Make Staying In More Fun with These Home Improvements

May 2021

Since May is National Home Remodeling Month, we wanted to offer some ideas on how we can help you improve your home and make it more fun this summer. Many of us enjoy going out to dinner or hitting the local sports bar for a game; however, it’s not as easy to do as it used to be. Maybe it’s time to consider ways you can bring these activities into your own home? Here are just a few suggestions, but if you would like to discuss other options to make your home more fun, give us a call.

 

Make Staying In More Fun with These Home Improvements

Alfresco Dining
Even as more people are COVID-19 vaccinated, eating at a restaurant is something that many people are not entirely comfortable doing yet. The good news is we can help you create a fine dining experience by building an alfresco dining area on your patio. One of the easiest ways to create an ambiance similar to a nice restaurant is lighting.

You can easily string bistro lights above the designated dining space and use candles and lanterns to give the area a more romantic feel. We can help with a lighting system integrated into a new deck or patio. Then you can set up the dining area to suit your needs. A small round table for a more intimate dining experience or a large rectangular table to seat family and friends are great options.

Movie Night
The COVID-19 pandemic put most movie production on hold in 2020, so even if you feel comfortable going to a movie theater, there are fewer options. We can bring the movie experience to you by transforming a room in your home into a home theater or building an addition connected to your outdoor space.

Some of the must-haves include recessed lighting to make your theater room seem like the real thing, colored LED accent lights, and an integrated control system to set the lights the way you want them.

Sound-proof walls and acoustic flooring, wall coverings, and ceiling materials are also essential to enhance the movie-watching experience. Finally, you can add a bar area for refreshments. You can stock the bar with your favorite beverages, a popcorn machine, or sweet treats to enjoy during the movie.

Game Day
Instead of going out to watch the game at a sports bar, we can help you create a sports bar in your home by remodeling an unused bedroom or basement into an in-home sports bar.

You can’t have a sports bar without cold drinks and snacks. Start with a mini-kitchen that includes a beverage center and a microwave. Depending on your budget, we can also install plumbing for a sink and dishwasher to make cleanup easier.

Wood or brick paneling can give the room an authentic, casual feel. Low-maintenance laminate or tile flooring are good choices as they are durable and not damaged by spills. Dimmable recessed lighting and a surround sound system completes the ambiance. The room can include anything a sports fan could want: multiple TVs, a full bar, a refrigerator and beverage fridge, stadium-style recliner seats, a padded booth, and signed sports memorabilia.

Whatever project you decide to take on this National Remodeling Month, be sure to use a professional design + build remodeler to ensure you make the most of your space and the job goes smoothly.
