Interior Projects

If you're ready to tear down the walls and put up some new ones, interior remodeling projects allow you to enlarge living space and create future value for your home. The expansion of your home can lead to spacious and beautiful interiors. A new master bedroom or exciting gaming room are just two popular choices that people make when choosing a renovation project. There are also several ways to create unique cabinets, countertops, and flooring. An essential part to redecorating and rebuilding is understanding the materials, tools and steps required for starting and completing major renovation projects inside your home. Without knowing where to begin, your interiors may suffer visually in the end. You can also figure out ways to really utilize your current interior space, allowing you to spend less time in cleanup.

Every room in your home can benefit from an indoor remodel. There are so many different house plans to help you create the perfect space. You may simply want a more contemporary look or you want to change completely to a Victorian or art deco style home. You can get a lot of help designing these styles with a professional architect. From major all over projects to individual projects, you can create a much more welcoming and unique home by changing your interior.

Whether you want to remodel your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or living room areas, the type of changes that you may can even include new and exciting ideas, such as lava stone, faux eco-light skylights, and tankless water heaters. While some of these ideas pertain directly to building an energy conscious, you can create some aesthetically pleasing interior designs with the newest technology in remodeling.

You can change your home drastically without knocking down any walls or taking a jackhammer to the floors. You can create welcoming areas to any room without rearranging the floor plan either. By changing the paint, adding wall décor, and changing subtle details, you can really create more livable space.

Kitchen Remodeling

Kitchen remodeling projects can always seem daunting in both length of time, cost, and effort. However, there are many different kinds of kitchen remodels that can vary in scope dramatically!

Reasons to Remodel Your Kitchen

  1. Value
  2. The Average Kitchen has a return on investment of anywhere between 80% and 125% so if you make the right kitchen choices in the right market you could actually make a profit by remodeling your kitchen!

  3. Modern aesthetic
  4. As time has gone by, your tastes have changed and if walking into your kitchen in the morning to start your coffee brings a frown to your face it may be time for a change.

  5. Lifestyle change
  6. When you had 5 teenage boys living at home, you probably needed both ovens and the 8 burner stove top but now that it’s just you and your husband, maybe it’s time to consider a setup more tailored to your needs.

  7. Special Considerations
  8. This is a broader topic but it could be anything from a major dietary change to a sudden need to make your kitchen wheel chair accessible. There are plenty of more specialized reasons that could drive you to consider a kitchen remodel.

  9. Budding Home Gourmet Chef
  10. If you’ve been recently bitten with the Foodie bug and a desire to make incredible meals in your own home you may find yourself in need of more specialized equipment than your average home cook.

  11. Getting Ready To Sell
  12. This is, in our opinion, one of the more difficult reasons to update your kitchen. However, if you live in a higher end neighborhood where the expectation is a well-constructed kitchen is available at all price points you may have no choice but to handle the construction before putting your house on the market. Your real estate agent will be able to tell you if you live in one of those communities.

  13. Lower Your Energy Bill
  14. New windows, new kitchen appliances, new light fixtures using LED bulbs. All of these things can help to dramatically lower your energy bill. However, alone they’ll never offset the cost of your development for many green oriented consumers the lower energy footprint is worth it.

Kitchen Remodeling Costs

The cost of your remodeling is very dependent upon your market—the same kitchen in two different metro areas can vary in price as much as 25% and when you’re talking about kitchens that can be thousands of dollars! However, we can at least give you a few guide posts but please remember these are not estimates—just off the cuff figures. A very minor redo to a kitchen can cost as little as $5,000 dollars. A high end upscale gut-job can easily topple the $100,000 dollar mark.

There is a quick and easy way to get a rough idea on the costs for your kitchen. Count up the number of cabinets (uppers and floor) that you have in your current kitchen. Go to your home hardware store and find cabinets you like—add the price for your total number of cabinets. That’s about 20% of your total budget. Everything else just keeps adding on top of that but you can control some of the costs—how much you spend on appliances, custom cabinets vs pre-fabricated, and kitchen counter surface can all have a major impact on your expenses.
