Before and After: 8 Home Remodeling Ideas

Dreaming about giving your home a facelift?  No matter how happy you are with your house, there are probably a few rooms that need some TLC.  For instance, that kitchen you built in the early 2000s might be looking kind of dated,  the living areas are compartmentalized making the house feel dark and closed in, the bathroom tile is chipped and the grout is crumbling, or maybe you feel like your closet is getting cramped.

Home remodeling can transform your living spaces, making them more functional, stylish, and comfortable.

Here are eight home remodeling ideas to inspire you for your next project:

1. Goodbye Bedroom, Hello Walk-Through Closet

BEFORE

This Melbourne, Fl client approached us looking to remodel their master bathroom, closet, bedroom, and an attached, unused sitting area.  They wanted to rearrange the rooms with a primary goal of eliminating unused spaces and adding in more closet area.

To accomplish this, our team our design and construction team transformed the master suite turning the bedroom into a gorgeous walk through closet and turned the unused sitting room into the master bedroom. This brand new closet space now sits between the bathroom and the new master bedroom and features lots of custom features and storage solutions tailored to our client's needs. 

2. Airy & Bright Open Concept Living

As is common with houses built in the 1960s, the layout in this Tampa, Fl home was cramped, and compartmentalized, with wasted space. The kitchen was small, dark, and completely closed off from the rest of the house making interaction difficult for anyone working in there. Last but certainly not least, the home is on a canal. However, the walls surrounding the kitchen restricted the beautiful water views from the living and dining rooms.

What a transformation!  The formerly small, cramped, and dark living area is now a lighter, brighter space with beautiful water views visible from every room. Removing the walls and reconfiguring the layout completely transformed the home creating a more functional and open floor plan.

3.  Budget Friendly Kitchen Style Refresh

This Tampa kitchen was stuck in the early 2000's and the homeowners wanted a fresh and updated look for their home.

 These homeowners were looking for a budget friendly refresh for their outdated kitchen as well as added storage and functionality.  To accomplish this, we kept the existing footprint as well as the appliances and flooring, but we changed the cabinets, backsplash, lighting, countertops and kitchen island.   If your current layout works for you, then talk to your designer about an update in place remodel. You’ll save money and the results can still be dramatic, as you can see here. Win-win! 

4. Charming Fireplace Makeover

This Tampa, Fl remodel included the kitchen as well as the fireplace.  Our designer created cohesion in the room by using the same material for both the fireplace and the kitchen countertops.  The result is a beautifully blended design that looks fresh and beautiful in the space.
