Why is it important to consider quality finishes for your apartment?
Construction materials play an important role in the aesthetics of buildings, but above all, they define the quality of the home. Among the advantages of new housing is the possibility of using high-quality, sustainable, and energy-efficient materials and techniques. By prioritizing quality and efficiency, the durability of the materials and finishes increases significantly.
Importance of quality finishes
Some people think that practicality is more important than aesthetics, while others consider that the latter is a reflection of a functional property. However, these ideas are wrong. Below, we show you why you should work with both elements to provide the best experience to the inhabitants of a space.
They give a good look to the facade of the property.
When a person is looking for an apartment, the first thing that catches their attention is the façade. After all, this is the public identity of a building and reflects the lifestyle behind the windows.
This is one of the reasons why you should take care of the exterior appearance of your home. In this way, you will show that the stay in that place is pleasant, which will be of great help if you plan to invest in real estate for rent.
Reduce visual noise
The basic facilities of a house, such as hydraulic, electrical, and drainage, play a fundamental role in the functionality of a property, but should not be noticeable to the naked eye. This is where the importance of quality finishes lies, as they allow pipes and cables to be covered without compromising functionality or aesthetics.
Good exterior insulation prepares the facade to resist inclement weather and reduces heat loss through walls and windows. It is the main measure for energy savings in homes.
A good thermal insulation layer minimizes heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer and also protects pipes. This will reduce heating and air conditioning consumption. According to building materials experts, heating and hot water account for almost 66% of total household energy consumption. Therefore, insulation is essential when it comes to reducing our consumption and the negative impact on the environment.
The importance of windows
Energy losses can also occur through windows. A good measure to avoid this is to install double-glazed windows with thermal breaks.
Double-glazed windows consist of two or more panes of glass separated by an air chamber. Not only do they offer greater thermal insulation, but they also provide better protection against noise from the outside.
The thermal bridge break consists of preventing the inner and outer face of the window from touching, in order to avoid the transfer of energy between them. This is achieved by inserting a non-conductive material, which greatly reduces heat loss.
Of course, all these measures result in long-term cost savings. By making more efficient use of air conditioning, we will spend less on heating and air conditioning, thus reducing the electricity bill.
How to choose quality finishes for your apartment?
When choosing finishes for an apartment, many people pay more attention to style than to practicality. Both are equally important. Therefore, you should always take into account the following factors:
If you have a chaotic home, with children and pets, you can opt for more durable finishes that can withstand wear and tear. Think about the little accidents that can happen; it is inevitable that your children will spill water or your cat will scratch the furniture.
For most families, the safety of an apartment’s interior finishes is a priority. For example, if you live with a person with mobility issues, you may want to choose a floor that is slip-resistant and soft to walk on. On the other hand, if you have small children, it is best to install cordless blinds and security grilles or screens.
With the help of an interior designer, you will be able to choose finishes that are pleasing and fit well with the overall aesthetics of your property. Remember that the colors, texture, patterns, and different styles you encounter will influence this decision, so keep an open mind.
