Is An Open Floor Plan Right For Me?
Open floor plans are a popular residential architectural trend, but does having one suit your tastes and preferences? Read on to discover the advantages and disadvantages of this design trend.
If you’re looking for tips on repurposing a room or otherwise enhancing your home, look no further! Small renovations can make a big impact as they are an efficient way to upgrade your house without investing in a complete overhaul. Since homeowners are spending more time at home than usual due to the COVID-19 crisis, our homes have become our new offices, vacation spots, and most-frequented restaurants. Let’s work together to make your multi-functional space fit your new needs. We’ve compiled three ideas to inspire you to freshen up your home, cleverly repurpose the space you have, and increase your home’s value.
Add a laundry room.
There is no such thing as too much storage. Laundry rooms allow homeowners to create a dedicated space for cleaning supplies, clothes, linens, and towels, leaving them with more space in their kitchens and linen closets for other essentials. Built-in cabinets above your washer and dryer allow for easy access to supplies and make laundry day less of a chore. Plus looking at finished cabinets instead of cluttered shelves or items strewn on top of appliances is refreshing and may even decrease your stress levels!
Revamp your home office.
Many of us have found ourselves working from home and after a certain amount of time, the couch becomes uncomfortable to work from. Using spare rooms as home offices allow for greater privacy during Zoom calls and create a physical division between your work and your home. For those lucky enough to already have a home office, consider brightening it up with more natural light from a skylight or adding in built-in desks and shelving for extra storage. Adding built-in features and updated flooring personalizes your space and can completely change the look and feel of your home office.
Transform your master suite.
Since you’re probably spending more time in your home than normal these days, it may be time to convert your bedroom into a master suite with upgraded bathrooms, expanded closets, or other master bedroom renovations! Do you have a sitting area and a fireplace in your master suite? Why not plan one and add it? Maybe it’s time to add those walk-in closets you’ve always dreamed of having! Updating your shower, adding a jacuzzi bathtub, or building a fireplace in your master suite can take it to the next level while increasing your home’s value.
