Do you want to expand the size of your home?

Expanding the size of your home is an obvious choice when you don’t want to leave your current home, neighborhood, and the neighbors you’ve grown to love like family.

If you have children who have outgrown their bedrooms or you have aging parents coming to live with you, expanding the size of your home will enable you to stay in the home you love.

Your options include adding an addition to your home, building a detached addition separate from your home, adding a second floor, converting the attic, basement, or garage.

Do you want to create a new layout to make your home more functional?

Creating a new layout for your existing space is a great way to make your home more functional. As your family grows and evolves, or your kids have moved out and into homes of their own, suddenly the current layout of your home no longer works for you.

You don’t have to spend the money adding more square footage, you simply redesign the space you already have. You could add a few bedrooms by remodeling your basement if your kids need rooms of their own. You could knock down a few walls to make one big room that would better suit your new needs. Or, you could convert a bedroom into a home office or whatever else you need a new usable space for. Another great reason to remodel is to make your kitchen and bathrooms bigger, better, and easier to use.

Do you want to age in place in your current home?

With the technology available today, aging in place versus going into a nursing home is completely doable. You can simply remodel your current home to include accessibility features, non-slip flooring, widened doorways, larger curbless showers, a kitchen redesign, and smart home features with voice assistants that can do almost anything for you such as automatically turn on your lights, appliances, thermostat, and can even order your groceries and have them delivered. Some of them also come with medical alert features as well. That’s just a shortlist of what a smart home voice assistant can do for you.

Do you want to replace outdated design features in your home?

Having your home remodeled is the perfect solution for turning an outdated design into an updated modern paradise. Remodeling can turn your old kitchen into a more functional space with all the latest technology and features such as state-of-the-art smart appliances, new lighting, new cabinets with soft-close doors and drawers, new countertops, and a redesign that makes cooking, eating, and entertaining more enjoyable. You could also have a fireplace installed, add some custom built-ins, or add a media center in your living room. The sky’s the limit.

Do you want to make your home safer and more energy-efficient?

Another great reason to consider a whole-home remodel is to make your home safer and more energy-efficient. Remodeling using new technology and better quality materials can make your home more energy-efficient not to mention the Energy Star rated appliances. Additionally, you could also have all the windows replaced with double glazed windows or impact windows to help prevent your home from being broken into, as well as making it more energy-efficient.

You could also consider adding some solar features to your home to make it more energy-efficient. You have several solar options available to you such as adding a solar water heater and solar heating.
