While most homeowners are familiar with kitchen or bathroom remodeling, there can be some confusion about what is involved with a first floor remodeling project. At the end of the day, it’s really up to you, the homeowner, what needs to be changed. Almost anything can be remodeled during this project, including the kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, offices, living room, dining room, hallways, entryways, and more! With constantly shifting interior design trends, it can be difficult to keep up. Here are some reasons you may want to look into remodeling the first floor of your home.
1. You Want More Natural Light
Did you know that, according to ComfyLiving, most houses in the United States need remodeling and improvement because around 80% of them are at least 20 years old? One of the biggest problems with older homes is the lack of an open floor plan, and therefore a lack of natural light. Luckily, a first floor remodel can open up your walls and space to allow light to travel further into your home. Even if the house that needs an upgrade is a relatively new build, there’s always room to grow and improve. During the remodel, you can also replace your windows to allow even more natural light with updated frames to fit your more modern aesthetic.
2. You Want Extra Bedrooms or an Office
There could be many reasons to spend time on an extra space, like in the form of an extra bedroom or a home office. For many homeowners, a first floor remodel provides the extra bedrooms needed for friends and family. On the other hand, many older adults see the benefits of remodeling to add a primary suite to the first floor so they don’t need to constantly walk up and down the stairs. If you find yourself working on your business from home, a first floor remodel can also give you the dedicated office space you need in your home or at your vacation home.
3. You Want a Bigger Bathroom
Is your first floor missing a full bathroom suite? You’re not alone! Many homes with more than one floor lack the bigger bathroom most homeowners and visitors want. Especially if you’re adding a primary suite with your first floor remodel, you’ll want a useable bathroom with a shower and potentially a sauna. Luckily, our first floor renovation contractors will be able to find the space to turn your existing bathroom into exactly what you need.
