The days are finally getting longer, warmer, and brighter! And since May is National Home Improvement Month, why not take that “spring cleaning” urge a step further and do some remodeling that will really make your home shine?

1.   Expand your interiors

Maybe your house is tiny, but you love the neighborhood, love the neighbors – it’s a perfect location.  Give yourself the gift of the extra room you need with a home addition. Our careful design process will ensure the new space blends in seamlessly with your existing home style. (Or, if you want to change the look of your home’s exterior while you’re at it, we can do that too!)

2.   Upgrade your exterior

Now’s a great time to replace roofing, repair gutters and repaint trim that may have been damaged during the winter. Or, think bigger: add a relaxing front porch, install energy-efficient doors or windows, or build a backyard deck or patio with an outdoor kitchen that will be the perfect spot for entertaining each summer.

3.   Lighten the atmosphere

Older homes in Northern Virginia are often boxy and dark. We can create a more open feel for your home and give it a better flow by removing and repositioning walls. Larger, energy-efficient windows will brighten the space. You’ll appreciate changes like this every single day, when you notice the difference in the way a lighter, brighter home also lifts your mood.

4.   Embrace innovation

If you love your Alexa smart speaker, you probably know that many smart home innovations will also let you connect, monitor and control multiple systems and appliances from wherever you are, with a phone, tablet or computer. Control your interior and exterior lights and thermostat. Close the garage door or window shades. Preheat your oven while you’re driving home. Updating your home’s technology will not only make it more enjoyable to live in but will increase its perceived value as well.

5.   Recapture unused space

We can help you transform an unused room, basement or attic into an extra bedroom, home office, hobby room, or whatever you need. There’s no limit to what we can do to help you make better use of your home, and we’re eager to share our ideas with you!

Take advantage of “Home Improvement Month” to do more than just buying a new refrigerator or replacing a faucet. Remodeling updates in any part of your home can make a big difference in how it looks, works and feels for your family. We can help with all kinds of home improvement projects. Let’s talk today!
