The benefits of Open Concept Remodeling

 

Kitchen design

After walls were removed

All of us love the outdoors. Well, most people anyway. There is a free feel you get when outside that you do not realize you are lacking until you are actually outside your house or office. Enter the concept of open design remodeling. Just like the name suggests, you get a free and open space that is so beautifully designed you will not miss the cluster and cloister of walls and sometimes unnecessary partitions. If you are looking to do a bit of remodeling you may want to consider redesigning to an open model. You will love it. Here is why. The open concept remodeling is a chance to have a beautiful expanse of your own aside from the outdoors. The free flow of air and (if redesigning is done right) the perfect combination of décor from one section of the room to the other is a feast for the eye. For the homeowner who needs to create an illusion of space in a room that is not so big, open concept redesigning makes tiny spaces seem gigantic. This style essentially combines the three most important rooms in any home; the living room area, the kitchen area and the dining area. All these three use one type of flooring with only expert décor separating the various sections beautifully.

Removing walls has several benefits.  Open concept remodeling allows a family living in the home to socialize virtually all the time and keep an eye on each other. This is very important especially in a home with kids. Being able to speak to someone in the living room right across from the kitchen is very simply put, amazing.

Why Your Kitchen and Bath deserve a Professional and Certified Remodeler

The kitchen and bathroom areas are two of the most special areas in any home. You prepare all your food and refreshments in your kitchen and this is usually a fun and exciting time for anyone who loves to cook. The bathroom on the other hand is a place of relaxation, which needs to be designed just right for the perfect satisfaction. It is precisely for these reasons that you must always get a certified remodeler whenever these two important rooms in your home require a makeover. Remodeling is not just about changing color or adding a few more cabinets. A lot more goes into it than this and a certified remodeler would know exactly what. Below are a few reasons why.
Any certified remodeler always does a start to finish job and this simply means that right from the beginning of the project, they will be involved in every single detail right through to the end. They provide all the recommendations they feel you need no matter what your preferences and tastes are because it is their mandate to do so. After this you can go ahead and make your informed choice.
One clear area that many amateur remodelers do not pay attention to is that of noise and noise reduction techniques. A certified remodeler helps you to look at alternative ways of positioning your freezer and refrigerator, which can be very noisy if wrongly placed. The hum they produce can emit an intolerable din if not taken care of. Kitchen counter tops need to be sturdy and not just there for aesthetics. A certified remodeler will make sure your counter tops are engineered just right.
A certified remodeler thinks of all the requirements and more importantly costs, upfront. They do not make up new agendas on the list as they go along making the client incur costs he or she was not prepared for. They carry out proper evaluations and come up with a single budget that caters for everything. Armed with years of experience and extensive training, a certified remodeler adds not just design to your kitchen and bath but also the value you can accrue from it.

Top 3 bathroom design ideas

When taking on the challenge of a bathroom remodel you first need to determine how you want your bathroom to look. In terms of Bathroom design, you may go with a regular design or with a luxurious design, with the former being a cut above your standard bathroom design. With that in mind, below we’re going to take a closer look at some of the options you may go with in this regard.

Contemporary

If you’ll go with a contemporary bathroom design, then you should focus on selecting elements that are mostly constructed of industrial materials and are also sleek. Go for glass and stainless steel vanities with low profile vessel sinks or built in sinks in either stainless steel or glass. For the flooring, you may want to go for stone flooring like concrete or slate. Next is the decoration, for which you should go with a single bold color, like bright yellow or red and then add a few accents of the chosen color, such as a large piece of wall art or a floor rug.

Traditional

If a traditional and luxurious bathroom is what you want to create, then go for pieces that reflect both luxury and comfort. Furniture style vanities that feature rich food finishes, like mahogany, oak or cherry are recommended. As for the flooring, you should get hardwood flooring in the same tones. For vanity tops and flooring, both granite and marble will work just fine, but you should stay away from dark gray or black tones, because they will interrupt your traditional finish. In terms of the color of your walls, a soft color will do, like beige.

Country

Lastly, if you want a country bathroom remodeling, then you should go for upscale country elements, like claw foot or copper pedestal tubs. The hardwood flooring should be chosen in lighter tones, like sky blue, sage green or soft pink. Lastly, you can complete the bathroom by adding accents.

 

As you can see, these are the main tips you should consider depending on the type of bathroom remodeling you want to go with. Good luck with your project!

Tub or Shower

Tub or Shower The Great Debate

When it comes to needing a bathtub in you home their are a couple different schools of thought.  Traditional real estate agents will confirm that you need to have at least one bathtub to protect resale value.  However the tide is rapidly turning to the opinion that a well done display shower can have many advantages.  A person must first decide if they ever do use a bathtub or if they use it enough to justify the space a bathtub takes up in a bathroom.

The homes location will have an affect on which bathroom layout makes sense for you.  A neighborhood with a lot of young families might require a bathtub for small children.  On the other hand, in  a more developed community with an older population having a bathtub may be a liability.

Finally when making the decision to keep or eliminate a bathtub many people overlook the value of enjoyment.  If you plan on living in a home for five or more years the time spent enjoying a tub or shower will likely out way any perceived changes in home resale value.  Bottom line is that there are no blanket rules of thumb.

As I contractor I most often hear we would prefer a shower but we want to protect our resale value.  If so many people are saying where is there added resale value in keeping a bathtub?
