Projects To Consider for 2014

What’s your New Year’s resolution? Do you want to eat healthier? Get in shape? Be more productive? Perhaps this is the year you’re going to pursue that hobby you’ve always wanted to make time for. Whatever it may be, the key to keeping your resolutions is making your environment as conducive to success as possible.

1. Eating Healthy

You know how important it is to eat healthy. But you also know that eating healthier meals means cooking healthier meals. Well, cooking healthy isn’t much fun when you don’t like your kitchen. If the appliances are to blame, consider upgrading one or all of them with high-performance, high-efficiency models. You’d be surprised how fun it is to cook when you actually have the appliances to do it right. Then again, maybe you need a complete kitchen overhaul to give you the space you need to cook in comfort. If you’ve been thinking about remodeling your kitchen, now’s the perfect time to talk to us about designing your new kitchen!

2. Staying Fit

Hands down the most common resolution has to be “getting in shape.”Of course, getting in shape is a whole lot easier when you’re able to work out without leaving your home. This year, instead of shelling out cash for an expensive gym membership, why not spend the money remodeling that spare bedroom you never use into a home gym? Building a home gym is a project that’s a lot more doable than you might think, especially when you consider that all you need is a spare room or create a new room. The best part is your gym can be as simple or elaborate as you want to make it. Maybe all you need is a place for your treadmill and a wall-mounted flat screen TV. Or perhaps you want to go the whole nine yards and include cardio equipment, weights, and an open space to do workout videos. Either way, if you’ve got the space and equipment, you’ve got a home gym.

3. Be More Productive

Whether you work from home or simply want a place where you can work at home, building a home office is a project you’ve probably been considering for some time. The key to building an efficient workspace is to design it with productivity in mind. That might seem like an obvious statement, but you’d be surprised by how many people try to piecemeal their home office together. Your goal is to create a space that makes it easier to focus and get work done. To do that, you’ll need to make sure it has enough outlets to accommodate your office equipment, is adequately lit, and has plenty of storage.

4. Stress Less. Relax More.

Kicking back and relaxing at the end of a long day is one of life’s simple pleasures. Funny, then, how it can be one of the hardest things to do, especially when you don’t have place where you can get away from it all. This year is the year to do something about it. This is the year you remodel your extra space. Whether you’re doing a complete remodel, installing a home theater, or building that game room you’ve always wanted, remodeling your extra space is a project that improves the comfort and value of your home. And while this type of remodeling costs vary; most clients spend between $19,379 and $25,631 on their remodels.
