5 Rooms to Renovate in Your Home

1 | Kitchens

The most popular renovation is (and likely will be for the foreseeable future) your kitchen. Kitchens have become the focal point of homes everywhere. You can drastically improve the quality and value of your home by renovating this room first. There are countless ways to improve your kitchen, so consider updating the style of your cabinets, adding an island, upgrading to stone countertops, and new tile backsplash.

2 | Basements

Most basements are unfinished in new home construction. Often there are just exterior walls built for insulation purposes and a mechanical room. Renovating your basement is a great way to expand your living space in your home. Consider adding an entertainment room, a guest bedroom, bathroom, or even a wine room! Our design team will be happy to lay out your basement renovation any way you want.

3 | Bathrooms/Ensuites

Much like kitchens, bathroom styles change every couple of years and if you still have carpet in your bathroom, you should renovate! Showers come in a wide variety of styles now-a-days. Tile based, glass door showers are a very nice look. Upgrading your toilet can improve your home’s water efficiency. Consider upgrading to a contemporary vanity with stone countertops, modern style sink and new faucets/fixtures.

4 | Bedrooms

They’re a private and personal space in your home. Why not renovate your bedroom to best suit your relaxation needs? Consider built-in shelving and storage cabinets, walk-in closets, or a throughway to an ensuite. Expanding room square footage will give you some extra space to ease accessibility. Integrating a “Jack and Jill” bathroom between two bedrooms is great for people with kids.

5 | Closets

We don’t often think of renovating closets, but simple improvements can improve storage. Closets come in different styles. Walk-in closets can be tailored to suit your apparel and jewelry. Adding a walk-in closet to your master bedroom will make life much simpler. Hallway and foyer closets can be improved with built-in shelving and cabinetry for coats, shoes, and all your linen storage needs.

Honorable mention – Outdoor Living Spaces

OK, fair enough, this isn’t exactly a “room,” per se, but we wanted to include it because the popularity of this area is exploding off the charts when it comes to exterior home improvements. Consider putting in outdoor overhead gas heaters (imagine those cold Calgary & Edmonton winters, except you’re cozy out on your heated deck), stunning Kayu decking, accompanied by modern glass railing and even an outdoor television set!
