3 renovations that turn a house into a home

January 22, 2019
  • If you think your home needs remodeling, a great place to start is in the kitchen. The kitchen is generally the most used room in the home.
  • Bathroom renovations and bathroom additions are a worth while home improvement. Just like a kitchen renovation, bathroom renovations can improve the resale value of your home
  • Basement remodels can nearly double your home’s functional living space. You can upgrade your retro basement to a comfortable family room with spare bedrooms or get creative with a new basement design for your unfinished basement.

Remodelling your bathroom?

September 26, 2018

A bathroom remodel is one of the most rewarding projects you can undertake as a homeowner. When well-planned, it can improve your home’s aesthetics while adding convenience. And it usually offers a significant return when it comes time to sell. Remodels don’t have to break the bank, either. With just a few hundred dollars and a little elbow grease, you can make a remarkable impact to your space — both in value and style. Not sure where to start on your bathroom remodel? Here are some of today’s hottest trends:
Bold Metal Fixtures
Budget: Low
Forget those old handles, faucets and drawer pulls that blend in. Today’s designers are making these small details stand out. Think bold brass, matte black or even rose gold.
Modern Wallpaper
Budget: Low
Wallpaper is back — especially intricately illustrated designs and bright, bold patterns. It’s low-cost, easy to DIY and makes an immediate impression.
Smart Tech
Budget: Low to Medium
Savvy consumers are using smart tech in their powder rooms for a touch of luxury. Some of the most popular features include autofilling bathtubs, voice-activated mirrors and sound systems, and LED-enhanced showerheads.
Exposed Concrete
Budget: Medium
Concrete floors, walls, counters and sinks are popular with celebrity designers and new homebuilders. They offer a minimalistic, contemporary look that goes with any color palette.
Freestanding Tubs
Budget: Medium to High
Freestanding tubs may date to the Roman Empire, but they’re making a stylish comeback. Tuck one into a corner or under a skylight to create a beautiful focal point to relax in.
