Remodeling Resolutions for the New Year

Personal resolutions come into play every new year. For 2024, homeowners’ resolutions are including much-needed home improvements. With working from home still playing a role in our lives, it’s important to create a home built for comfort. Remodeling allows you to update key areas of your space while also saving energy and adding value. Not sure where you get started on your list of remodeling resolutions for the new year? Here is our list of 2024’s top ideas to get you started.

Convert Unused Spaces into Functional Rooms

When it comes to home design, one of the most important things you can do is identify areas that are not being used properly. The key is turning unused rooms into flexible areas that serve multiple purposes. Here are a few ideas to get you started on your room remodels:

  • Under the stair storage – Take advantage of the under-stair storage space by turning it into a private office space or reading nook. Add shelving, pull-out drawers, or closets within easy reach. By taking advantage of unused space, you can easily hide your valuables and keep important items within easy reach while still keeping them out of sight.
  • Think of every corner – A corner wall is a unique and creative space in your living room for displaying collectibles, displaying art, or creating a mini-bar. In some instances, this space can be converted into a resting space or even a mini bar!
  • Open floor plan ideas – When rooms lack defined areas for specific uses, it can give the space an unorganized vibe. Consider using unique shelving in your entryway to showcase items you love, or functional furniture to separate spaces more efficiently.

There are so many ways to create flexible, useful spaces in your home! It’s only limited by your imagination. If you have high ceilings, consider adding a mezzanine for a home office or guest space; or use nooks in a long hallway for hanging storage. Even an underused dining room can be converted into something that can be used more often, as well as re-converted back into an entertainment space.

Smarten Your Home

We’ve all heard of Amazon’s Alexa or automatic Ring cameras – and there’s a good reason. Smart technology has become almost a necessity in your home, helping make everyday life easier, saving energy, and adding a sense of security. When you’re starting your remodeling resolutions for the new year, consider bringing your home into the future with smart technology.

A smart thermostat paired with a new heating and cooling system can help you save money and make your home more comfortable. These technologies work automatically to provide the optimal temperature for each room, adjusting as needed on the fly based on conditions inside and outdoors.
Smart lighting and appliances are also a great way to cut down your bills and improve your way of living. With smart lighting, door locks, and security systems, your home can be protected 24/7 without needing to add bulky equipment to your walls or ceilings.

Apart from safety, efficiency is just another reason to go smart. From refrigerators that remind you of your grocery list and ovens that let you know when food is done, to smart washers and dryers that wash your clothes while you sit back and relax, there’s a range of options available.

Go Green

A green home is a happy home. Not only can thinking a little more green create a cleaner outcome, but it can also save you money on products in the long run. A greener home is also an efficient home. In recent years, there have been many advances in sustainable and recycled materials for construction, furniture, and appliances. By switching to smart building materials, you can save on energy bills while making your home a more comfortable, healthy place to live.

If you don’t have the option to go completely green in your home, energy-efficient lightbulbs are frequently used in light fixtures, bathrooms, and lamps to help bring down the cost of your electricity. bill. In addition, if you’re remodeling a home by removing parts and putting in new doors, shelving, or other necessities, consider reusing the wood for other projects! You may be able to salvage wood paneling or large planks to create new projects for a more eclectic look.

Stock Up On Storage Space

The new year brings new presents, adventures, and memories to be made. Make sure your home has enough room to hold it all! When looking for a home, storage is one of the first things a homeowner looks for. If you’re planning on remodeling resolutions this new year, make sure you have enough storage space to accommodate all the new additions. We all know clutter is not one of our New Year resolutions.

Storage options come in all shapes and sizes. If you’re just getting started, consider customizing your closet space. Adding hanging space or a shoe cubby can make your closet look more put-together and decluttered. Built-in racks are also a great option to hide any larger and distracting items such as coats and purses.

Other options may include built-in shelving for your living room. They also might be updating your kitchen cabinet space, or transforming an unused room into a practical storage unit.

Maximize Bathroom Relaxation

A stressful year can create a need for more relaxation, which is where your bathroom can benefit. Bathroom remodels can allow you to incorporate all the things you wish you had throughout the seasons. From spas to tubs, walk-in-showers, more storage, and other necessities that you may need for your lifestyle.

In addition to design elements that maximize storage, relieve stress, and make cleaning easier, several bathroom features can transform your space into a luxurious relaxation station. You can incorporate practical features like a rain shower head and hydrotherapy tub to increase water pressure for a quick shower or bath. Overhead storage for towels and toiletries, as well as mood lighting, can also help create an atmosphere of warmth and comfort.

Grow Your Garage Space

Garages can be messy places, but with a little organization, you can convert the space into one that gives your family more room to work and play. In South Carolina, many families make use of their extra space, transforming their garage into a second living space or extra bedroom.

If you’re looking to add your garage to your remodeling resolutions list this year, consider everything from floor to ceiling. Epoxy floors are a great alternative to the classic concrete floors of a garage. This will make the floors oil and grease-resistant. Adding windows allows for better lighting, and the increased airflow provides better air quality. Windows are also useful for providing a view, which creates a more pleasant atmosphere for a family room or den.

The Importance Of A Mudroom

Your home can get messy quickly, especially if you have kids. A mudroom is a great addition to your home that creates a dedicated space for storing muddy boots and coats. It also helps when bringing pets in from the elements, and stashing other outdoor equipment. It’s a great way to keep outdoor things inside without causing dirt tracks or rainwater to enter your home. A mudroom also serves as a buffer between the outdoors and your main entryway, minimizing mess and protecting your carpets.

There are tons of design options for mudrooms from basic hooks to full hall trees with cubbies and storage. Plan your entryway with a built-in bench for extra seating, plus two drawers for storing shoes and boots. Add coat hooks for coats and an umbrella rack for umbrellas. Include ample closet space and add a sliding door to protect items from dust and dirt. You’d be surprised how much you can fit into such a small space with the right design elements!
