Remodeling Ideas To Give Your Home A Fresh, New Look

A great remodeling idea is adding a new front door like this dark wood front door with white pillars, steps in the entry way

If your home feels a little bland, Spring is a great time to make some changes. You could always start small with a fresh coat of paint or even smaller by updating throw pillows and adding fresh flowers to your home.

If that doesn’t do the trick, don’t despair! Spring is an excellent time to make significant changes to your home.

Here are some home remodeling ideas we recommend starting in the Spring.

Add a Pantry

Remodeling ideas for the kitchen, like adding a food pantry, is a great addition

You may have forgotten all about your New Year’s resolutions by now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make new ones now! If you feel like your kitchen doesn’t have enough space or isn’t as organized as you’d like, add a pantry.

The space you have in and around your kitchen will determine how large of a pantry we can add. If all you have room for is a floor-to-ceiling cabinet, that’s okay! If you have space for a large walk-in pantry, even better.

Either way, the extra space will make your kitchen feel much less cluttered, and having an organized space will make you feel calmer and more relaxed when it comes time to prepare a meal or a snack.

Upgrade Your Doors

Doors make a gigantic difference in the overall style of your home. Replacing front doors with something more eye-catching and dramatic has been trendy for years since it makes a home look much better. Now, interior doors are getting some attention.

You have a lot of options when it comes to replacing doors. For bedroom and bathroom doors, bold colors are very popular and add a ton of character to a space. If you have doors leading to a patio, upgrading to either French doors or an oversized slider will make your living space look brighter while also elevating the feel of your outdoor space.

Update an Old Fireplace

Fireplaces are the focal point of a room, so if yours is outdated, chances are the rest of the room doesn’t look quite right. Simple and elegant fireplace surrounds featuring natural stone and neutral colors are on trend and will modernize your entire living area.

If your home doesn’t have a fireplace, a great remodeling idea is to add one! Since many homeowners are bored with the open concept home, adding a fireplace to your large kitchen/dining/living room space is a great way to define a space. Adding a fireplace between the dining and living areas is a great way to create separation without completely closing off a space by putting up a wall.

Build an Addition

Yes, it’s only Spring, but is it ever too early to start thinking about the holidays? If your guests were a little cramped last year, now is the time to tackle a major renovation like building a guest living quarters addition.

Spring is a great time to tackle those major home remodeling ideas since you shouldn’t have any weather-related delays, which means your new guest suite should be ready with time to spare!
