Open Up A Room and Maximize Your Square Footage

Springtime is for new beginnings and what better way to make your home feel new than knock down a wall, or two? You could open up your kitchen into the living room or dining area. You could indulge yourself and expand your bedroom square footage by getting rid of that clunky storage closet. Larger and more open floor plans are guaranteed to make your home feel fresh and exciting. It is essential to hire a contractor, engineer or architect before you go for the sledgehammer. You need to ensure the wall is not load bearing and you will need to attain permits. 

Bring On The Bright Colors

Spruce up your home with bright natural colors to tell those winter blues bye bye! Neutral colors are rising in popularity for interior paint this year. You can stay on trend with a yellow hued beige or a light gray. Not wanting to commit to a full paint job? Just switch out some old throw pillows or other decor items for some light yellows, greens, or other spring colors.

Update Your Bathroom With A Large Shower

If you’re looking for a sign to take the plunge and upgrade your bathroom – this is it! It’s high time to practice some “self-care” and give you and your bathroom the spa treatment. What are people buzzing about? Lately it is all about the large walk in showers. You can add multiple shower heads, built in shelving and even a small shower bench.

There are many advantages to a walk in shower concept versus a tub. There is less maintenance and it will stand up to wear and tear over time much better than other designs. You can also make your bathroom feel large by having the same tile flow from the bathroom floor to the shower. Learn more about tub to shower conversions here.
