Four Steps of Completing the Final Touches of a Renovated Room

By: Connor Sullivan


After the San Antonio scaffolding company and the San Antonio Insulation company have completed their portion of a renovation, a homeowner must complete the final steps to making the job complete. All of the behind the walls work, including plumbing and electric, aren't the issue anymore. It's the trim, painting, flooring and the decorating that make a job feel finished and successful.
The trim in a room is the ornamental lumber that borders the ceiling, floor, windows and door jams in a room. Generally it is painted varying colors than the walls and provides a nice accent throughout the space. The cost varies due to the width of the wood, the amount being used and detail of putting it on the walls. Trim is an unnecessary expense, yet it is one of the greatest final touches a room can have. It makes a room feel custom and shows time was spent in making sure no detail was left undone.
After the trim is installed, it is time to pick out and put paint on the walls. The paint selection should be based on the colors of the flooring and the furniture that will go in in the room. The type of paint that is used should be selected on how the room will be used. For instance, if there will be a lot of children playing in the room, a homeowner should consider purchasing a semi-gloss finish. This type of paint allows for easy clean-up with a damp cloth. Other paints do not response as easily to being wiped off or having put on them. Also, depending on the color being applied, a homeowner must think about using a first coat primer in a similar color to the new wall color. This nets a richer more accurate shade for the end result.
The flooring in the room should be selected and installed after the painting has been completed. This prevents any spills and possible harm to the new floor covering. The actual type of material used on the floor depends on the homeowner's own style and the use of the room. For instance, they may select a thick plush carpet if the room is being used as a playroom for children. Additional selections could be tile, stamped concrete or even hardwood flooring. Regardless of the choice, the timing of the installation is critical to the process of completing the job. Once the floors are in, a homeowner can begin the final step in the completion of the room.
This last step is the actual decorating, furniture placement and putting up shades and curtains. Again, these selections are based on the personal taste of the homeowner and the use of the room. Some people will have a large sectional sofa and other accessories that compliment a more casual lifestyle. While other people may be using this new space for an office or den. Whatever the use, the furniture and personal accent pieces will bring style to the room and create an environment that is fresh and new for the family to enjoy.
