Whether you’re looking to renovate your home for improved security, functionality or style, you can do it all with the help of a licensed contractor. There are many ways you can make your home a place where you love to be. Not everyone can say that they truly enjoy dwelling in their homes – to some it’s just a place to eat and sleep. Below, you will find ideas for remodeling your kitchen, bathroom and other areas of the home.
Design Ideas for Kitchen Remodeling
There are a lot of new trends popping up for kitchen remodeling projects. Some you may find worth trying, other’s not so much. One design idea that hasn’t gone out of style yet is black and white kitchens. This typically consists of a contrast between the countertops and the cabinets. In most cases, the cabinets are white and the countertops are dark, but this could easily be reversed.
Kitchen islands are becoming a main part of kitchen remodeling projects. If you’re looking for a way to the make your kitchen more functional for your frequent cooking, then you will love the concept of a kitchen island. If you have a kitchen space large enough, you can fit a nice long kitchen island or maybe two shorter ones that will provide you with efficient space for food preparation.
Contemporary kitchens are something that’s becoming commonplace in people’s homes. The idea of using designs that are modern and simpler. The idea here is less is more, and the types of colors and materials being used include dark wood, engineered stones and stainless steel. The combination of these things can be implemented in a way that suits your own taste.
Appliances aren’t always the main design of kitchens. We see more homeowners hiding away their appliances behind wood panels and faux veneers, so that less kitchen space is being used, when the appliances aren’t needed. However, those that are sticking around, such as the kitchen sink, are becoming more chic. For instance, the trend of apron-front farmhouse style sinks is very popular right now. These deep-set sinks can add emphasis to your kitchen is a good way. They come in different colors, including copper, white and steel, to name a few.
What’s also becoming quite popular with kitchen remodels is the outdoor kitchen. More people are bringing their kitchen appliances outside, along with furniture to enjoy meals and the company of friends and family.
Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for Your Home
The bathroom is increasingly becoming a place where homeowners can enjoy a spa-like experience. With appliances like hot tubs, frameless showers with built-in seats in the walls and double showerheads, it’s easy to imagine how. With the right eye, you can create a wet room or bathroom that is sensational. The line of fixture models that are coming out from different brands provides homeowners with a wide array of choices.
Water fixtures that have curves is one type of style that is becoming very popular in homes across the U.S. These can make spaces look larger, since they take up less space. You’ll find toilets, sinks and bathtubs with this style, allowing you to have a bathroom design that is complete with curvaceous fixtures.
If you’re interested in creating wet room in your home, consider using a frameless shower, which will make the space appear larger and make the bathroom experience more spa-like. You can also implement a freestanding bathtub if you’re keen of the idea of getting rid of your tub. If you want to make your bathroom look more like a spa, you can add décor like a chaise, lamps and even side tables, if space allows.
Speaking of freestanding bathtubs, you may be interested in the old fashioned claw foot standalone bathtub. This is ideal with modern and old fashioned bathroom décor. Modernized décor is a big trend we’re seeing in many bathroom designs.
Transforming a loft space into en suite wet room could also be a great idea if you’re looking to add a bathroom to your home, but don’t have sufficient space elsewhere.
Creating Space for Entertainment and Fun
You can’t remodel a home without thinking about entertainment and fun. You can either make space or recreate space you already have. If you don’t have enough indoor space to work with, then you should consider making a haven outdoors. Your backyard could be the ideal place to hang out, given that there is a place to go. If you don’t mind weather elements or being restricted during certain times of the year, then you could go with a back patio. This can easily be done up with beautiful patio furniture. You could also add an above-ground or in-ground swimming pool.
Another option for those looking for an indoor haven could go with a sunroom. This can be added on just as easily as a back patio. Instead, this will have walls and windows, so that you can enjoy the room any time of the year. Decorating this should be easy, and possibly even fun. Imagine what you’d use it for — if you have children, you can use a part of the room as a playroom.
On the other hand, if you have space inside of your home, you can transform a room, attic or basement into a completely new room. If you want an office, movie room or just an extra living room, this is the way to make it a reality. A room add-on can also be achieved if you have exterior space that would allow for it.
