You love your home. You love the neighborhood and the easy access to work, school, and amenities. You love the location and how it allows you to enjoy Florida’s sun and nature year-round. However, the time has come to move on. Or has it?
The fact is, even if you’re perfectly happy with the structure and location of your property, lifestyle changes and preferences require necessary upgrades and additions. That’s when it’s wise to contact custom home builders specialized in luxury remodeling (such as Platinum Builders).
Here are some of the most popular remodeling upgrades today:
1) Kitchen Considerations
Your kitchen is one of the most used areas of your home. From food preparation (including cooking) to dining, and simply enjoying conversation with friends and loved ones, the kitchen is a hub of activity in any house.
Trending again this year are large kitchen islands. Both fashionable and functional, these additions create a focal point to the room while providing ample space in which to prepare and serve food to family and guests. Today’s custom homes can be tailored to your personal preferences, including countertop materials and a variety of other options.
2) Bathroom Beautification
The bathroom goes far beyond its intended purpose. More homeowners are creating resort-style experiences in this frequently-visited area. That includes custom countertops, sleek hardware upgrades (faucets, cabinet knobs), and more.
Your guests and family members will appreciate the special attention given to cleanliness when you upgrade to an advanced tub/shower motif complete with water jets that create a peaceful and relaxing scene.
Don’t overlook the importance of a well-designed mirror and lighting combination. You, guests, care about their appearance. Upgrades in this regard show your consideration and respect.
3) Innovative Interior Ideas
Most homeowners don’t give much thought to ceilings. Still, there are many unique ideas where ceilings can add interest and ambiance. For instance, wooden beam accents have become a favorite design element. Some homeowners opt for recycled wood to bring a natural and environmentally-friendly feel inside the home.
Hardwood floors are now a feature in many homes. These surfaces are durable, easy to clean, and can instantly brighten a dark room. Living spaces are ideal for this type of flooring (living room, bedrooms, home office/exercise room).
In addition, heated floors are also becoming increasingly popular, even in warm climates like Central Florida. This year, there have been several days that have come close to freezing. Weather experts expect that trend to continue for the next several years. Heated floors keep toes and feet toasty without warming the entire house. Over time, this saves you money.
4) Fresh Focus
Any REALTOR® will tell you that curb appeal is essential. Regardless of whether you plan to sell your home, a well-designed entryway creates a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Popular upgrades include ornate and detailed front doors and glass. Also appealing are stone accents and back porch enclosures.
Inside, the focus is on open floor plans. People like to have space to move around or simply relax. That means outdated nooks, cutouts, and other elements should be upgraded to create a better flow. In addition, clunky and outdated furniture should be replaced with more sleek and modern selections.
