurious feel. Chrome provides a classic, shiny finish that’s easy to clean, and brass can add a touch of vintage elegance. Don’t forget to coordinate your tapware with other elements in the room, such as cabinet handles and lighting fixtures, to create a cohesive and harmonious design. With a simple tapware upgrade, you can enjoy improved functionality and a stylish transformation that breathes new life into your kitchen or bathroom.






Freshen Up Your Tiles



Updating your kitchen and bathroom tiles can be a game-changer when it comes to revitalising your living space and making it feel truly special. Over time, tiles can lose their luster, and grout can become discoloured or cracked, diminishing the overall aesthetic of these crucial areas in your home. However, with a bit of attention and creativity, you can turn things around without embarking on a full renovation.


Start by assessing your tiles. If they’re still in good condition but simply lack that wow factor, consider adding a fresh layer of grout. Regrouting can work wonders in rejuvenating the appearance of your tiles, making them look cleaner and more vibrant. Choose a grout colour that complements your tiles and overall design scheme, whether it’s a classic white or a contrasting shade for a more dramatic effect.


For a more comprehensive makeover, replacing your tiles entirely can transform your kitchen or bathroom into a space that feels brand new. You can opt for trendy subway tiles, intricate mosaic patterns, or even elegant natural stone options to infuse character and style into your space. The right tile choice can set the tone for the entire room, making it feel not just refreshed, but truly special and tailored to your unique taste.


Whether you decide to regrout or invest in new tiles, these updates can enhance the aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen and bathroom, giving your home that extra touch of charm and sophistication. It’s a cost-effective way to make your living spaces feel special and inviting without the need or cost of a major renovation.






Paint Your Home



Whether you’re looking to revitalise tired, faded walls or completely change the colour scheme to match your evolving style, a fresh coat of paint and thoughtful decorating can make your home look new again.


The key is to select a colour that resonates with you and complements your furnishings and decor. Once you’ve settled on a colour, give Hire A Hubby a call. Proper surface preparation, including cleaning, patching, and priming, is crucial for a flawless finish. Then, it’s all about the details – the trim, molding, and even accent walls can add depth and character to your home. Consider decorative finishes like textured paint or wallpaper for added visual interest.


With a fresh paint job and some strategic decorating touches, you can take your home from tired to vibrant, creating a welcoming atmosphere that reflects your personal style.







Add Some Shelves



Updating your home with new shelves is a simple yet effective way to breathe new life into your living spaces. Installing stylish, functional shelves can not only enhance your storage capabilities but also serve as decorative focal points, displaying your cherished items with pride.


Shelves will maximise the space you have available and can help make your home or office look neater and more organised. The attention to detail in these small changes can have a significant impact, making your home feel more organised, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing.










Changing the handles and knobs in various areas of your home, such as the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms, can work wonders in transforming the overall look and feel of your living spaces. It’s a subtle yet impactful update that breathes new life into cabinets, drawers, and doors. Sleek, modern handles can instantly modernise your kitchen, giving it a contemporary edge. In the bathroom, swapping out old, worn handles for elegant, decorative options can elevate the space to spa-like luxury. And in bedrooms, changing the handles on dressers and wardrobes can create a cohesive design theme and add a touch of personal style. It’s amazing how something as small as a handle can make such a significant difference, providing a fresh, updated aesthetic that can make your home feel entirely new and uniquely yours.
