A home remodel doesn’t have to be scary. All you need is a dream and a plan. Maximize the space you have by making a few easy changes that can enhance the way you feel about the home you occupy.
Add Personal Flair
You want your home to reflect who you are and what you like. This is an opportunity to play with sophisticated hues and styles. For instance, pair your stark white kitchen cabinets with a center island that’s stained with a smoky tone. Bring it all together beautifully with a leathered, white quartz countertop.
Think about the way you want your appliances to look and feel. Do you prefer stainless steel or black? Kitchen Aid or Cuisinart? What features are important to you; a full sized wine refrigerator, or a mini-one built into the island? When you incorporate designs that are not only thoughtful, but serve a functional purpose, it makes a home remodel that much better.
Consider Universal Design
Universal design is the process of design that makes life easier for all people, regardless of capability or age. It’s empowering and classic, with a timeless look and an endless appeal. When remodeling, these little changes can mean a lot.
Consider installing motion lighting in areas such as the bathroom or kitchen to make it easier to find your way around at night.
In the bathroom, a shower with no curb is best for easy entry and exit.
When tiling the kitchen or bathroom, use smaller tiles that have less surface for slipping. Non-slippery cork flooring adds a little cushion and warmth underfoot.
If you have the space in the kitchen, bring a few cabinets down and place them directly on top of the counter for easier access.
Add automation control that turns on lights throughout the house from one master control.
Create A Floor Plan
Whether you have five kids, zero kids, or one on the way, the floor plan is essential to a good home remodel. Think about how much you entertain. Do you prefer an open plan where everyone from the kitchen to the living room is within eye sight? Do you prefer more privacy in the kitchen while cooking? Change can be as simple as widening a doorway between the kitchen and the living room, or as complex as relocating an entire staircase.
Maximize The Master Bathroom
This is your personal retreat, so make it exactly how you want it. Add a large double vanity, install a freestanding tub, and create a spa-like shower. Optimize space by utilizing each drawer in the vanity for a specific purpose. Outfit your master bathroom with custom cosmetic organizers, electrical outlets, and styling station inserts so that everything has its place.
