Let’s face facts, we are all glad that 2021 is over. Are you ready to hit “refresh” on your life and your home? Last month we shared with you some fabulous photos of a recent whole-house remodeling project completed by Metro in Leesburg, Virginia. If you read that and found yourself inspired to finally make some “wish list” updates to your own home, we have some suggestions on ways to get a kick start on planning a revamp for your whole house, or even just a few rooms.

Is this the year to do some remodeling that really makes a difference in how your home looks and works for your family?
1/Expand your Interior
We hear it all the time: great neighborhood, great neighbors, but a house that’s too small! Give yourself and your family some elbow room with a beautiful one-level (or two-level) addition to your home. Tell us what you need, and we’ll get to work. We excel at innovative design, so the new space will blend in naturally with the existing style of your home.
2/Lighten the Mood
Are you craving a lighter, brighter home? If you have a house that is boxy and dark, we can remove and reposition walls to create a better flow and a more open feel for your home. We can also add energy efficient windows to bring more natural light to the space. You’ll not only appreciate the style update, but you’ll also notice the difference in the way a home that’s not gloomy makes your mood a little bit brighter every day.
Today’s smart home innovations allow you to connect, monitor, and control multiple systems and appliances from wherever you are with a phone, tablet or computer. Control your interior and exterior lights and thermostat. Close the garage door or window shades. Let the dog walker or the in-laws in even when you’re miles away. Preheat your oven while you’re driving home and have a refrigerator that reminds you when you’re out of milk. Updating your home will not only make it more enjoyable to live in but will increase its perceived value as well.
4/Reclaim Unused Space

We’ve helped our clients transform unused rooms and basements into home offices, hobby rooms, game rooms, exercise rooms, home theaters, and even a personal sports bar. We especially love taking on basements that need help. We can show you that there’s no limit to what can be done with the under-utilized space in your home!
Don’t let another year go by living in a home you don’t absolutely love. We have lots of ideas we’d love to share with you. And we’d love to hear your ideas for what would make you fall in love with your home again. Let’s talk!
