Maximize Space in Your Custom Built Home

Building a custom home is a great experience. But sticking within your budget can be difficult. When figuring out how much your new home is going to cost, you usually have to think in terms of square footage. But there are ways to increase your square footage and still save. For example, building up by adding a second story on the house is less expensive than building out, because that’s less area that will need a foundation and roof coverage. I started this blog to help you find ways to get the space that you need in your custom home, without having to spend more than you can afford. Building my custom home was the best money I ever spent, and I’m happy to help you learn how to get the custom home you want.

Do You Get A Brand New Kitchen In Your Existing House?

Construction & Contractors Blog

Have you lived in your house for such a long time that your kitchen might as well have been designed in the Dark Ages? Or, maybe you moved into a previously owned residence and you wonder how the last owner even functioned in the kitchen. Those might be exaggerations, but there might be some truth to them, right? Do you have your kitchen remodel plan already? If not, from selecting new countertops and cabinets to buying new furniture, here are some ideas that might help you as you go forward with your kitchen remodeling project.

​Get Professionals On Board For Your Kitchen Remodel - Your kitchen remodeling job will more than likely not be inexpensive. With that in mind, wouldn't it be smart to arrange for kitchen remodeling services? The professionals who will advise you on choices will have the training and the experience to help you with things like selecting cabinets that will complement the countertops you choose.

For example, if you decided to go with black granite countertops in order to establish a contemporary look in your kitchen, the professionals from the kitchen remodeling services might suggest that you go with all white cabinetry. Doing that will keep with the contemporary look you want, and it will add contrast at the same time.

Maybe you have decided on a farm-themed kitchen. In that case, the kitchen remodeling professionals might recommend butcher block for the material of your countertops. For something very unique, it might be recommended that you go with barn red for the color of your kitchen cabinets. 

Select The Furniture For Your New Kitchen - Of course, the kitchen remodeling experts can help you with the furniture choices for your new kitchen. However, you can also get ideas from home decorating magazines. Or, you could also go to furniture stores for ideas.

For example, when looking through home decorating magazines you might fall in love with a metal table and chair set. Wouldn't that be perfect for a contemporary kitchen? On the other hand, you might find a picnic style wooden table and benches to go with it. They might be just what you need for your farm-themed kitchen. Or, you could also buy unfinished furniture and paint it the same barn red that you selected for your cabinets. 

Look for extras that will add interest to your kitchen. For example, if there is enough space, think about having an old-fashioned school desk in the kitchen. Or, select a floor to ceiling shelf where you can display things like your cookbooks and your favorite kitchen collectibles.
