Community homes are central to every community all around the world. It is a place to stay for those who have no homes, a place to hold insightful seminars, and a place where everyone can gather around to support their local community. However, these homes are still subjected to depreciation. Paint might start to peel off, walls starting to crack, and the community home no longer looks like it used to be.
A proper renovation can set things back to order.
A Pallet Wall for Community Rooms
Community rooms are one of the essential areas in every community home. It’s a prominent place where people from all over the community come around and settle. It’s also a place where seminars and team-building exercises are held.
Being one of the most used rooms in a community home makes it vulnerable to depreciation. One of the first things that might have taken a hit from depreciation is the walls. However, it’s not ideal for taking an entire wall down. This can lead to many electrical problems. What you can do is add another aesthetic layer to the wall. This can take away the problem of painting the walls every year. Additionally, this can also be a cheap project that everyone in the community can take part in.
Building a pallet wall is cheap and straightforward. They are also aesthetically pleasing. They add a modern look to the room, making it look sophisticated. The best part is that pallets are cheap and can be found everywhere. You can find it in your local supermarket, retailers, or even bars if they have any pallets they don’t use. This is an excellent way to get the community involved.
After getting the necessary materials, it’s time to get into the building. Depending on the size of the wall, you might have to cut some pallets down to size. It’s suggested to paint the wall dark first before installation as there might be gaps here and there. The next process is to sand down and install the pallet into the wall. It’s a simple process that shouldn’t take too much time if you have others to help you.
There you have it! A pallet wall for your community room.
Using Granite for Community Kitchen
Community kitchens are a great place for people to cook and share their recipes. However, this can lead to a lot of wear and tear as more people use the kitchen every day. One way to remove the ongoing cost of maintenance is to use granite on your next renovation.
Granite is a durable material that, when installed properly, can last a lifetime. A granite stone countertop can practically outlast any other material out there. It is resistant to heat, does not stain, and its colors do not easily fade. It’s the best material to use for any kitchen, especially one that is used every day.
Investing in granite for your community kitchen can make a difference in how much you have to spend on maintenance. The prices for this material have dropped as well, making it cheaper than ever. The installation of granite countertops isn’t too hard either if you have the manpower for it. It can be done over the weekend and ready for use again the next week.
Eco-friendly Community Garden
This renovation is eco-friendly. It’s also fun to do with everyone in the community. The main idea of creating a self-sustaining community garden is to reuse and recycle used plastics and other non-biodegradable materials. This way, your community’s carbon footprint will be reduced while giving the plants in your garden room and a place to grow.
The first thing you should do to build your eco-friendly community garden is to gather as much used plastic you have in your community.
You can also inform your local garbage collector of this so they can gather this material for you. Next is to use these plastic containers as a pot for your new plants. It’s as simple as cutting the top of any plastic bottle, placing some soil on it, and planting the seed inside. You have to repeat this process for the rest of the seeds to build your eco-friendly community garden.
Renovating your community home can be a daunting task. Thankfully, you have the entire community to back you up. The best thing about these renovations is that they are cheap and can quickly be done over the weekend.
