You and your family might have enjoyed living in your Cleveland home for many years. Your family is growing. Your kids are growing and in need of more space. Is it time to consider moving to a new house?
Nope. Like many families, you know that moving to another house is not practical nor easy. You have to consider a ton of things—mostly mortgage though. And that alone will be enough to make you stop and think that it’s not the best option.
Why not go for a traditional Cleveland remodeling project? You can, for example, make the kids’ room bigger by knocking down the walls and extending it to the adjacent idle storage room. You may also want to do some major changes to the kitchen.
So you start identifying the areas in the house which need remodeling. With a growing family like yours, you may want to apply some changes in the kitchen, bathroom, kids’ room, and living room.
Below are some remodeling ideas for the three major areas in your house you can start with.
If you are remodeling your kitchen, you must start by identifying the needs vs the wants. By doing this, you will not end up spending money and time for a breakfast nook that no one likes to have breakfast in.
And because your kids are growing, their space needs are subsequently growing. You might need a bigger space for the dining table. If one of the kids shows an interest in cooking, you might want to extend the cooking area.
There are two important things you have to include in your remodeling checklist for the kitchen: budget and logistics. Early on in the planning stage, you have to determine how much you are willing to spend on the changes you need (not want) in the kitchen. You must also look for a reliable and trusted contractor that offers a reasonable contract price for Cleveland remodeling service.
A newly renovated kitchen will add to the resale value of your house if you decide to have it listed in the future. Hence, it will be worth your investment.
Maybe the changes needed are more for the kids’ bathroom than yours in the master bedroom. For this project, you must take into consideration the personal style and needs of your kids.
If you have a small bathroom, you may want to consider using a hidden-tank toilet, to save up on floor space.
You may want to choose a neutral color for the bathroom floor and wall tiles if you have boys and girls in the house, who share the bathroom. Use textured floor tiles to prevent the smaller kids from slipping when the floor gets wet.
If there is a bathtub that is not often used, it might be a good idea to remove and make the shower space bigger.
If humidity is an issue in the bathroom, add a window in the shower. Natural ventilation will be effective in keeping the bathroom free from mold and mildew.
Living Room Remodels
The part of the house where you gather together for a movie or entertainment is the living room. Over the years, it has witnessed a lot of activities your family shared in this area. A new look for the living room is just as important as the new look for the kitchen or bathroom.
One way to make your living room look bigger and “newer” is by knocking down some walls to add glass floor-to-ceiling glass doors.
How about a change in the color palette? Choose neutral colors as they are easy to accentuate with furniture pieces and decorations. But if your living room area isn’t that big and you want to make it look more spacious, use white color for the ceiling.
Depending on your personal style and taste, you can replace the old furniture pieces with new ones to match the overall theme or motif of the living room.
Keep Track of What You Need
Before you actually start the renovation, don’t lose sight of the reasons why you are making the changes in your house. By keeping them in mind, you keep yourself on track with what’s necessary and what changes can wait. This way, you don’t run the risk of spending beyond your budget and you stay along the course of what you and your family need.
Remember, the changes you are making will make your house more comfortable and functional for the entire household.
And when all is said and done, it’s high time for you to contact your Cleveland remodeling service provider. Tell them what your completed checklist contains, and get a quote. The key to getting the most out of a remodelling project is to get it done as soon as you can. The earlier you can use and experience the renovations, the more it becomes worth the price.
