Bathrooms
: Out of all the home remodeling projects, few can provide the benefits of a bathroom remodel.  Remodeling the bathroom is a great way to add real value to your home.  On the plus side of that, it will increase the enjoyment level for yourself and your family.  Your
bathroom should be comfortable, attractive and functional.  After all, a bathroom is a comfort zone inside your home.

Kitchens: The kitchen is probably one of the most important and complicated roos
to design in your home.  Few rooms see so much activity and also challenge designers with such an array of practical, technological, and esthetic considerations.  A new kitchen is an excellent investment.  Whether it is a remodel or a completely new kitchen in  your home, we offer kitchen design service if needed.  Our goal is for your to have the kitchen of your dreams.
Remodeling?  Where Should You Start??

    Remodeling your home can be a great way to spruce up you house and your attitude!  A remodeling project can be as simple as changing your color scheme or as complex as a complete home makeover.  The choice is yours.
    Whether you want to modernize or go retro, whether your project is small or large, remodeling can be a fun and exciting way to add a little excitement.
    There are several place to begin to think about and plan a remodeling project.  Teh first way to begin is to think about what you would like to change or what you need to change about your house.  Make a list of the things you need to do.  Then make a list of the things you want to do.  This will help you prioritize the projects.  A second way to begin is to consider what renovations or remodeling would increase the value of your house.  You can get ideas by viewing some new homes or talking with remodelers to make a recommendations and give advice and cost estimates.

    The top five reasons given by people who remodel their homes are:

   • Add space: remodeling to add or to reallocate space can mean knocking out a wall, building a wall, adding a room, extending a room, or adding a second floor.  If your family is growing you may need additional bedrooms or a play room or another bathroom

   • Upgrade or modernize: remodeling to upgrade or modernize can take a variety of directions.  First, you might want to lighten or brighten the house by adding windows or glass doors or skylights.  New house tend to have more windows and higher ceiling.  These are good upgrades to make.  They will generally increase the value of your home.  Upgrading kitchens and bathrooms usually brings a good return on the investment.

   • Energy efficiency: renovations that improve energy efficiency tend to pay off both in the short run and in the long run.  Some of these improvements are relatively affordable, such as changing windows or adding insulation.

   • Functional: making the home more functional for the elderly or for persons with disabilities can involve relatively minor or removable changes or it can involve permanent changes.  For example, if you decide to install a ramp, what effect will a permanent concrete ramp have on the resale value fo the house?  in general terms, removable accessibility and safety features will protect the resale value of the home.

    • Value: renovations aimed at increasing the value of your home can also make life more comfortable immediately.  Teh best advice in this case is to focus on things that clearly make the house more desirable.  Changing paint to neutral colors is generally safe.  Changing from carpet to hardwood floors may make a difference.  Lighting and brightening should pay off, as should de-cluttering and attending to landscaping.

It is always possible that you will make changes or improvements now that will come to be considered liabilities to later, so be sure you want to live with the changes you make.  Unless you plan to sell your house immediately, you might want to concentrate on the kind of remodeling that will make you happier and more comfortable.

Renovations are messing the short run, but making the changes you want in a home or your lifestyle demands, can be fun and energizing.  If you have the itch to remodel or update your home give us a call today and we will be glad to meet with you and help make your visions come true.
