Despite renovations, Indiana home retains antique charm
Despite renovations, Indiana home retains antique charm One of the biggest challenges facing owners of older homes is how to meld the original atmosphere of the home with any modern updates that many come along. The Indianapolis Star reports that one house in Meridian-Kessler, Indiana, successfully achieved that goal.
The house, which was built in 1938, was bought by Joe and Kelly Todd just six years ago, and the couple has not been shy about implementing their own changes. According to the news source, the Todds have renovated the kitchen to make it more family-friendly and refinished some of the home's original hardwood flooring. Despite the updates, the Todds still managed to retain some of its original aspects.
"The current laundry room/mother's nook was the home's original kitchen," Kelly told the news provider.
Homeowners who want to add a natural warmth to their home that exudes an antique charm may want to consider installing hardwood flooring. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the National Wood Flooring Association reports that the material is easy to keep clean as a regular sweeping can ensure that it's free of dirt and debris
