Expecting a new addition to the family? Or perhaps you have loved ones coming back? Then you may need to plan your upcoming remodeling projects accordingly. Your local new construction company Ritco Inc. shares remodeling ideas that help make room for your growing family.
Open Floor Plan
An open floor plan helps make your home feel spacious by eliminating partition walls in your home. This gives you more flexibility with certain areas in your home, such as the dining and living rooms. This also gives elderly family members more space to move around, as they won’t be restricted by closed doors. Open floor plans will also let you get more effective use of ventilation and natural lighting from the windows.
Attic or Basement Conversion
Unused attics and unfinished basements are perfect for expanding your home’s living area without having to build an upper story, which, in turn, may require a roofing new construction. Attic conversion is the best project for certain roof styles, such as gambrel and Mansard roofs, because of the nearly vertical side that can accommodate additional windows.
Attics and unfinished basements are generally not designed as living areas, so your remodeler should address basics such as ventilation, humidity control, and insulation. In the case of basements, egress and waterproofing must also be observed.
Also known as in-law suites, granny flats are attached or separate dwellings within the property that allow its occupants privacy. Granny flats are typically occupied by aging in-laws, and usually have their own bathroom and kitchen. Accessibility features may also be installed. A granny flat can also double as a guest house or home office when not in use.
If your morning rituals include battling it out on who gets to use the hot water first, you have to have additional bathrooms in your home. If you happen to be living with elderly family members, accessibility upgrades should be included with your remodeling plans: walk-in bathtubs, level floors, and grab bars among them.
