There is so much that goes into transforming a home that it’s easy to overlook some of the smaller details but when done right these things can really help a project stand out from the rest. We’ve outlined some of our favorite parts of the home to keep in mind as you begin your renovation journey!
The entry to your home is crucial to making a great first impression and even serves as a nice conversation starter. The biggest decision is whether to choose a stained or painted door. While both look amazing, it comes down to what complements your siding the best. Typically, stained pairs well with wood or clay tones however, if you’re looking for something to add an extra splash of color then opt for painted. The front door is not just for show however, we like to make sure that it also allows natural light in to brighten up the entryway.
There are so many ways to get creative when it comes to your staircases especially in split level conversations. Most people are familiar with the traditional straight design which features no change in direction, but “L” or “U” shaped options feature a landing that breaks up different flights. If you’re adventurous you can take it back in time with a spiral staircase but be careful because while this may look great on paper, they’re not as practical or easy to navigate. In terms of accessorizing, adding iron balusters to the railing can be another nice upgrade to add an extra dimension.
The kitchen is one of the most important investments in any home and the keystone to a great kitchen is an island. Aside from looking great, islands provide a lot of benefits. First, it serves as additional seating which makes for a convenient gathering place for kids to do homework or when extended family or friends come over to visit. Additionally, kitchen islands offer extra storage and countertop space, so even smaller kitchens feel larger.
