When you think of renovations, your mind probably starts dreaming about kitchens and bathrooms, beautiful outdoor spaces and large family rooms in the basement. You are not alone. Those are some of the most common areas of homes that clients want to remodel when they work with Eakman Construction. But there are many other areas of your home that could use a pick-me-up that will not only add value to your bottom line, but also make your home more enjoyable now, should you choose not to sell it for a while, or ever. Completing the look and feel of your home is a great way to make you feel more at ease at home and make your home more welcoming to others and your family.
Besides the kitchen and bathroom in a home, the hallways get some of the most foot traffic. It’s a thoroughfare for your family to get to and from their bedrooms, living rooms, family rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and to the great outdoors. This kind of traffic leaves a lot of wear and tear that gets ignored because, well frankly, it’s a hallway. What could you really do with it to make it more appealing? Let the expert designers and planners at Eakman Construction put together a plan for your home that includes expanding and articulating your hallways. It’s a simple project that could make all the difference. If you are tired of passing each other in the hallways, want to make it look more open and spacious or you need storage or want to remove storage, remodeling your hallway can give you that result.
Kids’ bedrooms are usually just square and boring, but there are lots of ways you can add interest and value to your home by renovating your child’s bedroom. Adding dormers to the roof of an upstairs room, adding beams or other architectural elements to the ceiling, adding accent lighting and new flooring, combing rooms or separating them – all of that creates new and open space to bring your child’s room to life. They won’t be kids forever, as much as we’d like for them to stay little, so it’s best to start planning for their teenager years and even early adult years if they want to stick around for college or work for a while. Plus, if you ever plan to sell and downsize or move to another state, having some interest in the auxiliary bedrooms will provide more return on your investment and make them appropriate for guests of all ages.
Make a grand first impression by adding a porch or entryway to your home. If your shoes are stacked in piles and coats are hanging everywhere but on the hooks, it might be time to expand or redesign your entryway. You can have an entryway like the ones you see on television design shows: it just takes some remodeling and renovating to make that happen. Add a spectacular door with gorgeous hardware and choose glass that allows natural light to beam into the entryway, some new flooring, a vaulted ceiling and you’ve got an entryway worth talking about.
