The decision of whether to shop for a new home and move or stay in your current home and renovate is something that many homeowners find themselves grappling with. There can be many reasons to want to stay in your house: large yard, safe schools and neighborhood, and convenient location may all be factors. In any renovation project, one should think of what you would need to change in order to fall in love your home again.
The assessment of your home might not stop at the interior but rather extend to the outdoors as well.
This family wanted a large outdoor living space to enjoy together; a place where they could gather for meals, barbecues, or an evening fire. This new spacious patio offers plenty of shade during hot summer days as well as protection from rain and other inclement weather. The beautifully stained cedar ceiling adds drama to the space, while the skylights and exposed beams give an airy feel.
To bring in extra light, skylights were installed.
A large ceiling fan was also installed to help the patio stay cool even on the warmest days.
The new patio cover changes the whole look of the house, increasing its overall value and its everyday livability. It looks like a whole new house!
Stay tuned to see the transformation of this home’s kitchen in our next post.
