Popular Remodeling Projects for 2019

The holidays are upon us, and our homes are filling up with guests, parties, gatherings.  Entertaining takes center stage for our attention, and we realize how much we need to update certain areas of our home.  Let’s run through the most popular remodeling projects homeowner’s are asking for in 2019!

1. Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and during your holiday gatherings you will inevitably fill up the kitchen with guests mingling around the island…unless you don’t have one!  So, top of the list for homeowner’s is to update and sometimes reconfigure their outdated kitchens.  Whether it’s swaping out cabinetry for new updated styles, sleek new appliances, quartz countertops, or an entirely new layout, simply determine your needs, wants, and budget. Then by next holiday season you will be the envy of all your guests!

2. Bathroom Remodel

Does your master bathroom or your guest bathroom need some updating?  When most homeowner’s get a new set of eyes on their bathrooms, they realize it’s definitely time to remodel!  And right now there are many options for remodeling your bathroom.  Freestanding soaker tubs, floating vanities, custom tiled showers, dual vanities with quartz or marble are all popular design options for remodeling the bathroom.  Determine your needs, wants, and budget, then by next holiday season your guests will be raving about your remodel!

3.  Basement Remodel

As your home fills up with guests during the holiday season, it seems like the perfect solution to finish the basement.   A guest bedroom and bath, a large media room, a fabulous gathering room with a bar or kitchen can really add that much needed space for entertaing and hosting friends and family.  Again, determine your needs, wants, and budget, and then by next holiday season you will be ready to wow your guests!

Home Renovation: Is your house ready to be the “after” photo?

Many people are deciding to stay in their current house and renovate instead of moving!  Moving costs, real estate fees, leaving the neighborhood you love are all great reasons to decide to renovate your existing home.

Check out out this before photo of an older run-down ranch home in a fabulous Smyrna, GA neighborhood.

In this project we completely renovated the interior and exterior of the home.  New roofing shingles, low-e double hung wood windows, board and batten siding, new front door.  The interior of the home was also transformed as we made the entire layout a new functional open concept floor plan. To see more interior photos check out the project page of our website.

The next project below had a larger budget, and that allowed for a second story addition to be constructed, as well as a 2-car garage.

In this project the newly constructed second floor added 2 new bedrooms, a bonus room, and a spacious bathroom.  The first floor was also re-configured to allow for a generous sized owner’s suite, a fabulous open kitchen-dining room, family room, and even a small office.

The exterior of the home features 3 craftsman style dormer with brackets and board and batten shutters.  The front porch adds character with the columns and copper roof.
