I love my home. If you’re reading this, you probably love your home too. But chances are, you have a list of things you’d like to change. Most home owners don’t even have to stop and think. The kitchen island is too small, the bathroom counter too low, the sink is on the wrong side of the laundry room, and the closets in the master bedroom can’t fit my winter coats.
You’re not alone. According to the BC Stats, there’s been a more than 15% increase in year to date spending on residential building permits between 2013 and 2014 in the Thompson/Okanagan region of BC. That means that more Kelownans have decided to make 2014 their remodel summer
Don’t you deserve the best possible version of your house? Doesn’t your house deserve to be a showpiece? It’s not difficult to transform the experience of your home without losing any of its natural charm. Below are five popular remodels in our area and why people get them.
Nationwide, the kitchen remodel is consistently the most popular. The kitchen is one of the rooms we spend the most time in, and it’s a room we need to be able to navigate easily. A remodel can bring modernity and ease of use to this, the most useful room in your home.
The bathroom remodel is the second most popular construction. A lot of older builders made this room for functionality, sometimes at the cost of form and luxury. With the right changes, a bathroom can become the lush, tranquil retreat it should be.
A lot of Canadians get their closets remodeled when they make other changes. Frequently the space in question is next to or adjacent to a closet, and home owners take advantage of this in order to expand their closet space.
4. Room Addition
Adding a bathroom, bedroom, or even a sun room is another popular remodel choice. As families grow, and life changes happen, a remodel can add room for a baby, create a home office, even an indoor pool or game room.
5. Master Suite
Like the bathroom remodel, the master suite remodel is about luxury and comfort. At the end of the day, you want your space to reflect your style, to be a place where you can leave the rest of the world behind. With a master suite remodel, you’ll get exactly what you want. Add a balcony, or an en suite bathroom. Cut bigger windows for better views, or add a sunroof above the bed.
The majority of the work I do is building a new house from scratch, but I also remodel homes for clients who already like where they live, but want the luxury and comfort of a custom built home. Call me at 250.878.9411, let’s talk about how you could be living.
