Residential Remodeling Ideas From Pro Tampa Bay General Contractors
Is your kitchen dysfunctional, your bathrooms too small, or are the doors and windows saggy and old? Remodeling these key areas of the home can make quite a bit of difference. Remodeling can be done anytime you need a change, but most often it’s done to bring the style up to date from decades ago.
Styles change as time goes on. Sometimes a style will come back around and be revamped to the modern times. No matter the reason for the remodeling, it should add value to the home and make you completely happy living there.
Do you know what you’d like to change in your Tampa Bay area home? Would remodeling be the answer? If so, take a look at the residential remodeling ideas below from our Tampa Bay general contractors at Cothron Contracting, LLC. We are a fully licensed and insured general contractor firm with nearly 40 years of experience and have a great standing in the communities we live and work in. Here are some tips and ideas for remodeling your home.
Remodeling The Kitchen
It’s out with the old and in with the new when remodeling your kitchen. Unless you already have solid stone installed, like granite countertops and slate floors, the materials probably haven’t stood up well to the test of time. The floors and countertops are a large surface area and have to be very durable. Replacing the floor and installing new countertops is the first step many homeowners take when remodeling.
Other things change as well in a kitchen. The functional use of a kitchen has also changed over the decades. Long ago, homes were built with large kitchens that had fireplaces and tables to sit plenty of people. Then, home kitchens got smaller and were shut off from the rest of the house by a door. Today, we like open kitchens once more with plenty of room to prepare food and commune with family or entertain friends. You may want to change the layout in the kitchen to be more functional and open.
Keep these things in mind when planning your kitchen remodeling project. If you’d like to have a general contractor help you with the design plans, call us and we’d be glad to help.
Bathroom Remodeling Projects
One design trend that can sometimes be annoying for a more functionally minded person is remodeling the bathroom but forgetting about where to put the toothpaste, hairbrush, blow dryer, and the rest of the toiletries we all use. You can literally find thousands of articles about remodeling small bathrooms to achieve the most storage space, so you know it’s important! It will be important to find the right vanity, shelving, and other features that look great but don’t take away from the function of the space. Custom built cabinetry and shelving is always a great remodeling idea for the bathroom.
Replacing The Windows In Your Bradley Beach Home
There are many ways to improve the energy efficiency of a home. Extra insulation, siding, and window replacement are key remodeling ideas that help you for years to come. Now that your windows are so old you can’t stand them anymore, it’s time to replace them with energy efficient windows. While it costs your hard-earned dollars to get the project done, it really is worth it.
Even standard windows of today are made better than a decade or two ago, so energy efficient windows can make a huge impact. Some windows can block up nearly all the heat from the sun while still letting the view in. New technologies have made this possible. And of course, there are all those in between to choose from.
Call us today because we have many great residential remodeling ideas for you. Working with a Tampa Bay general contractor will help you achieve the perfect design for your home.
