2018 is now in full-swing. While some of us are still reveling in the promise of a fresh start that a new year brings, others may have already let them fall by the wayside. Regardless where you are, the new year is the perfect time for a change.
This may mean finally starting those home improvement projects you’ve been putting off, or even considering a whole home remodel. There is no better way to set yourself up for a year of success than with a beautifully and energetically aligned renovated home.
As home renovation experts, our passion is helping our clients get a fresh start with their renovations including kitchens, bathrooms and basements – or even a complete home remodel! Here are a few ideas to get your project started:
Install New Flooring
Does something about your home feel tired or outdated but you can’t quite put your finger on what it is? Consider your floors. Floors are often overlooked in whole home remodeling, but the right flooring can really pull a space together. You may choose to give it a more modern look or simply play a role in you and your family’s comfort (no more looking at those marked up floors from the dog!). Swap (or refinish) your old, scratched-up cherry floors, or, for a more plush feeling underfoot, find some modern area rugs for common areas. Carpet is coming back into fashion in a new and refreshed way and the range of quality carpets at reasonable prices is at an all-time high.
Renovate Your Kitchen
Your kitchen is the heart of your home, so why live with a kitchen you don’t truly love? There are a variety of ways you can renovate your kitchen that won’t break the bank. Whether you completely redo your kitchen or simply upgrade your appliances, January is the perfect month to start planning how to give your kitchen a new look and set yourself up for a year of cooking delicious meals. Unsure of where to start? Read our post: “ 7 Essential Elements of Kitchen Design.”
Change Your Floor Plan
A great way to transform your home and begin anew is to change up your floor plan. Most homeowners in Ashburn, VA (and beyond) want a more open space. Consider knocking down a wall (or two) to open up your living area. Remodel that spare closet you no longer need and turn it into a guest bathroom. Or, expand your kitchen for a little more cooking space. A different floor plan is a great way to give yourself a whole new perspective.
Finish Your Basement
Make 2018 the year you finally take advantage of the square footage in your basement! If your basement is unfinished (or partially-finished), now is the time to turn it into a space you love. Basements have almost endless renovation possibilities, and can be used for many purposes at once. If your family is a little cramped upstairs, turn part of the basement into an additional bedroom and add a new bathroom. For more shared space, add another living area and a recreation room. If you simply want to use your basement for laundry and storage, give the space a new look to avoid the dreaded “dark cellar” basement. Check out some of our basement renovation tips.
Align Your Home!
Feeling low on energy when you are at home? Try shifting that energy by incorporating Feng Shui elements! Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice of creating a positive, harmonious environment to promote health and wellness. As you complete your home renovation, incorporating Feng Shui into your interior design can freshen up your space and give you a new outlook. When you partner with Synergy, we not only design the architectural details of the renovation, we offer Interior Alignment™ practices, such as Feng Shui techniques to ensure every beautiful space we create promotes the flow of positive energy and creativity.
