An open floorplan continues to be a homeowner’s choice to create all they want and desire in their existing home. But can you transform your Colonial or Cape Cod into the open concept of a ranch style home? The simple answer is yes. By space planning with a professional designer, you can start with a blank slate and rebuild your first floor living area.
In 2021, families are looking for a home office, sometimes two, a playroom/home schooling space, a larger kitchen, a media/lounge room for teenage kids, and a space to entertain guests casually and formally. Truly living in our homes has become truer over the past year, as it is now where we work, attend school, play, host, and relax.
Where do you start? By asking yourself what you need in your home, and what you want to be able do in your home. These are two very different questions, and may be hard to answer, but with the help of a professional and trusted remodeling company like Callen, you will be guided through all the possibilities. You may be looking for a space for your whole family to hang out, like an extra-large kitchen, as well as some private quiet space you can retreat to. You may want to incorporate a home gym but do not want it to be a prominent area and take up too much space. Or maybe a space to play billiards, shuffleboard, or jam out on your guitar. You would be surprised at all the storage, seating, and space utilizing tricks professional space designers have up their sleeves.
Your designer will create a design with you that addresses all the fun stuff like new flooring, new cabinets, countertops, backsplash, faucets, lighting, wall colors, trim, as well as the not so exciting stuff like plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. There are many creative ways to hide these mechanical needs so you will not even know they are there, and they will not intrude into your living space.
At Callen, we listen intently to your wants and needs and consider and review all options based on design and your budget. We will give you an honest and creative evaluation of your existing space, and complete it as planned within the specified timeframe.
