For many people, their home is an expression of their creativity and nothing accentuates a home like unique features that draw people in. For those of you considering remodeling your home, you must upgrade several key features in your home. It’s important to remember that you are designing this home for you and not simply for resale value. The most important features when looking at a home are the staircase, balustrade design, large picture windows, hardwood floors, and an open layout design.
A staircase is one of the most important features of a home. A well-designed stairway gives your home an elegant feel that you and your guests will love. When building a staircase, you must be sure to use the negative space that is left over underneath the stairs. You can turn this space into storage, or get more creative and turn it into a bookshelf, or find a unique purpose that fits your personality. If you don’t have much space in your home, you can install an L-shape stairway or a U-shaped stairway. These designs save space and give your home more privacy.
When you’re designing a home it’s important to consider the little details that many people overlook but put all these little details together and you will have a beautiful home. Installing quality balustrades is one of these small details that accentuate your stairway, stair risers, and artwork nearby. Solid wood balustrades give your home an elegant appeal that any craftsman will appreciate.
Every home needs large picture windows to let in natural light. This will save money on light bills and have a great curb appeal. These windows have little edging around them and focus solely on letting natural light into the house. You will want to add some beautiful curtains for privacy when needed. The best part about large picture windows is that they bring out the natural beauty in the features of your home.
There nothing better than natural beauty, and nothing is more natural than the wood your house is built on. Beautiful wood flooring will show the grain of the wood and the unique colors will vary depending on the type of wood material used in the house. It’s very expensive to install wood flooring but it is second to none in durability and aesthetic appeal. The most important aspect of having nice hardwood flooring is to maintain it so you can enjoy it for many years to come.
One of the newest trends for homeowners is to knock out walls and create an open living space. This makes your home appear larger and you will have more room to create the perfect design. People are gravitating towards an open concept because it allows them to see what’s going on in their home and they can easily move from room to room without being funneled into a doorway. If you are thinking about knocking out walls in your home make sure to call an expert, so your house is still properly supported.
