New Year’s Resolutions often make us realize things we would like to do and new directions in which we would like to take our lives. But most of us lose focus in so many areas that we tend to make the same resolutions year after year. This year, instead of resolving to lose weight or eat a healthier diet, consider updating or remodeling an area of your home instead. You can, after all, get fit while planning, organizing, and enjoying your newly remodeled home.
Organize the Clutter
We’re all human. We’re all homeowners. We understand what it means to have a family and to have important memorabilia from important parts of your life. All of that stuff really means something and helps you remember the good times when things get rough. Build specific storage areas for all of your collectables and memories. Turn your finished basement into an incredible vault for memories to be stored safely away from little fingers or other damage. Specific storage areas will help preserve your precious memories while freeing up space and removing the clutter from other areas of your home.
Remodel the Kitchen
Create a kitchen space that is more conducive to the type of cooking you do. How many times have you been in the middle of cooking a big dinner and wished the cabinetry was laid out differently or you had a kitchen island or more countertop space? Work with us to design and build the perfect kitchen for 2016 and beyond. Add appliances that will streamline your cooking process and make everything look amazing. Consider a new backsplash that acts as an extension of your new countertops.
Open the Floor Plan
This is much easier than most homeowners realize. The ability to open the living room, dining room, and kitchen into one very large space opens up so many entertainment possibilities. All it generally takes to remove a few walls is to determine which walls are load-bearing, and ensure that the structural support is not compromised. We can do this by reinforcing walls to create some pretty amazing conversation pieces.
Paint the Interior
Paint is one of the most noticeable things you can change throughout the interior of your home. Choose one room per month to repaint so you don’t feel overwhelmed with the scope of the project. Take the time to plan each room individually and then make sure they will flow well together. Choose a focal point in each room before you get started so you are more prepared when the time comes to choose colors.
