Known for our modular homes and modular additions, we are well-versed in designing and creating the perfect home environments. And at Carbide Construction, we firmly believe in the value of a professional home remodeler, and there are several good reasons you should only trust professionals like us when you want to have your home renovated. As a remodeling contractor for Washington DC and the entire Northern Virginia area, we would like to share a few of our favorite remodeling and modular home design tips.
Begin in the Kitchen
This applies to both a new kitchen in a modular home or a kitchen renovation. Start thinking about what you want to use your kitchen for. Do you want to entertain guests in the kitchen? Do you want ample storage? Start thinking about the other ways you use your kitchen and factor those activities into your remodeling or building plans. For example, if your kid usually does homework in the kitchen, maybe you should consider having an island with some stools installed, or maybe you should have a built-in desk installed.
Look online and see what other people have done for their bathroom remodeling projects and keep these ideas in one spot to revisit. That way, if you are unsure about a certain idea or design element, you can keep looking at it until you make up your mind. Also, working with your remodeling contractor or remodeler can help clarify your ideas and make your design dreams a reality.
Water-efficient appliances are also an important consideration. You can find everything from water efficient toilets, water efficient faucets and taps that will look great and also help conserve water.
You might encounter some problems with the electrical wiring when you are working on home renovations. Professionals will either know how to do this task safely or they will have trusted subcontractors that know how to safely rewire your electrical system. And, when designing a modular home or modular home addition, it is always a good idea to have the contractor you’re working with take care of the electric.
Other Remodeling and Building Trends
One of the biggest trends these days is having a laundry room on the same floor as the bedrooms. This makes doing the laundry and putting it away a lot easier. Do you want something like this? Or maybe you prefer to have the laundry room in the basement. No matter what your preference, make sure your modular home builder or remodeling contractor is aware.
