Renovating Before The Holidays


Now that summer is coming to an end (school starts Monday in Cobb and Cherokee!), it is the prime time to start seriously thinking about those indoor renovations you have been wanting to tackle.  If you are playing host for the holidays, now is the time to get started in order to have everything done and perfect in time for the holiday season.

Upgrade Your Kitchen
Does your kitchen always seem cramped with people over for holiday get-togethers?  However you celebrate, the kitchen seems to always be at the heart of the season.  Maybe it's time to consider a mini or major makeover.  Start by assessing the things you would like changed.  Perhaps the addition of an island, new countertops, flooring and backsplash is all you need, or maybe some major construction will be involved.  Either way, you want your kitchen to be fully functional come holiday cooking time!


Finish the Basement
If you have been going back and forth about converting your basement into an extra living space, now is a good time to jump into that project.  You will be glad you tackled it.  Not only does it instantly expand your home's square footage, it can also act as a nice alternative to just a guest bedroom for relatives or friends staying overnight.  You can also turn part of it into a playroom for the younger guests to have a place of their own.  Set a budget and keep things simple.  For flooring, consider luxury vinyl or tile in your basement as these products are not as sensitive to higher moisture levels, and carpet for warmth and insulation.

Remodel the Guest Bedroom and Bathroom
A little remodeling can do wonders towards making your guests feel at home.  A new bathroom vanity and frameless glass shower enclosure are quick and easy upgrades.  A new glass shower door adds instant value to your home, and offers a sleek look that will make the bathroom appear larger.  Strip that dated old wallpaper and paint the walls.  You may also consider updating the bathroom floors and walls with new tile.  In the guest bedroom, is it time for a new mattress?  Do you need new window treatments?  Assess the carpet in your bedrooms.  We tend to update the rooms of our home that our guests see:  the family room, kitchen, and powder room, and ignore our bedrooms for years. 

Enhance Floors & More can help you get your home ready for the holidays.  Come by today and meet with a Design Consultant to begin the process.
