If you are looking to do a little home updating and remodeling, why not focus on the family room? The family room is typically more laid-back and casual than other, more formal rooms like the living room, which is commonly used to entertain guests. Here, warmth and hominess take precedence over fashion and style, but that doesn’t mean the family room and its furnishings can’t be attractive and inviting.
Here are some tips from Callen Construction that will help you decide the areas it’s okay to splurge on when it comes to remodeling your family room.
In this room, where family and close friends gather to relax and spend time together, comfort matters. It’s the perfect place to splurge on a thick, plush carpet that you can sink your feet into, rather than a thinner, more economical variety. If your family room has hardwood or tile floors, invest in a high-quality area rug and have plenty of throws and pillows around the room to soften it up.
Many family rooms are adjacent to a deck, patio, or other outdoor space. If your family room has a standard hinged door or an outdated, inefficient sliding door, it could greatly benefit from having Callen Construction install a new, energy-efficient patio door. Whether you opt for the increased glass area of a contemporary sliding patio door or prefer the more classic styling of a French sliding patio door, splurging on a new door will allow you to brighten things up and connect your indoor and outdoor living spaces.
Lower Level Remodeling
Set away from the hustle and bustle of the main floor, the basement is a great location for a family room. Callen can do the job by converting an unfinished or under-finished basement space into a family room, bedroom, playroom, or second kitchen area. We can even do bathroom remodeling if your basement bathroom needs updating. However you choose to use the space, finishing your basement will provide additional living space while also increasing your home’s value.
