Each Niagara winter, a little snow must fly
Love it or hate it, winter has arrived in Niagara. That means snow and ice to go along with the sometimes frigid temperatures. Since your home is likely one of your biggest investments, it stands to reason protecting it will be one of your highest priorities.
Hallways - A waste of space...or wasted opportunity?
While most would agree that a well-designed home will keep hallway space to a minimum, it is important to understand that hallways are often a necessary space that are simply under-utilized.
What lies beneath ... your stairs?
So often, the space beneath a staircase is under-utilized or inefficiently used. This area may be unusually shaped, but it can be highly functioning and aesthetically pleasing with the right design and custom renovation.
Fall has arrived
It’s that time of year again… when the changing of leaves means fall is upon us and that means there are a few more chores to do.
'Diva Den' inspired by the 'Man Cave'
Men have their “man caves,” the space where they go to get away from it all, but what does that leave for women?
While there may be discussions, jokingly or otherwise, that women have the rest of the house, it is likely that most people would agree that the home is “shared space”.
The Laundry Room that Makes Laundry Bearable
Function is always at its best when combined with form. We do this in other rooms, but the laundry and mudroom are probably the most neglected rooms in a house. Redesigning your laundry room through a custom renovation can make the chore seem like less of one.
Taking the Cave out of the 'Man Cave'
A ‘Man Cave’ should certainly speak to the man that occupies and enjoys the space, but it doesn’t have to be a true cave. When creating a ‘Man Cave’, it is important to consider the following planning tips:
The Only Room on Earth
Many are fortunate to have a room that they would just love to live in. It’s a room that embodies them, offers them their unique idea of tranquility and peace by its mere existence. This room may just make you stop in your tracks because it is simply beautiful, efficient and/or peaceful. It is perfection... for you!
After this very long winter, it is no wonder that people are longing to rediscover the joy of outdoor living and hopefully soon, that will be a reality.
The Interim Home
If you are thinking of renovating, but this will not be your permanent or final home, you may want to concentrate on certain areas of the home. As always, ensure that your renovation reflects your taste so that you enjoy this space while you are there, but in the case of an interim home consider the need to make choices that will also allow the new homeowner to feel like it was made for them too.
