2022 storage

Expand Your Storage Horizons

Home storage space is vital because it can help you de-clutter your home, making it look and feel more spacious. It can also allow you to keep your belongings organized and easy to find. Having extra storage space can be helpful when you’re trying to clean your home or when you need to access something quickly.

One of the most efficient ways to expand your storage space is to convert under-the-stairs storage space into a bedroom. A bedroom is a great way to add square footage, and it also comes with the bonus of having nightstands or a dresser!

You can use this space for guests or when you need an extra place to sleep. You can also make a home office out of it, so you never have to work from your kitchen table again.

There is an abundance of ways to be creative with expanding your storage space; you just need to be a little more creative! One way is by adding built-in shelving made of reclaimed wood. Custom shelves can be erected in any room of your house or outside on the patio for extra convenience.

Paint The House

You may be dreaming of a white house with a red door, but when you sit down to list your home-improvement priorities, painting doesn’t rank in the top 10. The paint that’s on the walls has probably been there for years. Unless you’re selling your home, painting is worth doing, whether it’s latex or oil-based.

“Oil is more durable,” says Tom Silva of This Old House magazine, which advises homeowners to use either type. And if you do it yourself? The painting will save money.”

When sourcing professional interior painters, you have a few different options. You could ask for referrals from friends or family, or you could search online for reviews. However, the best way to find a good painter is to go through a painting company.

A good painting company will have a team of experienced and qualified painters who can help you with every step of the painting process. They will also be able to offer you a wide range of painting services, including painting, wallpaper removal, and drywall repair.

natural lighting

Let There Be (Natural) Light!

Natural light at home can help people feel happier, healthier, and more productive.

The benefits of natural light are not just for humans. It is also beneficial for all living things inside the house. If you can provide a home with as much natural light as possible, the occupants will enjoy its benefits every time they enter the house.

One effective way to maximize natural light in a home is by using skylights. In the early days, skylight installations were expensive and cumbersome. They often resulted in leaky roofs, faulty windows, and ugly structures above rooflines.

But today’s technologies have made it possible for people to enjoy all the benefits of a skylight without any drawbacks. Skylights are now available in various shapes and sizes, and they can be installed on just about any roof.

natural skylight remodeling

There are some reasons to consider a skylight installation:

  • Maximizing natural light: As mentioned earlier, one of the primary benefits of skylights is providing natural light into the house. Natural light has proven to make people feel happier, healthier, and more productive. A skylight will also maximize the lighting in your home because it presents an entire roof section of glass to let in sunlight.
  • Enhance curb appeal: The proper skylight installation can make your house look more attractive from the outside. It can also add some value to your home if you ever decide to sell it.
  • Reduce energy costs: Skylights can help reduce your energy costs in the summertime. They work by reducing the need for air conditioning, saving you money on your monthly utility bills.

open space remodeling

Open Your Door To An Open Floor

The open floor plan at home is a trend that has been around for the last few years. The open floor plan is a type of interior design and architecture in which studio spaces and large areas are arranged with little or no furniture, dividing walls, and sometimes even movable partitions.

One of the main benefits of an open floor plan is that it can make a room feel instantly larger. We tend to focus on the space we can see rather than what is hiding in the room’s corners. In addition, there are fewer barriers between you and what you want to do in your home’s living space.

In some cases, homeowners have opted to work with professionals when implementing an open floor plan, and this can be a great way to get the most out of the space.

If you’re not sure where to start or what to do, it might be worthwhile consulting with professional interior designers or even architects who will help you create a plan that’s perfect for your needs and lifestyle.

master bedroom

Welcome To The Master Suite

A master suite is a bedroom with a bathroom and a private sitting area. It is usually more extensive than other bedrooms and includes a more oversized closet. They are generally only found in the master bedroom.

These suites serve multiple purposes. First, they can serve as a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the household. Second, these rooms include better quality flooring than most other bedrooms because it is easier to clean in this room.

Third, homes with more than one floor might be located in the upper story to avoid noise and disruption caused by foot traffic. The goal for many homeowners is to make their master suite their sanctuary away from everything else in life.

When you have found a good builder, it is time to talk about your Master Suite. This is a meaningful conversation because it will affect the entire house. You might want to include a sitting room or office in your suite, as well as making sure you have enough room for all of your clothes and possessions.

Fulfill Your Basement’s Potential

There are many benefits of renovating your basement. Since they are usually unfinished, there are several ways to use these spaces. People often use their basement to store things they don’t need to see daily such as laundry and gardening tools.

The basement is an area of your house that can transform in many different ways. One way to do so is to create a home office or den in the space. Depending on the space you have to work with, you may also want to add a bar or pool table.

A home theater room can also be created by lining one wall with floor-to-ceiling black curtains and adding rows of theater seating.

Professional builders will start by conducting a basement inspection to assess the condition of the current structure and make recommendations for any necessary repairs.

The cost of renovations will vary based on what construction materials you require and which contractors you use, but it’s wise to get at least two quotes from reputable contractors before deciding which you would like to work with.

2022 attic trends

Renovate the Attic

Homes sometimes have a separate space for a second story, often referred to as an attic. The design of lofts varies significantly from one to the next. Some are perfect for storage and rarely accessed rooms, while others can be desirable living spaces that provide a more intimate atmosphere.

If you decide to transform your attic into a livable space, make sure you choose the appropriate flooring materials to suit your needs. In addition, you might want to include windows to allow for natural light.

Renovating your attic will create better airflow in the home, reducing humidity and improving indoor air quality. Moisture that eventually accumulates can lead to various structural issues like peeling paint, rotting wood frames, dry rot, mold buildup, and other health-related problems.

Furthermore, the insulation in attics is often low-density fiberglass or polystyrene sheets when air sealing technology is available at far greater efficiency.

sunroom remodeling

Here Comes The Sun(room)

A sunroom is a room that has windows on all of its walls. These windows allow for natural sunlight to come in and illuminate the room. Sunrooms are often used as an extension of the living space in a home and can be used as a place to relax or entertain guests.

Sunrooms naturally increase the light in a house and allow people to feel closer to nature. Sunrooms can be used as living space, relaxation space, entertainment space, and more!

People love sunrooms because they bring natural sunlight into an area that might already be dark and dreary. They also provide a great place to lounge or entertain guests who otherwise might not enjoy being indoors. Arguably the best feature of all is that they just make people feel happier and better about their surroundings!

It’s not hard for our professional builders to transform a sunroom. They often start by gathering the necessary materials and tools before starting the project.

Then, once they’ve finished installing and anchoring different seating pieces, they can install curtains or other decorative items. They should also make sure that the framing is watertight.

Installing a skylight is another excellent way to improve your sunroom. Not only will natural light flow in, but it can also enhance your home’s energy efficiency. If you’re searching for a few ways to enhance your sunroom, give us a call!

feature walls

Feature Walls And Why You Need One

Feature walls are the most critical wall in a house. The feature wall makes your home unique and unlike all the other places on the block. You can even have more than one feature wall in your house, depending on the size of your home.

Whatever you choose to showcase on your feature wall, make sure it reflects your personality and style.

If you are not sure which wall to make your feature wall, then we suggest you start by asking yourself these questions:

  • What is the most crucial wall in your house?
  • What do you like best about this room?
  • How can I make it stand out?

By answering these three simple questions, you will be able to choose the perfect wall for your feature wall.

So far, everything you have read about feature walls may seem like common sense, but there are some things that you probably did not think of yet. We will try to cover them all when we speak with you directly.

There is only one rule when designing your feature wall: There are no rules! The possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination. However, it should be noted that you should avoid a few things when choosing your feature wall.

Things To Avoid When Choosing A Feature Wall

  • Do not choose a wall that is in the direct path of sunlight. The sun will fade your paint or material over time.
  • Do not choose a wall that is near the kitchen or bathroom. Water and moisture can damage your feature wall over time.
  • Do not choose a wall in the main walkway of your house. You do not want people to be distracted by your feature wall and not pay attention to where they are going.
  • Do not choose a wall that is too small or too large for the room. A feature wall should have a good balance between being detailed and standing out.

Wood fences are also durable but can be susceptible to damage from weather conditions. Vinyl fences are the most affordable option and are resistant to weather damage.

When choosing a fencing option, be sure to consider the height of the fence and how much privacy you want. If you are looking for privacy, choose a wall that is at least six feet tall. If you are not concerned with privacy, a shorter fence may be more appropriate.

Landscaping and Lawns

There are many reasons why people love landscaping. Some people find it peaceful to be surrounded by plants and nature. Others enjoy the challenge of creating something beautiful. And many people appreciate the value that landscaping adds to their homes.

There are three main types of landscaping: natural, formal, and casual. Each landscaping style can be placed within these categories. As you might expect, birth is the easiest to care for and involves plants native to your area.

Formal landscaping is all about symmetry and order. For this, your plants must be trimmed regularly, and everything placed particular manner. Simple landscaping features a haphazard look and needs very little maintenance.

To be sure, there is no “perfect” type of landscaping style. You must decide what’s most important to you and then select a landscaping design that meets those specifications as closely as possible.

Our bathrooms were dated back to the 1980's and we needed them redone badly. Johnny did an excellent job meeting our needs and making sure we got everything we wanted in the bathrooms. In the end the bathrooms were exactly what we wanted.
