Through the years, our lives, circumstances, and needs change, and so does what we want to get out of our homes. If you bought your home a few years ago (or more), what your home needs to stay well-suited to your life has probably changed as well. You may have bought your home while your children were small, or maybe even before you started a family. If your children have grown and moved out, there may be extra bedrooms and play areas can be turned into a home office, exercise room, or hobby space.
Maybe now is the time for your home to grow up.
The Kitchen of Your Dreams
The way you use your kitchen is probably different than in the past. No longer the hub for organizing car pools and soccer schedules, it’s a place for relaxing with your morning coffee or for casual entertaining. Pick the style you love and remake the kitchen to suit your own taste: sleek and sophisticated, farmhouse cozy, or as efficient as a commercial kitchen for gourmet cooking.
An open floor plan will allow kitchen traffic to flow easily, make it easier for more than one person to cook at a time, and provide a flexible space for family and friends to gather. An island can include bar-height seating at stools or a convenient spot to serve food buffet-style. Add a butler’s pantry with extra cabinets, counter space, sink and a small refrigerator.
Is a Luxurious Master Bath in Your Future?
Master bath remodeling is one of the most popular home updates today. If you’ve put off treating yourself to a luxurious, relaxing bathroom, maybe the time has arrived.
A roomy, glass-walled shower with a bench seat is fast becoming the norm in bath design. Modern fixture choices offer high-tech performance and a spa experience without sacrificing water efficiency. Busy mornings are easier when you don’t have to wait for your turn in the bathroom. Remodeling to include a separate “water closet” toilet room and a vanity with two sinks lets you both get ready in half the time.
As a part of your master bath remodeling, consider radiant heating for the floor. A towel warming drawer or rack is a small extra that adds a great deal of pampering!
A Better Use for That Empty Room…
Unused rooms are a great opportunity for transformation into welcome new spaces. Would you love a home office and library where you can shut the door and not worry about your books and papers? Maybe you could have a real exercise room instead of a treadmill in the corner of the bedroom. You can finally have a roomy space with built-in shelves, cubbies, and a fitted closet for neat, organized storage of hobby supplies or sports equipment.
