If you’re like most homeowners, you have a home wish list of changes that you’d love to make so your home can be just right. One of the top items on lists is usually the problem that you feel there is too little space. You find yourself wanting a better layout, more room to store everything or more kitchen counter space. Don’t make do with your too-tight home! One of these 6 remodeling ideas just might make your home “just right” while adding value to it at the same time.
1. Remove Walls to Improve Flow
One high-impact change that will make a big difference in how your home feels is eliminating an old-fashioned layout of small rooms that limit the way you use your home. We can show you the best way to remove and reposition non-load-bearing walls to create a more open floor plan and improve the flow in your home, creating a larger, more versatile area for your family and friends to gather.
2. Give Everyone Some Elbow Room
If older parents or adult children moving into your home have made it a bit too “cozy” consider a home addition. We can design and build a suite with a separate entrance and maybe its own kitchenette and bath for added privacy. Even transforming a seldom-used room into a comfortable living area can create just enough breathing room to make a big difference.
3. Create Your Family’s New Favorite Place to Be
No more sitting alone at your desk! Twenty-first century electronics have changed how we use our time and our family rooms. We can work with you to redesign the room and open up your floor plan to create the perfect spot for your whole family to enjoy a multimedia experience together.
4. Make Your Kitchen “Top Chef” Territory
If you find inspiration in one (or more) of the many cooking shows on TV, you should consider an updated gourmet kitchen for yourself. A new layout can improve flow and function, make your kitchen feel more inviting and maybe even make cooking fun again!
5. Add a Peaceful Retreat
Perhaps your home wish list has always included a quiet, personal space to call your own. Maybe a window-walled sunroom where you can read, or a beautiful master suite and bath where you can relax while sinking into a deep soaking tub. How nice it would feel to enjoy the relaxation you’ve earned! We can make it happen.
6. Put Everything in its Place
We often hear from homeowners that excessive clutter makes them feel their home is simply bursting at the seams. If this is one of the items on your list, we can offer innovative and well-designed solutions such as walk-in closets and pantries, finished storage spaces with custom cabinetry, designated study areas, a home office, or built-in storage. We can re-work the space you have so it’s organized like never before.
