Most homeowners have a wish list of changes they’d love to make so their home would be just perfect. We bet you do too! Often the problem is too little space: “If only my house had more storage” or “We sure could make better use of the basement if only it wasn’t so dark and damp” or “If only I had more counter space in my kitchen.” Maybe you thought you would just have to make do with your too-tight home. But one or more of these 6 practical remodeling ideas could be the solution you need to make your home just right, while adding value to it at the same time.
Kitchen and family room combined into one open space by Metro Building & Remodeling Group.
1. Wide Open Spaces
One high-impact change that will make a huge difference in how your home feels is combining two rooms, like the kitchen and family room, into one open space. We can show you the best way to remove and reposition walls to create a more open floor plan and improve the flow in your home. The result will be a more versatile place for your family and a more welcoming area for entertaining.
2. More Elbow Room
If older parents or adult children moving into your home have made it a bit too “cozy,” consider a home addition. We can design and build a suite with a separate entrance and maybe its own kitchenette and bath for added privacy. Transforming your unfinished basement into a warm and bright living space can also help create just enough breathing room to make a big difference.

3. Your Family’s New Favorite Place to Be
Does that new flat-screen TV suddenly make the family room feel way too small? Do you wish family members could relax in the same room even though they’re each on their own device? Consumer electronics have changed how we use our time and our family rooms. We can work with you to redesign the room to create the perfect spot for your whole family to be together. Built-in storage, more outlets for charging devices and games, and maybe a snack center with a mini-fridge!
4. Make Cooking Fun Again
If you find inspiration in one (or more) cooking shows, you should consider an updated gourmet kitchen for yourself. A new layout can improve flow, make your kitchen feel more inviting, and maybe even make cooking fun again! If you are already happy with your kitchen’s basic layout, consider refreshing it with new lighting, counter surfaces, cabinets, flooring, more storage, and smart appliances that are also more energy-efficient.

5. Add a Peaceful Retreat
Perhaps your “if only” list has always included a quiet, personal space to call your own. Maybe a window-walled sunroom where you can read, or a beautiful master suite with a bathroom where you can relax while sinking into a deep soaking tub. Haven’t you earned some “me” time? We can make it happen.
6. Everything in its Place
We hear all the time that excessive clutter makes a home feel like it’s bursting at the seams. If this is one of the items on your list, we can design solutions such as customized walk-in fitted closets and pantries, finished storage spaces with custom cabinetry, designated study areas, a home office, or built-in storage in the basement. We can re-work the space you have so it’s so organized you won’t recognize it!
